Description Gene Czarcinski 2002-06-17 12:14:14 EDT
Description of Problem:
Gnome initially comes up with a very small (thin) panel and the geyes_applet
appears to scale properly to this size.  However, when the panel is resized to a
more reasonable size ("48"), geyes does not scale.

Release 7.3.91

Too-small panel is fixed, geyes issue forwarded upstream here:

Will get the geyes fix if it's fixed upstream.
Comment 2 Gene Czarcinski 2002-08-18 17:05:19 EDT
I have relooked at this problem and believe it may be a redhat configuration
"problem" (undesireable feature) rather than a true bug in geyes.

It turns out that geyes CAN be resized. However, the current default is
"default-tiny".  Changing this to "default" give a proper size for the 48 panel.

If you feel strongly that this is an upstream problem, close it and I won't
fight it.  Just trying to make the final product look better.
Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2002-08-18 17:54:12 EDT
When you talk about "default-tiny" and "default" where are you seeing that setting?

I don't think we have any Red Hat specific geyes patches, afaik.
Comment 4 Gene Czarcinski 2002-08-18 20:04:45 EDT
Bute maybe you should.

Changing geyes properties to a "laeger" size resulted in a visual OK.
Comment 5 Gene Czarcinski 2002-08-19 15:03:38 EDT
It may be that you believe that it will be more confusing if the panel does not
reduce when a user chooses a small panel size such as 36 pixels.  That may be
true but I believe that the small geyes is even more confusing.
Comment 6 Havoc Pennington 2002-08-19 15:21:17 EDT
Oh, I see what you mean now. It has themes and each theme is a fixed size.

Given this setup, the small size is the right default IMO as growing the panel
is worse than not filling it IMO.

Changing the basic premise of the setup is something I'd like to see done
upstream rather than on the Red Hat level. So basically the upstream bug is the
right place 
to get this fixed.

That works for me.
