[Xubuntu] Issue with xed when saving files

Post by james-r »

I'm not using Mint at the moment but Xubuntu.
I prefer xed to Mousepad so I installed it on Xubuntu.

The issue is that when I save .js files, the file extension icon at the top left next to the file name reloads.
In doing so, the content of the window moves up and down.

You can see it in the .gif file in the attachment.
This doesn't happen with C files for instance, since they have a smaller icon in the top left.

How could this be fixed?
Can I make xed use the same icons for both C and JS files? I guess I would only need to know which folder xed is looking at.

If I was going to make a very first rough guess at this I'd say your icon theme isn't providing the icon in the size needed to show in xed's tab. It's a shot in the dark but I've seen things like this before.
When I give opinions, they are my own. Not necessarily those of any other Linux Mint developer or the Linux Mint project as a whole.

Thank you for the answer.
Any idea of how I could go about trying to fix this?
Ask you Ubuntu forums?
