Display problem with Ubuntu 16.04 and ideaMaker 3.1.7 64-bit

Postby twgray » Fri Jun 29, 2018 12:34 am

I just installed the latest 3.1.7 64-bit .deb package on my Ubuntu 16.04LTS system. I am experiencing problems with truncated dialog box name fields as well as missing tabs; specifically in advanced profile edit screen the last three tabs are missing completely and can't be displayed since I cannot resize the edit window. Is this a known problem or should I register a bug with detailed screen shots?

I really want to love this slicer since I have heard so many great things about it but it is completely unusable on my system.

Thanks for your time.

Hi, I have the same problem. I always prefer to use your great slicer, but since I switched to Ubuntu (18.04 LS), I have to visualise the resulted G-code in the "C..." slicer, as for the preview looks like it doubled Z-heights and garbled the view?! (see Screenshot) :(
All other slicers under Ubuntu work, except my favourite Ideamaker :cry:
I do hope you can find the solution.

Thanks,

I was so happy to see the new 3.3.0 update features and bug fixes, and most of all : 71. Fixed display issue under High-DPI display at Linux system.!!
Unfortunately it is still not displaying properly on my screen after the update?! (see above for my specs)

A bit of a bummer as I now still have to use other softs to preview or slice :-( Ideamaker is my favorite slicer though) Or maybe I have missed something and it can be easily fixed?

:) I think you might be. I am using the latest IdeaMaker on Ubuntu 16.04 on an Acer i5 laptop. The visuals are perfect. I will try on another Ubuntu PC I have and see if that is OK.

Nope, old Surface Pro-2 with i5 is fine too.

Might be something to do with your Linux graphics drivers?

I have that same problem in IdeaMaker 3.3.0 on two of my laptops

First: Lenovo G50-80 i5-5200U/16GB/1000/DVD-RW R5 M330
Second: Lenovo Ideapad 330-15 i5-8300H/8GB/120 GTX1050

I checked on Intel graphics cards, as well as external graphics on both cases I have that same issue.

I have Manjaro 18.0.0

@Vicky@Raise3D: Do you have any solution for the Ubuntu/linux Users? It's really bad that we can't see a real preview. Can you give us the configuration (kind of Linux, UI, Versions ...) with wich you/Raise tested ideamaker on Linux?

I've ubuntu 18.04.1 and all things I've tried didn't work. I tested all kinds of UI (Gnome, LXDE, ...) with live-CDs nothing and no release show me the correct preview.

Please give us help. Perhaps you have new beta we can test, which solve the problem!?

Thank you for help in advance!

We’ve just found a temporary solution for the issue, if the preview issue really brothers your work a lot.
Please change language region formats to be English. We are using 14.04 system, we get the option under language support.
We think we may find out the reason causing the preview issue. We will fix the issue we find in next release.
