Underscores in filenames aren't showing in the "File"->"Recent Files" menu.

Looks like GTK is using underscores as indicators for accelerator keys.

Present in a build of ddf67a8586 from master branch.

    Git 3522e8 works for me and nothing since should change that.

    Geany INFO : GTK 2.24.20, GLib 2.38.1

    What GTK and glib version is Geany using? See help->debug messages line 3.

    Works here too for Gtk3 build. It might just be an issue with padding or margins or something in a particular theme. Does it do that in other GTK+ themes?

    GTK 2.24.20
    GLib 2.38.1

    Ubuntu 13.10

    I've attached an image of what the menu is rendering as.

     
  • Hehe, the Ubuntu global menu thingie… I'm ready to bet it's this thing's fault. Please try to run Geany avoiding this global menu, and see if you still experience the issue:

    $ UBUNTU_MENUPROXY= geany -v

    Without the Ubuntu menu proxy, file names are displaying correctly.

    I suppose this isn't a Geany bug, then?

     
  • No, it's yet another bug of that global Ubuntu menu. You may want to report this to them
