QPaddy
Text Editors
Score 62%
Description:

QPaddy is a simple text editor for X, using QT libraries.

I've written QPaddy because I wanted an editor which is:
- simple,
- with basic function,
- with poor software request (X and qt libraries),
- simple for newbies,
- with the capabilities of showing external command output.

This isn't a complete editor and it is very young. I hope you can enjoy it.

Now I changed to new computer with new Mandriva with new development environment.
After entering 'make' the following errors say that I use too new versions of QT. The compiling fails.

uic: File generated with too old version of Qt Designer (3.3)
File 'searchdlg.ui' is not valid

I have Qt Designer 4.5.0. And the old version is not in the package list so it cannot be installed.

So it is not compatible with your older version.

Hello.
I've installed a fresh Mandriva 2009.1 on VirtualBox.
Then, from Mandriva repository, I've downloaded:
+ libqt3-devel (with all its dependences: it's about 125MB)
+ make
+ gcc-g++ (other 10MB)

I've downloaded qpaddy from qt-apps :-P and then:
tar jxvf 62284-qpaddy-0.89.0.tar.bz2

cd qpaddy-0.89.0/

qmake qpaddy.pro

QTDIR=/usr/lib/qt3
export QTDIR

make

And I have a qpaddy running.

I'm sure that it's not the best practice to use export for modify QTDIR, but I'm not familiar with Mandriva. Perhaps you should use alternatives (man update-alternatives)
For example, as root, try:
# update-alternatives --display qmake
# alternatives --display uic

Hi,
I just wanted to make install the latest. Sorry to me, bacause I have no qmake.
What time will it be ported to Mandriva?
By the way. I translate it to Hungarian language with UTF-8 decoded file.
Check it here:
http://brtkr.extra.hu/offsite/qpaddy_hu.ts
I hope and trust my translation will be in the next release of QPaddy.

Sorry for UTF-8.

Hi,
I'm sorry, but I've seen your comment only today, after the 0.88.6 version.

To install QPaddy by source you need qmake and other utilities such as uic and moc, which are probably included in one package (qt3-dev-tools for ubuntu). The rpm package for Mandriva was made by a Polish guy, but I was not able to contact him for the last versions. So I think that the only way to install last version of QPaddy is to use the source.

I'm happy to see your translation for QPaddy and I'll use for the next version. If you want I can send you a pre-realese so that you can translate it.

For more info for installation or translation you can email to: ebmail @ yahoo.it

I hope to hear from you soon.

The only difference between QPaddy 0.87.0 and 0.87.0b is the file format:
qpaddy.0.87.0.tar.bz2 was, in fact, a gzipped file;
qpaddy.0.87.0b.tar.bz2 is a really bzip2 file.

Sorry. I am sure this was not a big issue for you.

Have you got some other problems compiling and using QPaddy?
Have you got some notes on QPaddy?
Any comment is greatly appreciated, thanks.
