Re: LineGroup.csv is not readable

The preferences dialogs save what ever is in the file choosers on the screen to user.cfg. They load what ever is in user.cfg to the file choosers. If there is no entry in user.cfg for a preference, then it is blank on the screen. If the file chooser is filled, then there was an entry in user.cfg. c...

Re: Features for money?

I just realized that this sounds a lot like Part Design subtractive operations, I suggest having a look at the Part Design workflow and maybe the PD boolean operations, I suspect this can already satisfy your needs, at most requiring a few tweaks to your workflow.

Re: Attributing FreeCAD in workbench

https://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.en.html#GPLPlugins while the page is for GPL the criteria for defining combined or separate work for plugins still applies to LGPL IMO, so I would consider a workbench to be derivative and therefore covered by the LGPL requirements. Note that making the workbench...

Re: Bug in the Select Color dialogue

After all, in such a programme, the specific system calls of the Mac must be present, for example, to appear in a dialogue a button with the corresponding function at the intended location. If my assumptions are correct, then such a Qt-lib can only take into account the lowest common denominator, w...

Re: Help with git for testing Addon Manager

Oh sorry -- although it does do a fetch every time, it's really looking at the output of git status to determine the up-to-date status. Nevertheless, if I specifically reset to a specific revision, git status returns nothing. Ah that's probably a better option, in my testing after resetting to a pr...

Re: Help with git for testing Addon Manager

Using which command? maybe git rev-list --count master...origin/master the remote has to be fetched up to date for this. Check other options of this command if the output of --count is not satisfactory. It's probably a good idea to programmatically get the correct tracked branch and local branch th...

Re: Help with git for testing Addon Manager

When I try that, "git fetch" doesn't return anything, it acts like it is up-to-date. well fetching is not the correct way to check for updates, you need to compare the remote to the local checked out state, what if I run git fetch on an outdated addon? the checked out copy remains outdate...

Re: Attributing FreeCAD in workbench

Reading the OP I think they've probably seen that already... As I understand it an addon/workbench would still be considered derivative work so you must still share your code with the users of it so you can't really make it proprietary, same goes if you are actually going to provide a modified versi...

Re: Bug in the Select Color dialogue

What to do with these bugs? Ideally they should be reported to Qt as mfro has done, but they will likely ask for a minimum example code to reproduce the issue, which might not be easy to do for you, for now you can post here and maybe someone can guide you through reporting it to Qt or will report ...

Re: FreeCAD is interfering with VLC (Video player)

Thanks very much for the reply, but why would you assume these directories DO exist? these are standard directories and most distro installers out there create them by default (and they are always created by windows and most likely macOS too), there are many bare bones distros that don't create the...
