Description Richard W.M. Jones 2010-06-28 10:04:23 EDT
Description of problem:

I'm pretty certain the last time I used Blender that I should
be able to start blender and press the space bar and have a
menu appear.  (Or Shift A).  However whatever I try I cannot
get any menu to appear.

Also (maybe related) the File / Add / Timeline / Game / Render
/ Help menus(?) along the top of the screen were added since I
used Blender last, but these menus or buttons or whatever they
are do absolutely nothing, no matter which button I used to click
them.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

blender-2.49b-9.fc14.i686

How reproducible:

Always.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run blender.
2. Press space bar or Shift+A.
3.
  
Actual results:

Nothing happens.

Expected results:

Menu should open.

Additional info:

Makes it next to impossible to use Blender for anything.

Key bindings in general appear to be working.  eg. I can use
R to rotate an object.

This works for me on F-13 x86_64 despite I need to have the mouse in the space view in order to have it to work.

So far, only the viewport shading (z shortcut) seems to have effects without needing the mouse in the space view.
Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2010-07-30 08:16:32 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 14 development cycle.
Changing version to '14'.

More information and reason for this action is here:

Comment 3 Richard W.M. Jones 2010-08-10 11:42:55 EDT
Following the suggestion here:
  http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/slackware-14/intalled-blender-runs-ok-but-no-menus-visible-786260/
I set the following variable which fixed the problem:
  export BLENDER_FORCE_SWAPBUFFERS=1

So I'm forced to conclude this is some sort of X.org /
GLX / driver issue.

Reassigning to X.org component.

Comment 7 Richard W.M. Jones 2010-08-10 13:11:34 EDT
Sorry everyone, false alarm.  I have rechecked this after
updating my X.org to Rawhide, and it now works without
requiring the environment variable.  Therefore I am
closing this bug.
