redraw problems for command output screen - Komodo 8.5


Part of the first column is consistently cut off in the command output screen for Komodo 8.5. This does not happen for Komodo IDE 8. I am using fixed fonts. I tried changing the font size and it had no effect. If I resize the window it will improve a bit sometimes until the next redraw. In general about half of the first character in the first column is clipped.

Do you have any suggestions or work around.

Enter key stops working

Any idea of what can cause the enter key to suddenly stop working without apparent reason? It doesn't happen very often but when it does I need to restart Komodo because I can only produce new line feeds if I copy previous ones with the clipboard.

(And, no, I didn't remember to check the logs until I had already restarted.)

No offence but this is the kind of issues that only happen with Komodo...

SFTP connection error "Component returned failure code: 0x8004005"

I am trying to edit my files on the server using the same installation versions i have at home (pageant 6.0 and komodo 8.5.0) after trying with the most recent versions.

I have not made any progress with version switching, however I now have something to report. It's error dialog reads as follows:

Komodo IDE 8.5.3 did not shut down cleanly; endless Not Responding on every restart

On startup, Komodo IDE 8.5.3 gives this message:

Komodo did not shut down cleanly the last time it was run. Would you like to restore files and projects from your previous Komodo session?

Whether Yes or No is selected, Komodo "hangs" as Not Responding.

** Komodo initially froze and was force closed during setup of Debugging listener address and port.

How to convert a folder of files into a project?

I need to import an existing set of files as a project.

The documentation mentions a feature called "Import from file system" I am not sure if that is the feature I need, but the version of Komoto that I downloaded yesterday (8.5) does not have that item in the "project" menu.

Error Message "Can't load 'C:/Perl64/lib/auto/DBD/Oracle/Oracle.dll" While Connecting to Oracle

I am trying to configure an Oracle connection from Perl running on a Windows 7 desktop to an Oracle 11g database running on Linux; however the database connection step is failing.

The following line of perl code fails:

Debugger on remote machine cannot connect to local machine

I am running into some trouble getting the remote debugger to connect to my local machine. while this might be more of a network problem, I figured I would ask you kind folks to see if any of you have run into this.

I have all of my logicals set on the remote machine (linux server). I have a port setup on my local machine. But when I try to run the debugger i get

Can I use PPM with Strawberry Perl?

I have been programming computers since 1967, hence the name PapaGeek. I am well versed in visual studio C++ and C#, but I am a relative Perl newbie.

I am working with Strawberry Perl, Eclipse, and Epic on Windows 7. The PPM package with Strawberry Perl, to be as polite as possible, sucks!

Can I run the Active State PPM process with my Strawberry Perl? If so, what are the steps that I need to follow to properly install it? Again, you are talking to a newbie, so write the answer like a chapter in “Perl for Dummies”.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Reinstalling 5.16/64-bit

I am among the folks who have seriously broken/missing documentation. My *perl* [and all the packages I've used so far, which isn't all that many of 'em] runs perfectly. But the documentation is decimated [as with everyone else, even the core-components section is missing]. The only "solution" I've seen is a vague-feeling comment that something must have gone wrong with the installation [even though *some* docs are installed, and the actual program is installed], and the fix is to reinstall. such is life...

Encoding in the debugger window

I Komodo 8.5.3. Russian letters in the debugger window is not displayed correctly. See the picture.
Help me, please.
