I use Fedora OS and I already have installed Kicad’s nightly builds from Copr and also stable releases from Fedora’s repositories. This time, I uninstalled Kicad using the dnf package manager, disabled Copr repos with the following command
sudo dnf copr disable @kicad/kicad
and installed the Kicad package from Fedora’s Updates repository. I belive that’s the most recent stable release. My build infos are:
Version: 5.1.5-1.fc30, release build
libcurl/7.65.3 OpenSSL/1.1.1c-fips zlib/1.2.11 brotli/1.0.7 libidn2/2.2.0 libpsl/0.20.2 (+libidn2/2.0.5) libssh/0.9.0/openssl/zlib nghttp2/1.38.0
Platform: Linux 5.2.8-200.fc30.x86_64 x86_64, 64 bit, Little endian, wxGTK
wxWidgets: 3.0.4 (wchar_t,wx containers,compatible with 2.8) GTK+ 3.24
OpenCASCADE Technology: 7.4.0
Compiler: GCC 9.2.1 with C++ ABI 1013
I’m having some problems with display, things are rendering very badly. For example:
I know Kicad has way better graphics. I had this problem in the past because the nightly builds I used enabled some build flags that caused the graphics to get like that, and the stable release Kicad package I used back then did not enable them, eliminating the problem. The thing is, this time, I belive I do have the stable release package, and the graphics keep messed up. That would not be a big deal if it didn’t cause problems when I’m running the simulator, ploting simulation data, etc.
My questions are: did I install the most appropriate package, or is there a better one? Is there anyway to fix the graphics?
Thank you all in advance for your time.
