• Golded, Linux and Terminals

    From Fabio Bizzi@2:335/364.1 to All on Tue Jan 9 10:12:18 2018
    Hello everybody.

    I don't know if the answer to my question is available on internet, I've searched for it but I had no luk.

    I run Devuan Jessie 1.0 in short a Debian without systemd.

    uname -a :
    Linux devuan 3.16.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.7-ckt25-2+deb8u3 (2016-07-02) x86_64 GNU/Linux

    I downloaded the binary package of golded gpl114-7.tar.bz2, it works but I need
    to set the TERM to vt100, with xterm, screen and so on I get this error at startup: "Error opening terminal", with xterm I get "Error opening terminal: xterm."

    With vt100 I loose some useful keys like pgdown/up and so on, is it possibile to use xterm instead of VT100? :)

    I also tryed to compile from the source gps114-7.tar.bz2 but after set GNUmakef.def with linux opts and mygolded.h when I start the make I get this error recursively and the make fails:

    error: "and" cannot be used as a macro name as it is an operator in C++

    this is the first of the bunch:

    8<--snip--8<--snip--8<--snip--8<--snip--8<--snip--8<--snip--

    making depends for gwinput2.cpp
    In file included from ../../goldlib/gall/gkbdcode.h:56:0,
    from gwinput2.cpp:29:
    ../../goldlib/gall/gdefs.h:41:9: error: "and" cannot be used as a macro name as
    it is an operator in C++
    #ifndef and
    ^
    8<--snip--8<--snip--8<--snip--8<--snip--8<--snip--8<--snip--

    Any Hint?

    Many thanks!

    Ciao.
    Fabio

    I don't have an answer to your terminal question, but gpl114-7.tar.bz2 is 11 years old, so it would be best to try one of the recent 1.1.5 snapshots instead. The latest is gpsrc-115-20170303.tgz.

    This works in Ubuntu 16.04 x86_64:

    sudo apt-get install build-essential libncurses5-dev
    wget -O gpsrc-115-20170303.tgz https://sourceforge.net/projects/golded-plus/files/Golded%2B%201.1.5%20snapshots/2017.03.03/gpsrc-115-20170303.tgz/download
    tar xf gpsrc-115-20170303.tgz
    cd golded-plus/golded+
    cp -p golded3/mygolded.__h golded3/mygolded.h
    make PLATFORM=lnx

    You could also use "make PLATFORM=lnx BUILD=minimal" instead, and -j4 to speed up the build.

    When make is finished the unstripped binary is golded-plus/golded+/bin/gedlnx.
