The known issues for FieldWorks on Linux are listed below. Please consult the bug tracker for details and workarounds.

Version 7.3.2~alpha5

  • Various random crashes.
  • Only the user who installed FLEx can use it (permissions).
  • Automatic keyboard switching with iBus keyboards is not fully implemented; need to release ibus keyboard manually.
  • Creating a new entry can become disabled; exiting FLEx and restarting should fix it.
  • It's possible to get in a state where checkboxes cannot be checked/unchecked (Find Example Sentence, Change Spelling, Assign Analyses). Select All/Unselect All still work.
  • Often FLEx crashes after attempting to use checkboxes that are not working.
  • Fields with typeahead (e.g. Semantic Domains, Lexical Relations) can experience a crash.
  • Items can be filtered though there is no indication of a filter.
  • After you have used FLEx for about 90 minutes, it becomes slower and more likely to crash. Restarting FLEx resets it.

Not implemented yet:

  • Send/Receive
  • Audio writing systems: record or add an existing sound file

Version 7.0.6

  • Automatic keyboard switching with iBus keyboards is not fully implemented; need to release ibus keyboard manually.
  • It's possible to get in a state where checkboxes cannot be checked/unchecked
