Using X button the program is always closed

Beitrag von Torpedo »

Hi,

in Z88 Aurora v3, Linux distribution, when I exit with the "X" button, an allert asks me if I really want to quit the program, but if I click "No" the program is closed anyway.

Hello Torpedo,

which operating system do you use? On Ubuntu 14.04 LTS this problem does not occur. I will test your OS as soon as I know which one you are using.
Have you tried to reinstall Z88Aurora and the related libs?

Kind regards,
SHautsch

Hi,
Have you tried to reinstall Z88Aurora and the related libs?
My fault. I didn't double check if I had all the libraries mentioned in the file install_unix_en.pdf.
In fact I didn't have:

Code: Alles auswählen

tcl8.4
tk8.4
Now it works like a charm.

I can't understand. Now it doesn't work any more.
I'm using Xubuntu. Here the specifics:

Code: Alles auswählen

cat /etc/lsb-releaseDISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu

DISTRIB_RELEASE=14.04
DISTRIB_CODENAME=trusty
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 14.04.4 LTS"

Code: Alles auswählen

xfce4-about -V

xfce4-about 4.11.1 (Xfce 4.10)
I open a terminal in the folder where Z88 is saved, and then run the command:

Code: Alles auswählen

./aurorastartv3
The problem doesn't occur if I exit with file > exit

EDIT
Please, can you confirm that the X button in:

Code: Alles auswählen

Z88AuroraV3/bin/suse64/aurorastartv3
works,
while in

Code: Alles auswählen

Z88AuroraV3/bin/ubuntu64/aurorastartv3
doesn't work?

Dear Torpedo,

I tested it this morning on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64-bit with Z88AuroraV3/bin/ubuntu64 and it works perfectly.

I'll install XUbuntu 14.04.4 tomorrow and give it a try.

Kind regards,
SHautsch

Update:
I've tried it on a fresh install of XUbuntu 14.04.4 64-bit in VMWare and it works like a charm.
First I installed all needed packages, then changed chmod on the Z88Aurora directory (like described in the install guide) and then I started from both directories suse64 and ubuntu64.
No errors so far, I can click Yes or No in the EXIT popup and it behaves like it's supposed to.

Could you do a fresh install of Z88Aurora V3 and double-check the libraries? And please check the file permissions and ownership. The brute-force method is doing

Code: Alles auswählen

chmod 777 -R Z88AuroraV3
recursively on the whole directory of Z88Aurora, which should eliminate all file permission problems.

Or did you use the close button "X" in the top right corner and not the exit button of Z88Aurora? This is a common problem because this exit dialogue does not care what is pressed in the popup, it terminates the process. The reason this does not occur when starting from suse64 is because this is not 100% compatible to Ubuntu and therefore is a useful bug :mrgreen:

Kind regards,
SHautsch

Thank you to have done this test.

Yep, I'm talking about it - the "X" on the widget window. The file > exit never arisen problems.

I've double-checked all the libs, the permissions and the owner,
but after fresh installation in my home folder the issue is still there.
Also I've upgraded Xfce from 4.10 to 4.12 but nothing.

So, if it works with you but not with me it seems that there is something
wrong with my installation since it's not a bug at this point.

I'll keep you up to date if I'll able to solve the problem.

Dear Torpedo,

the "X" on the app window is not working that well with our closing-confirmation-popup - that's a known error.
We have to work on that again, but for now you can use the EXIT-Button provided by the GUI or just don't click "X" if you don't want to exit the program :mrgreen:

Kind regards,
SHautsch
