Wish you luck on this.

May be someone else with a *NIX environment can confirm whether the instructions work for them.

If only I could get Dina to work in Textadept embarassed.

The following seemed to work under a *NIX:

0. Ensure Dina is installed.
1. Open ~/.textadept/init.lua
2. Add the following:

Formatted for Lua with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. ui.set_theme('dark', {font = 'Dina', fontsize = 13})

3. Save the file.
4. Start textadept.

Thanks 40hz for this and mention of the Sunflower file manager Thmbsup

Will have to consider what to do for replacing udevil...

231  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: DVCS ? (All about Git, Mercurial-Hg and the like...) on: May 09, 2014, 06:48:32 AM
Thanks for that.

On a side note, I haven't gone through that one, but I've found a number of Vogella's Android tutorials to be worth looking at.
232  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: The AVE on: May 08, 2014, 04:31:26 AM
I hadn't known that macros were available.

From phitsc's tutorial link, found a link to an article with a couple of examples:

1. Sequence number generation inside a file using Vim Macro
2. Repeat Vim Macro with different arguments
233  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: The AVE on: May 08, 2014, 04:25:09 AM
Thanks for that -- it's nice to have a series of concrete examples.  Below are their titles:

1. Substitute all occurrences of a text with another text in the whole file
2. Substitution of a text with another text within a single line
3. Substitution of a text with another text within a range of lines
4. Substitution of a text with another text by visual selection of lines
5. Substitution of a text with another text only the 1st X number of lines
6. Substitute only the whole word and not partial match
7. Substitute either word1 or word2 with a new word using regular expression
8. Interactive Find and Replace in Vim Editor
9. Substituting all lines with its line number.
10. Substituting special character with its equivalent value.
11. Alter sequence number in a numbered list while inserting a new item
12. Substituting the sentence beginnings with upper case. ( i.e title case the entire document ).

Thanks for that.

Haven't had much luck building it yet -- also the sf site doesn't suggest a whole lot of activity.

The source code aspect is for multiple reasons including but not limited to:

Motivation to not hide / do user-unwanted things (no guarantee ofc)
Might be easier to fix if something is broken
Ability to study and modify
237  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Android: Note-taking App with Encryption, Source Code, ... ? on: May 06, 2014, 09:42:35 PM
Looking for a note-taking Android app with encryption, source code, local backup / restore, and being actively maintained.

Candidates so far (not necessarily fulfilling all criteria):

NoteCipher
OI Safe
miniNoteViewer

May be KeePassDroid can be shoe-horned for the purpose via its comment field...though perhaps that's not so great.

Any favorites / recommendations?



Additional things that have turned up:

Secret Space Encryptor
cryptonite
AES Crypt - source for the Android version doesn't appear to be available
Universal Password Manager
TravelCrypt

Root needed:

LUKSManager
238  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: No .NET Framework, no problem! on: May 06, 2014, 09:28:34 PM
This sounds promising!



Didn't know Mono had a similar capability!  Nice Thmbsup

Is it what's hinted at here?

Quote
Mono and applications that embed Mono can be deployed without an installer (you can "xcopy" deploy your application and the required Mono files without installing the .NET runtime).

242  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: The AVE on: May 04, 2014, 07:35:11 PM
Mostly *NIX -- on Windows for quick edits I've tended to use Notepad.exe smiley

And yes...I forgot about the slow connection part.

He he -- some things seem better these days!
243  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: The AVE on: May 04, 2014, 06:18:01 AM
Below are some scenarios I recall using vi / vim under:

  • Quick startup time handy for quick / small edits
  • Functions ok over slow connections
  • No other options in certain limited environments (e.g. while installing or restricted scenarios)

Knowing some of the key sequences has turned out to be handy in other contexts -- ofc, learning Emacs-ish key bindings also turned out to be useful too smiley
244  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: The AVE on: May 03, 2014, 06:39:52 PM
Haven't looked at in detail, but came across following:

245  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: The AVE on: May 03, 2014, 06:25:29 PM
By using the dwb browser, I seem to be learning some additional key sequences as well as having others reinforced.  For example, 'gg' for moving the cursor to the top of the buffer (didn't remember this one) and 'G' for moving the cursor to the bottom of the buffer.

In IntelliJ IDEA (and perhaps other environments) I think there are plugins to help one learn key sequences -- may be there are some for vim too.

FWIW, I came across the following when looking for a way to describe what 'gg' does:

One such plugin for IDEA is the Key Promoter plugin -- some description via following:

246  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Yad - Yet Another Dialog on: May 03, 2014, 06:17:39 PM
Ah, yes, I was about to point that out, "[" is an alias for the "test" command that requires a closing "]" and so requires a space between it and it's argument.

Those sneaky *NIX wizards!
247  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: An interesting look at what 'Big Data' means to privacy on: May 03, 2014, 04:40:57 PM
So where's the movement against these kind of things? Wink
248  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Yad - Yet Another Dialog on: May 03, 2014, 04:20:56 PM
Thanks -- that runs but I get the following error as well after specifying something to run and clicking the 'OK' button:

Quote
run-dialog.sh: line 15: [-z: command not found

For values to execute, I tried 'virtualbox' as well as 'palemoon' with similar results.  To be clearer, both programs start up -- I also see error the 'command not found' result output quoted above.



FWIW, changing line 15 so that there's a space between the first character '[' and the second character '-' seemed to silence the error output.
249  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Pale Moon 4 Linux on: May 03, 2014, 05:50:58 AM
I haven't had much success setting it up to "Always use private browsing mode" -- at least it doesn't look like it's working.

Steps I followed:

-Bring up preferences
-Select the Privacy section
-Select the drop down next to "Pale Moon will" and choose "Use custom settings for history"
-Ensure the checkbox below "Always use private browsing mode" is checked
-Click on the "Close" button at the bottom right of the dialog

After I restart and view the preferences again, I don't get the sense that the previous settings stuck.

Any one else tried this?

FWIW, it looks like I'm using Pale Moon 24.5.0.



My impression about it not working is likely off -- I think I misunderstood what I was seeing embarassed
250  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Yad - Yet Another Dialog on: May 03, 2014, 05:15:32 AM
Thanks for the warning -- the second example didn't work out of the box for me.



I liked the following examples from the man page:

Quote
Display a progress dialog while searching for all the postscript files in your home directory

  find $HOME -name '*.ps' | yad --progress --pulsate

Quote
Display a box with all of the installed desktop applications

  yad --icons --read-dir=/usr/share/applications
