Hi Enrico -

 My mistake - sorry...

I'm using FreeBSD 7.0.  I originally installed Geany using its package 
system ( pkg_add -r geany). 
That was quite an old version (0.10.2, iirc ).

I didn't uninstall that (as I should have) before grabbing the Geany 
0.14 source and compiling it (no "custom" settings used)
so I'd say that there's "interference" between the two versions. 
Apologies for that...

I'll do an uninstall of the old version and will go from there.  I'm 
sure that once I add the missing Haskell file, all will be well... ;)
Anyway, I'd say the original problem is solved ( the missing 
"filetypes.haskell" ).  Hopefully adding that will activate those two 
(Compile and Execute).

Thanks again - bye for now -
 - Andy
