#1118 closed defect (fixed)

Terminal window offset on the XO

Reported by: sascha_silbe Owned by: sayamindu
Priority: Unspecified by Maintainer Milestone:
Component: Terminal Version: Git as of bugdate
Severity: Major Keywords:
Cc: Distribution/OS: Unspecified
Bug Status: New


Since the switch to metacity, the Terminal window is offset on my XO (running sugar-jhbuild on DebXO), with part of it being out of screen (=> more or less unusable). It works fine in my VMs, so it may be resolution-dependent.

I could reproduce this with Pippy, and the following patch in sugar-toolkit seems to fix this:

diff --git a/src/sugar/graphics/ b/src/sugar/graphics/
index 0d53776..aba2e21 100644
--- a/src/sugar/graphics/

     def __window_state_event_cb(self, window, event):
         if not (event.changed_mask & gtk.gdk.WINDOW_STATE_FULLSCREEN):

Could you try and verify ?

I tried this patch and it seemed to fix some other activities that were off center as well, e.g., domino and ecumondo

Unfortunately this doesn't fix Terminal for me (not tried any other activity yet). I've been not been able to reproduce it on any other host or even sugar-emulator on the XO, only when running sugar directly on the native X server. Could just be timing related, though.

FWIW I have been able to reproduce it by running sugar-jhbuild on a different host (running Debian squeeze) with the X server attached to the XO via SSH forwarding (i.e. X server runs on the XO, sugar-jhbuild on another host), but not the other way round. So the X server on the XO might play a role in this...

For reference, these are the versions of the Xorg packages installed on the XO:

olpc@xo-sascha:~$ dpkg -l '*xorg*'|grep ^i
