Solved: Oxygen Menu Problems

Wed Nov 04, 2015 2:32 pm

Putting this here for others who might have this problem.

Oxygen pull down menus were unclickable for me...they'd close before I could click on the item (loosing mouse focus I think is the term). The only workaround that worked was not to maximize the Oxygen window. I had to minimize it, then drag it to as large as I could, without it going to maximize. It was not a very good option because I lost screen real estate.

I tried new Java versions, and other tweaks to no avail. Some Googling revealed this was not an Oxygen problem--but something to do with the Linux Ubuntu/Mint desktop environment and the installed Java. Other softwares were experiencing the same. It had something to do with the X,Y window coordinates not resetting properly, I forget the details.

1. Minimize Oxygen so as to not be full frame.
2. Grab the bar and drag Oxygen to the upper-left corner and drop it there.
3. Go full frame, and you're fixed.

You might have to do this over again if you minimize on occasion.

We are aware of this problem with Oxygen v16.1 and older (Java SE 7 bundled) on some Linux distributions. See my post from this topic:
Fedora 20 menu behavior
Your found workaround is also proposed there.
Using OpenJDK ( 7 or 8 ) is a more permanent solution for those Linux distributions.

Starting with Oxygen v17.0 the installer bundles Java SE 8 which doesn't have this problem.
