How can I set "display-tab-width" to 8 spaces and "indent-width" to 4
current editor preferences dialog?
I couldn't do that using latest SVN version of geany.
Still there is no distinguish between display tabs width and single
At least I still can't set up the required configuration....
I use Geany (version 0.14) quite extensively on Ubuntu (Hardy).
I have tried to create a tags file manually from the W3 spec
(http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/propidx.html). Then I copied the file to
"/home/gelie/.geany/tags", but somehow it does not work. Is there
something else that I need to modify or am I missing something ?
Thank you in advance.

I am desperately attempting to build Geany (0.14) on OS X (10.5.4). I
feel that I am close to success, but being relatively new to all of
this (building apps on Unix-like machines, and new-ish to Unix all
together), I am finding myself at a dead end.
I successfully built GTK2, by following the directions found here:
After the build was successful, it didn't really say much, but I found
that build generated the dir "/Users/<username>/gtk/inst" that has the
This looks to me, like a valid GTK2 dir structure. However, when I
attempt to run ./configure on Geany, I get the following:
checking for GTK... configure: error: Package requirements (gtk+-2.0
>= 2.6.0) were not met:
No package 'gtk+-2.0' found
Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.
Alternatively, you may set the environment variables GTK_CFLAGS
and GTK_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.
I tried setting PKG_CONFIG_PATH to the path I mentioned above (and
several other of its subdirs), but I still get the same message.
I'm not sure where to go from here, but again, I feel that I am close
Do you have any suggestions?
Already for some decades I am searching for an IDE for fortran.
Today I stumbled into Geany.
At the moment I use a realively new fortran dialect on both Windows boxes
linux boxes in combination with the g95 compiler and/or the Portland
I am wondering if someone has (good) experience with the combination
Geany+g95 (on any machine).
Please let me know how to configure the system and let me know if this will
result in anything beyond a syntax highlighting text-editor (i.e. including
smart compilation, debugging, ...).
I'm a noob on this list, so i hope it's OK to ask a few questions.
I'm currently running Geany v0.14 on Slackware 12.1 with all updates and
I have found
Set Include and Arguments>>
Java Source File Commands
Compile javac "%f"
Execute java "%e"
I'm sorry if this is a dumb question, but I've tried searching through
Geany, looking over the documentation and searching the archives, but I
don't seem to be able to find an answer.
If I have multiple versions of Sun's JDK installed, is there a
command(s) I can enter into Geany to select one specific version to
compile and execute. Say I want to use 1.5.0 or 1.6.0 while having them
I'm going to be taking a Java-130 class and I'm not sure of which Java
version I'm going to be required to use. But, my system is happy with
1.6.0, so I'd like to not have to change my system-wide java if I can
just modify the commands in Geany.
I just created a new Windows build based on SVN r2891.
- latest GTK runtime environment (GTK 2.12.11, GLib
- moved geany.exe and GTK libraries into a bin/ subdirectory
- included some missing files
- (maybe other things, last Windows build is quite old, about 200
Please be aware that this build is not compatible with previously
released external plugins (geanyvc, spellcheck, ...).
But the included internal plugins will work.
I had some problems with gettext support (i18n) on a German Windows
2000 box whereas everything worked fine on a German Windows XP box. It
would be cool if anyone could test this on a non-English Windows 2000
computer and give some feedback whether there is anything localized or
whether all strings are in English.

SWMBO finds that her document tabs occasionally just up and disappear on
her. No error message or anything, they just... vanish! They quite
happily reappear on a "Toggle All Additional Widgets", but may disappear
again at some point.
This has been happening for a couple of weeks, across a few builds from
SVN (including one just yesterday morning - r2879). I'm running Geany
built at the same times from the same SVN revisions, and have not seen
the problem even once.
I strongly suspect some interaction with the NVIDIA driver, as we
basically differ on hardware: both of us running Fedora 9 x86-64 updated
with the latest patches, but she's on a desktop Intel P4 with NVIDIA
GeForce FX 5200, and I'm on a laptop AMD Athlon X2 TK-55 with NVIDIA
GeForce 7000M; maybe the latest NVIDIA driver has a bug on 5* series
The only other thing I can think of is that she is of the habit of
selecting a dozen or more files in the sidebar and opening them all at
once, to make global changes in them. I always open one file at a time,
and rarely have more files open than the file tabs can display.
a) have you seen this before? (when / how?)
b) any tips on diagnosing it?

just for your interest, some days ago we changed a few things on the
- separated Plugin Wishlist from Plugins page:
the plugin wishlist has now its own page and can still be edited. The
plugin page only holds general information about plugins and a list of
known plugins. The main reason for this was to reduce security risks by
getting malicious links in the world-editable pages. So, if you want to
visit any link listed on the plugin wishlist or the Contributions pages
be careful as they could be faked and link to another target than
exposed in the link text. Always remember there are spammers, botters
and other bad people out there :(.
- related to the above problem we enabled a security feature called
'URLApprove' which hides any new links which are added when editing
wiki pages until an admin (Nick, Frank and me) has approved these URLs.
It's something like a moderation but just for URLs not for content. If
you find any links which aren't working and have a 'approval' text next
to them, just mail one of us and/or wait until someone of us checked it.
- partly related to these issues we enabled RSS feeds, you can
basically subscribe a RSS feed of any of the wiki pages. The most
useful page is the AllRecentChanges page which lists any site changes.
The link to the RSS (2.0) feed for this page is:
- the Download/Releases page has been split to separate all the third
party package links into an own page and to keep the basic Releases
page small and list only 'official' Geany packages (source + Windows

Sorry if this has been asked before, but I couldn't find it in the
archives. Is it possible in the current release of Geany to have more than
2 buffers when using most recently used switching via Ctrl-tab? 2 buffers
is better than none, and I much prefer switching via MRU to just moving down
the list with Ctrl-pageup/down. If it is not possible in the current
version, is it a possible addition in the future?
Thanks for any help you can give.
