Filezilla unresizable on HiDPI display

Reported by: wayland Owned by:
Priority: low Milestone:
Component: wxGTK Version: 3.0.2
Keywords: Cc: swt@…
Blocked By: Blocking:
Patch: no


Before I dive too far into this I want to preface that I realize this may very well be a Filezilla-specific problem, as the issue was seemingly already reported on the Filezilla Forums and patched through this website.

I'm running Fedora 24 on a Microsoft Surface Pro 3. Filezilla opens in a very tiny window with no way to maximize or resize the window. My short-term fix was to use the Gnome Tweak tool to change the window resolution back to 1, do what I need to do in Filezilla, then reset to 2 to resume normal day-to-day operations. If it is properly patched in wxWidgets like I suspect, I will happily open a ticket with Filezilla to remedy the issue. It appears to only happen with Filezilla and no other programs. Thanks!

Are you using the wxWidgets package from the Fedora repository (wxGTK3) or are you compiling wxWidgets yourself?

comment:3 Changed 4 years ago by wayland

I'm using wxGTK3 as was shipped with the Fedora 24 Workstation image. I assume that GitHub link is likely the fix but from what I've gathered that should already be a part of the upstream code base, am I right? That patch was submitted 8 months ago.

Sorry, looks like I forgot to cc myself on this so I didn't see your reply. The fix is part of the upstream code base, but upstream hasn't had a release since then, so Fedora hasn't picked it up. I can pull this patch into the Fedora package though.

That's great! Does that mean, when it's in, I can update through dnf and that will solve it?

Yes, exactly.

This should be fixed now in Fedora. Can you please confirm?

comment:8 Changed 4 years ago by wayland

Funny enough, now I can't. I had to completely nuke my Fedora/Surface rig and re-install Windows (I got too over-confident when moving disk partitions around and foobarred the whole thing). Although, I might be able to spin up a VM tomorrow or the next day and test it - I imagine that would produce the same results, right?

It should, I think.
