Re: Want to stop scripts running when I am debugging

It's not a "suggestion"... it's in the dictionary. :P

Re: Want to stop scripts running when I am debugging

OpenStack handlers should be in the *card* script, not in the stack script.
That will also avoid the kind of error you ran into.

...and putting an answer statement in a rawKeyUp handler is pretty daft, IMO.

Re: The death of grass?

@LCMark- I don't think "membership" numbers are a good way to compare apples and oranges. AFAICT there's no way to unsubscribe once you're registered an account here. So if someone registers, posts once, and never returns that counts the same as someone (I'm looking at you, Klaus) who has posted mor...

Re: Message hierarchy when external stack are used

If they're all being loaded at the same level (as in "start using xyzzy") then yes, the last one ordered has precedence, and on down the stack of turtles in order of when they were loaded.
If necessary you can change the order by loading one of the stacks again, so that it stays on top of the pile.

Re: LC on ReactOS?

Indeed the web site is up and running, although the OS is at version 0.4.12 alpha (some two years after being at 0.4.10).
I stopped reading when I got to
Imagine running your favorite Windows applications
If I wanted an OS that almost worked I'd probably go with Micro$oft's version. :P

Given that it's the OP's first and only post I suggest we ignore the troll.

LOL. To more-or-less quote Woody Allen's gag:

Re: Windows 8.1 installer doesn't launch..

LOL. That was me tripping over my own feet, probably because of looking backward into the past while walking forward into the wall. Back when that wasn't working I installed using sudo, and I ended up with the ~/.runrev/components directory owned by root. Now that I chowned the enclosing directory I...

Re: Windows 8.1 installer doesn't launch..

Ah, no. Sorry. Is that an ubuntu 18 that you upgraded from a 16 base? If so you've still got gksu in the system. A simple 'which gksu' will tell you. And even if you install for the current user only (as I do to keep the /opt directory clean) the installer will fail without sudo or gksu. Uninstallin...

Re: Windows 8.1 installer doesn't launch..

bogs-

I see from the video you're running ubuntu 16.04. That still has gksu in the distro. That's why you can install without sudo.
And since you're not using sudo to elevate privilege there's no interaction to make the button disappear.
