[Solved] File dialog in Ubuntu PPA FreeCAD package for Disco

Postby mrvanes » Sun May 12, 2019 9:22 am

I'm using the FreeCAD 0.18.1 from stable PPA for Ubuntu Disco and have problems using the file selector dialog.
The shortcut items are greyed out and disabled and all the navigation icons are missing.
Anyone else seeing this? Should I file a bug instead of posting here?

OS: Ubuntu 19.04

Version: 0.18.1.

Moved to Help forum.
You need at least FreeCAD 0.19.23300 to edit my current sketches.

You should always add your FreeCAD info to such questions and you may want to read the first section in the OS specific issues. Hope this helps.

Added version information to the question. OS specific questions didn't cover my problem.
Actually, setting DontUseNativeDialog to false did resolve my problem!

Added version information to the question.
As your issue is solved it is no longer relevant here, but for your next post you should follow the IMPORTANT link above and find out how to attach your FreeCAD info. It tells much more than a single version number.

You can mark the subject of the first post by prepending [solved].
