I am running Gentoo Linux amd64, and are trying to use the Webpack 12.3.
All apps apart from PlanAhead appear to load and run correctly, but Planahead appears to fail to render.
Starting it from a project, I get the splash screen, and the window opens along with any errors (eg. unable to locate black box model), but the actual window appears to be blank.
This is not the case, because right clicking in certain locations reveals a context menu, and I am even able to "drag out" some of the boxes into their own windows - at which point they become visible.
Any ideas on why the main window appears to not render, but individual items will when made separate floating entities?
I have already looked in the running log - last message is launching gui.
I have already tried re-installing the whole suite, and clearing my .Xilinx folder, but no to avail.
Solved! Go to Solution.

what Java JRM are you using? Unlike ISE and its associated tools, PlanAhead is completely Java-based and needs to have an up-to-date Java installed.

Well I do some Java development, so I have multiple on my machine.
Using eselect to set system/user as each of the following yields the same result of a splash screen, but a blank main screen.
icedtea6-bin - version 126.96.36.199
sun-jdk-1.6 - version 188.8.131.52
sun-jre-bin-1.6 - version
184.108.40.206 220.127.116.11 has same issue too.

It appears that this problem is a re-manifestation of the Java bug (which was meant to have been fixed in an early version of Java 1.6) with many WMs and it mis-reading some of X's properties.
The fix is to change to use MToolkit by running: export AWT_TOOLKIT="MToolkit" first. You can then run the 32bit version of planAhead correctly.
The interesting bit is that if I then try to run the 64bit version of planAhead with this fix, it crashes yielding:
## An unexpected error has occurred (11)#Stack:/opt/Xilinx/12.3/ISE_DS/PlanAhead/tps/l
