EDIT3 : this issue is known from the official dev team and this is why they recommend using GTK2 when running Modelio:

Using GTK3 leads to very very poor performance on my 3 machines (EDIT: and one of them is an AMD Ryzen 9 3950X with 64 Gb of RAM DDR4 and ASUS ROG Crosshair IV Formula motherboard, so definitely not a hardware issue. EDIT2: also, it runs fine on Windows). Modelio becomes totally unusable when I have a State Diagram with 16 states and about 30 transitions, which is not a lot. And the overall experience is really bad, UI is laggy.

Disabling the use of GTK3 using SWT_GTK3=0 enables the use of GTK2 instead, and performance becomes incredibly faster. Now I can finally use Modelio on Linux. However, after doing this tweak, when I double-click on any element in a diagram or even in the menu, I get this message:

org.eclipse.swt.SWTException: Failed to execute runnable (org.eclipse.swt.SWTError: No more handles because no underlying browser available.
   SWT on GTK 2.x detected. It is reccomended to use SWT on GTK 3.x and Webkit2 API.
Failed to execute runnable (org.eclipse.swt.SWTError: No more handles because no underlying browser available.
   SWT on GTK 2.x detected. It is reccomended to use SWT on GTK 3.x and Webkit2 API.

I fixed it by installing webkitgtk2 available in the AUR (be careful: not webkitgtk2-bin because this package is outdated and it won't fix the problem).

So as long as GTK3 totally kills the performance of Modelio, I think we should add webkitgtk2 as a required dependency. Please note that webkitgtk2 can take a while to compile on low end configurations, so it could be nice to get an update of the webkitgtk2-bin package from the maintainer and then add this pre-compiled package as a required dependency. I'm gonna ask him/her to update it if possible, but meanwhile I think it's a good thing to add webkitgtk2 as a dependency.

Hi @SuperITMan. Now it's working. Thank you so much!

Hello @yin I'm new maintainer of the package. Sorry for the inconvience, I made a mistake during my commit. It should be fixed now :-) Could you please confirm that it works ?

FYI I updated the package to version 4.0.1 based on @marcBarbier advices.

Kind regards, SuperITMan

Any plans to update to the last version?

I made a tiny mess of the git commits but the MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME issue is fixed now.

@whnr so sorry for the delay. Per your request, you're now added as co-maintainer.

whnr commented on 2019-07-03 13:08

@tkolo can you add me as co-maintainer? I'll likely be using this only once as well. But I can confirm the changes work and want to update this here.
