Im having some glitching issues while using JasperSoft Studio. (using the latest version from the AUR).Im using GNOME.

Steps to reproduce :

Add Text Field. Select it.
Go to Properties -> Borders -> Click on a border on the square.

The Pen Width (1.0 by default) appears for an instant and then "disappears" (Its still there as I can select it but i think the font color becomes white)

This can be temprorarily resolved by going to preferences and toggling the theme from classic -> GTK or vice versa. The resolution exists only for the current report and does not remain for other opened reports. Really annoying bug.

Ive tried Adwaita and other themes etc...but no use. The bug persists.

I have a version 6.1.1 of Jasper running on another machine running the latest UBUNTU GNOME and it works near perfectly.I tried running this version of Jasper on arch using various settings but it stops workign as soon as I open a JRXML file. I am guessing its a GTK issue.

I dont want to go back to using Ubuntu as I love the Arch experience. Can someone help me to run the AUR version of Arch without this glitch.

And if you think 6.1.1 should run fine on Arch...can someone help me overcome the GTK issue (Ive already tried export SWT_GTK3=0; but it doesnt work)

Thanks.

Installed and mostly working; however, the path issue mentioned in 2015-09-25 is still there. ==> The .desktop file needs to either quote the exec path or use backslash for escaping the space character. On top of that, I do not get any application icon in my GNOME applications menu. Need to dig into that to see what's wrong/missing.

@malah: The package is not out of date, the latest released version is 6.3.1 so you did wrong flagging the package as out-of-date.

Regarding the theme use, see comment on 2015-04-23: the application hangs when you complete a form project if you do not use a GTK 2.0 theme (upstream issue).

@Frontier Why did you use a custom theme ?

When I try to run the program from my xfce4 menu, I get the error:

Failed to execute child process "GTK2_RC_FILES=/usr/share/themes/Raleigh/gtk-2.0/gtkrc" (No such file or directory)

I was able to overcome this problem by editing
/usr/share/applications/jaspersoftstudio.desktop
and changing:
Exec=GTK2_RC_FILES=/usr/share/themes/Raleigh/gtk-2.0/gtkrc /opt/jaspersoftstudio/Jaspersoft Studio
to:
[bad change deleted]
Edit: the correct change is:
Exec=env GTK2_RC_FILES=/usr/share/themes/Raleigh/gtk-2.0/gtkrc "/opt/jaspersoftstudio/Jaspersoft Studio"

@drencrom: Thank you very much for the suggestion, PKGBUILD updated.

There is a bug in the PKGBUILD file. The variable

_binname="Jaspersoft\\ Studio"

should not have the \\ as it already has parenthesis. The symbolic link from /usr/bin does not work because it points to

"/opt/jaspersoftstudio/Jaspersoft\ Studio"

instead of pointing to

"/opt/jaspersoftstudio/Jaspersoft Studio"

The .desktop file generated in PKGBUILD has a small bug. The real pkgdir in /opt is all lower case alphabets, but in .desktop file it seems different. Further, because of the executable file name contain a space, the file name used in Exec line should be amended by add two backslash as escape char.

Regards,

Updated PKGBUILD using Raleigh GTK2 theme workaround.
