preferences window lockup

Wed Apr 16, 2003 3:15 am

Steps that indicate the problems ...

1) Install Oxygen and the license key
2) Start Oxygen ... cd ~/Oxygen2.0; ./oxygen.sh
3) Open the samples.xpr project file
4) Open the xhtml/sample.xml ... fine, looks nice
5) A message appears in the shell window "null: catalogs not found." This step does not always happen.
6) Carry on ... make some edits, validate the document.
7) View the Options=>Preferences ... seems okay, change some colours.
8) Try to view Options=>Preferences window, but no window appears and then every menu option and mouse click just beeps.
9) Ctrl-C

10) Start Oxygen again.
11) Do not open any xml document.
12) Try to view Options=>Preferences window. It opens but it freezes half-way though rendering and does not show the left-hand panel.
13) Close the broken preferences window.
14) Try to view Options=>Preferences window, but no window appears and then every menu option and mouse click just beeps. (Same as #8 above.)
15) Ctrl-C

However, it is not that clear cut. I find it hard to see patterns.

Sorry that i cannot be more help. Are there any logfiles that i should look at?

There is another window issue (perhaps related). At the end of the install process the final window, which talks about licence keys, is missing the vertical scrollbar.

Can you tell me what Linux are you using and what JavaVM ? I reproduced the above steps and it worked smoothly.

I use Mandrake 8 + java 1.4.0-b92

I have attached a "log4j.properties" file. This file will initialize the logging system, making the editor to produce a log file "oxygen.log". Please send this file to dan@oxygenxml.com

---Paste this in a log4j.properties file in the Oxygen2.0 dir--------------
log4j.rootCategory= debug,R2

# R2 will write log to file
log4j.appender.R2=org.apache.log4j.RollingFileAppender
log4j.appender.R2.File=oxygen.log
log4j.appender.R2.MaxFileSize=12000KB
log4j.appender.R2.MaxBackupIndex=4
log4j.appender.R2.layout=org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout
log4j.appender.R2.layout.ConversionPattern=%r %p [ %t ] %c - %m%n

Drat, sorry i left those specs in the previous thread "xmlcatalog fails when using two separate catalogs". Here they are ...

version: Oxygen2.0 trial
platform: linux
jdk: Blackdown-1.3.1

Thanks for the logfile instructions. I will sent the output directly to Dan.

I analysed the logs and there is no exception listed. Was like the Java VM just stops responding.

I have tested again the editor on Linux, Java 1.3, and I obtained the same situation as you. Instead of killing the application with CTRL-C, I have minimise it, then maximise it. The preferences dialog was displayed correctly when maximized, and the application run successfully.

I strongly recommend using Java version 1.4.1 for running the editor. It is much faster, better graphics and less buggy.

You may download it from:
http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.1/download.html

Best regards,
Dan

Thanks Dan, i installed the J2SDK Blackdown-1.4.1-01 and all is now well.
As you say, the whole Oxygen experience is now much faster and windows graphics are much better.
