13.12 GUI redrawing problem on Ubuntu 14.04
« on: May 29, 2014, 05:34:47 am »
I'm having really bad GUI redrawing problems every time I compile my project. Attached is the screenshot. I've tried using the deb package and compiling from source but no improvements. What's interesting is I can still use the IDE if I click blindly guessing where the buttons are for most parts.

I can help debug if someone can point me in the right direction.

Is this problem present with other wxGTK based programs?

The only wxGTK apps under Linux I have are hugin, gnuplot, wxmaxima and they don't seem to show any symptoms of redrawing problems.

Can you describe the steps needed to reproduce the issue? It seems that you've tried to move the panels around.

The steps are pretty simple and consistent. Load my project, hit build. And that's it!

A co-worker is experiencing similar problems on an Ubuntu 12.04 install. The problem doesn't happen on my home computer, which is an identical setup to my Ubuntu at work. I'm wondering if its either a bad GTK theme or something weird about our project at work. I Won't be back at work for another week though so won't get a chance to muck around. But when I do I'll update this thread with my findings.

Might also be a grephics driver problem.

It reminded me the issue with nvidia drivers I had with my graphics card (FX 5200, 256MB) on my old PC; nouveau drivers would behave like this, but not with proprietary drivers.

Could it possibly be this?

So I upgraded the Nvidia driver to 331 and it's still exhibiting the same problem. Maybe it's GTK playing up?
