Re: How to increase the font size of the menus?

Near the end of the display(1) man page, it is said that display accepts "standard X resources as command line options", including "-font". This means that one can provide the font either via X resources or via the "-font" command-line option. X resources should be the more practical way, but I've j...

Re: missing window border on PNG images with transparency

Any news? FYI, I got this problem yesterday on a TIFF image. More precisely, the TIFF image was the result of a scan thus didn't contain any transparent pixel and the window border was visible. But when I selected View → Half Size, the window border disappeared. I don't see the point of making the w...

Re: missing window border on PNG images with transparency

That is true, though it is more typically an application deveolpers choice. Most applications do allow you to turn it off. Yes, that's why I've suggested an option for "display". Regardless you can override border handling using most (good) window managers. I could do this with a patched fvwm up to...

Re: missing window border on PNG images with transparency

IM display is not the only one to do this. XMMS, GKrellM, and even Chrome (google web client) in some modes, mak ethe same 'no borders' request of the window manager. I assume that the context is different: these other applications may do this request due to a user config choice, not because the fi...

Re: missing window border on PNG images with transparency

We'll take a look but we have not touched the XWindow code in 15 years and we've never had a complaint about shaped windows. We're simply calling the X11 API to define a shaped window based on the transparency values. Well, the XWindow code (or something related to it) has been touched between IM 6...

Re: missing window border on PNG images with transparency

The window border is missing as the image contains an alpha channel and as such may be a 'shaped' image. Shaped images does not need or want a window manager 'border' and as such does not request one. The window border is useful to be able to resize the window easily or to do other operations on th...

missing window border on PNG images with transparency

When I run the "display" command on a PNG file that has transparency ( example of such a PNG file ), the window border is displayed, then cleared after a fraction of second (it no longer appears). This is a Debian/unstable machine and my window manager is FVWM. This problem has happened at least wit...
