CCS: Editor window problem on Linux

Tool/software: Code Composer Studio


I have experienced an issue with my install of CCS9.1.0.00010_linux-x64. When I try to edit code the editor window glitches and is unusable (screenshot below). I have now also installed CCS8.3.1.00004_linux-x64 and I do not have the same problem with the editor window.


Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 16.04.5 LTS
Release: 16.04
Codename: xenial



Editor window glitches when editing and is unusable.

After opening and before editing:

After editing:

If I used the cursor to move through the file line by line or I save the file the glitch goes away. This is not really practical for me.


I just installed and the editor window seems to work as expected

Many thanks


  • Hi Adam,

    This is a known issue that is related to bug CCSIDE-3576. It has been verified on Ubuntu 14 and Ubuntu 16, though it does not occur on Ubuntu 18. It will be fixed in CCSv9.2.0. You can workaround the issue by using the eclipse launcher instead of the CCS launcher. To launch CCS with the eclipse launcher, open a terminal and browse to <CCS INSTALL DIR>/ccs/eclipse. Then run the "eclipse" executable in that directory.
