Re: Error executing shell echo command through LC

Try using the whole path to md5sum in your command. This kind of problem commonly arises because the command is not in the PATH of the shell being used by the Livecode shell() function. That's always the first thing to check when the function fails but the command works in your user terminal. You co...

Re: Unsupported, but does it work? 2 Arch derivatives

If you go to https://downloads.livecode.com/livecode/ you will see all downloads from version 4.5.0 of Livecode. The latest official stable version is 9.0.1, there is a "release-candidate" of 9.0.2 (rc2). 64-bit versions are listed as "Linux 64". "Community" is the open-source/free-beer version. I'm...

Re: Unsupported, but does it work? 2 Arch derivatives

I will try a a non KDE version to see how that runs, given the initial difficulty under KDE. I'll post below when I've done that. I take it you never got that far eh? :D I noticed that, too and thought hmmmmm... I didn't do that... :roll: :oops: :lol: My Manjaro VM was hosed during an update. This ...

Re: Unsupported, but does it work? 2 Arch derivatives

If you've got a 64-bit Antergos installation you should be able to install a 64-bit Livecode version without adding any i386 libs. I am currently running Antergos with Plasma and didn't have to install anything specifically to get Livecode to work. I have a VM with Antergos running Cinnamon and Live...

Re: Tools Palette likes to disappear

There is some discussion of this issue in this thread: http://forums.livecode.com/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=31398 I run Antergos (based on Arch) with Plasma and have this problem. It happens on every distro I've tested with Plasma. There are worse problems on some (but not all) distros running Xfce, incl...

Re: How to install Livecode on the last Linux versions

Also, this should only affect the installer if you are installing for "ALL users", in /opt, should it not? Yes, as mentioned above - Another thing to note here is that if you are installing Lc for only you.. Sorry! I read most of the thread, including *most* of your post you quoted here, but skippe...

Re: How to install Livecode on the last Linux versions

Whether or not gksu is removed depends on which distro you're talking about. This is not, as of yet, a universal decision. Of course, where it affects officially supported distros, something needs to happen. Whether it be removing the "All users" option or implementing it another way. Also, this sho...

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

I tried this - backdrop "on" - on my Antergos/KDE computer and in the VM running Fedora 28/KDE (the Fedora/KDE spin). It mostly works. It seems that the tools palette still can be made to disappear when opening a property inspector but once the tools palette is brought back, things seem to behave no...

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

Richard, the release notes list supported distros without reference to desktop environment. Those distros all make a variety of DEs available for use in the mainstream release that Livecode officially supports, including KDE. I can understand that having a variety of DEs and a variety of window mana...

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

I think there is a problem with KDE and LC 9.0. I have the same experience with the tools palette (it seems this is what you are talking about when you say "tool bar") and sometimes certain ancillary windows. It can be caused here by opening an inspector. It gets more entertaining when opening the m...

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.

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: 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...
