Cannot see desk after login

The last line of the documentation here


To view the full developer options, you must be logged in as the “Administrator” user. You also will need to enable the Developer icon in your desktop settings:

Desk -> User dropdown list -> Set Desktop Icons -> check "Developer"

I am trying to create a new app and when I login to the new site it shows

I am not sure where the setting is to be done.

and second I am not able to view the Desk with the modules in it. As seen in the image, content of one the modules is shown by default.

Any pointers please

Try to restart the bench and clear cache

Did that several times

Also tried bench build and then bench migrate but to no avail.

Is that the screen one is supposed to see after first login or there should be a desktop screen that should be shown first

What is the UI you’re hoping for to be greeted by post-setup? What you’ve posted is the standard Frappe desk

Something like this

Based on the tutorial here

You see there is a show hide cards options there as well. I never get to see this screen.

Additionally, is the following link supposed to show something ?

I get a complete blank

The UI you’ve posted earlier correct. It was updated for the next version 13. If you’re develop/version-13 beta branch you’ll get the interface like that.

The one posted here is of the previous version 12.

I got the same problem

Thank you for your mail.
I am not trying to install ERPNext. I plan to use the frappe framework to develop another app.

Please help me with a few doubts.

  1. How do I update my bench. When I try to use
    bench update
    it complains that
    Cannot proceed with update: You have local changes in app “MYAPP” that are not committed.

    Here are your choices:

    1. Merge the MYAPP app manually with “git pull” / “git pull --rebase” and fix conflicts.
    2. Temporarily remove your changes with “git stash” or discard them completely
      with “bench update --reset” or for individual repositries “git reset --hard”
    3. If your changes are helpful for others, send in a pull request via GitHub and
      wait for them to be merged in the core.

since my custom app (MYAPP) is obviously not part of frappe git repo, how does one go ahead

  1. I understand that frappe is closely intertwined with ERPNext but does running this
    git clone bench-repo
    installs the dev version of master version of bench.

  2. As per your reply did you mean to say that a v13 of frappe (I thought it was erp version) is installed and it does not show you card decks when you first login. The modules are only on sidebar.

  3. I have not been able to add my custom modules to the sidebar. My shows the list clearly.
    I have cleared cache and run
    bench build
    bench migrate
    quite a few times

Any pointers towards documentation will also be very useful

Thanks Kenneth

I got most of my answers from your reply in another thread.

First, running bench version and not bench --version showed me the version of frappe along with bench and it v13

With that and your replies in the link below I knew what needed to be done.

I can see modules and can add shortcuts to them. Add good and clear.

One last question remains. What is the best way to update bench in such circumstances. I cant use bench update for reasons mentioned above.

You might be on version 13. Check my last post … if you had same problems as mine I have them almost resolved
