OpenCPN dialogue boxes not scrolling

Hello all.

I've just reinstalled OpenCPN (ver 5.6.2 ) onto a netbook (running Ubuntu 21.10 with LXQT desktop ver 0.17.0). The display resolution is 1024 x 600.

I cannot get the dialogue boxes to scroll. For example, when attempting to install my o-charts, I'm unable to scroll down to "Actions" so that I can then install the selected set. There are no scroll bars available and, I can't resize the box from its default.


Any suggestions on how to reslove this?

HeviiSail...
A screenshot would help us to understand this effect better.
Thanks

Re: OpenCPN dialogue boxes not scrolling

Screen shots as follows. As you'll be able to clearly see, some dialogue boxes have the necessary scroll bars while others don't...

* Yes, I'm using the current flatpak beta. However, I had no choice as the available package from the Ubuntu software repository didn't show any extra plugins after refreshing.

Re: OpenCPN dialogue boxes not scrolling

So... judging from comments posted elsewhere it seems that I'm not the only one suffering from this rather serious bug.



As mentioned earlier, how can I extricate myself from this mess (while maintaining the o-charts license when, assumedly, I must reinstall an OS in which OpenCPN functions as desired)?

HeviiSail...
1. Ubuntu 21.10 is not supported with plugins. 22.04 is the latest LTS, and is supported, at least for o-charts_pi.

2. I am not sure that OCPN native on 22.04 will handle 1024x600 screen any better than flatpak. This screen config was evidently not well tested. Have you tried OCPN on Ubuntu 22.04 ?


3. We can "fix" the o-charts license reset once we figure out what system you should be using on this device. Don't worry about that just now, please.

After getting the boat in the water I finally had time to reconfigure my Linux box. Yes, Dave, I've now tried OCPN on Ubuntu 22.04. No joy . The necessary scroll bars are still missing. And, of course, so now is my second oeSENC license .



Until the UI is fully functional, it's impossible for me to run the program on my computer. I'm actually surprised that nobody else is suffering from the same problem, particularly those with Raspberry Pis and external monitors.

Re: OpenCPN dialogue boxes not scrolling

Is a general update in the works in which this UI bug might also be addressed? I'm just trying to see if I can wait it out or, if I must try something altogether different in the interim.

Re: OpenCPN dialogue boxes not scrolling

HeviiSail...
Coming back to this question now.
I am suspicious of the Display/Window manager on your particular linux distro. OCPN has no trouble with 600 vertical resolution on Raspberry Pi. Scroll bars are presented when necessary. See pix, rPi at 640x480.

I would like to see your logfile. Maybe there will be some clue there.


Thanks
Dave

Re: OpenCPN dialogue boxes not scrolling

Finally found a Raspbery Pi onto which I've loaded OpenCPN!



Would it be possible to have my 2nd licence for the oeSENC charts applied to this new box since I was never able to have them working on the Ubuntu box?

Re: OpenCPN dialogue boxes not scrolling

It appears that Dave had been working behind the scenes; I'm currently downloading the oeSENC charts onto the piBox (at a leisurly download speed of 36 kbs .)



- Thanks, Dave!
