SeaDAS 8.3 on CentOS 7 widgets "cramped"

by haag » Thu Feb 23, 2023 5:07 pm America/New_York

Hello,
I'm returning to SeaDAS after a bit of a hiatus since 7.5.
I have a fully updated CentOS 7 workstation, with an Nvidia driver for Gnome.
I've installed SeaDAS 8.3 and am running with a Python 3.10.9 Anconda env.
I understand SeaDAS pnly mentions Ubuntu, but I'm hoping to be able to work with it in CentOS to aid in teaching a Satellite Oceanography course.

The application runs, but the GUI is broken, with the side panel "tab" titles not fully display (wrt height). Individual "popup" tool windows seem OK, but the basic app layout GUI exhibits this problem. Additionally, the text of a product's content sections ("Bands", "Masks", etc) are also vertically cramped.

The screenshot shows the problem, displaying an old ".dim" project I opened. The tab titles were cramped before I opened any data though.

Any suggestions are most welcomed!

Many thanks!
Alaric

Would changing your screen resolution help?

Thank you for the suggestion, but unfortch, it didn't help.

It seems to be a problem with some library in CentOS 7. I logged in to the CentOS 7 workstation from a Rocky 8 machine and when I displayed SeaDAS remotely, the widgets were fine.

I'm exploring upgrading the workstations to Rocky 8... ugh...

For anyone that follows, this seems to be a GTK bug, or possibly a font issue.

Using the Tools->Options select the "Appearance" settings, and choose the "Look & Feel" tab.

Selecting an alternate to "GTK+" seems to fix this. The "Nimbus" look and feel look good!
