Hi, I'm trying to run the FFB client using the Icedtea webstart package in GNU/Linux. The client loads up and seems to run fine, except that there is an annoying grey bar that is overlaying the bottom of the window and blocking the chat input box and reroll count. I'm just wondering if anyone else uses FFB on GNU/Linux and has seen similar behaviour and/or knows of a way to get rid of the bar?

When the client first loads, a button pops up in the bar saying 'about FFB' (or something), so it seems like it is some sort of menu or status bar. I just want to move or get rid of it.

Screenshot is below (should be visible once it's been approved). Thanks!

there was a thread about FFB and Linux somewhere....ah yes, here

there are some ideas near the end of that thread that could help.

Because of work-related reasons I have the oracle linux package on my notebook (xubuntu 16.04, i think), on that machine it doesn't have those problems

In short, we recommend using the Oracle JRE for FFB. Icedtea (or other OpenJDK based products) might work, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

Ah, according to the first post in that thread, the annoying grey bar is a known issue between openjdk and the Gnome desktop environment. I switched to LXDE and it works fine.

Thanks Loew! Smile

Icedtea seems to work fine, as long as you're not using Gnome! Wink
