After the last successful (for me) posting, thought I'd try
out the other problem which has us stumped. We've opened a
ticket with Red Hat on this one without much luck yet, perhaps
the general Motif community has some ideas or suggestions.
Environment again is a Red Hat Enterprise 5.2 system, Motif
version is 2.3.1 (openmotif-2.3.1-2.el5), and we've reproduced
it on Red Hat V5.3 as well.
Our legacy application launches a few monitoring windows on
an X display, and in the past (on DEC's Tru64 UNIX) we ran
these apps on the Motif window manager mwm. Since lots of
xterm windows are normally launched, we set the system up
to use the mwm iconBox feature to gather up all the icons
so that the screen isn't cluttered.
When we brought this environment forward to Linux and OpenMotif,
we can get the iconBox created as before, but the icons are
obscured. The lower right quadrant of each icon pixmap in the
iconbox are covered by an obscuring feature, and we can't figure
out why. This includes the "default" icon pixmap that mwm assigns
to apps like "xterm". If we disable the iconbox feature, the
icons are not obscured when the window is minimized, so this
situation is unique to the use of the iconbox.
So can anyone reproduce this? All we do is create a simple
Mwm resource file in the home directory of our test account
with the following single line:
Then under Red Hat, we create a $HOME/.Xclients file which
simply sets up the X window screen, launches an xterm, and
execs mwm as follows:
xterm -n xterm -T xterm -geometry 80x25+0+500 -ls -fn 7x14 &
xsetroot -solid black
xset -c s off
We login after setting the "session" option on the login
screen to use this "default" setting rather than Gnome or KDE.
We've tried this on 3 different PCs (Compaq, Dell, HP) and
different graphics adapters and see the same thing - the icon
pixmap for the xterm has its lower right quadrant "obscured".
If you launch other xterms or apps from that xterm, those icons
in the iconbox have the same issue.
