With Release 6.04/00 I had typing problems in TBrower GUI - I couldn’t type any letters (for instance to save a histogram, could not type a name for the histo).
Today I installed 6.04/04 release, the problem remains the same.
I’m using Debian GNU/Linux 8.
Yikes! We obviously never saw this.
Can you describe your system more precisely: 64bit? Which GCC does it have? Which window manager?
Did you build ROOT yourself? configure/make or CMake? If not, did you download a binary - which one?
And are there no, zero error messages?
64 bit system.
gcc version 4.9.2 (Debian 4.9.2-10)
Display maneger: gdm3
I installed root using “configure/make” - no error messages appeared
I just tried with a Debian 8.2 Virual machine (Linux debian 3.16.0-4-amd64), gcc (Debian 4.9.2-10) 4.9.2, and I cannot reproduce the problem…
Do I understand correctly that you cannot type anything in any part of the GUI (text editor, file dialog, canvas …)?
Thanks everyone for replying to this message.
Yesterday I fixed the problem, it was related to font variables and keyboard layouts, I set following variables:
and removed all keyboard layouts except “US”
problem solved afterwords, I could not conclude font variables helped or removing additional keyboard layouts
That’s great news !
May be, in a such case, tell us you found the solution before we (Bertrand in that case) launch all machinery trying to reproduce the issue
