Thanks to all of you and esp. mr Kaskamanidis for the Greek u.i.
Two problems I've noticed while experimenting with VUE 3 (might be a consequence of font and sentence length differences between the original and the translation):
1. The context (right-click) menu of a node that is positioned on the lower part of the VUE window is not 100% visible.
2. The "Keywords" panel of the Node info window is partly hidden and cannot be accessed.
Thanks for pointing out these problems. The pop-up menu problem can be worked around by making the right-click higher in the map. To get the context menu for nodes a node must be selected but you don't have to right-click directly on the node; you can click anywhere on the map. This is a known bug and I've tried to fix it but it seems to be a problem in Java Swing (under Windows only) and isn't straightforward to fix.
The problem in the Keywords panel is, as you realized, due to the button becoming wider in Greek and not laying itself out correctly. A work-around for this problem is to make the Info window wider. I'll open a bug report for this.
Greek text on title bars appears as boxes on Ubuntu Karmic Koala(see screenshot). Is there a particular font that should be available by the OS? (the MS Fonts package is already installed anyway)
The problem has been accidentally solved on my laptop. I remember having used Computer janitor (a disk cleaning software included in Ubuntu) and removing (among others) some replacement Fonts (like Tahoma replacement). This reminds me of a similar problem (of squares instead of letters) appearing in Wine on Linux using the Greek locale, which is also fixed by replacing Wine fonts with the ones copied from the Windows Fonts directory.
