Window position - 1.50 (Linux)

Post by crazytb » Sun Nov 16, 2003 7:26 pm

First of all, I use XnView 1.50 at Linux Slackware 9.0 with fluxbox 0.1.14 window manager.

Everytime I open XnView (by running "xnview" without parameters), it shows a small window at top-left corner. No problem. Then, I choose "Browse". The window is opened at correct size (I maximized it in another run of XnView), which is 1020x719 (add some pixels of window border and some pixels for fluxbox "taskbar"). :bug: The problem is that the window is not positioned at top-left corner (coordinates 0x0), as I like. So, there is some unused space above window (I can see my background) and the "taskbar" is covered by XnView window. :bug:

Maybe you need to install fluxbox or WindowMaker to reproduce this. I didn't tried to open XnView within TWM (only for test purposes, of course).

There is another bug! I'm at browser window, so I double-click (or press enter) at a thumbnail to view that picture. :bug: The view window is opened, but it is ALWAYS opened with top-left corner of window at center of screen. In other words, it is opened at position "490x280" (that isn't actually the center of screen). The problem is that ALWAYS I view a image, I need to move the window. I can't even click on "maximize" button, because it is off screen. :bug:

I hope you can reproduce these bugs.

That's quite a number of bugs. Pierre is currently working on the Unix/Linux version and I think that he'll address the major bugs, too.

Note:
If possible, place one bug per post. If you have several bugs (and you're pretty sure that these are bugs), you can mail them with a description on how to reproduce directly to Pierre. This will avoid spamming this board with too many bug reports.

But aren't these bugs all related to window positioning bug? Solving one and not solving the other isn't a good thing.

Actually, I posted two bugs, one about position of Browser window and another about position of Display window. I used the :bug: symbol to "enclose" the bugs, but I shouldn't have done this. Sorry.

Your post was o.k., is helpful and appreciated. I just wanted to make you and other people a bit aware that most readers are not so much interested in reading long bug lists. Also, replying to bug lists is difficult - threads might get very long or not replied at all. As written before: For reporting multiple bugs, a direct mail to Pierre is better.
