    Issue with viewing icons in thunar

    Hello all.
    I upgrade my box from F26 to F27, I am using XFCE environment, the issue after upgrading the system is in Thunar.

    If I have icons with sort names icons will appear fine, but if one of the icons has long name, all the distances between icons will be far, there are two screenshot, before and after changing the name of one iconClick image for larger version.

    Fedora has a broken pango package, you will need to file a bug report at fedora bugzilla.

    Looks like pango is at stable. I will rebuild Thunar and push this fix through. Thanks for posting about this.

    IMO pango is still broken, I also doubt rebuilding Thunar will help the issue.
    Downgrading to older pango fixes the issue (pango-1.40.12-1).

    Re: Issue with viewing icons in thunar

    Yup. Leigh is right, as usual. pango 1.40.13 is still broken. You will need to downgrade to 1.40.12 for Thunar to show icons correctly.

    Please file a bug against pango if you can.

    I couldn't even downgrade pango package, when I try I get this message

    PHP Code:
    ErrorTransaction check error:
      
    file /usr/share/doc/pango/NEWS from install of pango-1.40.12-1.fc27.x86_64 conflicts with file from package pango-1.40.13-2.fc27.i686
