Bug Description

QA-testing Lubuntu 19.04 Daily

-- better attempt at recreation explanation from comment #4 (edited down)
I boot up 19.04 daily

prefs->LXQtsettings->Monitor.Settings to change monitors to reflect my layout

DVI-I-1 is on top; and DP-1 on bottom (as Monitor.Settings names my displays; these differ on different boxes; they are called DVI0 (top) & DVI1 (bottom) on the second box I had this issue on; note: it must be LXQt.Settings->Monitor.Settings to allow re-arrangement, I didn't use or test prefs->Monitor.Settings)

In original bug report I'd arranged my displays slightly [horizontally too] as my monitors really are, I'm no longer doing this on QA-tests as its hard to describe.

This monitor change causes the panel to appear bottom of top monitor/display, which is where it was the problem.

I open VLC, and `vlc` window opens with "Privacy and Network Access Policy" mostly below vlc window, but the bottom hidden by the panel.

If this test is done without monitor-position change (or in different positions) I could not replicate it.

This bug is a MINOR issue though, I could drag the vlc PrivANetAccPolicy window up so I could read it all, and it only occurs with monitor setup as described so panel is bottom of upper display, let alone you only see that box ONCE. MINOR.

-- end comment 4 addition

Mounted a hdd on machine, found some noise (not-quite-music) & clicked to play, VLC opens with another window titled

"PRIVACY-and-NETWORK-ACCESS-POLICY" which was partially under PANEL

this maybe related to https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/openbox/+bug/1804337/ , or issue may disappear if that is corrected by centering (Walter suggested in #lubuntu-devel)

Apologies if it was already reported.. (I didn't find any, but maybe wrong keywords)

I tested this today (26.02.29) with the build from 25.02.19 daily tests and found no problem.

My bug report description was poor; I raised multiple bugs & was rushing by the time of this one, and didn't return back as I'd intended, so apologies.

I boot up 19.04 daily, (this is being done on new daily downloaded an hour ago)

This monitor change causes the panel to appear bottom of top monitor/display, which is where it was the problem.

I open VLC, and `vlc` window opens with "Privacy and Network Access Policy" mostly below vlc window, but the bottom hidden by the panel.

If this test is done without monitor-position change (or in different positions) I could not replicate it.

I could however replicate this issue though on another box (where the names of displays were different, DVI0 (top) & DVI1 (bottom)) as its displays are vertically aligned as well & I adjust for normal mouse movement.

This bug is a MINOR issue though, I could drag the vlc PANAP window up so I could read it all, and it only occurs with monitor setup so panel is bottom of upper display, let alone you only see that box ONCE.

One thing I'm not clear about: does this *require* multiple displays to replicate?

Yes, and it's another that I can only replicate with vertical arrangement of displays (ie. one above the other; but if reversed it's not an issue).

I believe it's the same as the 3x that are suspected field that wasn't initialized with a value.. it wasn't moved upstream as it only occurs first time vlc loads, and easy to reproduce in a 'live' environment, but not on my tumbleweed setup (as vlc has been used before) so it wasn't pushed upstream..
