I've been happily using Geany for a little while now, coding mostly in
Python. I have a couple questions:
1. For a dark color scheme, eg Vibrant Ink, how do i get the active
line to not be highlighted. White text + white highlighting =
invisible text on the line I'm trying to edit. Arrgh!
2. Any debugger advice for python? I am finding winpdb is pretty slow
and actually crashes on my machine a fair amount.
I'm on a windows 7 64 bit installation.

Sorry for my late reply -- I just turned on Digest mode so it took a
while to see your message.
1. I have Geany 1.23, Ubuntu 12.04. Yes, my file is .py
I went into Geany and did these extra things: Turn off "Tab key indents"
in Indentation, Turn on "Snippet completion" in Completions.
Still, when I hit a tab key, it just inserts white spaces (sometimes 1,
2. What's the best way to raise interest in a feature like Code minimap?
I looked at the Feature Request page on SourceForge and they seem to
request mainly support for miscellaneous language. Whereas some of the
slick Sublime-like features (minimap, multiple cursors, put both quotes
around a highlighted word) would seem to be universally appealing.
Thanks, - Anh

Hello Geany users,
I have just installed Geany on Ubuntu and when I open the preferences I
have tab General, Interface, ..., Various but after Various* I do not have
the Terminal tab (see image below)*, which is what I wanted to access to
paste and copy commands to the terminal to execute small pieces of code.
Have I made a mistake in installing geany (i used on the command line: sudo
apt-get install geany)
Thank you very much for help.

There is one thing that has botheres me about Geany for quite some time:
How can I make Geany jump to the start/end of a VISUAL line?
Lets say I have a very long line of text. I'll enable the visual line break feature, so I can still see the entire text on the screen, though make it break into multiple visual lines. Now, I'd like to hit [Home] or [End] to jump to the beginning/end of the CURRENT visual line. However, Geany will make the cursor jump to the start/end of the actual line (not the visible one).
Is there anything I can to about that, in terms of configuration?
Tell Geany To Launch HTML Files In Mozilla Firefox on Xubuntu 14.04?
Running Xubuntu 14.04 L.T.S. 64Bit fully updated.
Running Geany version 1.23.1 from Ubuntu Software Store.
When I "execute" an HTML file, Geany opens the HTML file in Google Chrome?
How can I tell Geany to execute and open HTML files in Mozilla Firefox?
I know it is Build/Set Build Commands/Execute commands,
but I have no idea what to type there to open HTML files using Mozilla
Thanks in advance!
If there are people on the list who want to use Geany for R
programming on GNU/Linux, then I would greatly appreciate their
feedback on the attached files:
- filetypes.r, a configuration file for R with menu commands for
sourcing, pasting, scripting
- geany_tags.R, an R script that generates a Geany tag file for the R language
- base.r.tags, an example of tag file produced by geany_tags.R
- howto.pdf, a set of notes to help you configure Geany for the R language.
The idea is to have R programming with syntax highlighting and code
navigation, function autocompletion and calltips, ability to source
files and send lines of code to R, and R help by right-clicking.
Thanks in advance,
I have a minor technical question about custom build-menu commands and the
context-action command for a specific file type.
I have noticed that build-menu commands accept command chaining such
command_1 && command_2 && command_3
whereas chaining does not seem to work when specifying a context-action
command. The only workaround I found in the latter case was to call the shell
with the -c string option:
sh -c 'command_1 && command_2 && command_3'
which effectively converts the chain of commands into a single one.
I hope this makes sense -- or am I missing something about Geany?
Thanks for your feedback,
