Install Geany

10 Oct

Geany is a cool editor: http://www.geany.org/Download/Releases

I installed Geany on Ubuntu 12.04 and just want to share my experience.

1. Download source file, uncompress to a directory and then

./configure
make
sudo make install

Now you probably have some errors, most likely you need to install GTK library:


sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-dev
sudo apt-get install intltool

2. Change color scheme in Geany
Download the geany themes, and then

unzip geany-themes-master.zip
cd geany-themes-master/
cp colorschemes/* ~/.config/geany/colorschemes/

3. Install snippets from here. The snippet function is really cool, see youtube video here. After download the snippet, simply copy it to your geany config directory:

cp snippets.conf ~/.config/geany/snippets.conf
