#2 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » OpenBox, problem with maximised windows, scrollbars and edge pixels » 2013-12-31 23:11:58

It's almost like the mouse is in no-man's-land when the margin is set to zero (not on the desktop, and not on the scrollbar/app).

I'll keep poking around and see if something comes up.


#3 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » OpenBox, problem with maximised windows, scrollbars and edge pixels » 2013-12-31 23:01:13 margins are all zero (with the exception of the upper one, set to 1).

Even more interesting....when set to zero, right-click doesn't bring up the Main Menu, but when i set the margin to 1, it does. Weird.

Thanks for getting back.

I've searched for some info (to no avail) and tried playing with various config files (also to no avail), so maybe someone here can help or point me in the right direction.

The problem:
- If i maximise the window of some apps (IceWeasel and Geany, for example), when the mouse is flush against the right side of the screen, clicking the mouse doesn't activate or move the scrollbar of the app.
- however, when running other apps (Chromium and Terminator, for example) the mouse *does* activate the scrollbar when flush against the right side of the screen.

It's almost like there is a 1-2 pixel frame around some apps preventing the mouse from "landing" on the scrollbar when fliush against the right hand side of the screen, but not on other apps.

Any thoughts?

I've been using Linux since the late 90's (started with SuSE 8.x).

Over the years, i bounced around a few distros, but ended up with openSUSE for the last few years.

CrunchBang offers several appealing features that made me jump ship:
- a great community (helpful, loads of relevant info, no egos or attitude!)
- Debian based, meaning great stability and widely used (so loads of info on the net)
- Even better, based on Debian Stable, meaning a long support cycle (and no 6 or 9-monthly reinstall when the new shiney version is released)
- no bloat and no unnecessary services or apps
- fast and nimble (lack of a DE has a lot of benefits)
- complete control over my GUI with a great default selection of apps

The minimalist approach to the UI won't suit everyone, but it works perfectly for me  smile

Hi everyone,

I'm coming to #! after about 6+ years on openSUSE (preceded by Mandriva, Mandrake and SUSE before that).

I've been itching for a while to get onto a Debian-based distro, and tried a few in recent months (including a few *buntu derivatives as well as Debian itself).

I've been running #! on my laptop for the last 3 weeks or so, and lurking around the forums, and I have to admit that I'm hooked, and here to stay.

Looking forward to meeting everyone here.
