Trouble displaying themes
« on: February 18, 2023, 03:59:59 PM »
I was able to get AM up and running pretty well in Windows, but now I'm on Linux, and am having difficulties.  Attract mode runs, and launches games flawlessly; it's the appearance that leaves a little to be desired.

The only theme that displays properly is "Basic".  All others show the preview video on the whole screen, and a list of the games in VERY large font (see image).

What adjustments and where do I need to get these things to properly display?

I've updated my graphic card driver, and played around with the resolution (albeit in GUI, not through XRANDR).

Where to start troubleshooting?

The system:

16GiB System memory
Xeon E3-1200 v5/E3-1500 v5/6th Gen C
6th-10th Gen Core Processor PCIe Con
HD Graphics 530

UBUNTU 22.04
Attract mode V2.6.2
MAME 0.251

Any errors show up in the console window? It looks like maybe it can't find some kind of element for the layout.
