#1041 Homebrew Geany cannot paste in editor area

brew tap 3togo/quartz
brew install geany-quartz

I have built a quartz version of geany in hombrew

geany 1.24.1 (built on 2014-04-29 with GTK 3.12.1, GLib 2.40.0)
has-iMac:homebrew-quartz ha$ geany

everything went well but I could not paste in the editor area. FYI, Paste works well in scribble area.

Also, even though I compiled geany with "-g", gdb keep complaining that:
Reading symbols from /Cellar/geany-quartz/1.24.1/bin/geany...(no debugging symbols found)...done.

Can anyone help

    Not sure what the problem is, but just a note that for GTK >= 3.10 there is a major flickering problem with the edit area, so its best not to use those versions until its fixed.

    I compiled geany 1.24.1 against GTK2.24.2

    3brew tap 3togo/quartz
    brew install geany-gtk2-quartz

    Still the same. Can paste into scribble area but not within the edit area.

    As I have said previously,
    export CFLAGS =-g3

    does not suffice to allow me to debug using gdb.

    Any pointer?

    Unfortunately OSX is not a platform supported by the Geany project. The homebrew stuff is not provided by us, and so we can't provide support for it since we don't know anything about it.

    I believe that the last time one of our developers tried to build Geany on OSX, lots of problems were found. That was a while ago and I'm not sure what build system he used or if it ever properly worked.

    It does run quite properly right now in OSX.

    Out of curiosity, is different "paste method" used in edit area and in scribble area?

    Good to hear it works.

    By "paste method" what do you mean? The UI activation (such as <ctrl> V or right button menu->paste or menu->edit->paste) or do you mean the internal code?

    All the UI methods should work in both, but the code is very much different since the edit area is a Scintilla widget not a plain GTK text widget like scribble (Scintilla being a separate project www.scintilla.org).

    I meant to ask do any of those paste methods work, and where are you pasting from, the edit window itself, or outside?

    All the UI activation methods (such as ctrl V or right button menu->paste or menu->edit->paste) work in scribble area while all methods failed in edit area.

    Well, scintilla has a native OSX version, so I guess nobody tests the GTK scintilla on OSX operation much (if at all). Sounds like it has a problem accessing the clipboard.
