LiveCode on UNIX

https://livecode.com/docs/9-5-0/language/livecode-script/ states: "That means you can run any application you create on all major modern operating systems, including Windows, Linux, Unix and Mac OS." (emphasis mine) Is this true? If so, how does one generate a standalone for UNIX? Or should Linux st...

Re: Opening a camera raw file

you insensitive clots Ha, Ha, Ha . . . Why, pray tell would you want any of those image formats on Linux when desktop Linux is now quite capable of handling JPG, PNG, BMP and GIF? - Sledgehammer-dvd.jpg - Would you like Klaus and myself to fly over and cover you with kisses so you feel better?

Re: Opening a camera raw file

Re: Opening a camera raw file

that was a long way to say no
I didn't intend that, it is just when I saw all those strange suffixes I thought I'd find
out what on earth they all stood for.

Re: Opening a camera raw file

Well, here's what the documentation says: "The import command can import GIF, JPEG, PNG, BMP, XWD, XBM, XPM, or PBM, PGM, or PPM files." Mind you, I cannot help feeling that a lot of those image formats are either extremely obscure or outdated. Um: XWD (X Window Dump) format. An XBM file is an X Bit...

I'll stick with XFCE: imagine Windows XP without
all the %^&*$ of Windows. :D

Re: Trying to install on Ubuntu 16.04

I wouldn't bother fiddling around with Parallels. Where I live, at least, I can pick up a 3 year old PC for 45 Euros and have a 'buntu Linux up and running on it via a USB boot and install in about 45 minutes. Download the 'buntu version of your choice onto your Mac and then use Balena Etcher [ http...

Re: Trying to install on Ubuntu 16.04

I run LiveCode 9.5 on quite a few old PCs (both 32 and 64 bit) running Xubuntu 18.04, having previously deployed LiveCode 8.1 on Xubuntu 16.10. I have just installed LiveCode 9.5 on a Zorin OS 64-bit install and it runs delightfully. I run LiveCode 9.5 on a 64-but laptop running Kubuntu with no prob...

Re: Will HTML5 development continue?

Of course such stacks can't contain features that don't work in a HTML5 standalone, for example some widgets. Maybe I'm being a bit picky, but I have never thought of LiveCode widgets as being a part of the LiveCode language, more as 'cherries' (as in 'cherries on a cake') one can add on top of a s...

Re: Will HTML5 development continue?

Of course a "playground" (will become soon a primitive IDE) doesn't look like a LiveCode stack.
Thanks for taking the time to explain that. 8)

Re: Will HTML5 development continue?

Honestly, I expect you to have such a level. Why? The last time I touched ANYTHING outside LiveCode in any sort of serious way was Visual BASIC 5 in 2003. I develop within an extremely limited field for desktop machines only, using only LiveCode. I would also be interested to find out where I have ...
