[confirmed] mintUpload 3.3.3: Dialog window expanding

Postby Old Marcus on Fri Jun 19, 2009 11:29 am

Not sure if this is the fault of the window manager or of MintUpload itself, but occasionally when selecting a service other than default, the window expands diagonally so the bottom edge meets the bottom taskbar and the window is several times bigger than it was. It does not hinder with usage of the program, but it is annoying when it happens.

'apt install' can be used on Linux Mint as a shortcut for 'sudo apt-get install'. 'apt x' can be used for various other apt commands as well.

Hi, we currently do call a (built-in) resize routine after checking for the available space, which is triggered by selecting a new service, in order to display this additional information. It should however only shift the content by up to 3 lines of text depending on how much information is provided by the service, does the huge resize occur before or after this info is displayed. When you say occasionally, is there a specific sequence of events that causes this, or is it something that only occurs occasionally. Can you reproduce this in a fresh system e.g. liveCD or VM? Can you post a screenshot of it, just to be clear of what it's doing?

It's a hard one to reproduce as it happens completely randomly. It doesn't happen when you select the default option as far as I know though, only custom services. I'll get a screenshot when I next see it happen.

That's what mine did. So it's a gtk bug then?

Well, maybe, I only said that because the way it calls the resize is to ask gtk how big it should be, then use that size. I then thought it could have been a gtk update, but the last one was 17th May for a theming engine, so I'll look into it, see if it's fixable, you can track the progress here: http://github.com/emorrp1/mintupload/issues/#issue/42
