Unless an Octave developer can reproduce, we don't have a way to debug this issue.  Dmitri does run Fedora and he could not recreate problem.

Hello, good afternoon. I have already tested on x11 xorg and the issue doesn't happens. It only happens in wayland fedora. In another distros I hadn't tested. I have uploaded a video to my gdrive explaining how to reproduce.

Can anyone explain exactly how I might try to reproduce this problem?  On my system, I see


$ ps axuww | grep -i wayland
jwe       115361  0.0  0.0 162388  5888 tty2     Ssl+ 14:03   0:00 /usr/libexec/gdm-wayland-session env GNOME_SHELL_SESSION_MODE=ubuntu /usr/bin/gnome-session --session=ubuntu
jwe       115876  0.2  0.4 1331644 79160 ?       Sl   14:03   0:00 /usr/bin/Xwayland :0 -rootless -noreset -accessx -core -auth /run/user/1000/.mutter-Xwaylandauth.VCH1K2 -listen 4 -listen 5 -displayfd 6 -initfd 7


Does that mean I am using Wayland in the way that is meant in this report?

I normally run Octave builds across an ssh connection (ssh -X to a remote system, run Octave there and display on the Ubuntu system that is running Xwayland).  But if it might matter, I can try to build a copy of Octave that will run locally on my Ubuntu system.

Also if it matters, the version of Xwayland on my system is


$ Xwayland -version
The X.Org Foundation Xwayland Version 22.1.1 (12201001)
X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0


Also, Octave itself doesn't really do anything directly with X/Xorg/Xwayland.  So it seems likely to me that any issues with those components are likely to be either problems with libraries used by Octave (Qt or other libraries) or bugs in Xwayland itself, not bugs in Octave.

files are size limited.  (not sure what the size is). if you can reduce size or post elsewhere and link here that may work better.

If we think this way we will need to use octave forever in obsolete systems. Sorry but I can´t agree, and also, I will record my screen and put a video attached here.

I found Wayland to be too buggy to be usable and normally use Xorg. For this specific problem I re-login to Wayland.
I cannot reproduce the problem.

It leads to lots strange behaviors. For example, when the process begins to spend lots of cpu, if I change de octave's tab from Command Window to another, like documentation or even minimize the window, the process will get back to normal, and, when I maximize or got back no Command Window tab, it starts to consum lots of cpu again.

You need to verify the process. It will start to consumn lots of cpu.

Here is my system specification as attached image.

Im already using a us keyboard: English(US Intl. with dead keys). If you are not on a wayland session, using gnome 45 you will not be able to reproduce.

I cannot reproduce this on Fedora 39 with neither self-compiled octave 9.1 (Qt6) nor with distro-provided 8.4.0 (Qt5) (from "updates-testing"). This is with US keyboard and LANG settings.

Perhaps you are using a non-US keyboard and "^" mapped to some control sequence that Wayland misinterprets?

Hello, good afternoon

I'm tracking this issue almost a year or two.
In qt gui, under linux x64, wayland and gnome, the Command Window starts a process that consums 100% cpu of a thead. To trigger this issue, you only need to type the character '^' in Command window. This is very annoying and takes lots of cpu overheating and making the fans work hard.

the versions I tracked this issue was octave 8.4.0, 9.1.0.
kernel version - 6.7.9-200.fc39.x86_64

Tryed installed by flathub and by compiling from the sources.
