#1326 new bug

GTK interface wider than screen with large font size or high DPI

Reported by: mikechelen Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: 2.x
Component: GTK UI Version: 1.2.3
Keywords: font, dpi Cc:


With system fonts set to a large size or high DPI, the Deluge interface becomes too wide to fit on the screen. The window cannot be made any smaller, and has to be moved back and forth to see everything. It also breaks the maximize function. Occurs in Ubuntu 10.04, with font size 16 at 144 DPI, at 1600x1200 screen resolution.

  • Summary changed from GTK interface doesn't fit on screen with large font size or high DPI to GTK interface wider than screen with large font size or high DPI

The main window width is primarily affected by the status bar which cannot shrink below the label sizes. I attempted to enable ellipsize for the labels but this creates new issues with their width.

The solution will require calculating the label widths based on overall window size thus is more complicated.

So in the meantime an obvious workaround would be to hide the status bar.

Appropriate snippet from this discussion:

At one point I thought that including a Preferences page for the Statusbar would be a good idea. The user could toggle on/off the various indicators/items. Maybe that is what we need?
