Posted by roberts on Aug. 30 2006,20:13Better late than at all. Sorry for the delay...
But with two RCs and ibiblio being down,
this has been a very busy month for me.
Anyway... I have posted the following new extensions.
Thanks goes to those who take the time to share these with the community.
As usual please read the info files for requirements before you attempt to run these.

Posted by mikshaw on Sep. 01 2006,12:40You may want to look closely at the Xnview license. It's apparently not displayed on the web site, but it looks to me like it might not be a redistributable program.
Posted by WDef on Sep. 01 2006,18:53I wondered the same thing Mik.
Which is why I got the author's permission to distribute xnview as a uci for dsl before posting:

Thanks, all the same.
Posted by WDef on Sep. 01 2006,19:24Ahhhh ... I've noticed 'find' isn't working in scite.uci.
There's a fix. Add the following to /home/dsl/.SciTEUser.properties
It turns out this also fixes the 'open highlighted file' feature without fiddling with the encoding menu.
Character sets other than english will need other settings here, don't ask me what.
I'll rebuild to include this in the default user properties file and repost at some stage.

Posted by WDef on Sep. 05 2006,23:27The plot thickens with Scite.uci.
While it seems that setting
does fix 'find', it also disables copy & pasting into a shell with the mouse button.
Now - I've found setting
I've looked at the scite mail list, and there have been a lot of similar problems with pasting etc reported since 2003, on gtk1. Also, copy and pasting between scite and certain apps (I remember scite and dillo copy and pasting issues ...).
The developer doesn't seem to have any problems - he is using gnome and gtk2.
I may try an earlier version, will lose some features.
Posted by WDef on Sep. 14 2006,18:48Now fixed - kindly ignore the above.
The problem was one of paths. Rebuilt with prefix=/opt/scite/usr, made =/opt/scite/usr/bin in advance, and aok.
Nothing gives any indication that scite wanted to run from there and not from /opt/scite/bin
Sending rebuild now.
