alright, i'm all set (i'm brand new to linux, clearly, haha).  thank you very much!  and thanks to everyone who's worked on geany -- i've been using it for two days, and it is now my text editor of choice.

I think your apt sources are out of date, if it's saying that 0.13 is then newest... You can get all of the build dependencies using:

sudo apt-get build-dep geany

apt-get and synaptic think that 0.13 is the newest version.  i tried downloading and compiling 0.14, but running the configure program results in this error:

checking for GTK... configure: error: Package requirements (gtk+-2.0 >= 2.6.0) were not met:

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables GTK_CFLAGS
and GTK_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

i tried installing gtk2 via synaptic, and everything that ought to be installed is, according to synaptic.  i tried installing the lastest gtk2 from their site, but it says i have a whole bunch of dependencies (cairo, pango, and gtlib, i think), but synaptic says again that those are up to date (i suppose i might have to install them manually too).

anyway!  i think the easiest thing might be to just find some binaries that i can install.  anyone know of where some might be?

thank you!!

Geany 0.13 is fairly old and does not support that hidden pref. You can
get the most recent release version (0.14) on Hardy Heron using apt-get
or synaptic package manager.

Adding 'scroll_stop_at_last_line=true' to your ~/.geany/geany.conf and
restarting Geany is enough to get that config option working.
