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.
[image: Inline image 1]
I wonder if this is possible in geany.
When I have clicked function name, I want the definition of it will
appear in lower window.
And when I have clicked lower window, I want upper window jump to the
I think I am too much accustomed to source insight.
I've tried to find this feature and also tried code navigation
Code navigation plug-in supports feature similar to this but I want
If this is not possible in geany, please recommend me some multi
platform editor which supports this feature.

I have a folder with symbolic links to files in various places. I would
like to be able to search in those files.
It works fine using:
Linux Mint 13 (maya), kernel Linux 3.2.0-23-generic
The search in the folder with symbolic link files does not work using:
Linux Mint 14 (nadia), kernel Linux 3.5.0-17-generic
What can I do to make it work at my Linux 14 machine?
I am not a technical minded person, I can use the menu Search => Find in
Files and enter a search term, I have no idea how to use grep or other
nerdy things, thus I am looking for an non-geeky solution, thanks!
I'm new a the list, so just a few word to introduce myself : I am mostly
a PHP developer and I often write for the french magazine "GNU/Linux
Magazine France". I'm using Geany on a daily basis for a long time, and
enjoy it more than any other IDE.
As a PHP developper, I recently discover a new programming language,
dedicated to native PHP extensions. Its name is Zephir, you could learn
more here : http://zephir-lang.com. Its philosophy is to associate the
PHP syntax style with the efficiency of C to enable long-time PHP
developer to run easily their own extensions as fast as C ones and to
code them as quickly as PHP scripts.
So I adopted Zephir, and will certainly use it on a daily basis, as
Geany. So I naturally tried to code Zephir sources with Geany and to
make my own /filestype.Zephir.conf/. You can see the current state of
this work here : https://github.com/taophp/zephir-geany-fileconf
The fact is that if I set the Zephir file as a PHP file using the menu
/Document->Set filetype/ (I suppose, my geany front end is in French),
the symbols tabs detects all my classes, functions, properties, and all
perfectly, but in the editing area, there is no syntax highlighting
until I add the opening PHP tag "<?php" - but the Zephir compiler will
not accept it. My first attempt to solve this issue was to copy the
filetypes.php in a filetypes.Zephir.conf, and then tried to modify it to
avoid the need of the opening PHP tag. My second attempt was to find
another filetypes.* that fit more my needs. My choice was filetypes.cs,
and this was the base of my project on Gitbub. Now syntax highlighting
is correct, but the symbols tab does not work...
Could anyone could tell me how to deal with this issue ?

Is there a way to redirect F1 or perheaps shift F1 to show help by project?
I mean if I hit F1 while editing *.py to get python help, if i edit
*.asm to get asm help etc...
It can be done within "Set build Command" but I can assign hotkey only
for 1'st item in each group but is already taken (and needed)
In the manual there are stated:
Keyboard shortcuts can be defined for the first two filetype menu items,
the first three independent menu items, the first two execute menu items
and the fixed menu items. In the keybindings configuration dialog
(seeKeybinding preferences <#keybinding-preferences>) these items are
identified by the default labels shown in theBuild Menu
It is currently not possible to bind keyboard shortcuts to more than
these menu items.
But I can set keybinding only to 1'st item in each group. How to do with
I have some strange compiler but want to have option for geany to
highlight the line with error.
But I have no idea how to setup 'error regular expression' to manage that.
In the output of compiler there are line describing error in format:
path/file space lineNumber error message.
/home/slavko/PLC/plc.asm 94 nepoznan ukaz >MMOV
thet means the file '/home/slavko/PLC/plc.asm' has error in line 94 and
'nepoznan ukaz >MMOV' describe error.
So what expression i need tor that?
thanks in advice...
