Go Down

Topic: By way of note only  (Read 156 times) previous topic - next topic


For many of the recent releases when I bring the FILE menu down and others  it overprints one on the other . If I slide the cursor to the side left or right then go back to the menu it clears itself .

I would suggest a Java layout problem that has been there for quite some time . Do others have this .?
is there a fix?


not on my IDE 1.5.8 on windows 7

Which IDE's do show this on which platform.
be as specific as you can be

Sorry I did not see your reply
This happens on all releases since about 1.3  , up to 1.6.1 I noticed.
I use Linux and my OS is Puppy Precise 5.7.1

It is a Java issue I think . I'll try to get a screenshot and paste it here.
I have the latest 1.6.5 build now and it displays faultlessly now .

However I still have another   java issue which needs the following change to the start script arduino.sh

Code: [Select]
#-Dswing.defaultlaf=com.sun.java.swing.plaf.gtk.GTKLookAndFeel processing.app.Base "$@"
java processing.app.Base "$@"

otherwise I cant read the drop down lists or headings as they are so small . Ill put a screenshot of this here too as I suspect they are related

Ive cleaned out the old . Ill see if I can D/L and show one.
