off screen display - Openbox
« le: 13 août 2013 à 22:51:27 »
Hi,

I have an old openbox which is fully updated and I use the lxpanel with
it.    Recently the tooltips go off the screen on top when the lxpanel is
on the top.     Can't see more than the lower part of them.

Can't imagine what adjustment is needed.   An OpenBox configuration
adjustment ?    Any ideas ?

THX

I see you've posted the question at LinuxQuestions. Can you show a screenshot of the Panel Preferences window with the Geometry tab open?

Has the panel always been at the top of the screen?

Hi,

Everything is set at 1024x600 and the panel has been top
and bottom, has been deleted and recreated also.    Odd
problem when other Openbox's don't do that.

regards,

patrick

Yeah, I tried moving the lxpanel to the top in DebWeb, but the tooltips look normal. I can make out that your panel width is 100%, but I can't tell what the # of pixels is for height and icon size. What are the values? Do all the tooltips get cut off, or just some?

What are the desktop margins in obconf set to?

The margins I just set to 1, the height is 30, icon size is 28, lxpanel goes
off screen but Keepass in the tray stays OK.    Gkrellm on the desktop
goes off screen.      Must have picked up a bug someplace.

Patrick,

Let us know what you come up with. I think gkrellm can be dragged back into place. Not sure about the lxpanel settings, though. I really didn't think the pixel sizes were relevant to the tooltip placements, but though I'd ask anyway. You'll probably find a solution.

I think it just picked up a bug someplace, only Openbox that does it.

Hi,

I don't even know which distro/flavor you are using (Scorpio maybe?)

Would you provide the output of "xrandr" and "uname -a" please?

It's a PCL Openbox full from 2011-2012.

Everything works fine except the info pop-ups on lxpanel
and thw weather info pop-up on gkrellm.

Thanks for taking a look.                              8)

What you call info popups are the info you get on hover?

What do you get in the file ~/.xsession-errors ?

Yes, anything in the system tray, the info goes up off the screen
instead of appearing below the panel on the screen.

I tested in mini version in vbox. Here is what I get:

I must say the system is not fully up to date, only lxpanel is and all it's depends, openbox openbox-menu and so on.

The xsession-error message from your system which says about "ObRender-Message: Unable to parse color '#6e6e6e  # #404040'" is not quite usual. Anyhow I don't have it. What about the gtk theme you are using? Do you have the theme and theme engine which fit together?

Well put the lxpanel on the top and test, info should appear below the
panel on the screen, yours is on the bottom showing upward like it
should.

Tried several themes, icon themes, everything but mouse cursor
which I will try tonight.    Something in here Bonsai doesn't have or
just a bug I guess.

thanks for taking a look then.

@Melodie

The problem was big-cursor.pcf.tar.gz which is a cursor font.
Switched to crystalblue and the text is now OK.

But, on Bonsai it works without a problem.    Don't know about
Scorpio or LXDE for that yet.   

Maybe one of the config files had something else in it.    I'll just
use big-cursor.pcf on Bonsai then.

Oh well.

Patrick

Very good, happy you solved it, though I don't know about these cursor font things. What is a cursor font ? I use cursor themes usually.
