The gcommit per file commit window not usable

Asked by mrainb0w on 2011-12-12

When I do bzr gcommit, a window is shown in which I can enter the per file commit messages. But this per file commit window is too small. And I am unable to make it big (and usable). My environment is given below:

$ bzr version
Bazaar (bzr) 2.4.1
  Python interpreter: /usr/bin/python 2.7.2
  Python standard library: /usr/lib/python2.7
  Platform: Linux-3.0.0-13-generic-x86_64-with-Ubuntu-11.10-oneiric
  bzrlib: /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/bzrlib
  Bazaar configuration: /home/anna/.bazaar
  Bazaar log file: /home/anna/.bzr.log

Weeird. Isn't there a maximize button in the window title bar?

I have attached screenshot in the bug page

In the screenshot, look at the text window just below "Commit message for storage/heap/hp_delete.c" and above "Global Commit Message". There is the problem.

Now I can see the problem. That commit messages for file are not even available in my bzr-gtk version (Bazaar GTK 0.101.0dev0) so I don't think I can help.

per-file commit messages are available in bzr-gtk 0.101.0 but you need
top explicitly enable them.

This particular issue is a bug. I suspect it was introduced when bzr-gtk
was ported to gtk3.

Cheers,

Jelmer

Goyo, to enable it please put "per_file_commits = on" in the [DEFAULT] section of the ~/.bazaar/bazaar.conf file. Jelmer, my whole team would be glad if this problem is fixed or a workaround provided. Thanks for the support. I'll follow this in the bug page.
