AKM Window Display

Here is @sandman screen grab from the 2021 Discovery post on AKM.

Now here is mine, I can’t scroll to the botton to get to the buttons, nor can I move the contents by resizing the window. I can however, tab down through the checkboxes, but it does not display the cancel or execute buttons, so there is no way to know if I am on it when I hit enter.

btw, I am on Gnome 43

Thankyou for the correction @pebcak

Here’s what it look like here (on Xfce):

akm

Everything seems to work as well.

Do you have a Gnome 43 spun up to test it?

It’s fine on my end on GNOME 43

AKM

My currently running kernel is:

uname -r
6.0.7-zen1-1-zen

but it is not marked with a * (see the picture in the previous post).

What are the terminal commands to set zen as default?
I use grub-btrfs si it’s added to the grub splash menu.

It was a long time ago that I used grub-btrfs so I don’t quite remember how it handles setting up the Grub boot menu. If it uses the /etc/default/grub so have a look at this thread:

Edit /etc/default/grub, set GRUB_DEFAULT to the ordinal number for zen.
You may need to set also GRUB_DISABLE_SUBMENU=y.

I’ll check with Gnome VM.

OK, looks like working here on Gnome:

akm

No clue why you have issues there. Might be some setting of the DE?

BTW, what does these commands show you:

cat /proc/cmdline
inxi -Saz

In Plasma there are some windows that doesn’t fit the screen on resolutions lower or equal than 768px height. But you can move the window by pressing ALT and drag the mouse. I guess it’ll work on Gnome too.

It’s an Arch install using BTRFS and systemd-boot with EnOS’ repo enabled:

Yad has some problems with wayland, maybe that causes your issue.
Does it work better with xorg?

image

This is in xorg. As you can see I can resize the window width, so I managed to check the zen kernel and headers, and then I went by your screen and tabbed 4 times and hit enter and I seem to have been on the execute button, so it installed zen. I cannot resize the height, so I cannot see the buttons.
In my case, I usually use two finger scroll, but the content does not scroll.

I will soon release a new version of akm. It should fix showing the currently running kernel. Not sure if it affects the other problem though, because so far I haven’t been able to reproduce it here.

What tests can I run for you that may help to identify the cause?
I am back on Wayland and won’t need AKM for now I have zen kernel as default.
Someone else must be seeing this, even though my Gnome setup is heavily customized, so let me know.
