[SOLVED] Menu Windows open upwards

Postby h0la » Tue May 11, 2021 3:45 pm

Hello there!
[bug]Since my latest package update the menu windows open upwards and thus leave the window/screen. Only the menu item "window" opens normally (downwards).

My system:
OS: Fedora 33 (Workstation Edition) (GNOME/gnome)
Word size of OS: 64-bit
Word size of FreeCAD: 64-bit
Version: 0.19.Unknown
Build type: Unknown
Python version: 3.9.0
Qt version: 5.15.1
Coin version: 4.0.0a
OCC version: 7.5.0
Locale: German/Germany (de_DE)
[/bug]

Do you know a workaround for this behaviour?

Is there a bug tracker where i can notify this bug or does this forum represent the bug reporting?

Thanks in advance!
Oliver

Welcome to the forum!

Can you post a screenshot? I use fedora 33 as my main system, so we can compare the mileage.

Edit: it's OK on:
OS: Fedora 33 (Workstation Edition) (GNOME/gnome-xorg) <-- notice gnome xorg vs gnome)
Word size of OS: 64-bit
Word size of FreeCAD: 64-bit
Version: 0.19.Unknown
Build type: Unknown
Python version: 3.9.0
Qt version: 5.15.1
Coin version: 4.0.0a
OCC version: 7.5.0
Locale: Polish/Poland (pl_PL)

and:
OS: Fedora 33 (Workstation Edition) (GNOME/gnome-xorg)
Word size of FreeCAD: 64-bit
Version: 0.20.24848 (Git)
Build type: Release
Branch: master
Hash: 0cfea3fee3e7848bbf043d2b1a19f6405d7ebe25
Python version: 3.9.4
Qt version: 5.15.2
Coin version: 4.0.0a
OCC version: 7.5.0
Locale: Polish/Poland (pl_PL)

Edit2: after system update is still OK, albeit splash screen was in the lleft top corner:
OS: Fedora 33 (Workstation Edition) (GNOME/gnome)
Word size of OS: 64-bit
Word size of FreeCAD: 64-bit
Version: 0.19.Unknown
Build type: Unknown
Python version: 3.9.0
Qt version: 5.15.1
Coin version: 4.0.0a
OCC version: 7.5.0
Locale: Polish/Poland (pl_PL)

same here:

Have you already tried to reset your config file?

I have removed the directory ~/.FreeCAD or do you have something else in mind?

That's exactly what I had in mind.

[bug]Since my latest package update the menu windows open upwards and thus leave the window/screen. Only the menu item "window" opens normally (downwards).
Today updating my distribution (fedora) resulted in installing
freecad-1:0.19.2-1.fc33.x86_64
With this version the menu is working fine again.

Please regard the posting as fixed.


Thank you for your time!
