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.

Re: Toolbar and KDE

KDE, I had a functioning solution, which was when working with LC to have a separate desktop for working with Livecode and only Livecode. In fact, I seem to recall that KDE allows you to name your desktops Are you referring to the normal virtual desktops or the Plasma "Activities" feature? Did this...

Re: Toolbar and KDE

Richard, ghetto makes it clear that it's working with the backdrop enabled, but not so much when it's not. That is roughly my experience. I downloaded Kubuntu and can confirm it behaves as every other distro when running Livecode under KDE Plasma. With the backdrop off, windows disappear and reappea...

Re: Toolbar and KDE

This has been discussed some on at least one other thread here . It's a problem in all distros running KDE. The message box can get involved as can plugin stacks and the Property Inspector. Various stacks will disappear and reappear as you click on other stacks or the desktop. I have found that keep...

Re: macOS 10.14 Mojave compatibility.

Since Light/Dark mode is a part of an OS, and LC is supposed to be able to inherit default colours from the host OS, I think it is important for LC to support the Light/Dark mode. I admit it's only a cosmetic issue, but when I make apps, I would like them to behave and look well. It happens that I ...

Could it have something to do with:

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...
