GUI glitch Linux

Post by Norwayyngvelevinsen »

Hi,

I experienced a graphical glitch though I am not 100% sure what steps caused it. I tried restarting TraceWin and I tried to even restart the computer, but the glitch remained.

Removing the config file `~/.config/CEA/TraceWin.conf` seems to solve it and the graphical interface is back to normal.

At first it happened on my laptop and I figured maybe it is something special with my libraries (it runs Manjaro Linux), but then the day after it also happened on my workstation in my office, which runs a more traditional CentOS 7.

I took a backup of the faulty TraceWin.conf, and could re-trigger the issue by putting it back in the folder `~/.config/CEA`. You find the file attached as well.

Hi Yngve,

You are the third person to alert me to this glitch, without understanding its origin. Now, thanks to your file, I have been able to reproduce it and make sure that it cannot happen again in the latest versions of the codes.

Regards,

Didier
