Output file from the tutorial.
Description of problem:
Gwave won't plot any data and crashes from time to time.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every time I try it won't plot or read the file normally.
Steps to Reproduce:
2. Click File > Read File
3. Try a different file.
No plot of data. Headers can be read sometimes. Trying a second file can cause a crash.
Normally plotting of data.
I am running gwave from a terminal in KDE 4.1 desktop.
Error messages on starting gwave.
WARNING: (gnome gtk gdk-event): `initialize' imported from both (gnome gw generics) and (oop goops)
The only error message on crash is "Aborted."
While loading a file.
with-selected "Datafile to load" save=#f defname=#f
chose file(Datafile to load): "~/mycircuit.out"
I was trying to do this tutorial.
I have included the mycircuit.out as described in the tutorial.
To me this is a high priority for processing some data.
If it is high priority, I'll welcome you try to LabPlot
yum install LabPlot
while I'm trying to fix gwave.
I have recommended LabPlot as an alternative to gwave in the past on my blog. Unfortunately gwave gets easily broken.
E.g for your attachment:
Speadsheet -> Plot -> Plot 2D
Change your colour if needed.
I have installed LabPlot as I was going to try it on my new F10 install. It worked but I need to play a bit more with it and colours do need changing.
Thanks for the quick guide to using it. I have lowered the priority due to having a work around.
I am going to try gwave on two other machines, both i386 installs to see if there is a difference.
Hello robin, it seems that the gwave on F-11-development does not suffer from this. I'll continue with the testing before updating the F-10 gwave.
