No underline character
« on: March 07, 2019, 09:19:57 am »
Yesterday I have installed code::blocks 17.12 on Mint 18.3.
All seems fine so far, except visibility of underline character, it shows space character instead, so this way code looks really strange ( especially that this character is used in development really often )
Any clues whats wrong?

I assume you mean that the underscore character ___ isn't being shown properly?  If you go into "Settings>Editor>General Settings" and click the Choose button at the top right corner (to the side of the Font heading), and change the font there, does it make a difference?

I do not know how I have missed this font setting as I have searched Editor and Environment settings like at least 10 times.
I have now changed to some different font and this character showed properly. Then changed back to Monospace and now it shows also properly. Thank you.

Most of the times I run code::blocks this character is not visible again :(
But at least this workaround with changing to a different font and then back to Monospace works.

Where did you get the codeblocks from? Our site or mint/ubuntu's repos?

What is the wxgtk package you're using? gtk2 or gtk3?
(most of the time I ignore long posts)

I have downloaded it from this site.

I do not know how to check it. I could not find anything for this matter in code::blocks and when I put "wxgtk" into filter in Synaptic I get a very short list out of which nothing is installed.

can you give us a list of all wx related libraries installed in your os?
something like
Code: [Select]
apt list --installed | grep wx

Sure:

$apt list --installed | grep wx
