Description schlaffi 2013-05-21 17:35:50 EDT
Description of problem:

If the workspace switcher is displayed in a panel in deskbar mode, the workspaces appear with flipped aspect ratio 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a panel in deskbar mode (Display->General->Mode->Deskbar)
2. add a Workspace Switcher with #rows < #workspaces
3. open properties for workspace switcher or restart xfce4

Actual results:
Workspaces have flipped aspect ratio (while the windows positions are correct), see first screenshot.

Expected results:
What I get in vertical mode, see second screenshot.

Additional info:
If I change to vertical mode, then all texts are flipped by 90°.

I guess it is the same bug as ubuntu launchpad #1076291.

Possibly related to https://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=7656 

Would you be willing to file this upstream?

Indeed that look quite like the same bug.

I commented on that also on upstream, but note, that it is fixed libwnck-2.31 (one has, however to recompile xfce4-panel). I just checked that.

I do not know, why fedora (and other distros) stick with linwnck-2.30. Is it that 2.31 is not a stable release? Unfortunately, the next stable version is libwnck-3.0.

No idea. I filed bug 967372 to ask it get updated. 

There's only the one fix for this issue in it that I see... so really it shouldn't be a major deal.
Comment 6 Kevin Fenzi 2013-12-02 14:58:07 EST
ok. I've updated libwnck in rawhide and rebuilt panel. 

I am really not sure it's a good idea to try and update stable releases for this. I guess if there's 0 issues in rawhide we could look at doing so. 

I'm going to close this now. If you want to push for stable release updates too, feel free to reopen and convince me. ;)

I cannot really test this. And of course it is only a cosmetic thing. So I am not pushing. But thanks for the action.
