jEdit doesn't like Compiz Fusion and desktop effects
Submitted by AzizLight on Monday, 1 December, 2008 - 01:48
Hi everybody,
I am using Ubuntu 8.10 and jEdit 4.3pre16. I realised that jEdit doesn't work well with Desktop Effects. I already had minor bugs with v4.3pre15 in Ubuntu 8.04 (windows went all white - by windows I mean popup windows, ie: when I try to change the syntax highlighting - that's not really minor...) but now it just got worse :S This screenshot will describe the situation very well:

I tried to disable desktop effects and the problem was solved. Also I tried to re-enable the effects after having mazimized the window and it stayed maximized.

The desktop effects should actually break pretty much any 100% Java App.

You can do this fix:

export AWT_TOOLKIT=MToolkit

Thanks a lot. I tried to add the line to ~/.bashrc but it did not work. I then added it to /etc/environment and now it works; for those who may have the same problem: I had to log out and log back in to make it work.

Anyway thanks a lot for the help.

Sure. NP.

The bashrc one should have worked though. Did you log out and back in again after you put it in there?

Unless you start up jEdit from the command-line, you would need to log out and back in again to see the affects of adding it to your bashrc (I think).

Regardless, glad it worked for you.

Cheers.
