Re: What is the best DE for using Livecode with Ubuntu 18.04?

Thanks everyone for the tips, suggestions and ideas. Currently I am happy with Kubuntu v. 18.04, running the most recent Livecode on its own virtual-desktop, with Backdrop enabled. I have not had any more problems with palettes vanishing. Livecode does not interfere with anything I have running on o...

Re: What is the best DE for using Livecode with Ubuntu 18.04?

I messed around some more and found the following: If I have backdrop turned off, then things work as expected until I open the message-box. After that, if I click on a blank area of my desktop, the tools palette vanishes. Clicking on the message box brings the tools palette back. If I enable the ba...

Re: What is the best DE for using Livecode with Ubuntu 18.04?

I was able to get LC 9 to behave in Kubuntu by following these steps:

Open Livecode.
Open an app I am working on
Go to Preferences and click the "Reset All Preferences to Defaults"

Save stack

Close everything out and re-open. Viola!! No more disappearing windows.

Re: What is the best DE for using Livecode with Ubuntu 18.04?

I played around with Xubuntu. It was ok, but I ended up going back to Kubuntu. After messing around with resetting all preferences to defaults a couple of times, the Tool Bar stopped disappearing (at least for now). So far (now that I have the windows behaving) Kubuntu has been the nicest desktop fo...

Thanks for the tips. I am trying xubuntu-desktop now, and if it works out I might just do a clean install.

What is the best DE for using Livecode with Ubuntu 18.04?

Since I upgraded to 18.04 and do not care for the Gnome DE, I have been searching around for something else to use. Using latest stable LC 9. I liked budgie desktop quite a bit, but unfortunately Livecode does not like it at all...frozen desktop, gray screen, crashes and such. Deepin was promising, ...

Re: Goodbye Filemaker. I will (sort of) miss you

..So three years later: I have to say I have rarely miss Filemaker. Although Filemaker does have any easy interface to work with, and some of the advanced database designing tools were quite nice, but the high cost of maintenance and software that only runs on Mac or Windows were cost-prohibitive fo...

Re: Unable to install LC 9 on Ubuntu 18.04

It has been my experience that at the end of installing LC, it asks if I want to launch it, it just quits. But then going and launching Livecode on my own after that works fine.

Re: Can't install livecode server on xampp

I have not ever tried on a mac, but on a typical apache web-server you also have to install a few extra modules like:

sudo a2enmod cgi
sudo a2enmod alias
sudo a2enmod actions

As for the rest, scripts that relates one table to the other its all made manualy or is that a feature of the bench too ? MySQL Workbench is simply a GUI tool for working with MySQL databases and the features that are built in to MySQL. Although you can just create your own relationships through yo...

Re: Ways to set and use tables relationship with online DB

Personally I like to use MySQL Workbench. It has a nice graph tool that lets you drag our your relationships, manage foreign keys, etc.

Once you are done you can connect to your server via SSH or direct DB connection and apply your model to your database.

Re: Anyone has examples of UUID Sha1 creation process ?

Other more knowledgeable Livecoders will have to speak up to confirm this, but if you are looking for something where you can create the same results on demand given some input, then UUID might be counter-intuitive to that, since it creates a unique ID each time. You could just write your own little...
