Summary0000038: funny qt graphical artifact in preferences screen
DescriptionThis is really not important at all because it is only esthetic, the functionning is not affected. But I noticed since a couple of days that the modules buttons on the preference screen now appear "scrambled"... (see attached screenshot).

I think I didn't change anything special on my system, so thought maybe one of you would have an idea...

I'm not totally sure it's a freecad bug, so if it looks irrelevant to you, don't hesitate to close this bug ok? I just thought maybe one of you would immediately know what this is...

TagsNo tags attached.

For me everything is OK. And to be honest I don't really understand what's wrong with your preferences icons.

BTW, do you have a modified FreeCAD version running as you have another application icon than the default one?

Yes, you are right, my screenshot was bad. Look at this new one... It happens easier if I open/close the pref window a couple of times.
But really I don't know if it's freecad or something else causing it.

About the app icon, it's this one:
What do you think of it?

OK, this clearly shows the issue. I opened the dialog many times but it always worked for me. What is your current OS? Still Ubuntu or Debian testing?

Yes, the application looks quite nice. IMO we could replace the old one.

Yes, debian testing (I falled in love with debian :)

Then it's probably specific on my system. I really must test a bit more, I'll look at the code and try to make another small app with same kind of button. Let's keep this issue open until I find out more, okay? I assigned it to myself...

I tried building a small pyqt application that uses exactly the same widgets and icons as the preference screen, but everything works absolutely normally. I'll do one more test then if I have no more idea I'll close this bug, since nobody else has that problem.

On my Debian testing system I have exactly the same problem. The funny thing is when redirecting the display to a remote X server everything seems to work fine.

Could you please share the pyqt test application with me so that can I see if it works for me, too?

Sure, here it goes (see latest attachment)
It's a simple dialog with a ListWidget where you can add icons. The definition of the listwidget is copied from the FreeCAD preference dialog ui file...

Thanks, Yorik. It's fixed in 2739.
