@quickwater I've sometimes had issues where menu shortcuts don't work, but selecting a menu entry by mouse usually enables it again. I think it's an issue of whether the main graphics window or the surrounding UI has focus.

Hi, does anybody else has a problem with Ctrl-Z shortcut? Starting from version 3.4.6 it seems to have stopped working for me and undoing through Edit menu is no fun.

@b00rt00s, I see. Yes, I did a cleanbuild and everything works now. Thank you!

@samueldy I checked once again. The checksum You gave was from version 3.5.6. You probably haven't deleted the old sources.

@samueldy I've tripled checked and every time checksums were correct. I downloaded a snapshot from this page, used yay and my personal directory in which I make the package.

Maybe You had some problems during downloading?

Hi, just tried to install the new 3.5.7-1 version, but both MD5 and SHA256 validity checks are failing. My downloaded VESTA-gtk3.tar.bz2 has SHA256 "492556a4dc818f9517c5e23db4c10f0f9c696dd6b3421e70453c09440f0536f9", not "f159bc0d7d68c3acaedbbaa0a7548f093d9572247572b7c71787919302b8edf2".

VESTA 3.5.2 has been released. It also fixed previous CHGCAR issue. Please update.

simonp commented on 2020-05-02 19:32

the pkgbuild is still using http while now supports https:

For guys who get blank output when open CHGCAR:

Go to the official website and download and use GTK2 version.

I have reported the bug in the forum. Also, when I have time, I will try to create the package vesta-gtk2 in AUR.

After a bit of googling I found a workaround:


This disables iris and DRI3.

In my previous setup I had DRI set to 2 in Xorg and this lead to the segfault reported below. Now I can use DRI3 systemwide and revert back to i965 driver and DRI2 for VESTA.
