App windows don't fit on eeepc screen?

Asked by Anatelostaxus (1418 points ) June 7th, 2011

I’m using Ubuntu 10.4 on my asus eeepc, (for those of you who don’t know). It always occurs that when a window is maximised, it inevitably starts to jump up and down whenever I click anywhere on the window. In this condition, the only way I can get a command to actually work is to aim the cursor over the command button I want, click a couple times, keeping the cursor in that chosen positions and expect the second click to hit the button after the window has shifted up and down again. Quite pathetic. Can’t work like this. What to do?

@Anatelostaxus Hmm, not super fammiliar with Ubuntu, maybe different video drivers? Sounds liek somehting is incompatible.

Now, which Eee PC do you have? If it’s a netbook-sized one, your screen is only 1024×600 anyways, as opposed to the standard 1024×768.

Even worse is that sometimes companies try to fudge it with uncontrollable auto-scrolling, which renders any controls near the edge of the screen unusable as they will always be a moving target. The Eee 700-series was by far the worst offender in that regard, and earned Asus my eternal contempt.

It’s not a Ubuntu thing; it’s an Asus thing ;)
