• strange window display issue

    From candycane@VERT/CONCHAOS to All on Fri Jul 28 18:47:36 2023
    hi,
    i've been having an issue for a while with unix, basically when a new window spawns it sometimes doesn't update the window unless its being moved or another window is drawn on top of it, and its extremely annoying. its even happening to xscreensaver occasionally. any ideas?

    wm is openbox

    It may be good to know what variation of unix and window manager you're using.

    wm is openbox

    I'd recommend trying another WM to see if it also behaves that way.

    Also think about fixing your Shift key. You don't want to be mistaken
    for "MRO", or have people think you're a third-grader, do you?

    No? It's probably a habit from using a lot of irc chats and like other instant message platforms n stuff..

    I'll bet I've been using IRC a lot longer than you have, and many IM
    apps over the years, and I don't do that. Neither does anyone I know.

    Why would you *WANT* to appear to be sloppy/lazy/illiterate? Sorry, but
    I don't understand that kind of behavior. Is it really that much harder
    to write properly? Are you in that much of a hurry that you can't do
    it?
