Subject: bug#195: Polkit auth window too long From: Julius Henry Marx <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: email@example.com Date: Mon, 26 Mar 2018 14:36:21 -0300 Package: policykit-1 Version: 0.105-9+devuan1 This is in a default (out of the box) and up-to-date installation of Devuan Jesse: [code] groucho@devuan:~$ uname -a Linux devuan 3.16.0-5-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.51-3+deb8u1 (2018-01-08) x86_64 GNU/Linux groucho@devuan:~$ [/code] Problem: When I open SPM (synaptic) to check that everything is as it should be, the polkit pop-up auth window that comes up is huge (very long), taking up roughly 28.5cm in length while being only 6.0 cm high. This is in a 19" monitor running at 1280*1024. I'd expect a smaller (ie: shorter) image with a 2:1 ratio, like in other distributions with polkit pop-ups. If I open up a terminal, open SPM to see the polkit pop-up auth window and then run xprop in the terminal+click on the pop-up, I get this information wrt the open window: [code] WM_NORMAL_HINTS(WM_SIZE_HINTS): program specified minimum size: 973 by 175 <----- min window size program specified maximum size: 973 by 175 <----- max window size program specified base size: 0 by 0 window gravity: NorthWest [/code] Observe that the min/max window size is roughly the same proportion as the window measured on-screen. Now, if I do the same in my PCLinux/MATE rig, that part of the xprop data is different *and* does not have the problem my Devuan/Xfce rig has: [code] WM_NORMAL_HINTS(WM_SIZE_HINTS): program specified minimum size: 416 by 209 program specified maximum size: 416 by 209 program specified base size: 0 by 0 window gravity: NorthWest [/code] Please let me know if there's any other data you need. Apparently there was a similar issue in the MX-17 distro which was 'tricky' to fix but have not been able to find any other related info. If at all possible, I'd appreciate knowing how-to-fix-this as long as it does not involve recompiling the package. =^D Thanks in advance, A.
