2017.3 Install - I am unable to resize the Xilinx Information Center (XiC) window when opened from running in background

Description

After a Vivado or SDAccel installation I can see that the Xilinx Information Center (XIC) process remains active (running) in the background. 

It is represented by a small icon on the screen.

If I open the XIC by double-clicking on the icon, I see that the opened XIC dialog box is not resizable.

As a result all action buttons located on the right of the XIC window are hidden.

Solution

This issue has been seen on CentOS 6.8 and CentOS 7.2.

In order to correctly use XIC in this case, you will need to open the non resizable window, then exit it, and after that restart XIC.

The procedure to achieve this depends on the CentOS version you use.


CentOS 6.8:

  1. Double click on the XIC icon - this will open the XIC non resizable dialog box
  2. Run Exit from the File menu
  3. Reopen XIC by running <path>/xic/xic command from the terminal


CentOS 7.2:

  1. Run the <path>/xic/xic command from the terminal - it will open the XIC non-resizable window.
  2. Run Exit from the File menu
  3. Reopen XIC by running <path>/xic/xic command from the terminal
