Ubuntu :: Gedit Does Text-wrap To The Margin?

Aug 25, 2010

I hope I am pasting this in the correct place. I am a big fan of minimalist software- and Gedit is an excellent program. Now I am not a a programmer or anything, but I do like to write, and Gedit seems very well suited towards what I want. A simple word-bashing-out program.

But my problem is that it does text-wrap to the margin. Now I don't particularly want to do this manually, and the option in the preferences menu doesn't seem to work.

Fedora :: Wrap Icon Label Text In Overview?

Jul 4, 2011

how to wrap the text in the overview for the icons I tell you I love opensource. Straight from some of the guys who wrote gnome shell, and yes the reason it was left out by default is because it has some quirks. Yes it wraps text - however if you have long words - like this_file_has_no_spaces then it will overflow into the icon on either side of it. But most application names have spaces. The obvious place you will see this happening is in recent items where that displays system files etc. The other issue is that when you hover/highlight an icon it will only highlight the first line of text. That's pretty much it and with a few lines of code then you can increase the font size of applications and don't have to worry about names getting cut off

General :: Cannot Disable Word Wrap For All Text Files

Nov 13, 2010

I'm not a newbie to Linux, but I'm a newbie to LQ. I've searched the internet for an answer to an issue I'm having with JOE, to no avail.For my editing purposes, I HATE word wrap. I've read the man page extensively and nothing I try works.

To disable word wrap, it says, simply edit the joerc file and place --wordrap in the first column. Done. It works for .pl, and it works for .c (seems to be built in for C). Bottom line, I cannot disable word wrap for all text files, or at least the ones I want to edit. Has anyone solved this?

Ubuntu :: More Direct Text Editor Replacement For Gedit

Jul 23, 2011

I use a text editor mostly for opening up and editing ascii text files that are used by the programs I write. For example, manually editing comma separated value data files.

I've been using Gedit for this, and it's been very frustrating because I started noticing new-line characters (hex 0A) were creeping into my CSV ascii data. It turns out that Gedit has an undocumented "feature" where it silently introduces a new line character at the end of any file you edit, and there is no way to turn this feature off! See this bug report. I installed GVim, and a quick test shows that GVim does the same thing.

I would like a recommendation for a more straightforward text editor, which:

1) Doesn't add extra bytes to the file (or if it does, this behavior can be turned off).
2) Allows you to force ASCII when opening a file (sometimes Gedit will make an incorrect assumption about encoding because of a stray non-printable character)

More advanced features would be nice, like regular expressions for search and replace, but I need this basic functionality first.

Ubuntu Installation :: Strange Line Of Text Appeared On Open Gedit Page On First Use After Upgrade From 10.04 T0 10.10

Jun 11, 2011

Strange line of text appeared on open gedit page on first use after upgrade from 10.04 t0 10.10. I was reading something and copypasting the odd bit onto a gedit note: left the room, returned to find blank page except for "nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn". Then I saw that it was just the tail-end of a longer line which had stretched the page width to max, and by deleting backwards I arrived beneath my intact notes. The line was "I[my bolding]nnnnnnnnnn...nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnby v9898". I googled v9898. And there's a v9898. com. It provides something for Windows systems.

Ubuntu :: Abiword Word Wrap

May 13, 2010

Abiword is splitting words at the end of sentences. If I go to the end of the line and nudge the word, it will wrap but I get an extra space. I can usually delete the space. Sometime, the word will wrap correctly if I continue typing but this is not the typical case.

I know this is not a problem with OpenOffice but I don't want to install 70MB of program just to get a simple word processor.

Ubuntu :: Word Wrap In Gnome Sticky Notes?

May 30, 2010

I started using gnome sticky notes along with the Compiz widget layer in Ubuntu 10.04. The problem I'm having is that word wrap on the sticky notes is hit-or-miss. Most of the time the notes will automatically stretch horizontally (even beyond the size of a workspace) rather than break at its current window size. The only other problem I've noticed is that if I right-click on the title of a note, the resulting menu doesn't display correctly (it's looks like a line).Should I reinstall the package it belongs to?

Ubuntu Installation :: Vertical Screen Wrap After Upgrading To 10.04 LTS?

Jun 24, 2010

I am seeing the Vertical screen wrap problem (discussed in [URL]) on a 64-bit Athlon XP desktop with the Ubuntu version that I installed yesterday (10.04 LTS 32-bit).

Vertical screen wrap, with the mouse pointer offset by a few pixels to the north, taskbar partially visible .

The xserver video amd package version is, xserver-xorg-video-amd 2.11.8-4 and the geode package is, xserver-xorg-video-geode 2.11.8-4. Is it possible that the problem lies in the new geode package (and not the intel/amd driver) ?

Software :: Another Way To Disable Word Wrap?

Nov 13, 2010

I have no need for word wrap for most of what I use JOE for. The man page and the HOWTO don't answer this question, so I'm wondering if it might be a bug. I'm running Joe 3.7.in the joerc file does not work correctly. It works (built-in?) for .c files, and I can make it work for .pl files. But files with no extension? Forget it.Without having to resort to the menu each time to turn it off, is there another way to disable word wrap?

General :: Line Wrap In Less Not Working

Jan 21, 2010

I am having a problem with long lines when displayed in less. It is difficult to describe but I will try...

I have a text file with some lines longer that 80 characters. If I use less to view this file in an Putty terminal set to an 80 character width, some of the lines wrap. So far so good. If I now use the 'j' or 'arrow down' key to scroll down one line at a time all is ok until I encounter another long line (longer than 80 characters in my example). What I see is only the wrapped portion of the line. The first 80 characters are missing. At this point I can type a ctrl-L to refresh the window and then the long line is wrapped properly. It is only when I am scrolling one line at a time that I see this behavior.

I am not certain that this is a "less problem". However, I only notice it using less. vi works properly. more works properly. I suppose it could also be a Putty, bash or environment problem but I'm not sure.

I've played around with options to less such as -X -r -R without any luck. The systems I am connecting to area all running CentOS if that makes any difference.

General :: Wrap App With Dynamic Libraries Into One Large Static App?

Feb 24, 2011

I have an old program that kind of depends on older dynamic libraries. They tend to get upgraded easily with distro's updates. I figured that there would be a script with using ldd that would gather the libs needed and create one bigger, statically linked application that wouldn't break so easily. If I could do this, a lot of older KDE libraries could be removed from my system and easen my life.

My distribution of choice is gentoo, but I'm looking for a general solution that doesn't depend on rebuilding anything. If it runs with libs on their path, I'm sure it can be made run with libs somewhere else!
