64-bit utilities (includes mc2-64 bit)

Posted 05-03-2015 at 07:00 PM by rainbowsally
Updated 05-04-2015 at 03:35 PM by rainbowsally (Uninstaller fixed and uploaded, mc2 build bugs fixed)

We'd better tool up. The old mc2 was for 32-bits. There are a few bugs in it but it should work for those needing 32 bit compilation on a 64 bit machine.

[Note: May 4, Found installer bugs in the mc2 src d/load. Path to panic version of mc2 was added so the stuff could update before being installed and pkg-config string replaces individual includes and libs now. Sorry about that. Should work now.]

But today's amazing journey into Mad Computer Science is...

An Alternate Glade Build.

An Alternate Glade Build. Yes, this actually pertains to the parser, but nevermind that for now.

Need to build glade with -g3 flags? The Computer Mad Science Team does, and so today's marvelous adventure starts here. [Only needs 'make' and the original glade sources d/load to do it.]

  • An alternate build system generated with Computer Mad Science tools.

Our attempt to use the standard ./configure-make sources to get glade to compile with debug flags...

GTK Resource Compilation Utility

Posted 04-09-2015 at 03:30 PM by rainbowsally

GTK Resource Compilation.

There's a utility called 'glib-compile-resources' that takes an xml file that is basically a list of resources such as glade ui files, and it outputs c code to embed the data in the application. It's messy to use, but it works.

There may be another messy gtk/glib utility to create these xml files that 'glib-compile-resources' can use, but if there is here's another one that may or may not be easier to use.

New-Make ready for hyperjump and KDE Menu's How-To

This is somewhat advanced stuff but.. maybe not. It might also appeal to anyone who has a little talent for tinkering who needs to set up a KDE menu for an application that doesn't have one. See warning below, however.

Today's features
  • Last of the first generation new-make installer/uninstallers (probably).
  • Usage example that installs and uninstalls a dummy application and icons into the KDE menus.

Tooling Up. ui-tool (QT4 ui file utilites)

Posted 12-15-2012 at 11:16 AM by rainbowsally
Updated 06-10-2013 at 05:17 PM by rainbowsally (bullet list not showing correctly + typo fix + parag alignment)

UPDATE: (2013-06-10) There's a stand-alone version of the uitool here.

It's part of the next libLQ-qt/mc2 project but that lib is not ready to fly yet.

Note: This is now part of the libLQ-qt download, but it's been renamed lq-uitool. It builds in the tools folder and should install automatically if all goes well.
