still graphical issues in Eeschema also in GTK+3 builds (Re: 5.1.0-rc1)


This thread is getting offtopic ... better open up a new one.

I personally find such "suggesting windows" more annoying than helpful.
This whole topic is nothing more than the issues that can probably
happen because of the various know problem with graphic cards and
drivers, and mostly only hit people on Linux based systems. So why
bothering people that are affected by this like Windows users?

Better is a place where users can be pointed to in general. We have such
a place on the main website for KiCad. It might need a bit of update.


For more specific hints, especially in context to the used Linux
distribution this needs to be handled by their maintainers. If really
needed a dedicated information can go to the Help menu in KiCad which
I'd more prefer than pop up windows.
