gtk3 dialogs are completely missing

Postby kerryhall » 2016-12-08 21:25

Hi folks,

I used to have an issue with gtk3 dialogs getting "stuck", ie, they show up on one monitor and I can't resize or move.

I recently added a 4k monitor to my deskop, and now these dialogs are missing entirely. I can see them listed in the "taskbar" but as gtk3 windows can't be moved, I can't use fluxbox "nudge" to try and move them around to attempt to locate!

How do I disable gtk3 style dialogs? (ie, transmission save dialog, evince, firefox save dialog, etc)

Running fluxbox as my window manager.

Thanks!

Any thoughts on this?

Currently unable to download files via firefox due to this issue, among many other problems.

Thanks!

if you use something else than fluxbox?
what sort of troubleshooting did you do, what did it show?
how did you set up your dual monitors? and fluxbox?

That is a good idea I haven't tried yet, using a window manager other than fluxbox.

I've messed around with xmonad a bit, let me try and see if that one has the same problems.

Thanks!!

Tried using xmonad but it doesn't support switching workspaces at the same time on all monitors (which gnome2 and fluxbox both can do) so that is out.

awesomewm is buggy and can't autostart any applications, so it's out. (but the awesomewm package for debian is over 4 years old)

I have tried logging out and logging back in with fluxbox, and it resolves the gtk3 style dialog issue temporarily (maybe for an hour or so) Randomly though, the system reverts back to the "dialogs are stuck and can't be resized or moved" issue.

What should I try next?

Thanks!
