The Command Line

The other main weak point in Toucan is the command line interface, mainly because it breaks, a lot. So whilst reworking the scripting system I also decided to redo the command line interface.

To take advantage of the new scripting system the new command line interface is a front end to the script system itself, for example to enter a script you do the following:

toucan --script="print(2 * 10)"

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:

The first Blender Foundation release has hit our shores. It is Alpha 0 and from what I have read we will have an Alpha 2, Beta 2, Beta 3 and Beta 4 before a full release of 2.60 sometime mid to late next year.

As such I am already looking at the new file structure and the new .blog file for recent files. Definately requires me to update my launcher and at some point I will be considering some private tesing of the code.

This page is mainly for me to note down ideas that I have, which will be mainly about the Launcher, Installer and similar related things (I can't help with the Platform yet so I won't try to offer suggestions). I'll continue to update this page as I develop code for my ideas and as I come up with more ideas. Feel free to comment on the ideas.

Where I'm at . . . .

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.
