Auto complete not "auto"

Post by myk45 » Wed Nov 19, 2014 9:40 am

Hi All,

I installed CodeLite couple of weeks ago and boy do i love it! :) :)
The software is awesome, the support is great!
Now, to my question. I see that the auto-complete is working only when i press "Ctrl + SPACE".
For example,

when I do #include, I need to press "Ctrl + SPACE" to invoke the header file options.
These don't come by default. Is there a setting I need to set?

Thanks!

thanks for the reply Eran! I have version 2.8 of codelite. This doesn't have the settings->code completion option.
I installed CodeLite via the Ubuntu software manager. Is the option you mentioned, available only on newer versions?

To be honest, I dont remember v2.8 settings...
Why don't you upgrade to 6.1?

v2.8 is old and unstable, and ofc, we don't support it
You can install the latest version (6.1) from our Debian/Ubuntu repository:

http://codelite.org/LiteEditor/Repositories

Before you install it, make sure you purge the old version:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get purge codelite codelite-plugins

Thanks Eran. I am trying to upgrade, and i get the following:

codelite : Depends: libglib2.0-0 (>= 2.41.1) but 2.32.4-0ubuntu1 is to be installed
Depends: libhunspell-1.3-0 (>= 1.3.3) but 1.3.2-4 is to be installed
Depends: libjbig0 (>= 2.0) but it is not installable
Depends: liblzma5 (>= 5.1.1alpha+20120614) but 5.1.1alpha+20110809-3 is to be installed
Depends: libpango-1.0-0 (>= 1.18.0) but it is not installable
Depends: libpangocairo-1.0-0 (>= 1.14.0) but it is not installable
Depends: libssh-4 (>= 0.6.1) but 0.5.2-1ubuntu0.12.04.3 is to be installed
Depends: libstdc++6 (>= 4.9) but 4.6.3-1ubuntu5 is to be installed


Sorry, I'm not a very experienced Linux user. Can you please let me know how i can fix this.

Hi,

Which version of ubuntu are you using? Have you updated it recently?

How are you trying to install CodeLite? Using apt-get (or synaptic or whichever front-end)? Or direct with dpkg?

Regards,

David

Hi David,

I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit version.
I was following this link: http://www.sysads.co.uk/2014/05/install ... inux-mint/
Doesn't seem to work yet. Trying a sudo apt-get -f install now

I've not updated it recently.
No luck with this too. I had to give wget http://ubuntu.intergenia.de/ubuntu//poo ... btiff4_3.9.7-2ubuntu1_amd64.deb
All those steps worked fine, however, apt-get install gave the same errors as earlier.

EDIT: Now, I'm not able to install the previous version also :( Any hints?

I thought it would be something like that. CodeLite 5.4 is the last version that supports 12.04.

However 5.4 is still in the repo, and you should be able (or at least should have been able ;) ) to install it by following the instructions in http://codelite.org/LiteEditor/Repositories, substituting 'precise' for utopic or whatever in your repo line. Or you could have followed the 'Previous CodeLite Releases' link to arrive here.
