Bug on Linux -Light pollution tool swings an exception
I installed APP 1.075 on my linux box, opened an old jpg image of m3 I once took. Attempted to run light pollution tool on it. Trying to "Show Corrected Image" threw an exception, a strange swingy one:
Encountered error in module:
java.lang.ClassCastException: javax.swing.plaf.nimbus.TextAreaPainter cannot be cast to java.awt.Insets
javax.swing.plaf.nimbus.TextAreaPainter cannot be cast to java.awt.Insets
Is this a consistent bug popping up?
What Linux distribution are you running? I am on Ubuntu 18.04 with no problems.
My laptop is 2 years old, purchased from System 76.
@oopfan I also have a System76 machine (unfortunately, I really don't like their machines!), but with 16.04.
@vincent-mod No, it is not consistent.. Actually, I just tried to reproduce it but couldn't.. However, since the exception is of a "Casting" type on Swing components (the UI), it does not look like its data oriented (depending on the images being processed), so I suspect it still lurks out there. Unfortunately, the short stack trace snippet that was shown in the error window does not give anything into APP code..
If I can reproduce it I will dump the entire log in here.
