Description Glenn L. McGrath 2005-08-02 04:09:44 UTC
When i open a file in anjuta the contents of the file are scrambled across the
screen, often overlapping other text and sometimes blinking or moving across the
screen. When i move the mouse its gets re-scrambled, its very weird....

I dont know what to look at for more information, looking at the emerge logs, i
have recently upgraded x11-wm/metacity-2.10.3, x11-libs/libwnck-2.10.3,
x11-libs/pango-1.8.2, dev-libs/libxslt-1.1.14-r2

My guess is that it could be pango, will keep looking for clues.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
Comment 1 Glenn L. McGrath 2005-08-02 04:35:19 UTC
I create a new user and the anjuta works correctly.

As the buggy user deleting the .anjuta directory makes no difference.

It must be one of the other dot files.
Comment 2 Glenn L. McGrath 2005-08-02 05:00:26 UTC
hmm, scrath my previous idea.

anjuta doesnt display a file correctly even on the newly creeated user.

A simple text file can display correctly, its the highlighting (selecting text)
or special code (eg c keywords) that appears to be driving it crazy.

trying to open ~/.anjuta/ causes anjuta to crash.

Screenshot showing garbled text

As you can see from the screenshot the highleghted text isnt correct, its
supposed to be the GPLv2 text from /usr/kde/3.4/share/apps/LICENSES/GPL_V2
Comment 4 Jean Bréfort 2005-08-04 03:28:56 UTC
This also occurs on an x86 box.
This happens only since recently, probably after the update of a library anjuta
depends on, but I do not know which one...

could you please try with pango-1.8.1 instead of .2 and report back results?

Comment 6 Glenn L. McGrath 2005-08-06 06:09:06 UTC
Yea, downgrading from pango-1.8.2 to 1.8.1 fixed it for me :)
Comment 7 Jean Bréfort 2005-08-06 06:17:55 UTC
The same for me with 1.8.1-r1

Comment 9 Alexandre Sanches 2005-08-12 20:31:41 UTC
Exactly the same problem occurs with SciTE on my amd64 box : with Pango-1.8.1,
all is correct, with Pango 1.8.2, any text restitution can become randomly
crappy. So the problem is somewhere between Pango-1.8.2 and the Scintilla text
widget... Where ? I don't know ! And my knowledge about both is alas very
poor... In my opinion Pango-1.8.2 should be hard masked.
Comment 10 Leonardo Boshell (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-08-15 13:45:27 UTC
The problems are due to a recent change that is not going to be reverted in
pango.  The specific applications/libraries that relied on the old behaviour
will have to be fixed (I think anjuta already released a new version with a fix
for this problem).

anjuta has already been fixed. Just waiting for anjuta-1.2.3.ebuild ;-)
