change size interface window

Asked by Oliver Bestwalter on 2013-03-08

Hello,

I just started using Kupfer together with the i3 tiiling window manager and so far I am very pleased - good job :)

I would like to know if it is possible to widen the window of the interface window in order for long text (like urls) to show fully instead of truncated.

Cheers
Oliver

I might have a look at the code myself, if I get around to it, some pointers where I could start maybe?

Thanks

Hi,
I don't see any elegant method for change size.
Simplest is change in file "browser.py" in class LeafModel line:
cell.set_property("width-chars", 45)
to
cell.set_property("width-chars", 90)

For resize whole window you can also increase value of
self.label_char_width = 25
in class MatchView in this same file.

Regards,
Karol
