Re: Unable to install LC 9 on Ubuntu 18.04

I'm not sure the OP was trying to post FUD, it seems a relatively common post for anyone either new to linux or Lc in general, and even some old(er) timers, and I've seen (and answered) a number of posts just like it as have many others. I'm far more interested in the problem he posed, and whether ...

Re: Unable to install LC 9 on Ubuntu 18.04

During installation, the installer correctly stated that if installing for all users, admin privileges would be required, but then did not put up the dialog asking for the password as has been the case in the past. Using 'sudo' at the start of the installation resolved this, but should not be requi...

openSUSE Leap 42.3, unsupported but WORKS!

Leap 42.3, the newest version of openSUSE's traditional "regular-release" distro, has been released. A quick test of LiveCode 8.1.5 and 9.0-dp6 reveals no OS related problems running LiveCode under this distro/version. I installed Leap with a KDE Plasma desktop, using the openSUSE installer defaults...

Re: Using Right-Click Contextual menu in Linux

right-click contextual menu works as expected here in LC 8.1.3 under openSUSE Tumbleweed.

Re: which distro?

My everyday system runs openSUSE Tumbleweed. LiveCode works very well, including the dictionary. The only issue I have is the Start Center closes by itself when I launch LiveCode but it opens from the menu and works fine after that. I have recently tested several other "unsupported" distros and post...

Re: ANN: New dictionary

Max, I don't want to hijack your thread here, but regardless of whatever problems you are finding in LC8+, "the dictionary doesn't work under Linux" is not a euphemism for anything. It's a blunt declaration which happens to be logically false. If you were to say it isn't working in some distros or i...

Re: ANN: New dictionary

Max, this is excellent work and I salute your efforts, but I object very strongly to you saying "Livecode 8 dictionary doesn't work on Linux..." This is absolutely not correct and creates a false impression for people who may be wondering about Linux support. Yes, it is known the dictionary is not c...

Re: Open process

Would it work to use the '-progress url' option and monitor the resultant file? From the ffmpeg manpages: Send program-friendly progress information to url. Progress information is written approximately every second and at the end of the encoding process. It is made of "key=value" lines. key consist...

Re: Unsupported, but does it work? openSUSE

Just a quick update to say openSUSE Leap 42.2 Beta 2 is out and seems to play nicely with LiveCode 8.1, so it's still looking hopeful that LiveCode will function well with the next version of Leap when it's released in November 2016.

Re: Unsupported, but does it work? KaOS

There was no need to do anything other than install a piece of software from the distro's official repo which installed whatever dependencies were missing. Also, there are several distros which don't use either rpm or deb and KaOS is one of them.

Re: Unsupported, but does it work? openSUSE

I assume you're referring to the Start Center. The dictionary works and standalones using the browser widget work as expected. The start center is selected to open on startup. Switching to "classic start center" produces the same behavior.

Unsupported, but does it work? KaOS

Full official Linux support is extremely limited, but LiveCode runs well in many unsupported distros. Sadly, not as well in a few others. KaOS is definitely an outlier distro. A self standing project using its own packages, it offers only KDE Plasma and has a predominant focus on the QT toolkit. Thi...

Re: Unsupported, but does it work? openSUSE

For someone who may want to distribute LiveCode applications to Linux users, it may be important to note that while the IDE does not work in Leap 42.1, some standalones do. Exactly why the IDE fails is a mystery. The IDE is itself is a very complicated LiveCode app and while its performance suggests...

Unsupported, but does it work? 2 Arch derivatives

Full official Linux support is extremely limited, but LiveCode runs well in many unsupported distros. Sadly, not as well in a few others. Here's a brief synopsis of my experience testing LiveCode in two distros that are based on Arch; Manjaro and Antergos. Again, KDE Plasma 5, 64 bit using LiveCode ...
