One way of debugging this is to set:


in your shell before launching Glade. It will print out a mass of info on the plugins its trying to load, and any errors found.

btw Glade runs quite well on Windows 10 using a bash shell - the latest win10 version supports Ubuntu 16.04. You need an X server like Xming running on Windows for the graphics to work.]]>

I tried to install glade on Windows 7 64bit machine but I'm getting the following error.
Initially it asked for some missing dll files which we added to relevant system folders after which its giving us the error as
"The application was unable to start correctly(0xc000007b). Click OK to close the application"

<![CDATA[Numerical format problem]]> the problem seems to be solved with this workaround.

Thank you!

<![CDATA[Numerical format problem]]>
export LC_ALL=C

before running Glade, as a temporary workaround.

For some reason the locale default is not set, which is a bit odd, as I fixed this for a similar problem about a year ago. I can only assume the fix was not properly checked in... I'll try and put this in the 4.5.17 release.]]>

<![CDATA[Numerical format problem]]> I have installed glade in linux mint 18 and 17.1, and in both versions I have the same problem. Glade doesn't seem to recognize the '.' as the separator for the decimal part; it recognizes the ',' character.

Since I am in Spain, I am working with the Spanish keyboard layout, but I have setup the OS so that the numerical format recognizes '.' as the decimal separator character. Other applications, such as OpenOffice, work fine and recognize the '.' character.

This is a problem when I load the example.tch file that comes with glade because any of the numerical values inside the file is properly read.

Does anyone has a similar problem? Is this configurable in any way from glade?

Thanks and regards

See for more details.

The only solution is to uninstall the Dell Backup and Recovery software until Dell can fix the problem.

<![CDATA[Netlist driven layout]]>
The flow requires PCells for each device in the netlist e.g. MOS P/N devices, resistors, capacitors etc. The PCells need pin shapes e.g. poly/diffusion pins for S/G/D/B nodes. Examples can be found in the distribution.

The Tools->Netlist View menu opens a text window, and from this you can open a netlist. The netlist is shown in this window, with syntax highlighting. It can be edited here if required, saved etc. But also you can use the 'Gen Layout' menu item to create a layout cellView containing the instances from the netlist and their connectivity. Instances are placed purely in clusters according to device type; they can then be manually moved. With the Selction Options 'Show Connectivity' option enabled, flightlines are shown between device pins.

Cross-probing and cross-selection between the netlist and layout is possible, either for instances, nets or devices. M factor MOS devices are supported (again the distribution contains an example netlist featuring devices with w/l/m parameters).

Manual routing has been enhanced so that with the cursor over an instance pin, the starting/ending point is snapped to the pin centre and takes the layer of the pin, and the net the pin is connected to.

Various other capabilities will be added in future, as will documentation on using this flow.
