Email inquiry - Hydrogen window cut off on my eee-pc


Hi,

When I start hydrogen it clips the bottom of the display off because I am viewing on a netbook which has a height of 600 only.

Do you know what I can do to get it to display any better?

I have clicked the "maximise" button with no change.

Hi [name withheld],

So it won't resize past a certain minimum?

A cool thing about IceWM is that if you right-click on a window's button in the taskbar (where it shows Hydrogen when you minimize it to get it to pop back up) you can select move, and even move the window partially off the screen if necessary.

Maybe try changing the screen resolution?

Hope that helps.

Hi,

I tried the "move" and it is useful, but only moves the window as one entire block, it does not "scroll" the window, so still leaves some of the hydrogen control functions outside the movable window.

Also, once the window has "popped" up to the top of the screen, the "move" bar is off the top of the screen and cannot be grabbed again, so hydrogen sits on top of everything else and stops me accessing the minimised programs.

I will keep trying things as I get time.

You can switch to jwm by changing /etc/windowmanager from "icewm" to "jwm" and restarting, but I haven't even tried that, and it used to mess up Ardour... which is why it always comes with icewm.

I've experienced your problem before using other programs (not on Studio 13.37), and I know it sucks. Unfortunately, it seems like some programs are designed to only open at a minimum size. Sometimes that's cause by the gtk theme, but in this case it's the limited screen real estate of your eee-pc.

Did you have this problem before?

Good luck.

Yes, I think you are right that 600 pixels height just does not offer enough real estate for Hydrogen. Never mind.

I've got the same problem on my Acer Aspire One. I have contacted the Hydrogen developer forum to ask if there is anything they can do to get Hydrogen to display a scroll bar when using a smaller screen. So far no response. I'm hoping they can sort this out because i really want to lay down some beats while I'm wasting time on public transport. Netbooks are small enough to carry around on the bus... Might as well get some work/play done...

Does the trick of holding down Alt then left-clicking anywhere in the window work with icewm? It's not perfect but means you can move the title bar out of the visible window, use something, then move it further out of the screen.

Yes, thanks for that, it does seem to work, EXCEPT that it shifted the whole image rather than shifting the program contents (if you know what I mean..). My screenshot shows that there is still something important at the bottom right of the Hydrogen window, which is still out of view.

I'm not sure I see what's going on there, can't you pull the bottom of the window down now to see more of the contents?

Awesome, yes that works! Many thanks. Chalk up another success. I guess that makes you 274 now :-)

Cool, glad I could help. I struggled with the same thing when I first put a new version of Linux on my netbook.

I just got a reply back from the Hydrogen developers - it looks like they have released a newer version which is optimised for netbooks. Here is my question and their reply:

Code:
> I use Hydrogen on an Acer Aspire One netbook running Studio 1337 (a
> version of puppy linux) and am losing the lower portion of the Hydrogen
> window - and there is no vertical scroll bar that would allow me to see
> what buttons/functions are down below.
>
> Is there any way to add a scroll bar? (Although the netbook is tiny it
> would be real nice to be able to use Hydrogen while I am on the train /
> bus etc.
>
Hello!
A better way to report bugs is the use of our bug tracker, which can be 
found at
github [1]. Can you create a ticket there (you have to register first) 
and provide us a
link to a screenshot? Btw. which version of hydrogen are you using? 
0.9.6 provides
a tabbed interface which is optimised for netbooks!
