#6001 new defect

Smiley rendering problem in RTL messages

Reported by: remohammadi Owned by: datallah
Milestone: Component: winpidgin (gtk)
Version: 2.4.1 Keywords: BiDi


In a Right-to-Left message, smilies are misplaced in the reverse order.

I'm attaching a screenshot to show the problem. I've set a theme with varied-width smilies to show that the required space is reserved correctly, but images are not loaded in the position they should be.

This was a GTK bug. It is fixed in the current development version of GTK (2.17.0). This ticket should be closed...

If this is in fact a GTK+ bug fixed in 2.17.x, then we will have to wait for 2.18.0 to come out to ship a fix for Windows users (we don't like using development releases unless it's an absolute necessity). I agree, the ticket should be closed, but let's leave it open until we can ship a GTK+ 2.18.x for Windows.

Just following up: how can I tell what version of GTK is shipped with Pidgin?

comment:5 Changed 10 years ago by bernmeister

To be more specific: I'm on Ubuntu so downloaded the Pidgin installer .exe to check. Extracted it and looked for something/anything to give a GTK version banana!

  • Component changed from unclassified to winpidgin (gtk)
  • Owner changed from rekkanoryo to datallah

The latest stand-alone installer we ship is 2.14.7, so I believe that is what's included in our package.

FYI, GTK+ 2.18 is out.
