animated gif on Linux

I'm looking at the doc trying to use an animated gif for a busy indicator. This is usually simple. Couldn't figure out why not working on CopperSpice. qDebug() << "supported formats: " << QMovie::supportedFormats(); Ubuntu 20.04 LTS Choosing xcb gl-integration based on following priority (xcb_glx, x...

Valgrind Warnings

Just some things I stumbled on while running valgrind on a fork of Diamond. These appear to be leaks inside of CopperSpice in various places. These aren't all from the same valgrind run. They could be some normal valgrind confusion. It appears QTextDocumentLayout has a small memory leak ==59076== 4 ...

QFileDialogAppearance on Linux

all, I tested this out on Fedora (current) and Ubuntu 20.04. This is what QFileDailog looks like. https://www.logikalsolutions.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/file-dialog-1.png According to the doc it should be providing the "system file dialog" (or wording something like that). On Ubuntu t...

Debian

I want to preface this by stating this is not the code in the official Diamond repository . I have been working on some enhancements/new features and am simply offering this up to get a bit of feedback. If you wish to see what I've been working on you can read about it here: https://www.logikalsolut...

Re: Linux library naming convention

Bye-the-bye, this is also how update-alternatives works in large part. Nice write-up on that here:

Linux library naming convention

I stumbled onto this creating the Diamond Debian and wanted to bring it up for consideration. Hunspell has the exact same problem so CopperSpice shouldn't feel alone. roland@roland-U18CS-VirtualBox:~/Projects/diamond_debian_release$ ldd diamond linux-vdso.so.1 (0x00007fffb3329000) libCsGui1.7.so => ...

Re: QML

No QML is one of the reasons I'm seriously looking at CopperSpice for several clients. Putting it bluntly, QML is a hand polished turd. Besides the massive security issues, you have not saddled a battery powered device with a native compiled event system, QML "engine" and JavaScript "engine." Highly...

Documentation issue

Don't really know where to put this so putting here. Might be fixed. I have version 1.5.3 of documentation as 1.7 was not yet available for download. https://www.logikalsolutions.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/plaintextinsert.png The example code is calling insertText() not insertPlainText...
