DefIcons 53.11 Pattern Insertion Using Return or Enter causes extraneous "n" append (SOLVED PARTIAL)
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


See User information
1. Open DefIcons
2. Go to any filetype entry (with a "PATTERN" Actions")
3. Click on pattern and enter the text box
4. Make a modification
5. Move the cursor to the end of the pattern text and then press "Enter" or "Return"
6. Notice that the PATTERN has appended an "n" character

Let me guess, this is not happening for anyone else?

This could possibly explain why I also have to click on "OK" when I use SSHTerm to enter a password VS just entering the password and pressing enter otherwise I get an unauthentication error due to a bad password. Possibly I have a corrupt gadget?

Actually, for me DefIcons just seems totally broken. Even clicking on an existing pattern and then pressing enter results in garbage being appended to the final Action Pattern string.

Hi @rjd324

Same version of DefIcons as yours, I can not recreate this, and making a modification will work as expected.

Yes, works on my x1000 fine too.

Can you also test out SSHTerm with a password and press enter or return instead of pressing okay.

I am definitely thinking I have some corrput gadget somewhere. I think a fresh install will be worth doing anyway.

I was able to SSH to my Linux box by pressing return, it looks like you might really need a fresh system, you are poking arond it too much

This is a known issue that is exposed especially with Radeon RX graphics cards. There is a workaround for that. Do you have a Radeon RX card?

The workaround that might work for you is to run A-Eon's power prefs in your user-startup, so as to run on every boot.

i.e.
Sys:Enhancer/Prefs/Power QUIET

Feel free to change the path based on your system.

As Walkero has said above, it is a known bug in the system's string gadget. It affects Radeon RX users with a newer (> V1.12) RadeonRX.chip driver. The bug is likely a race condition that has been around for decades, and only recently was exposed by the driver now supplying data faster than the gadget expects. Hence the string corruption.

Okay, in that case I don't need to reinstall.

Presumably, @levellord doesn't see this on his or her X5000 because they are either not using an RX card, or using an RX card that is different to mine? I use a Sapphire 560RX. With the latest radeonhd and radeonrx.

But, what I would like is someone else to reproduce the issue I am seeing with my DefIcons. Can anyone else reproduce this just to rule out that it is not my system.

The only thing I can do is to actually hack the DefIcons.prefs binary file that is saved in ENV:,

or just copy over my X1000s....

@walkero
I will also try the power quiet hack but last time I tried that it didn't solve my SSHTerm pressing enter issue.

Yes I can perfectly reproduce it in DefIcons on my X5000 system. Exactly the same problem.

We have a new implementation of Deficons V54

Would you like to privately test it and see if it solves the problems you have with DefIcons V53 ?

@all

For your information, the bug also manifests itself in the 'media toolbox' when entering a disk name. After entering 'DH6', confirmed by a carriage return, it is displayed in the partition-list 'DH6n'. The solution proposed by walkero nevertheless works just as well...

What would be nice is at least read-only access to the bugs database, with of course ID numbers. And with any new release a reference to the ID numbers that have been fixed.

I fixed this bug in string.gadget almost six months ago (14.1.2022 according to the releasenotes). That a fixed version hasn't been released yet is a little frustrating TBH.
