goofy X menus

Post by Joseph Howel » Thu, 05 Feb 1998 04:00:00


I'm having a problem with drop-down menus under X.  When I try to access
a menu, some menus "jump" to behind the window of whatever prog I have
up.  Sometimes they just "flash" for a moment then vanish (even if I
hold down the mouse button). Ususally I have to click a few times before
the menu will stay put.

This is not endemic to any specific program; but I've noted that it
happens with most (if not all) tcl/tk progs. Also happens with Netscape
and others.  But it does not happen with root window menus.

I have xfree86 (most current version...forget the #) and kernel 2.0.32.
This has been happening since my most recent kernel upgrade a couple
months ago, not my xfree86 upgrade (which I did after that).  Everything
else (all the slackware packages) are up-to-date too, BTW.

Any ideas? Thanks!

1. Control Center loses menu after editing menu in menuDrake

Using, Mandrake and KDE2:

When I edit my menus in MenuDrake (which has its own issues) I lose all the
items in KDE Control Center (menus, etc.)  Control Center launches, but
there is just a blank white area where the various choices used to be (look
n feel, etc).

I've recreated this twice now.  I have to full reinstall to fix it as I
found no way to install just the control center.

Anyone else with this problem, or have any ideas?
