I’m running kicad (5.0-dev-4067-g7a57606af) on archlinux installed using the kicad-git AUR package.
Two weeks ago (presumably) after updating some packages my pcbnew started to look like this:
This only happens when pcbnew is launched via the kicad launcher thing.
There are no error messages on stdout. (except for some unrelated wxPython warning that I’ve been seeing for a few months now).
Interestingly starting pcbnew directly via a shell works as expected.
Since I’ve first encountered this I’ve made sure all dependencies of kicad are up to date,
that there is no old outdatet AUR package getting in the way and I’ve recompiled kicad a couple of times.
No improvement so far.
Running kicad in gdb I found one segfault, that occurs when I try to close pcbnew.
The GUI is weird way before that.
I’d suspect that might be an entirely different issue.
Anyone here seen something similar to this?
I’m currently out of ideas on where to poke this thing.
