Hi Everyone, I've just rolled the new contributions I've received since
the last release into a new release of the dark syntax scheme for Geany,
geany-dark. The new release adds support for vala, docbook & yaml and can be

I saw an update to geany posted on the misc OpenBSD list and decided
to try it out on my work desktop. As a long time vim user I was quite
suprised that I actually really like this software! So I will start by
saying thanks :)
Here are some ideas I had:
* Have the search box as a bar (like the firefox search bar), so as
not to obscure the editor pane.
* Same with "goto line".
* Provide a way to navigate the sidebar tabs and panes using only the
keyboard. Yup, you can focus it, but how can I change tabs?
* Add an ISC license template.
* Add a markers tab in the sidebar.
All in all, keep it slim. One of the best things about geany (in my
eyes), is that its very useful at about one quarter the weight of

I'm having to do a pile of work on some old ASP websites, always
VBScript, and it's getting quite annoying that the default scripting
language to VBScript (or Python). This excerpt from the patched
filetypes.xml says it all:
# default scripting language for ASP set to VBScript
# 0x000002 = VBScript
# 0x000003 = Python
While I was in there, I added a couple of VBScript keywords too.
NB: my C is a bit rusty, and my knowledge of the Geany codebase is
almost non-existent, so I went for simple/works over best. Please feel
free to revise as necessary.

is anybody on this list running Geany on OS X? I'm desperately trying to get
it to run and I think I'm quite close.. but somehow it seems that I'm
missing something..here's what I did so far:
- Dowloaded latest version via SVN,
- compile, make and install went smoothly, I have the Geany executable in
-starting Geany in xterm (and also in an OS X Terminal) produces the
Xlib: extension "RANDR" missing on display "/tmp/launch-NHDS34/:0".
symlink: No such file or directory
** INFO: Geany 0.19 (svn >= r4253), GTK+ 2.16.6, GLib 2.20.5
** INFO: No config file found, try to use global configuration.
** INFO: Could not load libvte.so, embedded terminal support disable
..Unfortunately this is all information I get so far...
So here are my questions:
- Is the Xlib: ... error the critical error? If yes, how can I fix it?
...Google tells me that this error is not critical, but I get no Geany
Program Window at all, so I can't really believe that this behaviour should
be ignored...so far I found no solution for the RANDR error, I updated X11
core files, but the error keeps poping up...*sigh*
- which symlink is missing?
Any hint would be highly appreciated!
Thanks in advance,
I'm extending my filetypes.perl to support Moose and MooseX::Declare
Some of them, however, are not a single word but two. For example:
I would prefer to to add "is", "mutable" and "dirty" as primary
keywords, as they're meaningless alone. Is it possible to have something
regex-base such as:
parsed to search for keywords?
BTW: Geany is great!

Just to mention I wrote a little script (attached) to use as Geany's
Grep tool that converts the Find in Files options to 'ack' format, then
(See http://betterthangrep.com/ for info on ack).
Useful to easily ignore version control directories, use Perl regular
The script is by no means perfect:
* Currently it hangs Geany whilst looking for search results - maybe a
Perl expert can work out how to fix this though?
* Only tested with ack 1.78
* No support for ack --thpppt ;-)
would it be possible to remember the folding status
for all open files (or all files in the recent file list) ?
Each morning, I find myself folding away for a couple
of minutes until happy with my files :)

Oops, that didn't make into the ML somehow :(
How can I jump to/from terminal while I am in main editor? I would
like to be able to do this to run my program and not need to move my
hands from keyboard to mouse. I tried looking at the manul, but found
no info in keyboard shortcuts.
