Editing file with program in Code::Blocks on Ubuntu
« on: September 13, 2015, 10:50:59 am »
Hi, Recently I have moved from  windows (8.0) to Ubuntu (14.04.3) and installed CB to write some C++ Programs. CB works perfectly but there is one frustrating thing. When I run C++ program internally form CB, which edits some output.txt file and that output.txt is also opened in CB, CB don't asks me change or not output.txt with new version. To make this happen I have to switch on some other program and switching window to CB again, then it asks me what to do to output.txt. Maybe this problem is not major, but it is really frustrating when you run program many times. Thanks in advance.

When you run your program from CB do you see a console window?
If you don't see console then this is expected behaviour. CB checks for file modification when it is re-activated.
Unfortunately we're not using a file monitoring, because I'm not sure there is on in wxWidgets.

Here is window after run. Then I press "enter" and this console window is closing. After that I have to switch to some other program and then reswitch. This is very bad I haven't had this problem on windows...  :-\

Just tried it with rev 10499 and it works as expected, I'm running enlightenment 0.19.
Probably ubuntu's unity doesn't send app activation event for this case.
Can you try to reproduce this with any other window manager (gnome, kde, fluxbox, cinnamon, etc)?

Well, I am new to Linux and it will probably take a while for me to change GUI, but I will learn and try to post as fast as I can  :P

I've just tried this in ubuntu 14.04 lts in a virtual machine and it works the same as on my main machine.
I'm using 100% default settings in the ubuntu.

Edit: It seems that it worked the first time I start my program...

I don't get. After does it work on your host/guest Ubuntus as I described or not?

It works in enlightenment as expected.
It doesn't work in ubuntu's unity (it works only the first time).
