[Bug 1303462] Re: [Regression] Window titlebars placed behind panel
Attaching the debdiff for the Compiz Trusty SRU.
** Patch added: "compiz-trusty-sru.debdiff"
** Description changed:
Some windows that open from within another window such as a Firefox
popup window will be placed with the decorations under the Panel. Also,
some windows will just open with the decoration under the Panel such as
virt-manager. This can cause confusion for the user on how to move the
window and how to close it. This can be very disruptive to a user's
1. Install virt-manager.
2. Make sure no other windows are open.
3. Start virt-manager.
virt-manager should start in the top left. With this fix, the
decoration should be visible.
+ * Debdiff is found at
+ /compiz-trusty-sru.debdiff *
Windows with a height of (Display Height - Panel Height) get placed at y=0 (behind the top panel)
which means window titlebars are not reachable without alt-moving the window.
I assume this happens with windows that want to resize themselves if their height exceeds the display resolution.
Reproducable on my 1366x768 screen with LibreOffice and a Qt 5 desktop application I'm working on.
Use the Cntrl+SuperKey+Right or Left Arrow Key
This will resize your currently focused window to occupy the Right (Left) half of the screen. The Title Bar should now be visible, so you need to drag it and resize it at your prefered position. This will save the new position in place of the previously hidden state.
