Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 444668
with desktop effect enabled Evolution won't fit to 1024x768 screen
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:37 EDT
Description of problem:
If I have desktop effects enabled (I like these ...) Evolution won't fit into a
1024x768 screen (laptop display). The window is always slightly bigger than the
screen. Even worse every time you click with the mouse somewhere in evolution
the windows moves slightly to the left or right.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
every time, also in FC8
Steps to Reproduce:
1. enable destop effects with resolution 1024x768
2. open Evolution
3. click somewhere
Ev. should fit into screen
Intel 855GM Graphics Device
Reassigning to compiz (I guess).
Well, I don't know why, but now it seems to be just fine. The last few updates
shouldn't do have to do anything about as far I can see *wondering, but not
complaining* In FC8 this drove me crazy.

... it is to early in the morning and I pushed my luck to far, sorry. Same thing
again. I don't get it. I GUESS after a dozen times minimizing and maximizing the
Evolution window it will fit into screen.
Uuggh, as I have seen now this also occurs with desktop effects disabled. After
few clicks the windows fits into the screen. That's the difference between
compiz enabled and disabled.
