Screenshot showing the broken theme

Description of problem:
The icewm-clearlooks theme seems to be broken. At least I don't get a title in the border (see screenshot)

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

How reproducible:
Install the icewm-clearlooks package

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Icewm
2. Open a window

Actual results:
Broken window border

Expected results:
No broken window border

Additional info:
Fix propose:
mogrify -alpha off *.xpm 
in the theme directory to disable alpha layer in the xpm files (they are not necessary for this theme). Restart IceWM
So a simple repackaging with alpha off xpms should fix this issue

It's not the fault of the icewm-clearlooks package, but a bug in xorg-x11-server, see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=960663

However, the workaround to disable alpha layer in the xpm files is helpful, since it seems thta this bug won't be fixed soon.

Just for the record, what's your hardware configuration? (xorg driver, etc)

This issue also plagued my nVidia based machines. I solved the issue by increasing the size of several 1 pixel wide images to 2 pixels.
I'm thinking about generating an nVidia compatible icewm theme, as I doubt this issue will be solved by xorg-upstream or nVidia.

I can confirm the issue related to 1-pixel images, also on nvidia hardware.

I can confirm that resizing the images to 2 pixels solve the issue.

I've had a very similar issue years ago, in the Frets on Fire game:

I've had this issue with Gentoo running xorg-server 1.14.3-r2 and nvidia-drivers-319.60 on GeForce 8200:

The following commands auto-resize all 1-pixel images, fixing this issue:

find . -type f -name '*.xpm' -exec identify {} \; | egrep ' 1x' | sed 's/ XPM .*//' | while read f ; do convert "$f" -resize 200%x100%! "$f" ; done
find . -type f -name '*.xpm' -exec identify {} \; | egrep 'x1 ' | sed 's/ XPM .*//' | while read f ; do convert "$f" -resize 100%x200%! "$f" ; done
Comment 6 Denilson Figueiredo de Sá 2013-12-02 22:03:31 EST
Note: the command-lines I posted above are buggy.

'convert' will write the new file before 'find' has finished listing all the files, which means there is a racing condition that can let find re-read and re-list the same file again, which will make 'convert' re-convert it and re-write it to disk, and so on.

Adding "| sort" or "| tac" to the pipeline should fix this racing condition.

Alternatively, just read from one directory and write the fixed files into another one.

FWIW 1.3.8 package will include a second clearlooks-2px that, as the name suggests, uses a 2-pixel wide borders (more or less based on Denilson's suggestion).

Comment 9 Henry Jensen 2013-12-18 10:35:09 EST
Fedora 20 still affected. And it's not only clearlooks, but additionally the following themes where the problem occurs:

Comment 10 Gilboa Davara 2013-12-22 10:11:42 EST

I rather wait before posting a -2px versions of Infadel2 and icedesert - maybe this issue can be fixed upstream.
