I am having problems with the BOINC Manager. Everything works except where the check mark boxes are is incredibly small. Is there a way to expand it so I can see more than part of one?

Here is a screen shot of what I mean.

Nice arrow. :)

Anyway, does the same happens if you try to attach a project using the advanced view?

Thank you, I am very proud of it ;-)

Do you mean if I click on Advanced View and then Tools -> Attach to project...? Because that brings up the same pop up menu and yes it does look the same.

I see. Installing more fonts in your system might solve the problem. Search for it in the Synaptic Package Manager (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synaptic_package_manager).

Why would installing more fonts increase the size of the scroll box?

If the present font is causing this bug in the GUI, then it could be solved by using another one. I've never experienced this bug myself.

Also, you can try with another version of Boinc (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boinc) to see if that helps as well.

I have oddly ran across that problem as well on my Jaunty machines a couple of times. What's more odd is that sometimes it doesn't behave that way. :S

I see. Well I will try and install more fonts and see if that helps. I'll let you know.

No, changing the font does not help. Neither does changing the size of the fonts.
