In UbuntuStudio 14.04, using the Ubuntu package for KeePass2 v2.25, it seems impossible to create a custom profile in password generator because it appears impossible to get cursor focus in the length of password field. And the small up and down arrows appear not to work.
In fact, tests prove that focus is achieved but the first three digits typed are hidden behind the up and down arrows.
The whole thing can be confirmed by placing focus in the length field, hitting delete a number of times and then hitting, say 2. Nothing will be displayed in the length field. Then select the preview tab, and you will see a page of sample passwords each with length 2.
Next time, hit delete several times to be sure nothing remains then enter say 23. Nothing will be visible in the length field. Preview will give you a series of 23 char passwords.
This is repeatable as long as you have the patience to continue.
I never had this problem in Windows but I have seen it twice in linux (Ubuntu desktop and UbuntuStudio). I first reported this problem on the help forum on 9th June but received no responses. The font size in the main window is also very small and does not respond to changes in system font size.
I updated my help post on 16th June after further testing showed where the problem resided. It must be related to the build parameters used to make the version used in Ubuntu.
Should this be fixed by Ubuntu or by KeePass2 teams ?
