Description Matthias Clasen 2006-10-20 00:09:08 UTC
The preferences dialog of virt-manager is an override-redirect window
(doesn't get window decorations). It should be a regular dialog.

Comment 1 Matthias Clasen 2006-10-20 00:10:46 UTC
This is with virt-manager-0.2.3-3.el5

Comment 2 Daniel Berrange 2006-10-20 10:53:42 UTC
This is very odd, I've seen this lack of decorations every now & then too - the
glade file is clearly showing it as a regular dialog:

<widget class="GtkDialog" id="vmm-preferences">
  <property name="visible">True</property>
  <property name="title" translatable="yes">Virtual Machine Manager
Preferences</property>
  <property name="type">GTK_WINDOW_TOPLEVEL</property>
  <property name="window_position">GTK_WIN_POS_NONE</property>
  <property name="modal">False</property>
  <property name="resizable">True</property>
  <property name="destroy_with_parent">False</property>
  <property name="decorated">True</property>
  <property name="skip_taskbar_hint">False</property>
  <property name="skip_pager_hint">False</property>
  <property name="type_hint">GDK_WINDOW_TYPE_HINT_DIALOG</property>
  <property name="gravity">GDK_GRAVITY_NORTH_WEST</property>
  <property name="focus_on_map">True</property>


Testing again now, about 1-in-3 times, when initially displaying the window
after launching the application it doesn't get any decorations. Closing &
re-openning the window, the decorations are fine.

Comment 5 Hugh Brock 2007-06-18 17:03:36 UTC
This is fixed in virt-manager-0.4.0, and should therefore wind up fixed in RHEL
5.1 as well.

Comment 6 Hugh Brock 2007-06-18 20:07:06 UTC
fixed in 0.4.0-1.el5, to be precise...
