Is your system Lua amd64? Is scite-st compiled for amd64? I don't know
for certain, but I should think 32 bit apps linking to 64 bit
apps/libraries may cause some problems.


Yes, everything should be for amd64. First I tried the LPeg library
version from, but
it was for 32-bit system and it gave the usual "wrong ELFCLASS
<something>"-error. So Lua version is 5.1.1 from Kubuntu's
repositories and LPeg and SciTE-st (and Scintilla) I've compiled
myself. Otherwise SciTE works ok, but everything that has something to
do with Lua does not work.
