First of all, thank you for creating such a good app. I am one of your paid Iris customers.

Sadly, I found two problems with your latest version:

Bug #1: When choosing the "Overlay" type, a red full-screen with no alpha covers up everything. I had to log in using the terminal then kill the Iris process manually which was a very painful procedure. Iris startup with the computer so I had to delete Iris and its configuration files from the terminal as well to make my computer usable again.

Bug #2: I am using a 4K monitor and Iris settings window looks extremely small with a very tiny font.

My System Settings:

  • OS: Kubuntu 17.04 zesty
  • Kernel: x86_64 Linux 4.10.0-24-generic
  • Resolution: 3840x2160
  • DE: KDE5
  • WM: KWin
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-6500 CPU @ 3.6GHz
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 1050 Ti
  • RAM: 5785MiB / 15979MiB

Your help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I removed the Overlay for Linux. It was working fine on Ubuntu, but maybe it's not that important.

The latest version also has 4K UI with bigger UI.

Please give the new version a try ( :)


The response was slow, because I needed time to fix the issues and there were a lot of problems for Windows
