The bar is only annoying but should not keep you from playing. To 'see' the number of rerolls and apos just hover over the place and the numbers will show as a tooltip (is that the correct name). To chat: just aim below the chat box in the white space and type away.

Probably the most annoying for me is that I can only see what I typed after I hit sent Smile

Is there a variable the client or the VM checks to determine whether it's running under KDE/Gnome and thus prefer Qt or Gtk bindings?

go the whole minimalist hog, and use a tiling WM. I have no prob using Xmonad Wink

(more seriously, I think you are the first person to report the issue with one of the *Box vm. are you using it standalone, or as a replacement for metacity?)

I'm using it stand alone. I'm using Gtk for themeing which I think is the issue.

Looking through the java documentation would the following be a possible patch?

if ( UIManager.SystemLookAndFeel() == com.sun.java.swing.plaf.gtk.GTKLookAndFeel ) {
UIManager.setLookAndFeel(UIManager.getCrossPlatformLookAndFeelClassName() ); }
else { UIManager.setLookAndFeel(UIManager.SystemLookAndFeel() ); }

I'm not a Java programmer so you'll have to excuse if it's incorrect.

Not sure if it is GTK related, but on a vanilla OpenBox environment, the client displays properly (for me). What theme are you using, and how did you install it? I'm quite happy to try and replicate your setup to verify it

I'm using Arch Linux. Everything's (Openbox and Gtk anyway) installed through its package manger.

Openning the appearance applet: Controls are Industrial, Window Decorations are handled by Openbox anyway but are set to simple in the applet.

My .xsession script is:

#!/bin/bash
export GNOME_DESKTOP_SESSION_ID=A # Hack to get xdg-open to use gnome-open.
setxkbmap gb # UK Keyboard.
gnome-settings-daemon # In order to enable gtk theming
(sleep 10;nitrogen --restore)& # To set my desktop wallpaper

xbindkeys & # Keyboard shortcuts
tint2 & # Panel
conky & # System monitor
dbus-launch gnome-do & # Linux version of Quicksilver.
wicd-gtk & # Wireless manager
exec openbox-session

On Arch too Smile

Your problem is with the environment variable: export GNOME_DESKTOP_SESSION_ID=A

Comment it out to resolve the issue. not sure what it does, or how to work around it, but if you comment it out, the bar goes away.

Hi,

Yes, I've several issues with FFB on my Gnome desktop Linux (Ubuntu 10.04).

    I have the following problems
  • Q: Using Linux and the Gnome Desktop a white bar appears at the bottom of the screen, prohibting the use of the chat. (A: This is a known issue with Gnome and the Java JDesktopPane (InternalFrames) in that Gnome renders a toolbar inside the application. The only workaround at the moment is to use a different Desktop (e.g. KDE) or Windowmanager. )
  • Java uses lot's of ressources. Is there some memory leaks ?
  • I've a problem with sounds. There is a delay between actions and sound. The delay increase over time. The more strange is that I can still hear FFB sounds after I closed the client.

Due to those problems, I didn't start playing with the FFB client (I was just spectating some games). Has those issues been solved ?

java version "1.6.0_20"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_20-b02)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 16.3-b01, mixed mode)


I play FUMBBL and im an ubuntu user. I just got xfce4, then when starting a session i choose xfce instead of gnome, and this makes me see all the game window

This to the terminal in Ubuntu for installing Xfce:

sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop

If I comment out that line xdg-open doesn't know how to handle Java Web Start (or indeed, any other type of file) which means Chromium doesn't know how to open FFB (as well as messing up any kind of mime-type detection).

Invoking javaws manually without that environmental variable confirms that the issue is Gtk theming - so the patch I posted a few posts above should work around it by loading the cross platform theme rather than using gtk.

Oh and do not use OpenJDK. Install sun-java instead.

I cant make the sound work though, only for some milisecs, then complete silence.

I've tested it under both OpenJDK and Sun and noticed no difference.

What you can do is to add this line before the last line of /usr/bin/javaws:

Code:

unset -v GNOME_DESKTOP_SESSION_ID


This won't confuse xdg-open and friends since they have already run, but still give you the working default java theme.

You will have to do this over everytime java is updated though.

ok, you could try this:

rename the javaws file to javaws-mod

create a new text file, named javaws, in the same folder as the original javaws file, with the following 2 lines:

unset -v GNOME_DESKTOP_SESSION_ID
./javaws-mod

save the file and make it executable

test

NOTE: on my Arch machine, javaws is found in /opt/java/jre/bin
NOTE: This is, at best, a dirty hack. You may want to add some comment to your text file, which explains what it does, and why it does it, if you need to be reminded a few years down the line. It may also break other programs. I did not test it myself.
