pgAdmin3 @1.18.1_1 UI problems

Port: pgAdmin3


The pgAdmin3 port user interface seems to have some drawing issues. The worst problem is missing text in some windows, such as the "Guru Hints" window. You can see this trying to connect to a server which is not listening on the configured port: a completely blank Guru Hint window will appear. I installed this port on two different computers and the outcome is the same.

I then downloaded pgAdmin3 v. 1.18.1 from its website and the application works as expected.

Version: 2.3.0

The upstream application is bundled with wxWidgets 2.8.0. I'm almost sure that this is the reason for problems. MacPorts links against wxWidgets 3.0 and there is no way to link against 2.8 unless if you are happy to use GTK. If I am right, you should file bug reports upstream, asking for better support for wxWidgets 3.0. There is not much that the macports developers/maintainers can do about it.

(You could try to link pgAdmin from MacPorts against wxWidgets 2.8, but you can only do that if you have wxWidgets 2.8 installed on your mac. wxWidgets 2.8 can only be built from source on 10.6 or earlier or on 10.7 with SDK for 10.6.)

Thank you very much mojca.

I'll file a bug report upstream, as you suggest.

Did you manage to report the bug upstream? If so, can you please post a link to the upstream ticket?

Hi mojca,

PgAdmin3 has no public but tracker AFAIK ( so I've sent them an email on the support mailing list ( but I received no answer. I'll try to ping them again on the same subject.

Is this still a problem with the current version (1.22.2)?
