Remove projects from Recent Projects menu

My projects are normally in network drives and they have two paths: UNC path ("\\server\share\foo") or driver letter ("D:\Projects\foo"). I prefer the latter but sometimes I'm not careful and they get listed twice in the "Project/ Recent Projects" menu. How can I remove the unwanted entries?

I click on "Manage the Most Recent Project Lists" and get a dialogue. I highlight the project I want to remove and click "OK" but nothing changes. Log shows this:

[2013-07-18 11:45:03,710] [WARNING] ko.mru: MRU_add: warning: no entry: prefName='mruProjectList', entry='undefined'

How to keep customizations when upgrading

When upgrading to a new version of Komodo, is there a straightforward way to transfer non-default settings and customizations you've set up (I have a bunch of snippets, some customizations of how brackets are highlighted, etc.) on the older version?

Komodo Edit 8.0 - File has code, but showing up blank

Hello everyone,

I'm having a strange problem and I'm hoping someone here has an answer, as my current googling is finding nothing.

I am attempting to open up a javascript file, but every time I do, it shows up blank. There are roughly 3800 lines of code, and all of the lines are shown (including word wrapping characters), but nothing is actually showing on the screen.

I can open other javascript files, php files, etc, but there are two in particular that are giving me this issue.

Attached is a screen shot of what my editor looks like.

Komodo 6.1 periodically and temporarily hangs

Hi. My Komodo has recently developed a very annoying habit of temporarily hanging for 10-15 sec every minute or so. It always comes back so it's not a crash. I suspect it has something to do with writing a temporary/backup file. How to fix?


Ok, so I just got a new copy of IDE 8.5 and new license and yummy yummy, right!? My free Edit version's intellisense has, and still works phenomenally better. I followed instructions found here on removing the "codeintell" dir and letting Komodo rebuild, and intellisense is still not working right! I don't know if it helps anyone, or if there is someone who works with the libraries that can make sense of it, but I have the log file here that shows where it was just rebuilt and where it almost immediately starts throwing errors on a simple php page i was working on.

StarPack auto_path seems wrong in threads (Can't find packages inside the StarPack) - using TclApp


I am creating a StarPack for an application that uses several packages. The application creates several threads as it runs. When the threads tries to use one of the packages it can not find them. I use the VFS Explorer and I see the packages included in the Starpack.
Under $starkit::topdir/lib I can see directories for my custom TCL packages and other sub directories. Something as shown below.


how to import a win32 dll in 64 bit perl script

I have a win32 dll written in C.
I am calling the exported subroutine of the dll from a perl script like this :

my $func = Win32::API->new( 'my.dll', 'func', 'PPPII', 'P', '_cdecl' );
$return = $func->Call( $param1, $param2,$param3,$param4,$param5);

When I am running the same in active perl 5.14 x86, its working fine.

The same script when called from active perl 5.16 x64version , its throwing error:

Win32::API::new: Loading library 'cmapl_api.dll'
FAILED Loading library 'cmapl_api.dll': %1 is not a valid Win32 application.

Thinkpad pointing stick scroll not working with new minimap


I love to use the red litte pointer on my Thinkpad.
There is a function for the little pointer that allows you to scroll pages. If you hold down the middle "mouse" key and push the pointer upwards or downwards you can scroll pages up and down. But scroll doesn't work when I activate the new minimap.

I'd love to use the minimap! Hope you can fix that!

Thanks a lot!

UnicodeDecodeError: I almost fix it...

Hy, i have a problem, when i go profiling python scipt im getting this error:

  File "F:\Programi (INSTALIRANI)\Komodo IDE\lib\support\dbgp\pythonlib\dbgp\", line 128, in _encode_response
    return packet.encode()
UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc5 in position 266: ordinal not in range(128)

Lets check where the problem is ... ( line 128):

def _encode_response(response):
    # response is already utf-8-encoded
    packet = '%d\0%s\0' % (len(response), response)

Using spanish characters in ActivePython 2.7


I am starting to learn Python with ActivePython 2.7 on Windows 7

When I create a including the following line:
print "¿Cañería?"

And run python in a command window (or Powershell), the resulting line displayed is not correct.

However, if I enter python and type the same text:
>>> print "¿Cañería?", the line displayed inside Python is OK.

I googled this issue and tried everything I could do easily without any success.

Have you faced the same problem? Do you have the solution?

Thank you.
