So i've booted into a completely different fresh LinuxMint drive right now
that's only ever had gambas 3.15.90 on it.
Getting all the same problems.
I'm compiling latest commit as we speak but before i started that i loaded
gambas and guess what , no right-click menu just like on the other OS
I'm guessing it's gambas as this is a different system with just 3.15.90 on
I have done make uninstall first.
./reconf-all --force to ensure full renewal.
If it's a problem with the gambas installation then it's a problem with the
way it's installed as i've not messed it about.

Well the guy who first wrote this post obviously has similar issues.
I completely understand Ben, have had to track a few bugs in my own
software that i could not reproduce myself. not an easy task and i feel for
you fella.

All i can do is give what information i can about it and hopefully a
problem will be noticed in the code sometime.

Okay,,, it's now compiled and installed..
Fresh LinuxMint 20 hardly anything installed on it
Gambas version 3.15.90 pure (none of my patches, a separate gambas-master
clone download folder grom gitlab/gambas/gambas. nothing to do with me)
./reconf-all --force used

I load the IDe and no right click menu.
I used the search box a couple of times and the IDE locked up.
ALL the same issues i have on the other system.
Sorry but i really do not think it's a problem my end.
Perhaps you could partition a drive and install a clean mint on it and
compile the latest gambas on it ?
as i have just done for you.
Then maybe you will be able to reproduce the errors?

attached is an image of what happened when i used the search box twice , it
worked okay first time.

Thank you Ben.
