Anki doesn't display certain buttons and card contents on linux window managers

Hey so I am running arch linux with linux kernel 5.17.1-arch1-1 and installed anki through the AUR package anki-official-binary-bundle anki version: 2.1.49.

Anki itself starts but it only shows the buttons File edit tools, … and doesn’t render any other buttons / cards when I want to study decks.

I can login to ankiweb by pressing the y shortcut for sync (and probably also the other shortcuts), but when I click study deck (’/’ shortcut) then it doesn’t display anything to me :confused:

I am running i3 with xorg via startx and I have already tried the following:
run anki with environment variable QT_AUTO_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTOR=0
run with environment variable ANKI_NOGHIHDPI=1

Maybe anyone has the same issue? Thanks for any help :slight_smile:

This might allow the webviews to load:

I have the same issue on the official packaged build for 2.1.49 and this flag solves the issue.


It’s mentioned on Blank Main Window - Anki Manual
