[gtk3] "Rename" gui issues when GTK_OVERLAY_SCROLLING=0 and there are scrollbars in the pane

Reported by: gloccoh Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Linux
Operating system version:


using FileZilla package provided by my distribution, Fedora; it's compiled against GTK3 ...

GTK3 has a new "overlay scrolling" feature which makes it so that scrollbars aren't visible until you put the mouse over the pane. This feature can be turned off by setting the environmental variable GTK_OVERLAY_SCROLLING=0. I have turned the overlay scrolling off in this way.

in FileZilla, if GTK_OVERLAY_SCROLLING=0 and the pane has a scrollbar, the "Rename" function usually (if you try more than once, you will likely see the problem) does not produce the inline input box GUI (instead the file just remains highlighted). in reality, you can still rename the file by using the backspace button and typing characters, but you do so blindly as you can't see any of this is working (e.g. you can't see the characters you type) until you press enter and the filename is in fact changed.

This is due to a known bug in wxWidgets.

Please update your copy of wxWidgets to the latest commit from the WX_3_0_BRANCH branch of wx' git repository.

can you direct me to the relevant bug for wxwidgets? do you know which version this issue is fixed in? it's not practical for me to compile from the git repository.

Unfortunately no, there have been too many changes regarding GTK3 support in the wx repository to single out an individual one.
