In an earlier post I talked about trying to modify the colour themes used by Zerynth Studio. As I was experimenting with changing things I had to shut down and restart Zerynth every few minutes. The first thin I noticed was that Zerynth was not deleting its singleton lock ~/.config/Zerynth/SingletonLock so I had to go in and manually delete it every time I wanted to restart Zerynth. After an hour or two my PC suddenly slowed down dramatically and I couldn’t start programs. I managed to get the system monitor up and saw that there were literally hundreds of Zerynth processes active. I killed them all and restarted Zerynth again, and had a look at the monitor. There were six Zerynth processes active, as per the screenshot.
So I shut down Zerynth again, and checked the monitor again.
There are still three Zerynth processes active, and they never go away. I’m guessing that may be why Zerynth is not deleting its lock file.
I started zerynth using the command line as I haven’t set up a menu item for the new version yet, and also to show the messages related to it. You can see that is has not terminated because the command prompt has not reappeared. And never does until I kill the three zerynth processes running.
I am closing Zerynth by hitting the “X” close button on the top right corner. I’ve tried using the Preferences->Quit option too, but the result is the same.
Have I got the setup wrong somehow? I downloaded the latest version (2.4.1) and extracted it into my Downloads folder, then ran it from there using the command line. I have version 2.4.0 installed in my /opt folder (/opt/zerynth-2.4.0) and set up a start menu item to start it (using the Cinnamon menu editor). Dunno if that had any significance though… Is there anything else I need to do or anything I can check?
