[Ubuntu] Ctrl+C disabled in build log ?
« on: July 27, 2011, 02:16:09 pm »
Hi,

I've searched the forum for some hints but couldn't find anything : using Ubuntu (I can't recall for Windows), you can't use Ctrl+C to copy strings in the compiler log, because the code text control has priority, even when not focused. I have to right click it and select "Copy selection to clipboard", which is neither handy nor standard.
Furthermore, when I right click on the selected text (only in the compiler log), coloring changes and the selected text becomes white... on a white background ! (was white on a gray background before right click)

Is there any chance that this can be fixed ? Copy/pasting compiler messages can be very useful to google obscure C++ template errors.

This is a wxGTK bug/feature, see here for details: http://trac.wxwidgets.org/ticket/11320

There is a workaround though: select the text, then right click, then copy selection to clipboard

Damn dependencies... I know the workaround (I wrote it in my previous post), it's just not handy.
I guess I'll wait for wxGTK to fix it (will they ?). Thank you :(

I doubt they'll fix it...

At least, would it be possible to rename it simply "Copy" and "Copy all" ?
Every time I have to double check I'm not clicking on "Copy content to clipboard" :) The two items are approximately the same length, and the key word is in the middle of the phrase.

if you want to copy text to more detail switch to the build log tab. Sounds like your using the build message tab.

Don't I?

he said "Copy content to clipboard" which only comes up when you right click the message log. It sounds to me like he only wants to copy the "keyword" in the middle of the sentence which he can do from the build log.

Unless I'm misunderstanding. But regardless, it's hardly "random spamming" and certainly not worth freaking out about...

ouch:
He knows how to copy what he wants with the context menu, his problem is that ctrl+c is not working!
Thus your post is unrelated to this discussion.
