The Preferences GUI dialog is unusable at 1280x800 (a standard laptop resolution). The Ok/Cancel buttons are hidden behind the Gnome taskbar so you can change your settings but you can't commit them. (I believe if I moved the taskbars would just barely show, but that's not really a very acceptable work around.) Rearranging the form to have more a 4:3 aspect ratio would fix this.

    I was going to post this bug, but since it's already here I'll post another workaround:
    Select a field and hit the TAB key a bunch of times until the selection goes of the screen. It will have selected 'apply' and then hit the spacebar. If you hit TAB one more time it selects 'cancel' so be careful ;-)

    Try applying the attached patch to gtkpod.glade file. The patch is against the latest version in CVS HEAD (you didn't specify which version of gtkpod you are running). In addition please remove the two lines in ~/.gtkpod/prefs starting with 'size_prefs'

    I'm planning on getting this patch into the next release.

    Cheers,

    JCS.

    The problem should be fixed in CVS. You may have the two lines in the prefs file specifying the last size of the prefs window as indicated below.

    JCS.

    Cool thanks for the fix, I used the diff file on v99.8. My g/f thanks you as well.

    Do you know if this fix will make it in the Ubuntu 7.04 repositories?

    Good to hear.

    Concerning Ubuntu -- no idea. My responsibility stops with releasing a new tarball.

    The fix is in CVS and will be in the next gtkpod release. It will make it to Ubuntu as well, but probably not as part of the 0.99.8 release. Unless you send the package maintainer a mail ;-)

    Cheers,

    JCS.
