in Screem 0.16.1 when automatic entry entitiies in ON, after adding it the editor will move your cursor one space forward to the right. Manually is necessary to move backwards with backspace one space to the left.
I do not know how to include a report.
the information that I can give is that I am running ubuntu 10.04LTS with kernel 2.6.32-22-generic
gnome, screem 0.16.1.
I will be glad to help you with more information if you tell me how to get it using the terminal.

    I'm surprised you can even get 0.16.1 to compile and run without crashing with that new a version of GTK. The 0.16.1 release is 4+ years old.

    Can you try compiling from current CVS? I cannot reproduce the issue you are seeing with current CVS. I do have source tarballs from current CVS if you do know how to download from CVS.

    Dear developer, unfortunatelly I diid not compile screem 0.16.1. I am using ubuntu 10.04 and before ubuntu 8.04 and it was included as a packet in Synpatic, I am trying to build a web site and screem seemed to me as what I needed. Under ubuntu 8.04 there were no possibility of auttomatic entries, but after upgrading to ubuntu 10.04 the possibility exists, only it has a bug.
    If you need further information or a report or a log or something else and you can guide me through the terminal to get it, I will be glad to do it.

    One of the problems with 0.16.1 is that it uses a lot of outdated/obsolete libraries. One of the old libraries 0.16.1 uses is gtksourceview 1.x. This is what 0.16.1 uses for the editor widget. Current CVS replaces this library with gtksourceview 2.x. Screem was not maintained for more then 4 years. I've only recently stepped in and started to update the Screem code to use more modern libraries.

    I cannot currently reproduce the problem you are seeing with the code in current CVS. This problem may already be fixed.

    I am not a Ubuntu user, so unfortunately I have no way of providing packages for ubuntu at this time. Do you know how to compile programs from source?
