Write Activity Bug

Write activity did not work well when I tried it today. When I typed the text, the menu bar items disappeared and then reappeared when I dragged the curser over the area where the menu bar is located. I have recorded it to show how it looks on the screen.

  1. Interesting, I’ve not seen Write or any other Sugar activity toolbar behave like that before. My first reaction is to think it is some graphics card driver incompatibility. What hardware are you running that Sugar on? Did the same machine work fine last time you tried Write?

    • Hello, Gary! By “hardware,” are you asking what computer Sugar is running on? We are using Acer Aspira One netbook that has Windows 7.

      • Thanks for responding. It happening every time I use it and when I reboot it is still same. Please see Mel Chua’s comment.

  2. From http://blog.melchua.com/2010/02/06/soas-deployment-hardware-the-ideal-set/:

    It’s an Acer Aspire One 532h, which has a Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3150 card (from http://www.amazon.com/Acer-AO532h-2588-10-1-Inch-Onyx-Netbook/dp/B0030LTLRO – Melanie, you can usually google ” graphics card” to find this.)

    The Acer originally came with Windows 7, but we reinstalled with the Fedora 12 XFCE Spin before it got a chance to actually boot into Windows. 😉 And we’re running the 2/16 development version of SoaS on it – not sure how to find out what driver that’s using for the card, though.

    Hope this helps – we should probably put it in a ticket somewhere. Melanie and Lynne May, I’ll show you how to do that when I get back to Boston tomorrow.
