ubuntu 16 cb is really crap
« on: April 06, 2017, 05:49:15 pm »
I was using CB for last 6 7 years, and for lasy 2 months I cannot get around a feasible working version.
Painting problems, mysterious disparaging from screen, project lost, all kind of weird stuff.
I start using CodeLite instead. To bad you screw it up so badly...

Yep, Ubuntu Unity is really crap; they finally decided to call it quits and are going to Gnome3.

Have you tried to disable the symbol browser and see if the crashes disappear?

I have seen this too.. But then i swiched from unity to xfce and all worked like a charm there. So there is unity to blame ;)

I still use cb on ubuntu 16.04.

At first sight I was very disappointed too.

Then I:
* switched to gnome3
* compiled wxwidgets 3.1.1 from trunk
* compiled cb from trunk
* disabled the symbol browser in cb

Since then it is ok.
