Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 961962
Oversized Item List Fails to Scroll
Last modified: 2015-02-18 08:53:33 EST
In MATE, when I open System->Preferences menu, the number of items is so large that they do not all fit on the screen, and without using keyboard, I cannot get to items that do not fit.
When I hover the mouse cursor over the arrow at the bottom of the list, the list scrolls down as expected, but when I move the cursor back up to get an item, the list resets as if it has not been scrolled.
Adjust your screen resolution.
Well before I say this is "not a bug" what is your screen resolution? And yor second sentence makes a valid point.
Not able to reproduce.

I am using 1920x1080 resolution, and the list of items in Preferences is large in part because I have multiple desktop environments installed. This bug is not about the list being large (though it would be nice if it was smaller), but about scrolling below the last visible item.
Hmm it could be the AMOUNT of items in that menu. But I just resized a VM to a tiny resolution and I was able to scroll back up. Can you let me know how many items are there, total?

There are 37 items in total. And when I try moving the mouse cursor back up, it immediately resets to "Qt3 Config" being the last visible item.
I just tested different themes, and reproducibility depends on the theme: The bug happens with Adwaita and Clearlooks but not in Clearlooks Compact or Aladelta (that is the scrolling is normal there). The difference appears to be that Clearlooks uses more vertical space per item than Clearlooks Compact.
How about traditional OK Test?

What is "traditional OK Test"?
A MATE theme. :)
TraditionalGreen, TraditionalOk, and TraditionalOkTest seem to work correctly. Also, sometimes it works correctly with all themes, but I have not been able to figure out the pattern.
Interesting. Yes I installed LXDE off a multilive CD and then MATE and I had 33 items in the list. When you can get the problem to happen again can you check .xsession-errors?
I do not have anything recent in ~/.xsession-errors. Also, for the last few days, the bug appeared consistently. One thing I noticed, however, is that the bug happens only with "Main Menu" (from the Add to Panel item list) and not with "Menu Bar".

Adwaita and Clearlooks aren't MATE themes.
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.
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 19 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 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 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.
