Tool/software: Code Composer Studio
I'm experiencing enormous flickering when of the UI in CCS Version: 9.2.0.00013 on Linux, Ubuntu 18.04 LTS with KDE as DE.The UI flickers rapidly when the mouse cursor in moved, and in about 1 Hz when the mouse cursor stays still.
It happens when I open the ROV or the Resource Explorer. In the resource explorer less quickly, in the ROV usually after clicking 1-3 elements.
The ROV or Resource explorer don't flicker, but the rest of the UI does.
If you need any more details, let me know.
Can you try the below workaround:
Open a terminal and type:
> export SWT_GTK3
then (in the terminal), browse to <CCS9 INSTALL DIR>/ccs/eclipse and run ./ccstudio
Check to see if the issue still exists or not.

In reply to Ki:
Just following up with you to see if you had a chance to try the proposed workaround
with setting eclipse to use GTK3, the ROV seems to work normally and does not introduce flickering anymore. The Resource explorer on the other hand still makes the GUI flicker.
But having the ROV working already helps me a lot. I can open the resource explorer in the browser as well.
Thank you very much already!
In reply to Johannes Wechsler:
Actually, I meant to say:
> export SWT_GTK3=0
I forgot the part about explicitly setting it to 0. But I think both ways do the same thing. At least that is the behavior I see.
I'm not sure why the workaround works for ROV but not ReX. It should apply to both.
