I just encountered strange wxgui behaviour (Linux 64bit, GRASS 7.2.1svn
r70326 binary snapshot):
When I run it from MATE desktop environment, everything works normally.
When I run it from Fluxbox, wxgui starts, I can select location and
mapset, the main program starts normally. But then, selecting (almost)
any interactive command from menu, i.e. v.info or g.region, nothing
happens. Also, when I try to run the same command without parameters
from the console within the layer manager window, nothing happens,
nothing shows in the console log file if I activate it. When I try to
run the same command from the terminal emulator window running in the
GRASS session, it normally launches the v.info window. Very few actions
do open a window from menu, so far I discovered g.gui.gcp, "Add more
raster or vector maps (Ctrl-Shift-L)" and "Run script" in File menu and
panel icons working (translation of menu items from Czech).
Selecting a non-interactive menu item, or putting it in the console,
like g.region -p ( menu "Settings/Region/Show whole region (g.region
-p)" ), the command works and shows its output in the output pane of the
Can anyone reproduce this? Is it normal, i.e. does the wxgui need some
service not running in a bare linux window manager, which is running in
a typical full desktop environment?
