(osx|windows|linux) Color Scheme Editor (BETA)

@quodlibet, thanks for the feedback, I am happy to hear it seems to work on 32 or 64 bit. I don't currently do an architecture check, so the plugin should run fine on either. I wonder if building for 12.04, would work on 12.10...From what I understand, there is usually the thinking that building with the oldest linux you can can sometimes be better if the shared libraries are backwards compatible. I am pretty sure there was a significant jump from 11.X to 12.10, was there big differences in core stuff when Ubuntu jumped from 12.04 to 12.10? I am not completely sure if/when they dropped gnome2. Is 12.10 using gnome3? I might have a 12.04 VM image...maybe I will build wxpython 2.9 on 12.04 and see how the editor built on 12.04 performs on 12.10.

If you are interested, I can give you the steps to get your system ready and build it on 12.04? Once the dependencies are in place, building the the Color Scheme Editor is pretty easy.

12.04 is the LTS (Long-term support). There don't seem to be vast differences between the two (they are both based on Gtk 3, which is what I thing you're referring to with Gnome 3), but I think there have been updates to Gtk that have not been backported.

Thanks for the offer, but as I'm not a programmer, I'd rather not install a whole bunch of dependencies just for this. I'm also quite handy with creating themes (thanks in large part to ScopeHunter & PlistJsonConverter :) My main use for this would be go get a quick overview of a new tmTheme, which I can actually do at the moment in its half-working state.

Its not too bad, but as long as your happy with it. I'll let you know if I end up building a 12.04 version.

@quodlibet, I tried the 12.10 in my 12.04 VM and it worked fine, but I went ahead and built a 12.04 32Bit anyways. Try it out and let me know how it goes:

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Version

An issue with some disappearing/flickering text is fixed on 32bit.

There's an issue with the placement of the button (not a big deal) on 32-bit:

On 64-bit I get a number of error about PangoFc. I'm assuming I'm missing some dependenices, but I haven't looked at it too closely:

Is this useful?

How reproducible is this. There is supposed to be code that automatically resizes the window to fit the button in. This used to be a problem for me as well, but it is supposed to be fixed. I am wondering if it is a bug that sometimes pops up, or if it is always like that for you. Worse case scenario if I can't get it resized proper by default is allow the user to manually resize vertically.

Not much I can say about that except try to apt-get install PangoFC I guess. I can make a note of it for others if that is the only missing dependency. I am testing on VMs that have all dependencies to build it, so it is hard for me to catch dependencies that others will be missing. Pyinstaller does its best to include everything it can when compiling the binary, but I guess it can't include everything needed.

It's very reproducible, but it only happens when using Openbox (which is what I usually use). On Unity I didn't have any problems. So it must be some kind of weirdness on the part of Openbox in how it renders dialogs.

I have tried installing some Pango stuff but without resolving the issue. Googling the errors didn't help, either. Sorry :(

That is both the plus side and negative side of Linux. Highly configurable, and a billion different flavors of Linux, but it can be a pain to write applications to support all variations. I may play around in the future with openbox and see if I can find maybe the issue. Not sure about the Pango issue. I don't really have the motivation to download a bunch of virtual machines and build on different architectures. A lot of linux issues I am going to leave up to linux people to figure out when it deals with compatibility; it just isn't worth it to me to invest that kind of time.

Yeah, no worries :) If I figure out anything about the text rendering, I'll let you know.
