How to configure SciTE in Linux to support .au3 edition properly (not compilation)?

4 posts in this topic

Hey guys, I work with Linux all the time and I'd love to have the autocompletion features available.

I don't know how to properly install the files found here, under the third grid, for a Linux installation.

http://www.autoitscript.com/site/autoit-script-editor/downloads/

I tried copying everything to /usr/share/scite/, but that didn't help, I still can't select Autoit or au3 under language in SciTe.

Thanks!

I would not put windows based executables in /usr/share/scite. That is where the linux version would go. The linux version is in about 3 directories IIRC.

You would have WINE installed from the repository.

You can then download the AutoIt3 zip and extract that to your home directory. So the path would be like ~/install. You could rename the folder install to autoit3 for better reference.

You can then download the Scite4AutoIt3 zip and extract that into the folder created previous which would merge Scite folders.

Click on Scite.exe to run and the WINE loader should execute the file if it is set as default.

Then perhaps issues could be reviewed. :)

Thanks MHz, I'll try that.

Since there's a native Linux version of SciTE, I figured there was a way to avoid running it in Wine.

I'll test your method, perhaps it works great, but if anyone else has any idea if it can be run natively, let me know!

Ha, it worked perfectly!

I was even able to compile. I'll test that exe later in a Windows environment.

Thx!

With that said, if anyone has a way to make this run natively, much better!
