...as well as the use of keys for accelerators that do other things just
by reason of what they're called (like Page Up, Print Screen etc.).
And they don't. Frankly that's scary to a non-developer like me.
Besides which, I have tried half a dozen accelerator key combinations
with F-keys that I know aren't// reserved, and _they don't work no
matter what I do (see my previous email re: macros and rebooting).
Believe me, if I knew any Python, or could get someone in the Google
Group to answer my posts, I'd be doing with AutoKey instead.
..I either reboot my machine, or log off and back on under the same
user-name. I'm the only one who uses my computer, so there are no other
accounts on it besides root.
Simply quitting and restarting Geany, which should work, doesn't, full stop.

there have been some problems with the current installation image of Geany
1.29 for OS X which caused it couldn't be started on older OS X versions -
for more info, see
I've just re-built and re-uploaded a new image that should fix the problem.
You can get it at the usual place here:
There have been no other changes so if everything worked for you, there's
no need to download this version.
A bonus feature of this build is that it should run on OS X as old as 10.6.
I am currently trying to create a custom lexer for a language called
I followed the instructions on the hacking section of the manual
managed to compile a local geany with the new lexer.
However, I am encountering a Segfault problem when using this local
geany: when I directly open a file, geany crashes immediately with a
segmentation fault message.
However, if I use Document > define filetype > NESTML on an empty page,
I am able to write a file and the new lexer seems to work like a charm.
Following this, opening an existing .nestml file becomes possible and
the lexer still works on this file. Yet, when I close geany, I again get
the segmentation fault.
At some point (not always)s messages also appeared, saying:
(geany:10608): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_unref: assertion
'G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed
The detailed of my implementation is on my fork of geany, on GitHub
I am working on an Ubuntu-based Linux Mint with Glib2 and Gtk2, and the
latest master for geany; the compilation was done using:
(make distclean &&) ./autogen.sh --disable-html-docs
--prefix=/home/me/.local && make && make install
and the output of autoconf is attached.
Could someone tell me where the problem comes from?
I first thought I forgot to tell geany something about the lexer, but
since the crash occurs for any filetype, I'm no longer sure this is the
An since my knowledge in C++ development is limited, I don't know how I
could build geany in debug mode to track the problem...
Any help appreciated!
There is no link in the body of the email, or any obvious way on the web
page. We are not using Geany for java, so there is no need to be part
of the list.

The Fedora plugins documentation page is a little outdated. The page
shows to use yum, not dnf and the repo doesn't have a package with the
name geany-plugins. I suppose the yum command is still mapped to dnf and
that would be better for CentOS users or something. I was hoping to
install them all with one shot but it looks like I will have to do them
individually for now. There seems to be two versions of
geany-plugins-lipsum that conflict as well so dnf install
geany-plugins-* doesn't work, either. I don't know if this is all
intentional but I found it a bit inconvenient. Most people using Geany
probably know how to work around this sort of stuff but it is what it is.
I know there's a way to toggle the case of the selection with Ctrl-Alt-U.
But I was wondering of this could be added -- to just make the first letter UPPERCASE, and all other letters lowercase (in the selection).
For example -- "This Is My Title".
When I try to build the latest geany (version 1.29) from source I get the
following configure error:
checking for GTK... no
configure: error: Package requirements (gtk+-2.0 >= 2.24 glib-2.0 >= 2.32
gio-2.0 >= 2.32 gmodule-no-export-2.0) were not met:
Requested 'glib-2.0 >= 2.32' but version of GLib is 2.28.8
Requested 'gio-2.0 >= 2.32' but version of GIO is 2.28.8
Is it possible to get past these constraints besides installing the latest
glib libraries? I'm currently using version 1.27 and I was able to build
from source flawlessly. I feel bad that I'm not using the bleeding edge
geany version anymore. Geany is my favorite text editor and I like to get
the new goodies from each new release!
Would it be possible to relax these constraints in future possibly?
If it matters my OS is RHEL 6.
Thanks for all your help
