Double child window in applications It's happening in various applications, not only with mysql workbench, I tried to open a bug report, but I don't know where the elementary os bug report is hosted.


Which elementaryOS version are you using? Seems like an issue with Pantheon, therefore you might try to reinstall pantheon-desktop without having to wipe your hdd/ssd.

  • I'm using loki version and it's a clean installation – Leandro Jacques Jul 16 '18 at 13:51
  • Is it also occuring when you use preinstalled applications? Maybe you might give another example so I can try to replicate the error? – awake Jul 17 '18 at 21:16
  • It's happening with PlayOnLinux too – Leandro Jacques Jul 23 '18 at 16:50
  • Same problem with transcribe! (a commercial closed source software with a binary built on ubuntu 14.04 according to seventhstring.com/xscribe/linux_distros_86.html ) – artm Sep 13 '18 at 13:07

There's a shell script (/etc/profile.d/gtk-csd.sh) that exports GTK_CSD=1. I would highly recommend not deleting this shell script as it makes all of the dialog boxes look a bit weird and breaks the open file/folder dialog in some cases.
