Not much to post. This is a userbar I made a long time ago. I'm releasing it so the community can use it. I still have the source if anyone wants variations of the userbar.

Make a request and within reason I'll edit it and post it. I think I should update this one to say 2.0 at the end :D

Geany Portable has been in development for over a year and a half now. Almost a month ago, I received what I had hoped was promising news on the forums. I originally posted this comment, made after updating Geany Portable to version 0.19.1:

The question now becomes is it worth it for me anymore to promote Geany Portable on this site with the development splash screen, which makes my app look less polished then it actually is?

Notice: If you are offended by profanity, don't read this post. Click the back arrow or press backspace. You've been warned.

I'm taking a leave of absence from Don't worry, PNotes Portable will get updated to 6.0 soon. Geany will also be updated soonish. You should see those sometime Wednesday or Thursday.

So, I was going to write a speech, and I really like using Geany for all my writing needs. However, my spelling is horrendous. (Its a confirmed fact on IRC, ask just about anybody.) So, I needed spell check. How to go about it? Well, here we go:

  1. Download the plugin package from here. A direct link to the package you need.

Hi guys. I've been saying I'll update this or that that. I'm making a post so people can correct me if I'm wrong or if I've forgotten anything.

lately, I've been making some userbars. And siding. And doing school. I emailed John about the user bars, but it seems I shall have to hunt him in IRC. Or twitter him . . . .

K, for what you guys really care about.

Simpler way, with no launcher hacks:
Open GIMPPortable\App\gimp\etc\gtk-2.0\gtkrc

Open your desired theme, and copy the text within.

Highlight style "msw-default" to the end of the file.

Paste in the code you got from the other theme file.

If you need a engine, copy it to GIMPPortable\App\gimp\lib\gtk-2.0\2.10.0\engines. Note that the 2.10.0 may be a different (depending on which version of the gimp you are using.

I'm utilizing a customized GTK theme for the GIMP, called Murrina Night Orange.  A copy is available here, if you would like to try or see it. You'll need to replace "MurrinaNightOrange" with whatever the name of the theme is that you're trying to get the GIMP to run in. I've tested these instructions with GIMP version 2.6. These instructions apply exactly to package version
Otherwise, think of it more as guidelines :D.
Let me give you the usual caveats:

    Here's the code I used for PNotes/ATPad.

    They set the language through a file name, not using the environmental variables or using international language codes.
