Can't open file in nedit


When I try to open a file in nedit, I did choose the file I want to open, and when I press OK button, it pop up a message: Please choose a file to open.
And when I choose the open menu, there is a open file windows pop up, I shoulb be able to browse my files in this windows, like I click ".." on the left directory tree, it should give me the upper level of the current directory. However, it doesn't work, after I click it, it remains the current directory.

very strange.

Any idea?

Thanks a lot.

That does sound strange. Not sure why the ok button wouldn't work. As far as navigating to the parent directory, it requires a double click and I've had problems with that. Adding
nedit.multiClickTime: 500
to ~/.Xresources or ~/.Xdefaults (or a lower value) may help. It may even help with a single click registering. Also, depending on your version of nedit and your version of lesstif (if you compiled) it can be kinda buggy.
There's also
nedit.stdOpenDialog: False
which you can toggle back and forth in ~/.Xdefaults. That may clear it up in one version or the other.

Does issuing the command 'nedit file' open the file okay? That'd at least narrow it down to a GUI/widget issue. Or choosing the file and hitting enter or double-clicking on it rather than using the okay button.

I can open a file by typing:
nedit "filename"

If I run nedit in console, and try to use the open menu, I have these error messages in the console:

I've never experienced that one. So you are using an nedit compiled from source? Or a package that has been compiled with lesstif? (The Help>Version box will say.) You might try upgrading - or possibly downgrading to a known-working version - lesstif and/or nedit, or getting the precompiled nedit. Apparently, lesstif has issues with XmTextField (among other things). Are you using a special character set or font? Either way, it sounds like something's wrong beyond a simple config issue. Could be wrong but that's my best guess.

I use the precompiled version which is 5.4.
I don't know where I can find the down grade version tho.
It's very strange, I remember that I used nedit before, can't remember which version.

Hm. I'm using the precompiled 5.4rc2. I downloaded the 5.4 final recently and compiled it - it 'worked' but spit out different error messages and I haven't felt like trying to figure it out. Nedit's weird - I keep bouncing back and forth between source and binary. Usually one of them works properly and the other doesn't on any given release. The compile of 5.3, or whatever it was, was fine.

Cool. Dunno why it flakes out from version to version. Glad you found one that works.
