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...

Re: virtual desktop - spaces

It appears that when you right+click an application's dock icon in MacOS you will see a contextual menu that allows you to assign the app to a specific desktop. You can also assign it to ALL desktops. This should do what you want, no?

Re: virtual desktop - spaces

On Linux one would write a simple window rule to do this. It would just tell the window manager to show the app on all desktops. Can't you do that with "Spaces" in MacOS? For a single window app under Linux, at least in KDE Plasma, you can do this with a contextual menu by clicking on an icon in the...

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.

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...
