Re: [Geary] Geary title bar on Ubuntu

Hey Khurshid,

Yes I can reproduce this with master under yakkety. Please bring back Unity-specific behaviour in master. Unity (or any compiz session) doesn't play well with gtk-headerbar app. For me,  couple of ugly bugs returned in 16.10.


As a result it is almost impossible to use headerbar app under these compiz sessions. I can also reproduce crash under mate-compiz and flashback-compiz session as well.

And then there is also window resize issue.  Can't properly resize any headerbar app under unity (example gnome-calendar)

11.x series under 16.04 uses traditional titlebar and doesn't have these issues.

Geary is my primary mail client. And I do NOT want it to fall prey to another compiz bug.

Okay, well that's all pretty problematic. Can you please open a bug with these details so I can keep track getting it into 0.12: <>

I'll look at getting some patches to avoid using CSD under Unity, unless someone wants to have a go at it. *nudge nudge*. Avoiding using a HeaderBar might be more invasive. A good place to start is where the workarounds were pulled out in 7b37e26, but there's been a bunch of changes since then and there is some stuff in there I'd rather not bring back.
