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.

Dear Geany Users,
I have only recently rubbed the magic lamp, so please excuse my naivety; I
have two questions:
1. Is there a setting or plugin that permits line backgrounds to alternate
2. Is there a way to add a left margin / a small space between the
beginning of the lines and the folding and number margins?
First, thanks for a terrific editor.
Is there a way to pretty format json files? Right now such files are 1
wrapped line, pretty impossible to inspect meaningfully. It would
just[*] be a matter of slapping some \n after a , and indenting based on
brace/bracket match level. I think.
As for colorization, the wiki on json has been duly noted, but it
doesn't really help much as the string key isn't differentiated from the
string value in the key/value pair. Perhaps a json key could be a
string followed by a : as a new definition. This isn't as important as
Amazingly, there is really a dearth of linux editors that (I've found)
is able to format json. (Web based is out, eclipse with a plugin can do
it but that's no way to go for casual file inspection, command line
isn't it either).
Just to share the good news, for those like me that are stuck in Ubuntu 10
for some weird reason...
Chow Loong Jin had just released Geany v.1.24 .deb packages for Lucid :)
Thanks a lot, Chow Loong!
Best regards to all,
Upcoming weekend (23th/24th August) there will be a booth on
German FrOScon in Sankt Augustin/Bonn¹ -- real nice German FLOSS
developer conference. This booth will be togehter with folks of Xfce
and mostly done by Enrico. So If you are around Cologne upcoming
weekend, pass by at Sankt Augustin and maye say »hi«.
I just want to let you know that Geany will have a booth at Prague
Linux² Days by start of October. The event is happing at weekend 5-6th
October in Prague. So Czech, Slovak and all people around: You are
welcome to join or visit us there and meet Enrico, Jiri and me ;) The
booth will again be together with our (German) friends of Xfce.
I'm sorry I must be missing it. Geany 1.22 on Debian and I can not find
the code folding in the preferences to turn it off. It must be there?

I have installed Geany on both Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, and the fonts
in dark themes look aliased with a tint of green or sometimes yellow. In
light themes, black foreground on white background, the text looks a lot
better. It seems that GTK does not use ClearType. Is there any way to
improve the display quality for the text layout/rendering? Everything
else looks decent.
