Description of problem:
In current Fedora 24, the dark (large) title bar of the maximized window of gnome-boxes does not always fully cover that of the maximized window of certain other GNOME applications like gnome-terminal. The rounded corners appear to have different radii which becomes apparent when the window of the other GNOME application has a light (normal) title bar, see attached screenshot.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch gnome-terminal using the (default) light theme.
2. Maximize gnome-terminal.
3. Launch gnome-boxes.
4. Maximize gnome-boxes.
There appears a little white crescent around either the left or the right rounded corner of the title bar of gnome-boxes depending on whether gnome-boxes shows the thumbnail list of virtual machines or a virtual machine is running in the foreground.
The rounded corners of the title bar of GNOME applications have identical dimensions and the title bars of maximized application windows do overlap exactly.
- The issue is already present in Fedora 23.
- This issue seems to be visible every time when the window of a GNOME application with a dark (large) title bar like in the case of gnome-boxes or totem is placed over that of a GNOME application with a light (normal) title bar.
Tentatively reassigning to GTK+, which provides the theme we use for server-side decorations (like gnome-terminal), and is solely responsible for client-side decorations (like gnome-boxes).
Contrary to the initial report, this issue does -not- affect Fedora 23. It only emerged in the Fedora 24 development cycle.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 24 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 2 (two) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 24. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 24 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 24 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2017-08-08. Fedora 24 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
