Re: Viewing document files

Hi Bill, Do you need to open the document "in program" or just open the document externally for review ? If just for a review, you can use the Linux application xdg-open {document path} xdg-open will open most document types within their native applications and is installed on most common Linux dist...

Re: Raspberry Pi, Raspbian and Gambas

Re: Strange Stuff with the Gambas editor

Re: Multimedia File Conversion

Hi Cogier, I did have a look this morning and as I thought, you used the 'H' controls and I don't use those at all.

Re: Multimedia File Conversion

Thanks Cogier - good catch.
