Stay Safe Out There

Apparently scammers have infiltrated Google’s security to place fake adverts for Notepad++ in its search results. Malwarebytes the scam adverts have been online for months. It is thought by clicking them leads to your PC being infected by ransomware. The adverts all appear under Google’s sponsored h...

Forum Notes On MemPad

Hello PB_ALL As most PB users will know sometimes searching for something before posting can be a just little frustrating. When I was more involved in PB as I came across posts that I thought would be useful or covering something I hadn't come across before I would save the details into a MemPad fil...

Re: Raspberry Pi OS 64 Bit

As an update on my situation, I've abandoned the idea of Purebasic on the Raspberry Pi4 in Debian I’ve created a Windows11 Pro bootable USB and installed a compiled copy of my Access version of the application. It runs fine on the RPi4 with no speed issues whatsoever. THe PureBasic Windows version r...

Re: Install on Chromebook

Thanks for that deeproot. I was thinking similar to that and sticking with the installed Debian11 which loads in a virtual window. I don't want to remove Chrome and replace it with Linux. I tend to think that if Linux 64bit needs 2GHz then 1.1GHz won't be so good. Out of interest it is an Intel Cele...

Install on Chromebook

@PBAll My 64bit Chromebook has Debian 11 bullseye installed. Would you advise the PureBasic install to be Debian 32 or should I install Linux Ubuntu 20.04.3 and then the PB Ubuntu version? I'm a bit doubtful about installing Linux Ubuntu 20.04 as it requires a processor of 2Ghz or better and the Chr...

Re: Raspberry Pi OS 64 Bit

Many thanks for your posts mk-soft. I'll take a look through those but can't say I really know what I'm doing. The error I was getting was a mystery. The program is only about 4,450 lines but has been in daily use in Windows for a couple of years without any problems. I fixed the image issue by movi...

Recommended File Explorer & Text Editor for Debian

I'm looking for a decent File Manager/Explorer for use on Linux Debian and also a Text Editor. On the Text Editor it would be helpful if it showed the column position as well as the line number. A File Explorer close to Windows Explorer would be good. It's a waste of time looking online because all ...

Re: Raspberry Pi OS 64 Bit

@mk-soft you were correct. PureBasic did install Ok onto the Raspberry Pi4 16Bit by following your routine that is included in the package. I've created a new project and pulled in a program and it's database from Windows 10Pror. However, it fails on a line where I'm loading image files. It loads 18...

Raspberry Pi OS 64 Bit

The 64 bit version of the Raspberry Pi OS is now available for download. Release date was on the 10th Of October but will only go on the Pi4 series. Seems Ok and meant I could install the Brave browser, which I did but cannot get Tor to work but it will no doubt be fixed. All I need to do now is to ...

Re: Change Tab Colours in Projects

A little related to this. I thought I'd just mention about colours and colour blindness, which may help some people. For years I popped up error messages, or drew attention to something using red and white. Then I was told that colour blindness gives problems with reds and greens. Colour blindness w...

Re: Change Tab Colours in Projects

Thanks again Spikey.
I'll not attempt that. Hopefully the NHS will sort the glaucoma out but not holding my breath. Last appointment 2019 so I'm thinking it will be another three years atg least. Never mind.

Change Tab Colours in Projects

Hello PB_All,
Is there a way to change the back colour to the Program Tabs in Projects?
On my 6.02 they are black on a dark blue, which I find impossible to read.

If I have 7 or 8 up I just cannot see which is which without leaning almost over the desk up to the screen

Re: Search Every Program in a Project

Correct Tenaja! I've altered it now.
I didn't notice that before I clicked [Submit]. MInd you not often you type Kb these days. Well unless you're talking about a PureBasic program of course, then they are all in Kbs. But never with most other stuff.

Re: Search Every Program in a Project

Marc56us, C:\Dev_PB> findstr /s /i "messagerequester" *.pb This is brilliant. I'll still use DOS commands, particularly dir whatever /s to find obscure or forgotten filenames. But I'd never come across findstr before and it's not in my DOS manual. But just located it from HELP findstr The ...

Re: Search Every Program in a Project

A bit more nostalgia. In 1983 I started with a Sirius with two MASSIVE* 1.2Mb floppy disks and 128Kb of Ram. All at the bargain price I recall of somewhere around £2,300! ( Just to give some perspective, I could buy a one year old Ford Cortina for about double that, but way cheaper than an Apple II)...
