Electron Bugs - Any Ideas? (Axolotl)
#1
Hello there,

Axolotl is currently using Electron 15 as frontend and there are some bugs, which are a bit odd and I would like to ask, if anyone here has some experience with Electron and could provide some help.

1. Web links are opened in Axolotl instead of browser
https://github.com/nanu-c/axolotl/issues/538

2. Onscreen Keyboard not showing up
https://github.com/nanu-c/axolotl/issues/582

3. Input of certain letters not possible
https://github.com/nanu-c/axolotl/issues/635

From my point of view, all three bugs are connected to the Electron-Axolotl relationship, but my skills in this field are limited...

So it would be awesome, if some clues could be found.

Thanks in advance!

I think this is probably a problem with the app itself and not Electron. It shouldn't be difficult to fix in the code: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/3174...in-browser.

Those might be caused by recent Electron bugs. I've never used Axolotl and I don't know how to update its Electron version. You can try building from source, maybe it will automatically download the latest version before compiling.

Thanks for your answers!

Regarding 2. and 3.: The latest Electron release (v16.0.0) causes a bug on Wayland systems, but I will test a fixed future version to see, if there are improvements.

1.: Thanks for that link. Maybe one of the ideas fixes the Axolotl bug.

Have you tried latest 15.x?

Using 15.3.0 at the moment...

Looks like the Ozone Wayland backend is causing the letter bug - a user on github reported a similar thing using Chromium.

I tested Electron 15.3.0 without the backend and all the letters can be written...
