On actual Manjaro XFCE (stable) VeraCrypt 1.25.9-3 issues repeated messages “An assertion failed” as soon as I start “creating a volume”. Before the last update such messages also appeared immediately upon “mounting a volume”. This is related to Español “Problema Veracrypt” (19.Jul.2022).
Message: An assertion failed!
/usr/src/debug/wxWidgets-3.2.0/src/common/sizer.cpp(2267): assert "CheckSizerFlags(!((flags) & (wxALIGN_RIGHT)))" failed in DoInsert(): wxALIGN_RIGHT will be ignored in this sizer: only vertical alignment flags can be used in horizontal sizers
DO NOT PANIC !!
If you're an end user running a program not developed by you, please ignore this message, it is harmless, and please try reporting the problem to the program developers.
You may also set WXSUPPRESS_SIZER_FLAGS_CHECK environment variable to suppress all such checks when running this program.
If you're the developer, simply remove this flag from your code to avoid getting this message. You can also call wxSizerFlags::DisableConsistencyChecks() to globally disable all such checks, but this is strongly not recommended.
 wxBoxSizer::DoInsert(unsigned long, wxSizerItem*)
 wxEvtHandler::ProcessEventIfMatchesId(wxEventTableEntryBase const&, wxEvtHandler*, wxEvent&)
 wxEntry(int&, wchar_t**)
As I am rather a user and not building Veracrypt, I’m trying to report: Like cfinnberg on the spanish thread I noticed that the initially appearing message pop-up did not appear any more after a Veracrypt package (community) update to 1.25.9-3.
Now I find that not only upon the first hit function “Mount” (where it meanwhile disappeared) but also on the second important “Create Volume” such a message is displayed.
Please, be more specific what I am to do: I see on a distinct package a message advising to notify the developers upon invocing function 1, after the update it’s gone, but appears upon starting function 2, which I had not tried before…
To me this looks as if something was already done on the Veracrypt package, but not all occurrences fixed. Do I need to write to the Veracrypt developer, or to the packer who provides the Manjaro package?
Sorry, it came as a gui pop-up window - providing a function “copy to clipboard” - I did not really have a clue how to present that. A screenshot from a full HD monitor easily could have gone beyond all borders… Your formatting is definitely more conclusive, thanks.
There is a bug filed for the archlinux veracrypt package pending it’s solution. If I look at the message that I got displayed, it tells me - the user - that I may ignore it, as the suggested solution is to disable certain checks, which trigger these messages.
The message dialogue itself offers a checkbox for disabling them for me.
In my case I don’t get any message when mounting (maybe it depends on the type of the volume being mounted), but I still get messages on volume creation and Select Device dialogs/buttons.
The developers haven’t still reacted to the bug report a month ago. From what I can see, the main developer has not made any commits or changes to the project from the end of March (and before that there were commits every few days).
So probably this is not going to get a solution soon if the packager doesn’t add patches without waiting for upstream.
He is referring to a post in the Spanish speaking forum part, where there is almost the same problem. It is not that the problem is related to the Spanish language somehow.
No, I don’t need it. I use only one volume and I don’t get any errors mounting it.
I’m sure that workaround works, but it’s a workaround, not a solution. The Veracrypt developers have to fix the source code so no workaround is needed. That is what I meant in my message, when talking about the solution.
