[dev-context] SciTE on linux

SciTE is slowly growing on me. Hans, can you remove or guard
these lines from context.properties, please?


Some bits of my user file may be of interest:

   # from tex.properties, accidentally? cleaned by context.properties
   # also from tex.properties, but with 'cls' added

   # these were undefined, it seems
   filter.tex=plain TeX|$(file.patterns.tex)|

   # invented by me
   filter.log=TeX&MP logs|$(file.patterns.texmplog)|

   open.filter=$(all.files)\ # .......................
   # ...........

   # personal preference: i like tabs

   # rxvt is a reasonable default on linux
   # but konsole is the kde terminal, and I like that even better

   # the shell script to call xpdf in server mode

   # patched texexec
   name.context.texexec=texmfstart texexec.pl --xpdf

   # bugfix for Gtk version of SciTE
   command.compile.$(file.patterns.context)= \
           $(name.context.texexec) --pdf $(FileNameExt)
   command.build.$(file.patterns.context)= \
           $(name.context.texexec) --autopdf --pdf $(FileNameExt)

I had to create separate compile and build commands. With SciTE on 
linux, when the pdf browser is started from within texexec, the build
command never exits: the menu remain disabled after the first run,
until such time as you quit the browser manually. It does not matter
whether texmfstart returns to the commandline, Scite waits for all
the (grand)children to exit.



does not help, because then I get nothing in the output window. So
now I do first Ctrl-f7 (compile), then F5 (go), then F7 thereafter.

Not ideal, but I could not come up with a better solution.
