Bug Description

Some parts of Xpad have stopped working under Ubuntu 21 as reported by Roysten Rigobert.


After analysis the cause seems to be that Ubuntu 21 switched to Wayland as the default session and Xpad does not seem to play nice with Wayland, such as:

* Pads new location is not saved on exit/shutdown.
* Pads cannot be resized, even when the window decorations are shown.

I am still on ubuntu 18.04 with X.
Switching from one monitor (laptop) to 3 monitors (work environment) regularely.
Locations of the notes get lost every time switching. Are there still updates planed for this or do you point users to updating to a newer system (possibly with wayland).
I am willing to donate some money to whoever fixes this.

Hi Moritz,

What do you mean by switching?
Do you mean that sometimes you have 1 monitor connected and sometimes 3 monitors?
