Cannot see no more

this morning I realized that I do not see any more molecules in Avogadro 1.2.0. It is only the black background, the molecule is there cause I can see properties and so on
Could it be some particular windows update or something?


right sorry needed to reset display

Apart from the exceptional amusement I got from this tread, I must admit that 1.2.0 is broken. I cannot use it on Linux, neither as a native app, nor in Wine.

@Iamkaant To what (possibly repackaged) version do you refer to? Based on Debian’s package tracker, do you refer to 1.2.0-4 shipping as in old-stable, or 1.95.1-2 as e.g., in Debian testing (at present, that would be Debian 12/bookworm)? Or, maybe, one from the repositories of an elder Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, 20.04 LTS?

I was trying to use avogadro 1.2.0-6 from Arch User Repository. It is dependent on some old libs, which do not seem to work anymore.
On the other hand, I found the solution for Wine installation: just add LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1 before the actual command.
