Referring to comments in here, I'm looking for a solution to the font issue in the Icon Editor.
Selecting different fonts does not seem to change the font in the Icon Editor, specifically in the Icon Text tab input.
I've had no luck playing with the Tools=>Options=>Environment=>Linux=>Use pixel-based font sizes, it seems like whatever I select, the font won't change at all.
This leads me to believe the issue is with the icon editor and the way it loads the fonts in Linux. I know that it works in Windows, but in Linux it seems as if the Icon Editor always defaults to a same font.
It does change, but for the worse if I select any of the builtin(?) fonts, LabVIEW Application / LabVIEW Dialog / LabVIEW System - in the Icon Editor Properties.
I've tried most of everything I found from internet plus then some. I've rebuilt the font cache, copied the small fonts .ttf file from windows etc. so I'm thinking the easy fixes are already exhausted.
Environment: LabVIEW 2016 on OpenSUSE Leap 42.3.
So, looking for help in LAVA forums for this.

I'm starting to use LabVIEW 2020 Sp1 on OpenSuse 15 and the event structure editor - I mean the dialog to add / edit handled event - seems to have localization issues.
Also, a difference from Windows LV, if a constant is connected to the timeout terminal, LV requires that you handle the timeout event... weird.
Is it normal / known to have these "issues"?

In a few days my team and me will start a project and I'm a little anxious because I've never work with PXI Systems... If anyone want to tell me a tip, recommendation or something about your experience with this systems, you'll welcome. I'm one of the developers in the crew!.
I've experience with cRIO and cDAQ.
We're about to re-structure our VI source tree and therefore I'm looking for a way to automatically edit/change the VI icons as well. To do so, I want to open all VI's and change the icon text as well as add a new icon layer (on top) and then save this VI (perhaps also rename it, move it to another location ...) The only problem I have - I can (with help of Icon editor API) open the existing VI, get the icon data (separate entries for text, different layers, ...) and adjust them to new informations/texts/icon layers. But it is not possible to write back these changes to existing VI, I can only create a new VI with this data. Or I can overwrite any old icon settings by passing a new icon, loosing all different icon layers and separate texts.
Is there any way to edit an existing VI Icon without loosing the existing icon texts/layers? I even tried to open the original icon editor via script and do the edits with "SendInput" remote control of it's user interface. But didn't find a way to open the icon editor on first hand :-(
So any ideas highly appreciated!
I am developing the application for Linux using LabVIEW For Linux under openSUSE 12.1 & 11.4 versions.
My application would be a stand alone application running on the system.
What I want to achieve is :-
a). An application which would serve the tasks defined by user and will do that tasks continuously. Here this system with LabVIEW application will be acting as the Server.
b). Another application which would act as user interface to client for configuring the tasks & this tasks will be sent to Server System as mentioned in point no. a. Here the LabVIEW application will be acting as User Interface Client.
Now my Questions are:-
1. What is the bare minimum requirement by the LabVIEW application from the Linux OS to run the LabVIEW application without interface or X window in Linux or the LaBVIEW application in the console format in Linux.
2. What is the bare minimum requirement by the LabVIEW application from Linux OS to run the LabVIEW application with LabVIEW GUI interface.
In above both system is not considered as for development, considered as only for deployment point of view. Development System will be different.
Please give your valuable suggestions or help or guidance if anyone has done this before.
Thanks & Regards.
