Don’t know if this issue has been discussed here, I searched the boards but couldn’t find anything.
Anyway, I’m writing a Java app that has a menu bar. When I run the app under fvwm I run into the following issue.
After I resize the window by dragging with the mouse, the mouse pointer location no longer points correctly to the location of the menu item I want to select. This may be difficult to visualize, but let’s say my menu has three options: Open File, Options, Quit.
AFTER I resize the main window, I have to point my mouse on Quit in order to select Open File. The menu item currently selected is highlighted by the Java app, so after a resize, when I point the mouse at the Quit item, the Open File item is highlighted. I actually have to move the mouse below the menu in order to see the Quit option highlighted.
This doesn’t happen when I first bring the app up. Everything works correctly when I start the app up. However, after a resize, it’s as if fvwm didn’t update where the mouse is located with respect to the window. The java app consists of tabbed panes. Each tabbed pane also has a popup menu which is brought up by clicking mouse button 3. The same behavior is seen in the popup menus after a resize.
This doesn’t happen in Gnome. But I prefer fvwm. I am using fvwm 2.5.26
Is there some option in fvwm I can set? Is there something I can do in the Java app?
