Re: Player does not show on ubuntu

Well, like I said, I may have some lack of the proper understanding of the documentation, I just laid it out like it reads, and it reads that way all the way back to Lc 1.x. I did read all the documentation in Mc about xanmim, and much of the docs on what remains of the xanim site itself. Interestin...

Re: Player does not show on ubuntu

The player control yah, but what he is talking about (videoClipPlayer) says you can set the path to *any* player, not just xanim, it was introduced around Lc 1. Or at least thats what it seems to suggest here (bold by me) - Use the videoClipPlayer property to specify the video player used on Unix sy...

Re: Player does not show on ubuntu

Well I knew xanim was originally the player used for linux, but that is new (to me). Thank you Max! I was thinking you'd have to shell out to use another player. *Edit - my mojo must be weakening, I could not get this to work haha. On the other side of that, VLC sure does have a lot of options. I'm ...

Re: are there attempts to develop a revBrowser compatible with Linux ?

I will apologize to Kresten for steering this thread in a LONG diversion, I hope he saw the previous reply :oops: Interesting side note, Lc 8.1.9 installed no issue on anti-X with only 512mb ram, and ran pretty snappily as well. I will add though that anti-X might not be every-ones cup of tea, while...

Re: are there attempts to develop a revBrowser compatible with Linux ?

Well, I had typed a really long reply, and lost it due to a hiccup :? heh. Much shorter version - I don't know that you would want to look at it, I am only curious about whether people know about it. I started using it years ago, it was simpler then than it is now, but it is still simple compared to...

Re: Player does not show on ubuntu

I thought in that area VLC was the wunderkind of players, no matter what platform.

Mind you though, I still think an internal one should be developed, as universal as VLC can be, not everyone likes it.

Re: Not declaring Local Variables and script works ! why declaring them then ?

I'm kind of in-between both sides, I don't have strict checking on, but out of habit I tend to declare all variables (unless during testing I need an extra one on the quick, then I create it on the fly). If it stays through testing, I go back and add it to the list. Just part of the whacky happy wei...

Re: Which Arrays with mobileGetContact ?

Glad I could help Gille, sorry it took me so long to figure out the disconnect we were all having :) @ James, thanks for reporting it, if you ever go through the older docs (Lc 7.x and before), you'll find a lot that just comes out weirdly missing as versions get newer. It is almost like parts got l...

Re: Which Arrays with mobileGetContact ?

Huh, I'm surprised, maybe the problem is that Richard and I are working from older dictionaries. I believe in the newer Lc, instead of "See also" it now says "Related". Is that what is throwing you off? Or it may be the differences in the categories, now that I was flipping through the new dictionar...

Re: Which Arrays with mobileGetContact ?

And of course, it is better than being beaten about the head and shoulders with a fish :wink: All kidding aside, the links in 'see also' can lead you on to a lot of information you wouldn't normally think to look up by guessing the words you need. In most other IDEs, autocomplete in the editor *kind...

Re: Which Arrays with mobileGetContact ?

What he means is that those entries and links in the dictionary will tell you what you want to know.

Never underestimate the value of the 'see also' section.
