I have a fresh install of Ubuntu 9.04 Desktop, and decided to install Screem (via Synaptic PM). I wanted to change the width of tabs (defaulted to 8), but when I clicked the down arrow next to the box, it set itself to 1 and refused to be reset to anything else. Now all my documents are a bit squished, and I can't seem to find any way to change this preference, whether from within Screem or via its configuration files.

Discussion

  • I have this same issue.

     
  • Me too, It's preventing me from using this otherwise good program. Has any progress been made?

     
  • I would love to see this issue addressed also.

    Wohoo, WORKAROUND!!!

    gconftool-2 --set /apps/screem/editor/tabwidth --type float "4"

    where 4 is the tab-width you want ;-)

    This should now be fixed in current CVS. The right margin column position had the same issue. This should also fixed in current CVS.

     
  • That workaround did not work for me. I tried:

    gconftool-2 --set /apps/screem/editor/tabwidth --type float 4

    without the quotes around the value for the tabwidth setting, and it worked.
