Mousepad in general
> view > color scheme = not working
@donald As for mousepad you can try 2 options:

Code: Select all

# ln -sf /usr/share/gtksourceview-3.0 /usr/share/gtksourceview-2.0
or (should you prefer to solve the user scope):

Code: Select all

 $ mkdir -p ~/.local/share/gtksourceview-3.0/styles
and put yours styles there. Also create a link to that folder, and name it gtksourceview-2.0 to ensure backwards compatibility.

Many of the visual regressions we face 5/6 years later, still come from the Gnome 3 Black Death. :unknown:

Cheers!

(Working in scrollbars and metacity integration. So far so good. I hope to get it done this weekend) :)

Hi M.Eerie
Thank you for that suggestion.
Unfortunately it didn't work.....unless I did something wrong.

my observations
shipped mousepad binary > color scheme = no
shipped mousepad binary + gtksourceview-2.10.5-x86_64-1 > color scheme = no
copied mousepad binary (3.2.2) + gtksourceview-2.10.5 > color scheme = YES

I think I'll do it then this way.

Hi Donald

It is working for me, but not without changing theme before I achieved. In Mate there is no problem with Pluma.

Cheers!

Correction -->

Code: Select all

$ cd ~/.local/share/gtksourceview3.0; ln -s . ../gtksourceview2.0


(I've misstyped before)

Hi M.Eerie
You are using APorteus which might have a different set of packages,do you?

I'm sorry but it does not work with 4.0-xfce-64Bit

I can link the folders with a slightly modified line:
cd ~/.local/share/gtksourceview-3.0/; ln -s . ../gtksourceview2.0 (or gtksourceview-2.0)
but the result is always the same.
The mousepad binary shipped with 4.0 doesn't display the color schemes correctly.

If i install gtksourceview-2.10.5 and use the mousepad binary from 3.2.2
(which is slightly bigger in size) it works.

No, I'm not. The screenshot came from Porteus 4 with XFCE module. Have you tried to change the theme?

Your Mousepad is getting the installed styles, but the theme is not.

Look at the screenshot again. I'm using Qogir

(In Porteus Info, the package list, shows Mousepad 0.40 and GtkSourceview 3.18)


Cheers!

--> Have you tried to change the theme? <--...Yep

Image
The color of the text box background in mousepad still does not change
according to the selected color scheme (cobalt)

The text field background should look like this
(color scheme = cobalt)
Image
( just to show what the cobalt color scheme normally
select as background color.)

:unknown:

All I can say it is working for me, but for some reason (the regression ;) ) you have to change the theme in order to GtkSourceView take effect.

I've uploaded some logs to pastebin, should you have the time to diff'em.

LOADED MODULES
LOADED PACKAGES
BOOT DISK & cmdline
BOOT INFO

Just trying to catch the bug with someone who knows... Certainly, I've observed some strange behaviours in XFCE. And it's a shame. I have Manjaro XFCE in my production machine, but after all these years, there are some strange behaviors coming to life from time to time (some of them not even solved):
  • Close session, re-starts it twice
  • 1px resize
  • Duplicated service daemons at session startup
etc..

It's like trying to get the Millenium Falcon into shape again and again. And it's getting bored. So, given the fact of MATE/Budgie evolution, and the waste of resources, I'm leaving the XFCE bandwagon unless all those irritating bugs got sorted out soon.

As you stated before,

I'm just a user and not a developer,
so I don't care about the size of the module.
What is the point of stripping down a module to the bone
if you have to add MB's of stuff afterwards to make it work
like it did before?
and I feel like that. With today's hardware, (even 10 years old machines) there is no need to whip yourself with the lack of options/tools. Don't get me wrong, Porteus modularity is a must. A big must. Has proved to be helpfull in most case scenarios. And I think the team effort to bring 7 desktops to life, is enormous. We are users, right, but in the end, the developer is a user too...

On the other hand, Linux is already mature, but unfortunately there are too many brilliant solutions scattered, and no one bringing all togheter. We are trapped in the middle of the Minimalism vs BeProductive guerrilla.

(BTW, everyone here knows who's the teacher and who's the apprentice) :roll:

Thanks for being with me trying to find out what's going on.
It was an interesting task/weekend,wasn't it?

I'm still unsure why it doesn't work as expected..lol
May be that the new version has been stripped down a bit too much,
but because a solution has been found i mark this point as being solved.
(at least for me)

My suggestion: post these bugs (and how exactly we can reproduce them) inside Porteus 4 bug topic. I'll try to log them separating the most critical ones from the cosmetics ones. :good:

Or a separate topic for each 4.0 DE needing tweaking.

@Ed_P, the idea is good, but most users don't know how to differentiate a DE issue from a generic Porteus issue.

Porteus-v4.0 bug reports

Post#87 by raja » 11 Jun 2018, 10:36

USM in both 32 and 64 bit v4.0, ends up showing LIBS.txt error, visit me after 6 hours. Enough has been talked about this error and repeats in the new version.

HD Videos play well in v4.0rc1(mpv), but crawls in v4.0. USM error showed off, while building vlc.

Activated vlc3.0.2 for KDE by jss, along with his qt base module. VLC plays Full HD videos smooth and without any lag.

I continue to use , v3.2.2 - 32biit and v4.0rc1 - 64 bit or the latest nemisis(neko) or the rock stable ubuntu deepin derivative.

No one will like to get his system messed up again and again,. especially with "folder locks", while using mate or cinnamon.
Linux Kernel-4.4.120-32 bit; Linux kernel-4.15.7-64 bit.

And the solution is the same one used to fix it in 3.2.2: Firefox Quantum (Post by Ed_P #62912)

True, but most users don't know how to do this either.

Having a single topic with multiple unrelated problems makes it hard to follow what's what. imo
