I had a similar problem with a different app, and it turned out to be something to do with the app itself (fixed in a newer release of the app), as a workaround I made the window go full-screen, and only then I could see the save buttons. So, you could try that and see if it

Hi, but how to make the window go full-screen?

Because I couldn't press the button. :60:

Well, I'm not familiar with "hime", don't even know what that is, could you provide a link to try and install? That way I could check.  Regarding how to make the app go full-screen, check if it provides some keyboard shortcut for that, in some apps, F11 or F12  keys are usually set for that action. Another option is installing wmctrl tool, once installed, launch a terminal and run
Code: [Select]
wmctrl -r ':ACTIVE:' -b toggle,fullscreen where ':ACTIVE:'  is the window you want to maximize. For more details on what you can do with this, see the man page:
https://linux.die.net/man/1/wmctrl
and for some examples, see this tutorial:

Hi,

Thanks for your reply!!

I've tried both F11 and wmcrtl in command line.

And wmcrtl works now, but it still cannot solve my problem.

Here's the video.

My problem is I couldn't save my change in this input method.

I guess there should be a 'save button' below the window, but I couldn't scroll down or find it after I maximize it through
wmcrtl.

The clue is

And I didn't see it happens for other Ubuntu users.

Hence, I don't know if it's the problem of the application or that of the Linux lite system.

And here's the hime application installed:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install hime
Install tutorial(in chinese):



(Because it's chinese input method, I couldn't find any English version tutorial.)

Thanks!

Double clicking on window title bar is normally set to Maximise the window and a right click on the window Title Bar should offer Maximise or Fullscreen options.  Do any of these work ?

Does using the scroll bar on the right of the application window allow you to scroll down ?

Do other applications work as expected ?

Hi,

Thanks for your reply,

None of the above behaviors works, and I also couldn't scroll down the window.
 
Only this application didn't work well, others are perfect.

What happens if you try pressing Alt and F10 together when the window is active ?

That didn't work :60:

Screen Record of my problem
https://www.kapwing.com/videos/62bda348cec9c70ed63e74b8

Hi,

I'm an absolute new to linux lite from Taiwan.

I found that I couldn't maximize the window of hime, so I couldn't save my change.

I've check this post https://www.linuxliteos.com/forums/security-bug-fixes/windows-not-maximizing-all-the-way/

and try to create a new account.

But it didn't work well.

Is there any clue for me to solve this problem?

Or did I misunderstand something?

Thanks!
