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?
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:https://lists.launchpad.net/kicad-developers/msg33642.html
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
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/
