QT4 dialog & using MC2 EXT_ALL target examples

Posted 12-11-2012 at 12:45 AM by rainbowsally

The sources are in the qt4 demos and you can use the pro file if you like, but here's example of how to use the EXT_ALL target in an mc2.def.

This also applies to makefiles in general, but it's much easier to work through an intermediate system such as mc2.

It is also a great demo for using dialogs, and you can choose native or QT built-in styles for them, which makes a big difference for the file and color selection dialogs.

I particularly like the file

A stand-alone TextDisplay widget in QT

Skip this part if you know about mc2 (makefile creator, the second generation)

--------------------
Before we start, if you haven't tried mc2 yet, don't be put off by the installation location. The Computer Mad Science Team uses 4 levels of installation for various kinds of apps.

The most basic type is the HOME/bin sandbox. This allows instantly running applications because that folder is usually in the...

Nedit copy/paste failure

Posted 12-09-2012 at 05:55 PM by flshope

At the risk of revealing myself to be a computer muggle, I will start by saying that I do most of my code writing/editing using NEdit. I have been using NEdit for most of a decade. I know I should learn Emacs, but I just haven't gotten around to that. I like NEdit a lot, except for one fairly serious problem ...

Seemingly at random, when I have multiple instances of NEdit running simultaneously, the copy/paste function suddenly stops working on all instances. Closing all NEdit sessions...

applies to: linux, KMail, Opera, Balsa, Claws

Recently I got sick of new KMail. I tried to be patient and after upgrading to new KDE4 (together with Kubuntu 12.04, which is "Long Term Support", so it was ment to be "stable") I ran trough all pains with migrating my e-mails and configuring it together with Akonadi, Nepomuk, and Virtuoso. I hoped to get the whole KDE-PIM usable again. Now, after half a year, I gave up and searched for replacement.

Email disaster with Opera

Posted 12-08-2012 at 08:11 PM by flshope

I do my email using Opera. Opera is fast as a browser and it's convenient to open web links from emails in the same application.

A few days ago, I had an email disaster. I had just switched from internet work to email only to find, much to my horror, that all my current and previously stored emails had disappeared.
