Raspberry Pi: Using ofSystem() to Launch Another oF App



I’m trying to have ofSystem() launch another oF based application on the Raspberry Pi. What I’m trying to do is to create an application launcher for a suite of applications running on the Pi. It works fine if the application to be launched is not set to fullscreen or set to maximum resolution with ofSetWindowShape(), but if it is, the application loads and processing works (calling update, etc), but the screen flickers until the application is closed. The previous applications comes back and then it itself flickers. Should I add an issue on the github?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!


I figured it out. It’s not a bug or anything. And sorry for posting this in the wrong section of the forum.

I didn’t have enough memory allotted to the GPU. Thanks community!
