[xubuntu-users] OObase window on Xubuntu

I am having a problem with window positioning and graphics when running
an OOBase database form on Xubuntu...

When I open the form, 2 forms actually open.
The first of the two forms is a 'design form' which opens in a position
just down and right of the main OOBase screen. The second form, which is
the data entry form, opens a bit further down and to the right.

No matter what I do to set position in in the Base program, the forms
keep coming up this way.

In addition, the data entry form, which is at the forefront, does not
show proper graphics - the size and close buttons are not available at
the upper right corner and the title bar is cut roughly in half.

I have to use Alt-f10 to enlarge the form to work with it.
Ultimately I want the final data form to open as large as the screen
(maximized) without having to do Alt-F10.

Attached is a screen shot. Notice the two forms, and the upper right
corner - missing max, min and close controls.

All other programs on my system, including all other OO programs work
with zero windows positioning or graphics problems. I have posted on
community forum (in OOBase see
) and one response mentioned switching to Gnome.

Any ideas? Thanks
