Fedora Core 26
Scientific Linux 7.3
I dearly adore Geany as I can use it over an SSH X11 connection.
Butttttttttt, it does not support the Primary Clipboard (mouse
over and center click). It only supports the Secondary
Clipboard (<ctrl>c< <ctrl><c>) -- a Windows thing.
This is a real pain in the neck (not my exact word). It
is annoying as *** ALL *** my other Linux programs support it
and it is a muscle memory.
Is there any work around or plans to fully support the
clipboards in Linux, not just the reduced function
clipboards that Windows supports?

Hi there everyone. I don't usually use mailing lists, so forgive me if I
do something wrong. I noticed on Geany installations on my desktop and
my laptop that Geny uses significant CPU resources both in terms of CPU
usage, which is around 20-30%, and in terms of CPU clock speed, which is
closer to max CPU frequency state than it is to the CPUs low clock states.
I noticed this on my laptop because I started noticing fan working a lot
more than it should. Then I installed HWMonitor and set CPU monitoring
only to find out that CPU frequency is set to max 2.4Ghz, when having a
Geany windows in focus and especially when typing text, instead of the
lowest CPU clock state of 1.2Ghz. This means that CPU temps go up and
fan has to turn on.
On my desktop it's the same story. CPU is at 3.3Ghz, max frequency, more
often than not, while for example editing text in Notepad++ the
frequency hovers around 0.8Ghz or in other words, CPUs low frequency state.
Desktop specs are: Pentium G4400, 8GB RAM, AMD RX 470
Laptop specs are: Core i3-3110, 8GB RAM, Nvidia 710m
I use geany with Spellchecker and Save actions plugins active, although
I tried disabling all plugins, but it didn't help. Also I use geany
1.31, latest available.
I also tested Geany on another computer running Linux Mint and it
doesn't seem to be so CPU hungry.
Is there something I can do to make my Windows experience of Geany less
taxing on the CPU?

"Have you tried running the script from a regular terminal (or even Geany's
builtin terminal in the message window)?"
Perhaps I made this overly complicated.
My scripts work perfectly. I have fifteen of them for different current
working library sets.
My scripts are not a problem. Those consoles/terminals work no problem. No
blocking. Only when starting a console from geany.
I do not use F5 key.
When starting a new instance of geany, this is the command line:
geany -i --config=/rdkl/.config/geany
I work from multiple systems; this helps keep them all the same.
Not perfect, but better.
Version is 1.27
"Because the output of build commands is parsed and displayed in the
compiler output tab only one build command can be running at a time or
their output will get mixed up and confused."
per geany instance only, right?
"So the build menu is blocked whilst a command is running. So as I
said before, the command needs to start your terminal as a detached
process and exit immediately to get the menu back. Did you try using
&? On *x commands are run in sh so it should work."
re: & Yes, did that - no defference.
I have unchecked 'Load virtual terminal support'
I have unchecked 'msgwin_compiler_visible'
I have unchecked 'msgwin_scribble_visible'
Starting fresh this am:
Single instance of geany:
I re-enabled 'msgwin_compiler_visible'
restarted - verified 'msgwin_compiler_visible' enabled
Looked at the debug messages screen - no sign of a problem.
Project build section looks like:
NF_03_CM=lxterminal --geometry=130x30& --working-directory=%d
My geany .config build section looks like:
NF_03_CM=lxterminal --geometry=130x30& --working-directory=%d&
Loaded one project.
click 'console' button in build drop down
compiler message window:
lxterminal --geometry=130x30& --working-directory=/rdkl/FB_common/defines
(in directory: /rdkl/FB_common/defines)
/bin/sh: 1: --working-directory=/rdkl/FB_common/defines: not found
/usr/share/themes/Lubuntu-dark-panel/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:682: Unable to find
include file: "apps/xfce4-notifyd.rc"
However, the terminal did start in the correct directory.
Leave this up, change desktop, open a second geany instance, load a
profile, start a console
compiler message window:
--working-directory=/rdkl/FB_generic/rlib_small& (in directory:
/bin/sh: 1: --working-directory=/rdkl/FB_generic/rlib_small: not found
Compilation finished successfully.
console opened correctly
no status indicator, no build menu block
First instance of geany still up, console running, build menu blocked
drop console in that first instance, the status indicator stays, build menu
Drop geany - reopen. (second geany instance still open)
drop console on second geany instance
Whichever geany I open a console on, it will block - the other will open
I can drop and alternate which geany has the block.
Any subsequent geany instance will NOT have the build menu block as long as
one is blocked.

I am running geany in both Ubuntu 17.04 (host) and Lubuntu (VirtualBox
guest) 17.04 . My build settings are the same on both:
compile : g++ -g -Wall -std=c++14 -c -lboost_thread
-DBOOST_THREAD_VERSION=4 -pthread "%f"
link: g++ -g -Wall -std=c++14 -o "%e" "%f"
/home/bluefrog/SQLAPI/lib/libsqlapi.a -lpthread -pthread -lboost_thread
-DBOOST_THREAD_VERSION=4 -lboost_system -ldl -lpq
make Object: make %e.o
LD_LIBRARY_PATH is defined the same on both.
When I execute (F5), having successfully compiled and linked, nothing
appears in the terminal on Lubuntu in the VirtualBox, but when the same is
executed in Ubuntu (host), all appears as expected. Could somebody suggest
what it may be?
Started recently (during last 12 months, perhaps.)
At times, a side-scrolling status indicator pops up on status bar.
When this is present, all commands in build menu are greyed out.
**I can find no description of this status indicator.**
The only way to clear it is to close geany.
Closing the file or the project doesn't clear it.
Closing all other instances of geany does not clear it.
The files are on a networked drive. I have persistent connections. I have
I am able to edit, and save a file while in this condition.
This only happens occasionally, but means I must close down in the middle
when I may have multiple files setup to make a set of changes.
This is true for several machines I use.

If you don't try - you lose - automatically.
I notice in Geany 1.27 (Mint 18.1 repo) it doesn't save search terms.
Which is fine, especially between sessions.
In Geany, I take it there's also no "clear recent documents?" (you can
set the # of listed recent docs in the config file).
I don't know if it's designed never to save search or "find & replace"
history, or if I edited some file and don't remember it.
There definitely aren't any menu or prefs for "don't save search
history" - or such.
There are no settings in any Geany files to control any of this, that I
see. It's OK - I'm just surprised. Most apps save some history and you
have to find a way to delete it, if need to.
If I edited something in Geany's files to not save search history and
forgot what I did, I'd like to see if there's a way to apply it to
Mint's text editor.
In Linux Mint, the default text editor is XED. I could easily change it
to another editor - even Geany, that doesn't save search history or can
XED has no preferences to not save history; no way to clear it.
XED's Search & "replace with" terms are stored in a binary file -
"user." The only way to delete those entries is using the tool,
dconf-editor, which isn't that convenient on a regular basis.
is there anyone successfully using the Numbered Bookmarks plugin?
I installed it but when I hit "Ctrl + Shift + a Number" then nothing
According to the plugin's description a bookmark should be created and a
marker should appear at the current text line.
Am I doing something wrong?
Thanks for any help in advance.
Are there any plugins that provide basic error reporting (line #, space,
specific or general error) for CSS?
Similar to what the Firefox addon Stylish provides?
It looks like phoning home has already come to the Chrome version of
Stylish, so I'm exploring options for an editor besides the one in
Stylish (and I need a LOT of error correction). :)
does someone know how to configure a syntax highlighting for llvm IR files?
