Subject: Menus from Fedora virtual machine off screen
Date: Sat, 11 Feb 2017 22:14:00 -0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

I don't know if this is a Fedora 25 question or a cygwin X question
since I upgraded at the same time.

Ever since my Fedora 25 upgrade, the menus from programs running on
the Linux box using cygwin x as the X server appear off screen at the
top left. It is impossible to use these menus.

An example is Firefox'smenu, but this happens with many Linux programs.

Is there a configuration option that I am missing in cygwin X?
