Menu bar inert in JUCE v1.28?


#1

I’ve successfuly built both JUCE v1.28 and jucedemo (using Linux), and the front page of JUCE Demo! works fine, along with the tabs, but the menu (Demo, Source Code, Look-and-feel) has no response to mouse. The menu still blurs and fades when the window is out of focus and goes back to normal when the window is in focus, but I can’t get it to open up any of the menus or anything.

I assume this to be a bug in either JUCE or jucedemo, but of course, I have no real idea. I haven’t changed the source code, though, so unless I’ve messed up something in juce_premake.lua, I can’t think of anything else it might be.

Has anyone else noticed this on Linux, or on other platforms? And if so, how have you fixed it?


#2

Ah yes, it’s a linux-specific bug in the windowing code. I’ve got a fix for the next release, but have changed a load of other stuff too so can’t easily post the fixed files. New version will along soon…


#3

Thanks for the reply :slight_smile:

I’ve downloaded and built the new v1.29, along with the included jucedemo, but I don’t see a change in the behavior. Did you mean it would be fixed in 1.30 or later?


#4

no - it all works fine for me… are you sure you’ve rebuilt and relinked it all?


#5

I believe so -

I deleted the juce folder in my home directory, then unzipped juce_1_29.zip, built ~/juce/build/linux, then built ~/juce/demo/build/linux.

I’ll check if the old libjuce_debug exists anywhere else on my system


#6

Someone else just mentioned this in the linux bit of the forum… I reckon it might actually be a Gnome/KDE weirdness, as I’m using Gnome these days. I’ll get myself a KDE distro and have a go.

Hm - I’m currently using Openbox, but I’ll try it on Gnome!
