Vuze 5.5 UI Issue
#1
Exclamation 
Hi,

My Vuze was just automatically updated from V5.4 to V5.5 and now I'm have major UI issues.  The tabs keep disappearing on the main window toolbar and when I tried going into "Tool / Options"...the right window pain doesn't always have content in it.  Also, the "My Torrents" tab has major UI issues when I try scrolling the list of seeds:  either the window goes completely blank or the lines are replaced with thick black horizontal bars.

I am running OpenSUSE 13.1 64-bit with Nvidia graphics, using the Nvidia.com driver.   I was running Java 1.7, but thought that may have been the issue so I updated to 1.8 build 25, but the problem persists.

Version 5.4 didn't have any of these UI issues...and the only thing recently updated was Vuze to V5.5.

Can someone help me resolve this?

Thanks,

Jim.

Your problem is probably ™ caused by the old version of swt you are running - if you restart it should hopefully update to the newer one (version 4508)

Also, please check that your startup script has this line in it:

export SWT_GTK3=0   # things don't work well with the preliminary GTK3 SWT support

I'm having similar problems with the torrent list in classic mode using Centos 6.6 (up-to-date) and OpenJDK 1.7 (and 1.8).

I'm running in a 'vnc' service only (headless).  I noticed vuze 5.4 had some weird font-covering issues before updating to 5.5 (after a recent OS patch release), but now things aren't showing properly at all.  I get random numbers/letters showing up when they update.

If you do Help->About does it show SWT version 4508 (I see you have it downloaded, but just checking it was applied).

Also can you check the startup script for the export statement mentioned above.

I've got a VM running CentoOS 7.0 with KDE 4.10.5 and it works fine - is it possible its a VNC thing?

I'll spin up a centos 6.6 VM and try it there after I finish running my errands (a few hours).

SWT was downloaded, and correctly used after an instance restart (before the first image was taken).

I don't know about it being a 'vnc' thing.  The 'X' instance logs show these repeatedly:

(Vuze:10167): Gdk-CRITICAL **: IA__gdk_window_get_width: assertion `GDK_IS_WINDOW (window)' failed
(Vuze:10167): Gdk-CRITICAL **: IA__gdk_window_get_height: assertion `GDK_IS_WINDOW (window)' failed

I guess it could be because I'm not running under the whole Gnome stack; just 'metacity' as a windows manager.

As a test, I dropped everything from the vncserver session except vuze and it shows the same behaviour, so it seems unlikely.

Sorry for hijacking your thread.  Hopefully any solution we find will help us both.. :)

Hi,

I checked the startup script and the "export SWT_GTK3=0" command is in there near the top.

My version info is:

Java 1.8.0_25
 Oracle Corporation
SWT v4403, gtk
Linux v3.11.10-21-desktop, amd64
V5.5.0.0/4 az2


Since you are asking if I'm running SWT verstion 4508...it definitely looks like I'm running an older one.

Well...at least I was.  Funny thing...when I fired up Vuze just now to check the version...it seemed to have downloaded some more update files:

Azuereus5.5.0.0.jar
azlocprov_0.1.6.9.zip
azutp_0.5.4.2.zip
swt-4508-gtk-linux-x86_64.zip


Then it restarted and everything looks great again!  My version info says:

Java 1.8.0_25
 Oracle Corporation
SWT v4508, gtk
Linux v3.11.10-21-desktop, amd64
V5.5.0.0/4 az2


Looks like it updated SWT automatically and fixed itself.  Not sure why it didn't work after the first update.   The timestamps on the first three files is 4:30 and the last one is 8:30.  Weird why it would take so long but it's all good now....everything looks as it should...so no worries.

Bekar, I'm guessing this isn't your issue as your SWT is up-to-date.  Not sure if it helps, but a quick Google of your error indicated two things for most:
  1. They were using an older version of gdk libraries.
  2. They were using 32-bit software on a 64-bit system and missing the 32-bit version of the gdk libraries.
If it helps (since we are both using rpm based systems), the output of the command "rpm -qa | grep gdk" on my system is:

gdk-pixbuf-devel-2.30.1-20.1.x86_64
gdk-pixbuf-loader-libopenraw-0.0.9-32.1.x86_64
gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders-2.30.1-20.1.x86_64
libgdk_pixbuf-2_0-0-2.30.1-20.1.x86_64
gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders-32bit-2.30.1-20.1.x86_64
gdk-pixbuf-loader-rsvg-32bit-2.39.0-3.1.3.x86_64
gdk-pixbuf-lang-2.30.1-20.1.noarch
gdk-pixbuf-loader-rsvg-2.39.0-3.1.3.x86_64
libgdk_pixbuf-2_0-0-32bit-2.30.1-20.1.x86_64

Good luck,

Jim.

Jim, thanks for the comment.

I tried installing the associated gdk 32bit libraries, the log still shows the same errors, just with a different number.

(Vuze:4397): Gdk-CRITICAL **: IA__gdk_window_get_height: assertion `GDK_IS_WINDOW (window)' failed
(Vuze:4397): Gdk-CRITICAL **: IA__gdk_window_get_width: assertion `GDK_IS_WINDOW (window)' failed

So I don't think that was related.

Building up a clean VM with a display head to rule out vnc.

Ok, set up a clean VM, fresh install, yum update, install java-1.8.0-openjdk, copied the vuze directory over, exact same issue.

Doesn't appear to be related to vnc.

Will try a fresh install of vuze next.

Ok, fresh download tested; same deal. Only configuration item changed (other than wizard walk-through) is to select Classic mode.

Not that I'm suggesting that it will fix your issue, but I was wondering why you are on 6.6 as opposed to 7? Also, is there any way you can switch your window manager to test if that is the cause?

The box this runs on is more of a static server box, I prefer not to upgrade to new versions until I replace the hardware, so it's on the 6 tree until it dies basically.

Installed the KDE Desktop collection and tried again; sadly the same.

I am running on Centos 6.6 with Java 1.7 -- I can confirm I have exactly the same behavior.

The Help / About page lists all of the latest versions of SWT:
Java 1.7.0_71
 Oracle Corporation
SWT v4508, gtk
Linux v2.6.32-504.el6.x86_64, amd64
V5.5.0.0/4 az2

Is there any link to the prior version of 5.4.X.X?  I now need to downgrade.  I run Vuze on a server, and I can not upgrade to CentOS 7

I can confirm the same UI problem in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 32-bit.

Vuze reports:
Java 1.7.0_65
SWT v4508, gtk
Linux v3.13.0-39
Vuze 5.5.0.0/4 az3
