Ben, is there a reason why you do not install/use Livecode Server instead of Livecode IDE on your system? You could run livecode scripts directly from shell. Regards, Matthias - Matthias Rebbe Life Is Too Short For Boring Code > Am 29.01.2021 um 19:44 schrieb Ben Rubinstein via

Andrew, are you using Parallels/Windows for testing? I just saw something somewhat similar where I suddenly couldn’t paste into a field; typing did work (Windows 10 running in Parallels, in IDE, not runtime). I went to Parallels’ settings for Windows, unchecked and rechecked “Share clipboard”

installing and running LC on 'headless' linux server

So I want to install LC on a headless - i.e. no GUI, access over SSH - Ubuntu 20. (Then I'll be using it to run a particular stack on a cron job.) I've done this a long time ago with a standalone - but in this case I'd rather be able to do it with a stack. The only thing that I know about

I’m thinking (guessing) that he’s into the more general problem that you get when you are trying to print say a booklet with multiple pages of the book per printed sheet. You do have to print double-sided (and your printer may help you with that) but the key is lay it out so that page 2 of the

Hi Richard, it's client side. The project is a messaging app, principally for mobile. SSL/TLS certificates issued with client software enable servers to know that the connection is allowed at a network level before any user authentication. In the early stages of development it was simple enough

I may be missing something, but a document itself is not double sided. I think you may be saying that you want to automate the process of printing and force the output to be double sided. I do not think that is possible, although I can see how that would be useful to push print properties

Hi Richard The idea of client certificates was why I was looking for this feature for the past 15 years. I know that PKI is complex but it is important (which is why browsers implemented it decades ago). Even tsNet behaves very differently on Windows and OS X when it comes to server certificates
