Hello everyone!

I've just made a new release that fixes a couple of bugs reported by Lurkio.

You can find it here: https://github.com/robcfg/retrotools/re ... tag/v1.2.2

I don't have any Windows machine at hand right now, so I cannot create a Windows executable file until mid-January. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Cheers,
Rob

I think you might have misunderstood one of my bug reports! I have already updated the Issue on Github.

Actually yes and no :mrgreen:

Yes, I misunderstood your report, but the same error also happens when trying to insert several disk images from the file browser.

Soooo, I'll fix the issue you reported today.

Thanks for reporting it!

Another small release!

This time I fixed the deletion of selected files from a disk image.

The new release is available here: https://github.com/robcfg/retrotools/re ... tag/v1.2.4

Thanks to lurkio for reporting it!

Hi,

I am trying to build this on Ubuntu 20.04 following the instructions on the git page. I have installed FLTK 1.3 and 1.3 Dev (1.34) fine from default Ubuntu repo.

When i run make in the build folders i am getting lots of build errors (some of which below!) - any ideas what I am doing wrong?

Hi,

I just fixed a couple of missing includes and it's now working for me on Mint 20.

Please update your repository and try to compile it now.

You're welcome!

Compilers can be tricky, that's also a good point for cross platform code. If you manage to get it working on different systems, it will most probably work everywhere :mrgreen:

Hi Rob,

I had the same trouble as Shifters74 on a new (to me) laptop. I was sure that it was something I was doing wrong and didn't therefore didn't want to ask for help. With your changes it works fine for me now.

For your info, I'm using Linux Mint 20.1

Cheers.

Hi Becky,

The fixes to the bugs were done while I was on holiday, so I couldn't test them properly but on MacOS, and it seems Linux compilers do treat include files in slightly different manners, hence the compilation errors.

Please, don't hesitate to ask if you have any problem with my software, I'll be glad to help!

Cheers,
Rob

Thanks Rob. I do like to RTFM / have a good go before asking for help. :)
