Cannot change a theme

Post by Porssimies » Mon Sep 07, 2020 7:35 pm

Just installed the latest stable version of CodeLite 14.0.0 on Windows 10 and when I go to "Colours and Fonts" / "Customize" the Available Themes listbox is empty and I cannot change the theme.

It also keeps asking settings every time I launch the application.

What to do next to get it work ?

Could it be the unicode characters in %appdata% path ?

For example:
C:\>echo %appdata%
C:\Users\Käyttäjä\AppData\Roaming

You can try and fix this:

Pass `-d` to CodeLite to a different location:

- Create a new folder C:\codelite_settings
- Make sure it is writable
- start codelite like this:

Code: Select all

codelite -d C:\codelite_settings\
If this works, you can change CodeLite shortcut on your desktop (assuming you have one)
to always pass this when launching CodeLite
