Bug Description

the bug is exactly what it says in the title. After upgrading to the latest kernel the output of unit conversion in gnome-calculator is no longer visible. I am glad that the developers got rid of the annoying resizing of the calculator window while typing in, but it seems to cause this problem.

Thanks for solving it.

Thank you for your bug report, gnome-calculator didn't change recently though. Did you tweak your font config or theme? Does it do the same with a guest user session?

Changed in gnome-calculator (Ubuntu):
importance: Undecided → Low

I did not change theme nor font.

In the guest account, the calculator works as before - annoying resizing and conversion is visible.

I realised that for some units (e.g. angles) the roll-down menu is slimmer than for others (e.g. currency), so I tried changing the units. Suddenly, the conversion result was visible. Even when I changed back to currency - the window resized! But after closing and reopening the calculator the conversion for currencies popped up and the results were hidden once again.

In addition to that, when I close the calculator with angle units selected, then reopen it, select currency and start typing numbers, the deg to rad conversion was still visible but inactive and Euro to Dollar was not (see the printscreen).
I don't want to change units to angle and back to currency every time...

I upgraded to kernel 4.2 and suddenly the calculator is fixed.

In 3.22.0 the conversion is there but doing the kgs -> pounds is not possible as pounds is unavailable but oddly pounds -> kgs is ok.
