I have not been able to find the markdown plugin for Geany for CentOS 7 on EPEL despite a number of other plugins being available. I filed a bug report some time ago so it may eventually be resolved.
In the meantime, has anyone found it in a repository or should I compile all plugins from the Geany website?
I have been using Geany as my editor for years, and I'm used to the theme.
Recently I upgraded Geany to the latest version, and found that it has been
using GTK-3 theme. I hate GTK-3 theme and want Geany to use GTK-2 theme.
How may I make it?
Archlinux with glibc 2.26-11 gtk2 2.24.32-1 gtk3 3.22.28-1
(Also, I don't mind making all my apps using GTK-2 theme.)
I customized my geany message window compiler tab via ~/.config/geany.css
on a fedora 27 system:
It's working well unless I *select* a line of a compiler error or a
compiler context. Then line color switches to the color I set for treeview
nodes in general in the first rule.
Any ideas how to fix this?
Many thanks in advance,
Some time ago I asked about a lexer for gtkrc files (for gtk-2 apps). I
believe the answer was that there wasn't one.
Maybe it changed since then?
I saw on https://foicica.com/scintillua/LexerList.html that it lists
gtkrc files as already supported - same as CSS.
Unless a later Geany version than mine now includes gtkrc in the file
types lists, it's not listed.
Is there a reason the Scintillua gtkrc lexer won't / doesn't work with
If it will work & can catch some errors, it'd help a lot.
Would it be possible for me to "drop in" (as they mention) a recent
Scintilla version into the latest stable Geany?
How exactly would that work? Would it be added like a plugin into Geany?
They note that PGP signatures are also available for Scintillua.
$ rpm -qa geany
I have Preferences --> Editor --> Indentation
Type = spaces
I HATE TABS!!!!
How do I get this thing to stop converting my
spaces into freakin' tabs ????
I am almost embarrassed to ask this question to the forum but I just
installed Linux Deepin 15.5 on my desktop PC and after installing geany it
appears that when I open a new document I can type all the letters and
numbers and special characters etc but when it comes to pressing on the
space bar there is no movement forward of the cursor at all?
This way one cannot type any code at all containing spaces!!!???
Anybody else had similar experience on Deeping 15.5?
Thank you very much for any assistance.
Thank you all. I must have been so engrossed in working that I didn’t realize the very bottom of the geany window was just below the edge of my desktop and was obscured.
Thank you all again.

I've just scoured the preferences, plugins and docs and cannot seem to
I have some very long lines to edit and I need to know what columnar
position I'm in.
Is there a way to display the column position on the status bar or anywhere?
I am attempting to use Geany IDE to help develop my perl projects (I
have several that I am working on currently)
I *used* to use Intellij IDEA (With perl plugins) to develop, check,
debug and run my perl code but I then had to rebuild my Windows 10
machine due to several factors all coming together at the same time, and
in the process I lost the functionality of IDEA to do my development.
I therefore did an internet search for PERL IDEs and Geany was one of
them but I am struggling to set up some of the basics here.
Each of my current projects has a "bunch" of perl modules that I have
written so in directory "X" I may have files X1.pm, X2,pl, X3.pm, etc
My question is: how can I add these relevant files to a Geany project so
that they are all built into an executable unit that executes? - it
doesn't have to be portable as all the relevant data files that I need
are on my laptop and the output is the important thing with each project
and each project *does* work (or at least used to under IDEA) but I seem
to have missed or not read the basic functionality of Geany as to how to
associte each file with a project and to develop the prgram to run to
Any help would be most appreciated
