Pcbnew showing up wrong after OS upgrade


Hi There,

I have just updated my ArchLinux install and now pcbnew comes up all weird.
I have the latest git pull of kicad as of today.

Anyone know what could be wrong?

Pcbnew gui broken on archlinux

There is a problem with wxpython on ArchLinux, or something similar. It might need rebuilding, there are more details on the developer mailing list.


Someone on the mailing list had the same problem:

And the solution seems to be in this response: https://lists.launchpad.net/kicad-developers/msg33666.html


Also in this bug report: https://bugs.launchpad.net/kicad/+bug/1747677


Wow, thanks guys … installing wxpython-gtk2 as we speak, will see if that works …


That worked … thanks.

Love the new look/widgets also :slight_smile:


This almost needs to be a FAQ. Certainly the KiCad download page could do with mentioning the gtk2 issue


Well the wxgtk stuff is in the known issues section: http://kicad-pcb.org/help/known-system-related-issues/
