Re: Display errors on Linux

No problem, i was busy on other things (namely : making the other displays work better) But i do have news : we managed to reproduce the errors when displaying the apps on a Centos 6.3 (which otherwise works fine) when the depth of the display is limited to 8-bit, which is the current conf of the Ma...

Re: Display errors on Linux

So, after a few days of trials and errors, i managed to get a Mandrake 7.2 working on a VM. And it does not work, which is expected considering the gtk that comes with Mandrake 7.2 is 1.2.8 and not the 2.0.0 needed. I could try to upgrade it, but that would mean updating the whole system quite a bit...

Re: Display errors on Linux

You give me hope, bogs ! I did more digging on the X terminal : it's a minimal Mandrake 7.2 which indeed does not have gtk/gdk installed. So my next step is to check if the app can be displayed on a full Mandrake 7.2 (via virtual machine) and if it works, see how/if the X terminal can be upgraded. I...

Display errors on Linux

Greetings, Last year, i asked for help on a conversion of an old Metacard application to Livecode, mostly aimed at the communication between Livecode and C part of an application. It worked better than i expected : got all functionalities working fine, but i have problems trying to display it on a r...

Re: Metacard to Livecode

For what it's worth, I confirm that i still can't read my PMs after 4 posts. I hope the minimum is 5 (seems more logical to me than 7), but i think 10 is a good guess.

Edit : 5 posted and i still can't read. :(

Re: Metacard to Livecode

Hello again, I managed to check that the conversion is possible and i have an good idea of how to do it/how long it will take (actually, i did not have to convert the app, just study if/how it is possible). It should be enough for now (until I or another have to actually convert the thing). Thierry ...

Re: Metacard to Livecode

I won’t be able to drop the C-LC interface: the C part was using C libraries from another app (each app sending and receiving requests/data), so I would have to use those directly in Livecode, which doesn’t change much of my problem. I’ll try to convert one of the smaller stack (rebuilding the exter...

Re: Metacard to Livecode

Thanks for the advice, but I think we won’t need backward compatibility. For 3), I had thought about building a new stack that controls the existing ones and starting that from the main (or replacing the main with that), but I’m not sure how it will work concerning the interactions with the C code (...

Metacard to Livecode

Hello everyone, Last week, I have been asked to convert (least effort) an application from Metacard (2.0) on AIX to a Linux CentOS 6.3. The application has its UI written in Metacard and its main (and interface with other applications) written in (non ANSI) C. The C part starts Metacard (several sta...
