Re: Installing LiveCode Business on Linux Today???

You should not expect 32bit apps to open in a 64bit distro I don't know why not. That was my shorthand way of saying you can't hold the expectation that it will "just work" in any and every installation. Distros vary in how easy they make 32 bit compatibility, and many distros have heavy and light ...

Re: Installing LiveCode Business on Linux Today???

I'm pretty sure the problem is your ARM CPU is not supported. I believe Livecode requires an Intel/AMD CPU.

Re: Installing LiveCode Business on Linux Today???

Today I downloaded Ubuntu 20.04 and installed it as a VirtualBox machine without installing any additional software or packages not installed with the "normal" (bloated desktop) installation. I downloaded the new stable LiveCode 9.6.0 release. After making it executable it installed and ran without ...

Re: RELEASE LiveCode 9.6.0 DP-3

Richmond's comment about supported Linux versions is totally valid. Livecode needs to be supported on current versions of the supported distros.

Re: Posix paths and shell commands

You should be able to use single quotes instead of double quotes to wrap the path. This obviates the need to wrestle with " & quote " syntax.

Re: Toolbar and KDE

I understand the KDE developers think "Activities" is a great feature but it seems to be mostly ignored by common users. It doesn't offer a whole lot of advantages over using plain old virtual desktops as far as my usage goes.

Re: Toolbar and KDE

KDE, I had a functioning solution, which was when working with LC to have a separate desktop for working with Livecode and only Livecode. In fact, I seem to recall that KDE allows you to name your desktops Are you referring to the normal virtual desktops or the Plasma "Activities" feature? Did this...

Re: Toolbar and KDE

Richard, ghetto makes it clear that it's working with the backdrop enabled, but not so much when it's not. That is roughly my experience. I downloaded Kubuntu and can confirm it behaves as every other distro when running Livecode under KDE Plasma. With the backdrop off, windows disappear and reappea...

Re: Toolbar and KDE

This has been discussed some on at least one other thread here . It's a problem in all distros running KDE. The message box can get involved as can plugin stacks and the Property Inspector. Various stacks will disappear and reappear as you click on other stacks or the desktop. I have found that keep...

Re: macOS 10.14 Mojave compatibility.

Since Light/Dark mode is a part of an OS, and LC is supposed to be able to inherit default colours from the host OS, I think it is important for LC to support the Light/Dark mode. I admit it's only a cosmetic issue, but when I make apps, I would like them to behave and look well. It happens that I ...

Could it have something to do with:

Re: virtual desktop - spaces

I wasn't referring to any plan to have the app try to set or enforce its own rule. I meant the user setting up the window rule, which would be a simple rule telling the window manager to always place the app on all desktops. The app isn't aware or doing any talking, it just takes orders from the win...

Re: virtual desktop - spaces

Apple have been b*ggering around with their much-vaunted SPACES, and have not really done much to make them easy to use like the multiple desktop thingies on Linux distros, or this thing for MacOS 10.3-10.5 PPC that really rocked: WorkspaceManager.png I used and loved CodeTek's VirtualDesktop Pro u...

Re: virtual desktop - spaces

Can you find where Spaces stores its configuration file that tells it where to put things? This would be a per user config. If you can find it and read and write to it, you could be able to duplicate the configuration for some other app that displays on all desktops with your own app. You could have...
