Unable to resize virtualbox manager window immediately after launch.
There are no such problems with other Qt applications.
What can you advise?

Welcome to Manjaro.

Same here but I never noticed until I saw your post. The window is resizable after some time..
Don't know if anything can be done about it, for now I'm writing it off as an upstream (Oracle/VirtualBox) problem.

Please search the forum before posting - Many issues has been covered already.

Including VirtualBox

Just after an unsuccessful search, I created this topic.
The link you provided does not describe and solve my problem.

No it does not - but it provides several trouble shooting tips and links to the current problems with VirtualBox and graphics.

It is also mention that resizing a VM does not occur immediate - but after a few seconds.

Sure, but OP is not talking about VM windows and their sizing but of the main application window (Oracle VirtualBox Manager). No VM is involved/started - it's a "simple" window.

:bulb: - oh - that went over my head - I am so used to it being the VM window which is not seamless. And I don't watch random videos on youtube - google drive or anywhere.

I think that is local problem - I have never seen it and connect reproduce.

Change Qt theming properties and/or theme using




I use KDE, and that is probably why I don’t have the applications you specified.

That is strange - not you don't kave the apps - but that you cannot resize the window.

I have a system running kde-dev - just installed VB - and I am not able to replicate the issue.
