A few problems with Slicer 4.13

I know you are in a big process of upgrading Slicer with VTK9 in particular, and some runtime problems can be expected. Just reporting what I found so far on Arch Linux / Qt 5.15.1.

Factory built Slicer

  1. Only Slicer appearence themes are proposed in Application Settings, and not system themes like Breeze and Oxygen.

  2. 2D slice views are black empty.

Home built Slicer

  1. 2D slice views are black empty.

  2. Rotating 3D view with left mouse button down changes window state from maximized to ‘restored’ without rotating the view. When left mouse button is released, moving around the mouse rotates the view. Please see attached screen capture.

In both cases, no particular error messages are in console or python console. In case it might be useful :

This line appears in console when trying to move around the 3D view :

QGestureManager::deliverEvent: could not find the target for gesture

“Slicer” uses default color palette that we get from Qt, while “Dark Slicer” and “Light Slicer” are color palettes defined by Slicer. Qt capabilities for getting colors from system theme are different depending on the operating system and we also need to do some overrides for colors that don’t make sense. As Qt improves dark mode support on all operating systems, Slicer will improve, too.

Yes, we know about this - https://github.com/Slicer/Slicer/issues/5220

What Qt version do you use? Linux requires very latest Qt (5.15.1), as Wayland support in previous versions was very buggy.

I’m indeed using Qt 5.15.1.
I must add that this 3D view rotating issue described above is observed in KDE X11 only. The view rotates normally in KDE Wayland, and the main window is not restored.

Probably a few X11 bugs were introduced as they fixed the Wayland bugs. Probably these errors will be fixed in upcoming patch releases. What is interesting that the problem does not occur with the official build. Can you copy-paste here the application log of running Slicer that you have built?

I’m afraid I need some precision here.
Do you refer to console stdout messages ? Error log in Slicer UI (Ctrl+0) ? Some other source of messages ?

I mean the same log for your custom-built Slicer, as you posted before for the installed Slicer (available from menu: Help / Report a bug).

Here is the log from ‘Help/Report a bug’ after loading CTA-Cardio, Volume Rendering, moving the 3D view and closing the scene.

On one previous run, I had this in console, can’t remember what I did exactly.

An OpenGL Core Profile was requested, but it is not supported on the current platform. Falling back to a non-Core profile. Note that this might cause rendering issues.

vtkDebugLeaks has found no leaks.

The warnings look harmless. The OpenGL core profile complaint is somewhat surprising. Try to use compatibility profile (set SLICER_OPENGL_PROFILE=compatibility) and see if it makes any difference.

No better luck with either no, core and compatibility. I won’t waste your time further as it’s custom built. It may well get fixed unintentionally next. 4.11 will still run on Arch until ICU libs get upgraded here. Thanks.

I could trace the 3D rotation issue to the selected Appearance Style.

System Breeze and Oxygen styles trigger the window resize to ‘restored’.
System QtCurve does not misbehave.
The 3 Slicer styles do not misbehave.

Switching to Slicer Dark, and hoping the 2D view issue gets fixed soon.

Thanks for your consideration.

thanks all for the info
