Color Themes not Downloading

Post by akyriakides » Wed May 13, 2020 12:32 pm

Hi,

I have just downloaded CodeLite on my new computer and when I'm asked about the updated color themes and I click on "YES" the IDE restarts but n changes take action. Does anyone know why? I tried both CodeLite 14.0.0 Stable build and CodeLite 14.0.1 Weekly Build.

Thanks in Advance

All the colours you need can be found under: Settings -> Colours and fonts

You should see list of available themes to choose from
Make sure you have read the HOW TO POST thread

Hi! I have the same problem!! The IDE is keeping up posting these two messages. Considering the first message i dont care much because the compiler is already detected and working properly, but the real problem is the second message at the bottom because the program is unable to download, install and apply themes!

Even if i install a theme manually, the next time i launch CodeLite the whole thing is reset at its default values which means there is no theme applied! I tried disabling some features of the Antivirus (Bitdefender) and restarting but the problem persists.

The problem is happening with CodeLite 14.0.0 and 14.0.1 on Windows 10 OS. I have also uploaded a screenshot...

if you get these messages, constantly it's one of two:

1. CodeLite fails to write to %appdata%\CodeLite folder

2. The data under the above folder is corrupted.


The solution is the same:

1. close codelite
2. remove the folder %appdata%\codelite
3. start codelite

This time, codelite will ask you again, but it should be OK for the next time you start codelite

Thanks for the response.

I applied this solution many times but nothing changed. The result is the same... :(

Can you posts here the content of:

%appdata%\CodeLite\codelite.log ?
