[jitsi-users] Some bugs for Jitsi 2.2 on linux


#1

Hey.

I'm using Jitsi v2.2 stable on Xubuntu 13.04 running XFCE, and I've
noticed some cosmetic problems.

First of all Jitsi always seems to create a very tiny inert window on
my desktop (I'm not sure, if I can call it a window though). This
"window" always appears on the top left of the screen, and is about
16x16 pixels. It looks like whatever pixels were last present at that
corner of the screen. If I run Jitsi normally, the window is not
visible, because it copies the pixels from the background and
disguises itself. But when I change the desktop background to another
image, the window becomes visible. Sometimes it steals pixel colors
from active windows. It doesn't seem to serve any purpose, doesn't
react when clicked on and cannot be moved. When I exit jitsi, the
window disappears. Please fix this so that the window does not appear.

Secondly, the graphics for the task tray icon is ugly. The jitsi
symbol is misaligned - it appears on the bottom right corner of the
icon space rather than its center. It also lacks any transparency, and
instead has this ugly blue background.

Lastly, the right-click menu seems to be misbehaving. A lot of times
when I right-click the icon, the menu appears and then suddenly
disappears when I release the right mouse button. Right-clicking is
usually done very fast, so the menu is only visible for a brief
moment. Only in very rare instances will the menu stay up.

Another thing I noticed is that sometimes the menu will refuse to
close when left-clicking on the desktop (or anywhere outside the menu
for this matter). The only way to close the menu is to either select a
menu item on it (i.e. "Show") or by right-clicking the task icon to
have it reappear and hopefully disappear (see previous bug).

Thanks

Not sure how useful it is to add here that on my updated Arch Linux laptop, 2.2 release, using Awesome I see the same icon without any transparency. Haven't checked the top left corner bug.

Hope it helps,
Nick

Similar problems sometimes on Linux Mint 13 LTS. Jitsi takes a very long time to start up on Ubuntu 10 & Linux Mint 13. About 1 minute. Also a permanent tab called JavaEmbeddedFrame appears on the task bar for the icon with the blue blackground non-transparent to show up. I right click on it and move it to another desk top. I can live with all these problems, but mention it in case any one wants to test/verify and create a bug report.

I can confirm the pixel box issue on Linux Mint 15 (Cinnamon and MATE), Linux Mint 14 (MATE) and Trisquel 6.

Also Linux Mint 13 LTS. Sometimes the jitsi icon is a black square. Other times it is a blue background. Other times the below bug appears.
