JM BLANDIN reported a new bug.


IDE shows a busy cursor and doesn't allow executing any code on Android

Type             : Bug
Priority         : Medium
Gambas version   : Master
Product          : Development Environment


Contrary to version 3.14, last gambas version prevents from executing any code.

Version 3.14 is default version in Ubuntu 20.04.

In version 3.14, it shows an error when trying to execute example code about 3D opengl and that's normal because proot doesn't allow opengl.
On version 3.16 on the contrary it shows a busy cursor and it takes a very long time to show any error message.
Trying to exit IDE is impossible with no reaction.

In version 3.14 it was easy to execute minesweeper example except sound which was normal with termux.
Now with version 3.16 same as above instead of running normally.

System information

Ubuntu 20.04 on Termux Android.
AFAIK termux is the only way to have gambas on Android. 
installation of version 3.16 thanks to automated compilation tool from Bruce Steers.
Only workaround in termux is to remove libfprint-2-2.arm64.postinst in var/lib/dpkg/info
This is documented on termux github
