At the time of this writing there's no apt SciTE package for version 5.3.6. For Hollywood programming language you need 5.3.6 or greater. So I made this Bash installer script for SciTE GTK/Linux 64-bit executable download file gscitexxx.tgz. The xxx in the file name is the version of SciTE. Tested on Devuan Beowulf Linux (based on Debian Linux 10) and Devuan Chimaera (based on Debian Bullseye 11.1) . The installer should work on any Linux that is based on Debian. You will need to download the gscitexxx.tgz file from the SciTE website. The installer can enable Hollywood programming language and configure Hollywood path if needed. Options like line numbers, path bar, status bar, and icons are set by the installer.
The following picture is example of not supplying the file gscitexxx.tgz for the installer which script will display message explaining where to download the file.
The next picture is the screen output of the installer successfully completing the installation.
This picture below is what SciTE editor looks like after running the installer and using monospaced font that is configured in .SciTEUser.properties file.
You will need to make a short cut/launcher. The command is /usr/bin/SciTE. The icon is located in /usr/share/pixmaps and file name is Sci48M.png.
After installing you will have an empty .SciTEUser.properties file. To open this user file go to the main menu select "Options" then "Open User Options File". NOTE: The file is a hidden file type (begins with period) and should be located in your home directory.
The following text is the user option file setting. You can use this text for your settings. At the bottom of the settings is some options to override settings the installer configured.
# Configured for Monospaced Font
font.small=$(font.monospace), size: 10
font.monospace=font:DejaVu Sans Mono,size:10
font.monospace.small=font:DejaVu Sans Mono,size:10
font.vbs=font:DejaVu Sans Mono,size:11
# NOTE: If you make changes the following options you may
# need to restart SciTE to see the changes!
# Disable show the full path of the currently selected tab
# Disable Line Numbers
# Disable Status Bar
# Disable Tool Bar
# Enable Vertical Split
# Disable Split Wide
gzip type: install_scite.sh.gz
tar gzip file: install_scite.tar.gz
After extracting the file you may need to set execute permission with command:
chmod u+x install_scite.sh To run the script you must be root or use the sudo command. Sudo example:
sudo ./install_scite.sh ./gscite536.tgz
