DropList bug with XMonad window manager [message #42296] Wed, 05 March 2014 19:57 Go to next message

I use XMonad (a tiling WM) on Ubuntu 13.10 + Mate (Gnome2).

DropList widgets do not render correctly: when the down arrow is pressed, I can see the option list blinking and disappearing. That's a rendering issue: if I release the mouse button where the option is supposed to be, its value get selected.

Ready to investigate further but I have no clue what I can do ?

Cheers,
Victor

Are you using X11 or GTK backend?

GTK is now default...

Well, does it work some gtk based apps?

I have been using xmonad for several years (gnome 2) and haven't seen such an issue in any application.

Well, pehaps the next logical step is to compile with X11 flag (that will switch off GTK backend and activate X11).

I did recompile theIDE both for X11 and GTK, the behavior is not really different:

- The DropLists in the menu bar (build method & build config) do work on both X11 & GTK versions

- The DropLists **inside** the build method dialog do work as describe in my first message: the options are not shown. Here GTK and X11 behave a little bit different: with GTK I can see the option furtively at start and the selected value would change if the mouse button is released where the option is supposed to be while on X11 and can not even see a blink and there is no "ghost" option list.

If a create a GUI application with only a DropList it would work.

I really this is related to XMonad, I'll test it with an other WM.
