Hi

I'm running the latest Waveform 11.5.2 Pro on Linux (Pop_OS 20.04 LTS) and I have a nasty problem where some plugins do not display their window controls correctly. See the attached screenshot showing the problem: The Collective plugin is framed with the correct window controls whereas the Chorus plugin is not.

The problem also occurs on KDE Neon but I do not believe the Linux window manager is a factor from what I can tell.

Is this forum the right way to report bugs like these or is it better for me to contact Tracktion support directly?

Thanks
Nick

Following-up on this, I have re-tested using Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS to make sure I am running Waveform on the supported OS as stated on the Traction web site.

The problem persists.

Specifically, the issue affects Tracktion's DAW Essentials plugins - some but not all of them.

Below is a list of the plugins - those with an asterisk will open without the window controls being visible either on the first or second time they are opened:

#TAudio Filter
* #TBus Compressor
* #TChorus
#TCompressor
* #TCrusher
#TDelay Studio
* #TDucker
* #TEqualiser
* #TFlanger
* #TGate Expander
* #TLimiter
* #TPhaser
* #TReverb8
TStereo Delay

The problem only seems to occur when running Waveform on Linux and specifically the Tracktion DAW Essentials plugins. Easily reproducible bug.

Can this please be investigated as I have paid for these plugins and right now am not able to fully use them when running them on Linux.

Thanks
Nick

known long-standing problem in JUCE, as far as I know

But for me all these plugins works well. Are they sandboxed in your settings? Mine - not.

Aha thanks - disabling the sandbox seems to resolve the issue. So, still a bug, but that is a useful work-around.

Can you let me know if it's fixed in 1.0.44

https://www.dropbox.com/s/vb6whwr6noxeb ... ar.gz?dl=0

Code: Select all


1.0.44
- Made all plugin editors resizable
- Added mix lock to all plugins with wet, dry or mix params
- Fixed invisible text in unlock email and password fields
- Fixed unlocking Delay Studio if purchased separately

No Luck.

With the sandbox re-enabled and a quick test of the #TChorus plugin from your Dropbox download the window borders disappear the second time I launch the plugin.

If you then resize the plugin window slightly, does it jump to the correct location?

It does indeed. Incidentally MOK Waverazor LE also exhibits the same behaviour.

I haven't problems with DAW essential.
Waverazor opens without header, but all controls are responsive to clicks, after slight resizing header appears, but plugin become almost unresponsive on clicks.
