VokoscreenNG 3.8.0 vs 3.7.0

VokoscreenNG 3.8.0 does not work in Fedora 38 but 3.7.0 does. After many deletes and reinstalls of 3.8.0i had to go back to 3.7.0 which works perfetly as it did previously before their update was created. 3.8.0 will not even come up to display user GUI.

vokoscreenNG version 3.8 was pushed to stable repository without anyone leaving positive feedback on that build, see https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2023-55c4450ade and https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/?packages=vokoscreenNG&release=f38.

I think it would be good to file a bug report and let the maintainers have a look at the issue.
Follow Log in to Red Hat Bugzilla.

It would also be good to start vokoscreenNG from command line and collect any messages/warning/errors that may appear. Also have a look at the logs and see if it prints anything useful there.

Are you on a wayland or x11 session? Is vokoscreenNG supposed to work in either of the two?

I can replicate the issue in an X11 session, so I helped you out by filing a bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2245370. Subscribe to the bug for updates from the maintainer.
