BTW, I do not want to be to picky and certainly it is OK for this release, BUT should not we install into /usr/local in the future?

No, it is not allowed for .deb packages. BSD installs non-core packages there. Not Debian/Ubuntu or any Linux I know.

/usr/local is reserved for manual installs (from source), like when you need python2.2 and it is no longer in the repository.

Normally in Unix /opt is meant for third-party application packages. It is the closest to Windows' Program Files.
Solaris does it that way, SuSE/Novell to some extend AFAIK. But Debian ignores its existance. Stuff installed there won't even show up in the menu by default. I don't know if Ubuntu is different, suspect not.

Thank you for your effort!
Works fine as far as I can tell.

I'll use this post to file a bug against upp:
There is a layout glitch in build methods. See attachment.
Also, edit fields height is too large for font size. See the white stripe padded with background color. Is that intentional?


Which theme do you use? I see 12 different themes on Debian Lenny... Rolling Eyes and i've tried with some of them and cannot reproduce this bug.

Well, zero debugger .deb I was introducing here dose exactly this: installs in /usr/local.

Maybe this help to clarify where should be installed upp:
/usr/bin
/usr/local
We have to install in /usr/local just when we want that an update to not change our version of software and usually in /usr/local software are installed manually as guido said.

We should follow the line of all other software (like gimp, gftp, nmap, etc.) which get installed in /usr/bin. I think is better stay on current installation path.

...if we have installed g++-4.1 it needs libstdc++6-4.1-dev (g++-4.1 dependencies say that) and if libstdc++6-dev (no matter which version 6-*) is installed, Utlimate++ can be used to develop software...

I've updated linux_scripts from svn to use libstdc++6-4.1-dev.
As I said in a message, I've tried U++ on Ubuntu 8.10 (next release, still Alpha), i hope this fix also U8.10 problem, which was caused by merge of some packages from Debian in Ubuntu.

xfce theme engine. No problem for me, I'm not married to it, don't even use xfce as such. But xfce is still quite popular.

This rather looks like the layout is compressed (too small screen).

Build methods dialog is rather big. Can this be a problem?

I've tried Upp under Debian Lenny with xfce with various themes but i couldn't get your output, indeed there are some glitches but with border of widgets not with layout positioning. I'm attaching 2 screenshots.

Thanks a lot for your contribution. I tried to install some U++ releases on debian Lenny and xfce desktop but the ide always crashed showing:

(<unknown>:2926): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_ref: assertion `G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed
libpng error: Error reading input file!
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'Upp::JpegErrorException'

Solving dependencies, the package you made is working.
Thanks again
