This is really a strange one, after numerous installs on Linux, this is a first for me.

Each application I create has this, on every form/frame.

What might cause this?



Any suggestions appreciated.

(Using CB 16.01 on Linux Mint.)

this is probably a thing about your GUI framework. Codeblocks is just a IDE... Maybe if you tell us what framework you are using we can "guess" what is wrong, but general speaking this is the wrong forum to ask this kind of question because it !probably! has nothing to do with codeblocks. (it can be how the resource compiler is called?)

Good point BlueHazzard.

I just had a reply from someone in a C++ forum that suggested this is a Linux Mint issue.
After that, I observed this also on a Mint dialog window for the first time.

It seems to display on windows not having their own icon located to the left of the title.

So I added an icon to my Code::Blocks test app wxFrame, that solved it.
My icon is displayed, not the fault icon.
