Mouse click on menu doesn't work

0 votes
Hi, I'm using yEd 3.13 on Linux Mint 17 with Java 1.8.0_11.

If I click on a menu bar voice, the menu appear but it will close when I release the mouse button. Furthermore, I cannot select any voice on the opened menu.

Using the keyboard, the menu works fine.

Is that also the case with the latest Oracle Java 7?

I haven't tried with java 7, I have downloaded the "yEd installer script for 64-bit Linux. Either chmod +x first, or execute using sh. Includes a suitable Java 8 JRE", so I've found Java 8 included... I'll try to run it with Java 7


I see. To run yEd with Java 7, do the following:

  1. Install Oracle Java 7. I recommend the *.tar.gz archive since that will not register any plug-ins or mess up your PATH or whatever. Also, uninstalling is as simple as
      rm -rf <java_installation_directory>
  2. Run yEd with
      /path/to/<java_installation_directory>/bin/java -jar /path/to/<yed_installation_directory>/yed.jar
Used jre1.7.0_71, same results... now I'm using Dia -.-'
