Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1252480
"new game" button disappears when not run in gnome 3 desktop
Last modified: 2015-08-22 18:50:00 EDT
Description of problem:
When run in the "normal" gnome 3 desktop environment there is a "new game" button with a little circular arrow icon in the top left of the menu bar area in the swell-foop app. There is also the totally insane mac-like menu up in the common gnome 3 menu bar four miles away from the actual app window (the primary reason I always hated macs and now hate gnome 3 as well :-).
When run in a non-gnome 3 environment with a sane window manager the toolkit apparently places the application menu button directly on top of the "new game" button, so now there is no way to get a new game started within the app.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.run swell-foop outside of a gnome 3 desktop.
no new game button
new game button
Thanks, but you could be more specific than "sane". Which desktop environment is that so that we can try to reproduce it...
And its probably a good idea to report these upstream...
I'm pretty sure any desktop not named "gnome 3" will show the same behavior. I use fvwm, I've seen someone say the same thing happens in kde.
I cannot reproduce. App menu is supposed to appear to the left of the new game button (and does for me).
(Unfortunately the blocks don't fill the entire clutter view in this case; there is a wedge of black on the edge of the screen. But this is an unrelated bug.)

Do you mean this ?

Yep, the the circular arrow is gone and the application menu button is where it used to be.

I saw that too, but weirdly it only seems to happen on the first run, subsequent runs fill in the blocks OK.

This fixes it for me here. The patch is against master but should apply to gnome-3-16

This is how it looks with the fix applied
Looks good to me!
Aha, so it was previously hidden intentionally because New Game was in the app menu. But as of 3.16 it's not anymore . I would rather not add it back, so this patch is the best approach; thanks Yanko! Please push to master and gnome-3-16.
Pushed to both master and gnome-3-16
any plans for a release on 3-16 or should we do the bodhi update dance just with this patch.
I did a new upstream release. Yanko, do you want to handle the Fedora update?
