I tested a little more.
Sparta form designer is broken for both GTK2 and QT.
I used FPC trunk but I guess it makes no difference. Manjaro Linux + KDE.

With an empty form the designer just does nothing. It does not react
to mouse clicks even when a component from palette is selected. The
component remains selected in palette.

Then I tested with a form with many components.
With GTK2 the designer stays empty. The IDE still works otherwise.
With QT the IDE freezes. An empty editor shows an hourglass. The
process must be killed.

What more, testing an empty form with QT, the designer shows up
initially when Lazarus starts. Normally the editor is shown initially.
I remember a similar bug was fixed a long time ago (> a year).
