Can't Select Text Using Arrow Keys in GAMS Studio on Ubuntu

Post by vbind » 6 months ago

Hello everyone,

If I keep shift pressed I can't move the cursor and hence can't select text. I'm using GAMS Studio 0.14.6. I've checked some older studio versions and the problems seems to start with 0.11.3 (0.11.2 still works).

I'm using Ubuntu 18.04 and GAMS 30.3.

Best regards,
Viktor

Hi Viktor,

I am sorry to hear that! We saw the same problem on some Fedora version in the past, but this got resolved by now. Back than this was caused by some AppImage incompatibility and the workaround was to compile Studio yourself on your platform and not to use the AppImage we provide. Is that an option for you?

Best regards,
Lutz

Hi Lutz,

thank you for your suggestion.

Seems to be not the most convenient option. I'll test it next week after having upgraded to Ubuntu 20.04.

Best regards,
Viktor

Hi Lutz,

I've compiled the latest GAMS Studio (1.1.0) on Ubuntu 20.04 which fixed the problem. I'm able to select text again using the keyboard.

Any chance that this issue will be fixed in the original AppImage binaries?

Best regards,
Viktor

Viktor,

We hope that this will be fixed with the next minor Studio release, which is scheduled for the end of next week.

Best regards,

Viktor,

This should be fixed with Studio 1.1.1 released today: https://github.com/GAMS-dev/studio/releases
This version will also be part of the next minor release of GAMS.

Best,
Lutz
