Re: [tlaplus] Issues with seeing error trace and enabling Deadlock setting

Do you know which of the Gnome themes make the check mark in the Deadlock button visible?

I can see that check mark, but only when the TLA+ theme is Dark (which is not ideal, because then the values in the states presented in the Error Trace are very hard to see).

Hi Varun,

please use a recent nightly build [1] to get the fix for the missing
error-trace [2].

As to the Deadlock button, this appears to be an incompatibility with
(some of) the Gnome themes in Ubuntu 20.04. The visual difference
between a button being checked and unchecked is minimal. Unfortunately,
we don't have a workaround or fix yet.
