Preferences dialog needs a close button depending on window manager, right?



  • I'm testing newest Vivaldi snapshot on Linux. Today I'm using the i3 window-manager, which is a tiled window-manager. I open the preferences dialog of Vivaldi and i3-wm doesn't show a window-border. Therefore I cannot close the preferences dialog. There is no working keyboard-shortcut (like ctrl-w or ctrl-q). I recommend to put a "Close" button into this dialog or to open it in a tab of Vivaldi. What do you Linux-Users think about that?



  • Hmm does it close itself with Ctrl+Q or F2 and typing "Close Settings Dialog" or something?

    Never uses those tiling WMs but likely the workaround should be searched on wm configuration itself.

    Until now every WM i tried has the close button.

    Anyway I have reported your request.

    Edit:

    The close combination should be

    mod + shift + q (mod could be alt or win depending on your configuration)



  • Thanks for your replies. F2 doesn't work, neither does CTRL-Q. Of course the i3-shortcut for "kill window" (Mod-Shift-Q for example) works.



  • it's fixed in 1.0.252.3.
    I thank you very much.
    :woohoo:
