XFE missing the window bars.
« on: August 01, 2010, 08:28:07 PM »
XFE 1.19.2 new install on microcore.  FFox Leafpad, nano installed fine.
However, XFE opens in full-screen mode without the window border tools.
(MaxVert, MaxHorz, Minimize, & Exit)
I tried booting from CD and installing... same problem.

FFox defaults the monitor like 1024x, but I used the View/Zoom to fit it into 800x screen. 
XFE does not have a Zoom feature, nor window borders.  Looks like MS-DOS  :)

note: TinyCore does not recognize my on-board video.
I must Xsetup 800x at boot time.   Higher 1024 & 1280 resolutions are not 60hz. 

Suggestions are welcomed.

This is at least somewhat a window manager issue as there are other apps that do the same.

But Icewm opens it ok at 800x600.
