For some time, I've started UEX up and it opens in a tiny little window that requires manual resizing each time. (Occasionally, it will open with a more appropriate window, but not often, and I have not been able to figure out what does it.

I *do* know that there's something in my settings doing it, as it opens properly if I remove my hidden .idm folder from my home directory in which UEX stores the configuration in a series of files. I just have not yet been able to find which setting it is. When I restore my directory, all is well. I just have too many custom settings to lose if I trash the directory and start again.

I was hoping someone would know the specific line that needs to be changed so that I can keep everything else the same.

If not, I'll blow the configuration away and start all over again.

I'm currently running 16.1.0.12 on Ubuntu 14.04.5 64-bit.

Thanks!

From looking at what changes in my ~/.idm directory when I open UEx, resize the window, and exit, it looks like the window position is stored in one of the following items of the "~/.idm/uex/uex.conf_vol" file's "[Settings]" section:

- State=
- FramesPerspectiveNew=

There are both a uex.conf and a uex.conf_vol file, but the uex.conf file is unchanged when I move/resize the window.

Maybe try renaming the uex.conf_vol file and see if things start working. I'd also make sure that the permissions of the ~/.idm directory and all the files in it look correct.
