Re: How to Keep Tool Bar on working plan ? even with Ctrl+T

This is an issue with the LiveCode IDE that surfaced early in version 9 and became a problem in version 8.1.10 (backported "improvements'?) after having not been a problem in earlier versions. I think it's incorrect to suggest that Plasma is responsible. There are issues involving the tools palette ...

Re: How to Keep Tool Bar on working plan ? even with Ctrl+T

I don't know what a "working plan" is in terms of UI elements, but if you're seeing the LC Menu/Toolbar submarine beneath other windows maybe just set the style of revMenubar to palette? From his first post he seems to be talking about the habit of the tools palette to disappear in Plasma and the t...

Re: RSS or ATOM feeds of the forum.

Many RSS readers have an auto-discover feature which will find the feed link for websites which have a feed but don't make it easy to find and subscribe to. In this age of "social" media and nonsense, people running blogs are being discouraged from publishing a feed link because it reduces "connecti...

Re: How to Keep Tool Bar on working plan ? even with Ctrl+T

I use XFCE with LiveCode, and have done since LC 2.2 with no problems whatsoever. Not to gang up on you, Richmond... It might be helpful to curious readers for you to specify you're having good fortune using Xubuntu. If you've switched distros then let us know what's working for you now, please! I ...

Re: How to Keep Tool Bar on working plan ? even with Ctrl+T

My experience testing LiveCode in various distros and desktop environments is that the IDE functions similarly in Plasma in all the tested distros. It's a little inconvenient but nothing showstopping. Some other desktop environments are much more variable. It's been a while since I spent time testin...

Re: How to Keep Tool Bar on working plan ? even with Ctrl+T

I see you're using Plasma. This is a problem in Plasma. Sometimes it's related to whether or not the message box or property inspector is open. You may notice the property inspector plays hide and seek, too, sometimes. Typically, clicking on the main menu bar or a working stack brings the tools pale...

Re: Browser widget does not suppüort WebGL2

Sorry, Richard, I don't have any helpful advice. The IDE itself behaves differently in Arch depending on which DE you run but I haven't really looked into this specifically regarding the browser widget. I might now, just for fun, but even then I could only report my experience. I don't have any of t...

Re: Browser widget does not suppüort WebGL2

On Arch Linux / Plasma the browser widget functions and shows it does support WebGL2, according to the test page.

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.
