I just installed Linux Mint and Xojo 2020r1.2 on an old computer. The Run button for the debugger is grayed out, but the Build button works. I downloaded the Debian version of Xojo and double clicked it to install. I copied my project binary file and set its permissions to read/write. Is there something else I need to do?
hover over the run button and it should show a tooltip with information
The tooltip simply says “Runs your project using the debugger.” Not much help. I am wondering if part of Xojo did not get installed.
Aha, i’d expect it to tell you why it’s greyed out.
Probably a missing library? Do you have “libunwind8” installed?
The Run button can be disabled if there is an active debugger but the IDE hasn’t talked to the app yet.
I have used the IDE to make changes and saved them. The Run button remains grayed out. libunwind8 is installed.
I reinstalled Xojo then loaded one of the examples. The Run button was enabled. I loaded the project I developed on Windows and transferred to the Linux machine and the Run button is disabled.
Is “This Computer” checked?
Found the problem. Under the Build Settings, Architecture was set to ARM 32-bit instead if x86 64-bit. I had built it for an rPi, but couldn’t get Remote Debugger to work. Didn’t think about the architecture. Thanks for your help.
