Printer Information isn't displayed

I've tried Repetier (client, both tar and AppImage) for Linux and in both versions the Printer Information window (Alt+I) is not displayed properly. It hangs and block further normal app usage. The window is created, it has a title, but the content isn't drawn - it contains a piece of underlying window . E.g. its paint routine down't overdraw the window canvas.  I also can't close this window as it doesn't have a close button.
No errors is printed to console or log during that.
I'm trying to display the window just after printer connection. My log just before I press Alt+I is following:

Could you at least add a close button to the window title of this window, so it can be safely closed?


  • UPD: Older 2.0.5 version of RepetierHost doesn't have this problem.
  • Windows can be closed using esc key. All should have that function. But if it is not reacting any more it probably might also not work with keys. Or is the rest still working?

    Appimage or tar file?
  • You're right - Esc key works even if window is not responsive.
    The problem is in both AppImage and tar of 2.2.3 ver.
    As for 2.0.5 were the problem isn't reproducible - I've tested a tar only.
  • I've also tested tars of 2.1.6 and 2.2.2
    2.1.6 works, 2.2.2 have the info window problem. So 2.2.2 is a first ver with a problem.
  • I've adjusted download url and got ver 2.2.0 and 2.2.1. They both have a bug with Printer Information window. So it started between 2.1.6 and 2.2.0. Unfortunately, there is no versions in between on server.
  • I have refactored all windows to better look on linux. They now use autolayout to adjust sizes. For some reason this one does not work on linux. Moreover one opened the menu does not work correctly any more. So there is something confusing mono. The exe file is the one from windows - it is compiled on windows and just used with mono. And windows is still working. That is the main pain with mono - it is not 100% compatible and I then have to find which settings do not work. Hope I find it for next release. Thanks for showing it.
  • Ok found it. AutosizeMode GrowAndShrink is not working for linux - need to set it to growonly to work. In test version it already works so next release as well. Thanks.
