Re: Sweet Home 3D 6.5
I installed beta1 on OpenSUSE Linux Tumbleweed 20210222. It seems to work fine. I had to edit the startup script to cope with (a) HiDPI/4K monitors, and (b) Linux Nvidia proprietary drivers:

-Dcom.eteks.sweethome3d.resolutionScale=2.0
-Dcom.eteks.sweethome3d.j3d.useOffScreen3DView=true


I tried a couple of fairly complex models, everything seem to load OK, looks OK, and modifies OK. A couple of the plugins I've contributed still seem to work too.

Would it be possible to detect the useOffScreen3DView situation and automatically correct it? Or could you perhaps at least produce a message with a link to some help. On Googling, I noticed the issue seems to pop up from time to time in various Linux forums when people try SH3D, many of the postings never got answered satisfactorily.
