I'm really close I think! (I hope). I have re-written the Linux packaging script in Python and it seems to be working great. It builds a package just like the old 1.0.0 release. Supertastic. From that package, SimpleIDE installs and runs great! Unfortunately... the programs coming out of SimpleIDE don't run so well, and I don't know why.
Trying to run the Welcome program results in a successful program of the Propeller (according to proploader anyway) but no text is shown in SimpleIDE's terminal. I tried running the same thing from the command line and got the same results: proploader reports a successful transfer of the app, but then fails to print anything back.
I'd love to hear if anyone has suggestions or wants to give it a try for themselves. You can download the package from TeamCity here
and view my pull request on GitHub here
, where I've also brought up this issue.
