#432 monitor window fails to resize

User Interface

I am able to increase size of monitor window, but descreasing is not possible (both in X and Y directions).

    confirmed... the problem seems not to be that you generally can not make the window smaller (you actually can, unless you cross character boundaries) but that the VTE widget due to its size would not allow to further make the window smaller. some quick google foo didnt give me a solution for this unfortunately (but a couple ugly hacks... i really hope it can be done without another one =P)

    SourceForge changed the paths to all projects. So, you need to relocate the URLs in your working copies. You can see the new root URLs on the projects' code pages.

    i gave google a try once again and what i got suggest that VTE is kindof broken and everyone has these problems. urks.

    Sorry, never messed with this vte widget, fabbo?!

    Tried to submit this patch (which is a quick way to disable resizing)

    but got an error

    Maybe SVN write privileges revoked? Or (hopefully) something that can be solved?

  • Fabrizio Gennari

    OK, performed an svn relocate and committed the patch

    mmh not sure if thats what we want though.... i like being able to maximize the monitor window, for example :)

    how does eg gnome terminal do it? it can be resized no?

    The VTE-based never supported resizing iirc, but I'll dig up gnome-terminal's source code in search of inspiration

    r27972 almost fixes it in GTK2 too... except its broken in a hilarious way =) when you open the monitor, it will start resizing itself until the monitor window has its minimum size. however, once that happened, resizing the window in both ways works just fine - so almost there :)

    should be fixed in r27979, please test again

    Resizing in both directions seems to work now. Thanks a lot!
