I’m having problems with Projucer where many of the buttons don’t do anything; it appears likely related to when it tries to open new windows, e.g. for file choosing. for example, when I go to “File”->“Open”, the “Open Existing Project” button briefly flashes and then nothing happens, or when I hit the “Open Existing Project” button, sometimes I see what looks like the file chooser dialogue for an instant but then it’s gone. ultimately I’m unable to get far enough through the wizard to open or start a project before encountering one of these problems.
I’m running Arch Linux. the problem appears with the current head of the JUCE github repo, and the current JUCE version distributed as a zip file (looks like 4.2.1.)
based on some existing forum threads I’ve explored some possible explanations / workarounds although none have applied or worked for me.
I have zenity installed.
I currently use Xmonad, although I’ve tested with a non-tiling window manager (TWM) and that doesn’t seem to help.
I tried disabling native file chooser dialogues (by adding
-D JUCE_DISABLE_NATIVE_FILECHOOSERS="1" to the Linux Makefile CPPFLAGS, and also via the
useOSNativeDialogBox arg of the FileChooser constructor just in case the former didn’t work) but that didn’t have a noticeable effect.
