Description artisan 2011-10-20 21:18:44 UTC
Don't know whether there are many Mint users out there running Netbeans. But certain details quite don't work out on Mint:

* Pull-down menu's are white - which sometimes are shown on top a white screen. Which is kind of merges the menu options with the source code.
* Checked pull-down menu items are invisible. Probably white text on white background.
* The smaller dropdown boxes are sometimes not rendered. That is, only the dropdown button is visible. Probably for the same reason: white on white.

Screenshot of swing demo - as requested

There is however nothing in the demo that shows the "squashed" comboboxes. It seems that the default size is okay. But when it's made smaller - as in the first screenshots - only the button is drawn.
Comment 9 Stanislav Aubrecht 2011-10-31 08:34:20 UTC
please run the swingset demo again and switch to a tab showing a combo box. then attach a new screen shot, thanks
