windows + xming + deluge issue

Postby slvrdragn » Tue Jan 23, 2018 8:57 pm

So i'm a linux server but my primary clients are windows so I user putty with ssh forwarding and xming to use the GTK UI but i've noticed a strange problem. The preferences window for deluge has gotten so large, i can't see any buttons. I can't configure through the preferences window in GTK anymore. Wondering if anyone knows how to resize it back to a normal size?

So your setup is a Linux server with Deluge daemon but you mostly connect from a Windows computer, right?
Why don't you use the Windows client to connect the daemon on the Linux box?

2 reasons.
I'm using the 2.0 beta line and can't find a windows build for it :)
And i don't want a footprint if i use a remote / work computer.

I must agree, it's a very good reason :D. I've not tested the 2.0 version yet and I4ve not GTK UI under my linux box but on my Windows GTK UI I have a config file named "gtkui.conf" containing

"pref_dialog_height": 710,
"autoadd_queued": false,
"pref_dialog_width": 733

Maybe such file exist for you too and you can change the value ?
