solved lm-19.3 file-roller extraction does not retain modification time

How to retain the mod date/time when extracting files from an archive using file-roller?

What I mean is, I want the mod date/time of the file(s) that end up on my local hard disk to be the same as those in the archive.

unzip maintains the date; why not file-roller?

Spotify opens with blank window

I tried installing spotify twice -- once from the command line following the instructions at https://www.spotify.com/ca-en/download/linux/, and then via the software manager. I did not install the snap package. In both cases, spotify ends up with a blank screen. I'm using nordvpn, and my ip address ...

[SOLVED] LM19.3 Menu right-click "Add to panel" doesn't work as I expect

This is a brand-new re-installation of LM 19.3. I am running Panel Launchers applet on the left side of my bottom panel, and the standard Window List in the center, and System Tray on the right. In the main (standard cinn) menu I right-click an app (such as Calculator), select "Add to panel", the pa...

Re: kate - search/replace using regex

Sigh. I completely reinstalled lm19.3, and have added no new applications except kate. The new version of kate (Kate version 17.12.13, libraries KDE Frameworks 5.44.0, Qt 5.9.5 (built against 5.9.5), The xcb windowing system) now shows the regex button. note that the version I got using synaptic was...

How to input Unicde characters in kate or other apps that don't support Ctrl-Shift-u

Kate has not allowed ctrl-shift-u xxxx since at least 2005, according to this . However, I can copy/paste unicode characters into kate. Therefore I followed these instructions to install autokey. I then created autokey scripts for my various hotkeys, such as Alt-Shift-A which uses the following code...

Re: SOLVED regex works in Komodo Edit but not sed (2 questions)

sed does allow a deletion of all lines between a couple of patterns, which I found to be VERY handy.

Code: Select all

sed -i '/pattern1/,/patern2/d' filename
This deletes the line containing pattern1 down to and including the line that contains pattern2.

Re: kate - search/replace using regex

I completely removed kate, purged the unnecessary files, and reinstalled. No luck

Then I installed kate in an old copy of LM 18.3. In this version (15.12.3) there is a regex search.
See the attachment.

Notice that "<Ctrl>+<Shift>+u101<space>" STILL doesn't produce the macron-a: ā

No hits that worked, that had all of the keywords, I mean. Most were for regex...

But never mind.

This is what my kate screen looks like. Please tell me how I engage regex search.

kate - search/replace using regex

I can't seem to find any control that enables entering regex expressions. My file has 216 lines containing text like this <p><span class="parno">218</span> But when I try to search for <p><span class="parno">([0-9]*?)<\/span> I get no hits. My replacement string would be <p>[\1] Is there some plugin...

Re: SOLVED kate editor: difficulty entering unicode characters

I followed the instructions here . It was a bit of a bear setting it up, and I wasn't able to call a subroutine, so I had to put the code in each script, but it works. Basically, the script uses xclip to stuff the unicode character into the clipboard, then pastes at the insertion point. Which in thi...

Re: Column numbers in kate

<sound of palm slapping forehead> :mrgreen:

Getting blind. Just didn't see it, after looking and looking and looking.

Once I lost my spectacles, looked all over for them, then spotted them, in the mirror, pushed up on my forehead.

SOLVED Column numbers in kate

Working with sed, I sometimes get a message that says there's an error starting in column X of the sed command. I can find column X in xed or gedit, but I can't seem to find a column indicator in kate. Is there some way to turn on a line:column indicator in kate? Line numbers, yes, but column? Thank...

SOLVED regex works in Komodo Edit but not sed (2 questions)

1. I'm editing some extraneous <span>...</span> tags out of a group of around 4000 web pages. As there are lots of other search/replacements to do, I'm using a bash script that cntains a lot of sed commands. The text I want to change looks something like this: some text, more text <span class="var"...

Re: kate editor: difficulty entering unicode characters

I installed Kate in Linux Mint MATE 19.3: it doesn't respond to the "u+101" inputs at all. But I can create the macron with AltGr + Shift and the exclamation mark* and then enter a. ā No luck. Right-Alt, plus (left or right) Shift plus !, then a, yields "!a" in my Kate. Moot point, really. I instal...
