[GNC] No Maximise button on 3.3 in Ubuntu 18.10

Colin Law
Running Gnucash 3.3 in Ubuntu 18.10 Beta from the Ubuntu repository
there is no maximise button, and the window will not maximise by the
usual shortcut methods.  Has anyone else seen anything similar?
Should I file a bug under the Ubuntu system or gnucash?

Re: [GNC] No Maximise button on 3.3 in Ubuntu 18.10

Roger Miskowicz
Seems ok in Build ID: git 3.3-5-g820cd842f+ (2018-10-06) on Ubuntu 18.04
which you may have already tried.  I have not installed 18.10 yet.  Is it
there for other applications or with Alt-Space?

Window [size] management (maximize,minimize,resize, etc.) is a function of the
window manager (duh). Can you maximise any other application windows under
Ubuntu 18.10 Beta?

It *might* be an issue with the GUI toolkit gnucash is using or *possibly* a
gnucash bug in how gnucash is using that GUI toolkit.

Re: [GNC] No Maximise button on 3.3 in Ubuntu 18.10

Colin Law
Sorry, I should have said that all other apps I have tried operate as expected.

Alt-Space does not show Maximise.  It does show Unmaximise but it is greyed out.

However I have had a Eureka moment.  There seems to be a change with
3.3 to do with window width. On 2.9 the window (when not maximised)
could be shrunk down so that the right hand fields of the register
were not visible, and a scroll bar then appeared at the bottom of the
register.  With 3.3 it appears this is not possible, the window can
not be shrunk to the point where a scroll bar appears.  I have my tabs
shown down the right hand side and the result is that the smallest
window size is slightly larger than the size of my screen.  In that
state it is not possible to maximise the window.  If I place the tabs
at the top then it is possible to maximise.  I can then place them at
the side again and it stays maximised but if I close and re-open
gnucash then it unmaximises again.

This may also have been an issue happened when I built 3.3 from source
on Ubuntu 18.04 to test it, I don't know. I may just not have noticed
it then.

Re: [GNC] No Maximise button on 3.3 in Ubuntu 18.10

Roger Miskowicz
I tried what I think you said in 18.04 and 3.35 can not shrink to where
there is a horizontal scroll bar.  The Maximize '+' button is there
regardless whether the tabs are at the top or right side.

Just to ensure we're talking about the same button.  In Xubuntu 18.04 I
don't have the Maximize button as displayed by Alt-Touch instead at the top
right I just have '-+x' which seems to be what I have in all my
applications.  The '+' toggles maximize or not maximize.

Re: [GNC] No Maximise button on 3.3 in Ubuntu 18.10

Colin Law
I am using standard Ubuntu not Xubuntu, so there are normally the
usual Close, Minimise and Maximise buttons in the window title bar.
The maximise is a white square.

I was not entirely accurate in my last post.  I have the Ubuntu Dock
bar down the left hand side and not auto hidden which reduces the
available window width slightly.  If I put the dock at the bottom of
the screen then it is possible to see the whole gnucash window width
and the maximise is available again.  I guess something is noticing
that there is not room for the minimum window width when maximised so
it won't let it maximise.  It is a 1280 width screen so the minimum
window width that gnucash will let me shrink the window to, with the
tabs at the side, is about 1200 pixels.

Re: [GNC] No Maximise button on 3.3 in Ubuntu 18.10

Colin,

Can you manually resize GC as if you used the maximize button? How does the window behave? (scrollbars?)

Adrien

I can resize it except that I cannot shrink the width down
sufficiently small that it will fit in the available space when
maximised.  Unlike with 2.19, scroll bars do not appear below the
register when an attempt is made to shrink the window further, it just
won't allow further shrinking.

Re: [GNC] No Maximise button on 3.3 in Ubuntu 18.10

Colin Law
Right, I have made some progress on this.
1. At any time gnucash seems to maintain a minimum window width below which
it will not let the window be shrunk.
2. If that width is greater than the available display width then the
window cannot be maximised, which is reasonable.

The problem is that the min window width is not a fixed value, but seems to
vary with which accounts are open.  If I close all tabs except the Accounts
tab and shrink the window down and then open an account the window width
increases to the minimum allowed for that account. If I repeat that
exercise for different accounts it is clear that different accounts have
different minimum widths.  The net result is that if I have certain
accounts open then I cannot maximise the window, but if those accounts are
not open then I can.

I have so far failed to find any pattern relating the minimum width for an
account to the details of that account.

My feeling at the moment is that there is a bug (or at least non-optimum
feature) in the code that determines the minimum width.  If it is not a bug
then I would be grateful if someone can explain what is going on.

Re: [GNC] No Maximise button on 3.3 in Ubuntu 18.10

Colin Law
Yet more information.  I don't think the basic behaviour has changed since
2.6.19, the difference is that the minimum window width is now up to about
350 pixels wider than it was on 2.6.19.  So on 2.6.19 with a particular set
of accounts open this is about 1000 pixels which fitted on the screen ok
and so could be maximised, with 3.3 it is about 1350, which is wider than
the available width.

Re: [GNC] No Maximise button on 3.3 in Ubuntu 18.10

Colin,

Does the entire window width depend on on the current width of columns
other than the description column?

Re: [GNC] No Maximise button on 3.3 in Ubuntu 18.10

Not as far as I can see.  Changing the column width can make the scroll
bars come and go but does not change the minimum width.  Also the min width
does not depend on which account currently has the focus, but which
accounts are open (ie have tabs visible).  I am doing these tests with the
tabs along the top so it is not the account name length pushing up the
width at the side.  Also it is not the number of accounts open that changes
the width but which particular ones.  There is one particular account that
pushes the width up about 50 pixels but I can't see anything special about
it.

Re: [GNC] No Maximise button on 3.3 in Ubuntu 18.10

Adrien Monteleone-2
Out of curiosity, is the parent type of that errant account different from the others? Does opening another account of that type have the same effect?

Re: [GNC] No Maximise button on 3.3 in Ubuntu 18.10

Jim Passmore
I can confirm similar behavior as Colin, running Ubuntu 18.04.1, Gnome
3.28.2 with a 1920x1080 monitor resolution.  My GnuCash is 3.3+, compiled a
few days ago.  Before this I was just running the 2.6.19 from the
distribution.

I noticed that when I used the super-right arrow shortcut to snap to the
right side of the screen, nothing happens (similar with left shortcut).  I
had 3 tabs open--Accounts, and 2 others.  Also, dragging to the right
screen edge normally snaps the window and sets width to 50%, but not with
GnuCash.  Other apps behave as expected.

I've got a Gnome extension, Put Windows that uses a different keyboard
shortcut, and should set window width to be 50% 66%, then 34% with
consecutive snap-right commands.  it works for 50% and 66%, but not 34%.
(Other apps work at all 3 widths.)

If I close the account tabs, and leave just the account list open, all
behavior is correct--dragging to a screen edge snaps to 50%, super-right
snaps to 50%, and the extra extension adjusts the window to 50, 66, and
even 34%.  Experimenting with different open accounts indeed changes
allowed window widths.

(With 2.6.19, the regular Gnome shortcuts worked, but I didn't try the
extension until today, trying to investigate the problem.)
