  • I am editing a text file and would like to draw some lines. I see that there is no help available for the tool. When I start using the tool, I get into a *draw* mode, but I cannot get out of it. When I do C-g, it quits that mode, but takes the entire drawing away from the screen. Also, I'd like to know if there is a way to move the cursor to a different position without actually...

  • Never mind. In XFontSel, one must remember to select iso8859 in the "registry" field for these fonts. If left to '*', it causes problems. After all this trouble, I finally concluded that misc-fixed at 14 points on a 1280x1024 was more legible than the proggy font (or atleast thats what I prefer). The Crisp font was good as well, but a little too big to display all 80 columns when...

  • Okay...so I finally confirmed that Linux cannot handle TTF fonts from the proggy site (Yes, I know its Xorg---not Linux---that cannot handle them). I basically modified the .spec file from msttcorefonts and built myself an RPM using the EXACT same procedure as the msttcorefonts people d---they call chkfontpath and fc-cache at appropriate times. The resulting RPM installs and...

  • I am using Jasspa on Fedora Core 3 and GNOME 2.8. I have downloaded some true-type programming font from http://www.proggyfonts.com/. As everyone suggests, to install new fonts, you have to copy them to ~/.fonts. I did this. To use a font in jasspa, I really do not know any better way to use the XFontSel utility and then "cut'n paste" the resulting font into jasspa's font dialog...

  • drag and drop works from Nautilus, but not in the following case (Using GNOME 2.6 on Fedora Core 2): 1) Select the "Search for File or Folders" utility from the "Start" menu (shall I call it the Hat menu? Foot menu? whatever!) 2) Look for some file that you know exists---in my case it was a .h file. 3) When the results are found, in the Search Results: area, drag'n drop it to the...

  • The feature of clicking an error message and jumping quickly to the error in source files does not work under certain circumstances. I am using a tool named makepp (I don't like make). In a multi-directory project at the top level, I typed 'makepp'. makepp, just like 'make' displays message like "Entering directory '/home/....'". When a compilation error occurs, the path output by...

  • Currently I can only use the mouse button to go to a match in the *grep* buffer. I would like to be able to do this with the keyboard. This feature, upon my request, was implemented in the *compile* buffer, but somehow it got overlooked in the *grep* buffer. Salman __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!? Yahoo!

  • There are cases, where one would want auto-indentation in text-files. In some editors, all auto-indentation means that the indentation of the next line will be the same as the current one. I have a file with an extenstion .pro. a part of it looks like: SOURCES += CommQt.cpp \ Connection.cpp \ ConnectionConfig.cpp \ ConnectionForm.cpp If I place my cursor on the 2nd Line and hit...
