Codelite startup

Post by zaphod » Tue Apr 30, 2019 12:32 am

I am just bringing up a new Linux machine (Mint 19.1) Kernel 4.15 and have installed Codelite 12. When it starts the Codelite splash dialog shows up momentarily and the disappears. I have tried running Codelite from a terminal but no message is sent to stderr.

Uninstalling and reinstalling has had no effect. Something is busted in my system but I don't know what. I use Codelite regularly on other workstations without any trouble.

Any guesses, please...

Have a look under ~/.codelite/codelite.log and see if you find something interesting there
Also, try checking: ~/.codelite/codelite-stdout-stderr.log

This is what I see but only the GTK stuff makes any sense to me and GTK tends to warn about everything (that's OK).

Try deleting the entire folder ~/.codelite and start CodeLite
Does it help?

I have made a donation to your project. Buy yourself a couple of these:

A pair of these and a decent graphics card makes for an excellent workstation with acres of screen space. ;)
