As shown in the graph, there is a "File does not exist. Ignoring: IDE" warning message each time omnetpp is opened, which is a bit annoying, and I don't know why. Anyone knows how to solve this? Thanks.


OS: Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

OMNeT++ version: 5.1.

Do you start the IDE from the shell? The string "OMNeT++ IDE" is passed to the IDE as a window title and probably it tries to treat it as a file name (i.e. the second word IDE). You may look into the ide/omnetpp.ini file  and play around with the parameters. probably the string is not properly quoted?

I start the IDE from the launder. I put quotes around the "OMNeT++ IDE" (-name) in omnetpp.ini as suggested. Now the warning has disappeared. Thanks for the tip.

Strange. Those quotes are stripped from the name somewhere along the build process. The original IDE sources still contain the quotes but the final product does not. I will take a look and fix it for the next version.
