Weird layout after fresh install

After installing CQRlog on a fresh Ubuntu 18.04 from PPA I got a very weird layout (see picture). Probably a simple preference thingy. Can some one point me in the right direction?

Hi!
What window manager is in use? Can you switch to another window manager for test?

You can also try Petr's new beta 2.3.0-002. Look at https://www.cqrlog.com/node/2170
Or my test version 2.3.0-203 http://www.saunalahti.fi/~sakny/bin/cqrlog2/

to see if those make any difference.

i did have a similar problem

i did have a similar problem some month ago.
at that time it was a mismatch between using QT , GTK and GTK2.
i found a email where i solved the problem by changing an enviroment variable UNSET QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE".

you should search in this direction and have a look in the environment variables GTK*, GTK2* and QT*.

Hi Andreas,

Hi Andreas,

thank you for the tip. No luck setting the variable. Still the same... :-(

Hi Saku,

Hi Saku,

Ehm, the default window manager in Ubuntu Desktop 18.04?

It's a little better, but not yet what it should be.

What version of GTK do you

What version of GTK do you have?

Lazarus programs may need (I'm not sure but by fast googling) GTK2. GTK# is not supported fully yet.
My computer (Fedora28) has both gtk2 and gtk3

[Solved]

Okay, after tried almost everything I could think of (even downgrading to Ubuntu 16.04, which didn't solve my layout problem) it turns out to be a simple preference. When Ubuntu detects a high resolution (which it choose itself upon installation) it will set display scaling to a higher value then 1.
When scaling is higher then 1 the layout of CQRlog will be weird. Not only CQRlog by the way, more applications suffer from this.

Put scaling back to 1 and everything is back to normal.
