  • @Maccer, no, it has nothing to do with my dark theme. Here is a image of the standard theme - imgur.com/gQIS0fB

That's a known bug that may be out of the scope of elementary. Anyway the fix is to run the app with GTK_CSD=0. You can do this from the command line:

GTK_CSD=0 playonlinux

And you can also modify the .desktop file so that it works automatically when you open the app. You just need to find the line starting with Exec= and add env GTK_CSD=0 to it so it looks like

Exec=env GTK_CSD=0 /path/to/playonlinux
  • For PlayOnlinux, your option is the solution, but not for SmartGit. Any other suggestions? And thanks for helping! Look at this imgur.com/a/f5boNmc

  • I don't really know... The other possible solutions listed on that bug report involve fixes that will break other stuff and it's difficult to repair. You should post an answer there and hope some dev can help you.
