I'm trying 0.7.7 on Ubuntu 12.04 32 bit. The big problem is that I'm not able to properly connect various parts (resistors, leds and IC for istance) on the breadboard.
With 0.6.3 this connection works great and, in fact, when I put a part onto the breadboard its pins become blue along with the nearest breadboard holes. Once hooked the parts on the breadboard, green lines show the electrical connection path. This behavious is not present on 0.7.7.
When the part is near to the breadboard holes, its pins don't become blue anymore and the part is not hooked properly in them; finally the green electrical paths are absent.
Is there a workaround?
Thank you in advance,
This sounds very messed up--I just checked under Linux 10.04, and the breadboard highlighting works properly. Was this a downloaded version, or did you build it yourself? If the former, I would consider clearing your cache and downloading again; make sure you are downloading the 32-bit (or 64-bit) release as appropriate, and that you are launching Fritzing from the "Fritzing" script found at the top level of the installation folder.
it was a fresh downloaded version. The 32 bit version still doesn't work properly here.
Tried the 64 bit (always ubuntu 12.04) all works fine.
Maybe it's worth to know that my 32 bit ubuntu is virtualized. By the way the 0.6.3 on the 32 bit vrtualized ubuntu was installed through apt-get.
Finally I tried to download the tar.bz2 archive again, with no luck.
I also found out and i reported it in another thread
It seems that the breadboard itself is slightly off grid placed when creating a new project
When the breadboard is properly alingned to the 0,1" grid the components places correctly
Strange little bug.
Thanks! This issue still shows up in version 0.9.1 and moving the breadboard to align with the grid works like a charm.
