Krita Titlebar doesn't work

Tue Jul 02, 2013 10:42 pm
Hi, I am currently using Ubuntu 12.04, and I recently installed Krita. Krita seems to work fine when I have the program maximized, and the title bar is present then. But when I click "restore," I cannot adjust the size of the program, and the titlebar dissapears. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

I guess that's the Unity features where the menu is put into the top panel. Check if the can hover over the top panel and get the menu.

Hi, I'm the same user, but I had trouble logging back into my account.
Actually, it's not an issue with Unity, I'm running Ubuntu through LXDE.

It's still most likely an issue with the window manager, I fear.

Is the package "dbusmenu-qt" installed? If it is, try uninstalling it then logout and back in again.

I tried to uninstall it on the Synaptic Package manager...but if I uninstall it, I am recquired to uninstall Ubuntu-desktop and unity-2D. I'm not sure sure I want to log out after uninstalling those...

EDIT: Note, I'm only having this problem in Krita. Not in any of my other programs...

If you are using LXDE, then they should not be dependent upon Unity-2D or the "Ubuntu-Desktop" metapackage.

I tried uninstalling dbusmenu-qt, and then I reinstalled Krita, and I am still experiencing the same problem!

Can you please provide screenshots of Krita when it is maximised and in a non-maximised state?
It seems like the window is being set as not managed by the window manager somehow.

I'm not sure if this is relevant, but I now get this error message when I boot up the program:
Could not start process Cannot talk to klauncher: The name org.kde.klauncher was not provided by any service files.

Anyway, here's the screenshot for the non-maximized program.

It's a little frustrating, since I can't make the screen any smaller when it's like that.

And here's the program when it's maximized.

Does a process called "kdeinit4" exist on your system? In this case it seems the window manager is ceasing to decorate Krita - which hints that it may be a bug there instead.

Can you compare the output of "xwininfo" when it is maximised and minimized please?

A program called "kdeinit4" should be present - it is shipped as part of kdelibs, which Krita depends on.
Unfortunately that output doesn't indicate why the window manager is no longer decorating the Krita window.

Are you able to try under another window manager?

kdelibs wasn't installed for some reason. I installed kdelibs5-plugins through the Synaptic Package manager, and it solved my problem. Thanks for the help!

Hi, quick update. While trying out different things to get the pressure sensitivity working in Inkscape, I took this suggestion...

http://askubuntu.com/questions/264676/pressure-sensitivity-with-wacom-bamboo-in-inkscape-0-48

When I ran
sudo apt-get purge overlay-scrollbar
in the terminal, I experienced the same problem that I've been having before when running Krita. I tried reinstalling overlay-scrollbar, but the problem persists.

EDIT: I logged out of LXDE into Unity, and the problem was fixed. (it works again in LXDE)
