RedHat 8


I was wondering if someone might beable to explain why there are some windows i can resize, and others i can't... is this something on my side i can fix? or is that something to do with the version of RH?

Also, hows the best way to update to the latest Gnome 2.2 without messin up the system? any help is appreciated.. thanks.

Lynn

well which windows can't you resize? care to actually give an example that you think is wrong? it's probably just the way they've been designed.... just like in windows.

updating... get the RPM's from rpmfind.net and upgrade them in gnorpm or from a command line. you will get a lot of dependencies, as gnome is quite big.

Windows i can't resize.. one that comes to mind now is the preference window in GAIM, i think there is one or two setup windows that i can't resize. i'll have to look when i'm tryin to resize windows and see which ones don't, i haven't really paid attention to which specific windows it is or what i'm doing when i can't resize them.

it acts like i can grab the edge of the window, but it won't actually resize them.

Tricky is correct. During programming the designer sets whether or not to allow the user to resize the windows. It bugs me too..
