GUI Text display issues in Mint 15 KDE

Postby SkepticalTech on Sat Aug 10, 2013 4:19 pm

I installed Mint 15 KDE RC some time ago, and, while loving it, I have a few strange issues.

The first thing I noticed was that the Synaptic package manager's textbox for search is missing

Secondly, in many of the system dialogs, it appears that the box around the groups is cut off:

Lastly, in Eclipse, I noticed some of the text labels are also cut off:

Are these related? Anyone else notice this? It is really annoying.

(Sorry for posting these as links, but I need the full size to show the issue.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Still on Olivia RC? Why not upgrading to the current final release instead of dealing with (and trying to fix) a pre-release testing version.

1. The searchbox in Synaptic is there for me just fine.

2. The group boxes are meant to look that way in the Oxygen style. If you don't like that, use a different style. The QtCurve style works great for me.

3. That's something Eclipse has to fix. Report the bug there so they know about it and can fix it.

Yes, That's Oxigen. But AFAIK only for small laptop monitor screens. Never noticed that in bigger monitors.

Sorry for the late reply.

I have done a full package upgrade, as well as updated the kernal to 3.9, so I am a little disinclined to redo everything (I had to do some annoying things to get my optimus graphics working).

Funny thing is that I used Oxygen in 14 with no trouble.

No such issues with Oxygen here. They look right and complete.
