Bug Description

Hi, I am using super-wingpanel 0.2.3-0~184~ubuntu12.04.1

I have the following issue:

The globalmenu moves to the right when, for example, i have the terminal window and then open pantheon-files. If I close pantheon-files and reopen then the global menu moves even further. I guess is appending the menus to the left but i don't know why.

I attach a screenshot.

Thanks!!!

I am also experiencing this too. The global menu moves when I change windows using alt+tab

This bug seems be happening when switching windows. Global menu appends space which is same as the window's title to the left side of the wingpanel and it seems like when appending space Global menu adds space relative to the previous starting position of the menu (not from the absolute starting position of the menu)

sajithd (sajithdilshan) wrote :

By going through the code, I just noticed that you've limited the window's title to 30 characters. BTW wouldn't it be better when the tittle is longer than 30 characters, it is ended with '...'. As an example "THIS IS A REALLY LONG TITLE...". I suppose you were going to do something similar since you've extracted only 27 characters. :)

Since title is fixed length there is no need to add padding/margin to the global menu and I couldn't find where the padding/margin is added (cause for this bug)

I love this package super-wingpanel.
I use super-wingpanel version 0.2.3-0~187~ubuntu12.04.1
Also, I find this bug. In my case, Application menu double-click happened this bug. It goes right-side to 5-pixel(?).

Ugly hack to hide empty menuitems:

add to /usr/share/themes/elementary/gtk-3.0/apps.css:

.composited-indicator.menuitem{
padding:0;
-GtkMenuItem-horizontal-padding:0;
}

Please try this and let me know if this works. At least for me, it does.

In IndicatorMenubar.vala search for this method:

public void push_back (IndicatorWidget item) {
            if (sorted_items.index (item) >= 0)
                return; // item already added

            //sorted_items.append (item);
            sorted_items.insert (item, item.get_indicator().get_entries().size);

            apply_new_order.begin ();
        }

Change the append for insert.

I can't figure it out why remains the memory leak issue.

Anyone has any idea??

Hi.
It is in the source code.
You can look through the source here:
http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~heathbar/super-wingpanel/stable/files

The path in the source is: /src/Widgets/IndicatorMenubar.vala
So, to fix the bug you should download the source code, make the changes and recompile the program.

Good luck.

Sorry, but only the project maintainer can do this. You should ask Heath Paddock, he's the developer and maintainer.

P.S. I don't know about elementary-white.svg. Maybe it's just the elemantary OS logo. You can try searching the Internet for it.
