I am having issues with Manipulate in Mathematic 10.4.1 under Linux. Simple:

Manipulate[i, {i, 0, 10}]

Result in frozen frontend, in the end the Abort Dynamic dialog appears. If I press Abort, the front end get accessible again, however, sometimes I get the following further error:

The front end encountered an error while processing a "NotebookPredictions" packet.

I believe on Windows the Manipulate works fine. Can someone confirm this behaviour. It seems this question is similar, but that was for Mathematica 9, I cannot believe that Wolfram would keep so ignorant about such a major bug.


I am experiencing the same issue in Windows version as well and this is strange, I would swear that it used to work.

  • $\begingroup$ I don't have a problem with this (Mathematica V10.4.1 or V11.0.0, under Linux Mint 17.3) $\endgroup$ – mikado Aug 28 '16 at 21:02
  • $\begingroup$ You should set the increment of i as fourth component of list in Manipulate definition. $\endgroup$ – Rom38 Aug 29 '16 at 7:16
  • $\begingroup$ @Rom38 you don't have to. If you don't, it can have any value in the range. $\endgroup$ – Ruslan Aug 29 '16 at 14:41
  • $\begingroup$ There is really no problem with the syntax, I can simply copy an example from help and I have the same problem. $\endgroup$ – leosenko Aug 29 '16 at 19:44
  • $\begingroup$ In my case, Manipulate always produce the error-message when step is not defined. May be it appears because I use the counter for discrete data. But I guess, this is better to set the step in any case. $\endgroup$ – Rom38 Aug 30 '16 at 10:27
