Bug Description

I am trying to add an online account, nextcloud

three fields show, server, username and password.

There is no Apply or OK button.

I cannot add the account.

Resizing the window does not help. Fields just get longer, still no buttons.

Ubuntu 19.10

Thanks for report. ubuntu-docs is for bugs in the desktop documentation, though, and this is apparently not about that. Changing affected package.

The window on my 19.10 (attached) does not look exactly as the one in your screenshot. I have a "Connect" button at the top right which probably would be clickable if I filled the fields.

Which desktop environment are you on?

If you are on Ubuntu GNOME, did you possibly change the appearance settings somehow, maybe in Tweaks? (I imagine that a possible explanation is that you enabled something which is not compatible with the design of that Nextcloud window.)

Thanks for moving the bug to the correct section. When creating it I hade to choices "Ubunto-docs" or "I don't know". I selected the latter.

Looking at the reviews of "Online account" it looks that I am not alone. Someone else reported the problem.
But I think I have an idea. The Ubuntu installation is a stock installation, but I think I have changed how menues and/or title bar of window should show. I will look into that.

Regardless, it is not a good implementation if submit buttons disapear if you change system settings of windows. The function of a window should remain, even if the theam of the desktop change.

Yeah, please do. I keep the "Incomplete" status of this bug until you have provided some details. It would be good if you could figure out exactly which changed setting(s) broke the window.

Fair point.

I have tried every setting I can find. The buttons remain invisible.
I run Ubuntu 19.10 with default unity desktop.

However.. when I changed to "Ubuntu on Wayland" in the login screen.. the buttons appeared. So, my problem with the "Online Accounts" is solved with a work-around, but the problem in Unity remains.
