VLC media player's about dialog has no close (x) button
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When I open VLC media player and go to About to see the version number, there is no x on the popup to close it like in Linux Mint so I have to press Esc.

Edit: I should have mentioned I experienced this on Solus Mate.

Can't reproduce issue.

Edit: We're thinking it's a WM issue. @feskyde can reproduce.

I have the same issue. Also using the MATE edition.

This also affects the about dialog for MATE Terminal, Transmission and Disks. Same thing happens for most system apps like Atril, Caja, Calculator etc.

In the comments here, when a comment is edited, it should be possible to click the "Edited" tag beside the time stamp to view edit history. And in comment history view, maybe add some green and red highlighting to show which characters/words were added or removed. Thanks.

@mate-user I fail to see how that is relevant to this issue. And no.

hi @ikey can this be fixed for the next iso snapshot ?

This bug still exists after a fresh install of Solus Mate 2017.04.18.0 and installing all updates and restarting.

This issue is old, but I see that it is still present.
Just tried this on MATE with VLC 3.0.8 and found that the problem are the themes.

The close button is missing if these themes are used:

  • "Black Mate" and "Black Mate Border".
  • "Green Laguna" and "Green Laguna Border".
  • "Menta" and "Menta Border."

When switching to other theme the close button appears.

Well none of those themes are the default so not gonna worry about it.

mate-user changed the task status from Invalid to Resolved.Aug 30 2019, 4:10 PM

Looks like it's fixed for me now, thanks!
