Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 245443
White title bar and no decorations displayed for maximized windows with compiz
Last modified: 2009-01-09 02:08:52 EST
After I enabled "Desktop Effects" on my HP Omnibook 6100 (graphics card is a
Radeon Mobility M6 LY), maximized windows have always a white title bar and no
visible decorations (minimize, maximize, close buttons). However, the title bar
is drawn correctly if the window is not maximized.
Furthermore, the decorator buttons are still available but only invisible: The
tooltips still work and you can click them.
This seems to be an upstream issue as other distros have it too: See Ubuntu bug
A screenshot which looks exactly like my issue can be found here:
Using the workaround from bug 228644 (comment 3) by disabling
apps/gwd/use_metacity_theme in gconf brings the window decorations back. I did
not add my comment to bug 228644 as I only have the problem with maximized
windows and the reporter of that bug seems to experience the problem with all
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
These problems should be solved in todays rawhide build. Can you confirm?
Unfortunately, there are too many dependencies to rawhide so I can't install it
right now. Will try to get rawhide on the machine later.
Did you try F8? It should have everything what Rawhide had in August.
Unfortunately, my notebook broke down some time ago so I can't test this any
more. Thank you very much.
Oh well, thanks for letting us know.
This was a problem for me in F7 and continues to be one in F8.
I think this bug should be reopened but I lack the privileges to do so. Do I
need to write another bug? Help!
reopening as requested by Ross Tyler
Bumping affected version of Fedora to 8 as reported by Ross Tyler
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '8'.
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 prior to Fedora 8's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 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 please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
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.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 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.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
