Using the GTK+ Skin, once JPasswords times out and minimizes, trying to access it again causes the security password check pop-up box to appear, but the pop-up box is blank (no text at all). Sometimes I can simply click on it and type my password (blindly) and JPasswords will open and sometimes it will not.

I have not experienced this behavior in the Metal skin.

OS is Ubuntu 8.04
Init Modus = Portable
Java.runtime.version = 1.6.0_07-b06
Java.vendor = Sun
OS.arch = i386
os.version = 2.6.24-21-generic

    Also found with all skins when JPasswords is minimized and locked, entering the password in the Password Security Check pop-up does not allow JPassword to be restored to the desk top. You can see JPasswords in the task bar/panel, but it won't open. You need to right click and select close and then re-launch JPasswords to use it again.

     
  • I am currently not in the position to verify or test the program under Linux OS because Linux just doesn't work for me and I'm not prepared to spend endless futile hours with it (any more). I'ld be happy to see somebody in the developer list who might be able to contribute to Linux system verification.

    If the problem is limited to GTK look-and-feel then I can say that this skin has proven bad before and JPasswords is not to make responsible for it. Please report to the developers of this skin.

    Wolfgang, sorry to hear you are have problems with Linux. I think that problem I am having may be related to running compiz-fusion. I find when running JPasswords on a plain Ubuntu install on VirtualBox the product seems to work fine including the GTK skin.

    I really am finding the product helpful. Thanks!!

    I am setting this to "CLOSED" as the problem appears to be a bug with Java and Swing apps. I had the same behavior in another Java/Swing app and found a resolution in the Ubuntu Forms at: http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-362821.html

    Basically, to resolve this issue I added the following line:
    export AWT_TOOLKIT="MToolkit"

    To the end of this file:
    /etc/profiles

    Thanks again for the great product!!
