File chooser dialog extends beyond screen, ignores size setting
Submitted by Felix E. Klee
Instructions on up-to-date Arch as of today:
$ export GDK_SCALE=2 $ gsettings set org.gtk.Settings.FileChooser window-size '(800,600)' $ gsettings get org.gtk.Settings.FileChooser window-size (800, 600) $ evince $ gsettings get org.gtk.Settings.FileChooser window-size (1203, 902) $ pkg-config --modversion gtk+-3.0 3.22.8
As can be seen, when the evince starts, then the file chooser is reset to its original size. This also happens with other applications linked against GTK+ 3.
The file chooser extends in height beyond the size of the screen. Control buttons at the top and at the bottom are not reachable. With typical window managers, it cannot be moved either. In short:
The file chooser is unusable with GDK_SCALE=2!
