SL 1.7.3 window height on Debian

Post by bamboomusic »

Hi forum,
this is my first post: I'm using SooperLooper for a while, and I consider it an important piece of my workflow (small demo here: https://youtu.be/u8AQezPfPGU )
I've always used SooperLooper compiled from source on Debian Wheezy.
Now I switch to Jessie and, in order to compile SL properly, I must apply the debian patches I found here (http://http.debian.net/debian/pool/main ... ian.tar.xz). One of these patches fix the compatibility of libwxgtk (Jessie has only version 3.0).
The only annoying thing is the SL window height: it is shorter than the correct size (attached images).
Is there a way to fix this?

Thanks!

Nicola

Hi Nicola,
I guess you tried that already, but can you adjust the height and width via dragging the down right corner of the window? It can be tricky to find the right spot where to click, but it should be possible.
It's a little bit annoying to do this every time, but I remember that I had this problem too some time ago... Don't know which version that was though.

Awesome video by the way!

Greetings,
Jan

Thank you Jan,
yes, I resize the window every time. I'd like to find a fix, just to restore the correct window behaviour.
I also tried to delete the SL configuration stored in .sooperlooper, with no result.

Hi,
It could be a litle bit late... but I have the same problem (with debian testing and the latest raspbian) and I use xdotool https://www.semicomplete.com/projects/x ... w_commands
It just change the window size once. I made a script that launch this command line after slgui start

Code: Select all

 xdotool search --name "SooperLooper v 1.7.3" windowsize 800 350
(You could change the windowsize with your own values)

Hi,
I'm also using a script for SL, so your solution fits perfectly!
Thank you!
