Minor issues with 22.04 theme

Just wanted to share a couple of things I found strange in 22.04’s GUI so far. The first is oval window controls when running Angry IP Scanner:

And the second is less of a possible bug than it is design choice, but I have found the lock screen to have low contrast against certain backgrounds, which could make it hard to read for some:

Marco already told us that lock screen is being resolved:



Thanks. I read that post but never caught that part. I wonder what causes the weird titlebar buttons?

I’ve noticed the same stretched window controls in the eclipse snap. Is this IP scanner also a snap or eventually made with Java SWT?

Edit: yes it is made with SWT

It might be really related to SWT. Eventually, if this does not happen with Adwaita, this could be related to how Yaru draws the window controls (https://github.com/ubuntu/yaru/blob/master/gtk/src/default/gtk-3.0/_tweaks.scss#L10). On the other hand this issue is new and we didn’t change the way we draw window controls for 4 years so maybe it is related to a gtk3 minor version that changed and SWT was somehow not flexible enough to any gtk3 changes.

Edit: yes this also happens with adwaita


For the low contrast on the lock screen: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/yaru-theme/+bug/1965627

Please open a bug for the oval buttons in Java apps on Launchpad.

This is not the place to report bugs.


Bug filed in Launchpad. Thanks.
