[Debichem-devel] Bug#865085: avogadro: doesn't display molecules

Package: avogadro
Version: 1.2.0-1+b1
Severity: serious
Justification: package is useless

Dear Maintainer,

Avogadro in stretch appears to be unable to display any molecules. It only
displays the background colour fill. Picking any molecule should be enough
to reproduce this:

$ avogadro /usr/share/avogadro/fragments/alkanes/hexane.cml


$ avogadro

   File → Import → Fetch by chemical name → hexane

The debug view shows that avogadro has imported the right number of atoms
and bonds, but nothing is displayed no matter what settings are chosen for
the viewer.

(checked across 3 computers including one on which avogadro had never been
installed before just in case it was a local config problem. Old discussions
on the avogadro development lists around such problems frequently implicate
compositing, but I this under Xvfb and various WMs and is, in any case, a
regression since jessie.)
