PlayOnLinux windows/dialogs display incorrectly on Elementary OS Juno

I installed POL 4.2.12 on Elementary OS 5 Juno.  Each window/dialog of POL displays twice with one window inside the other.  When I bring up the install dialog.  The inner window for that window does not display all the controls on the window.  I am specifically trying to get to the "Install a non-listed program" link but because it is not visible I am unable to get to it.  Does anyone know how to get the windows/dialogs displaying correctly?  Or any other suggestions on how to install a non-listed program without having access to the link?  If I could just maximize the dialog I am sure I could see all the controls.  Any help appreciated.

The Same Issue with Ubuntu 18.04.1 With Gnome-Shell default.

The problem is probably linked to the graphic library used with python. That's fixed in v5 (in development) but I don't know if any dev can fix it in v4 for now. We can't test on all user's distributions

Same problem on a fresh installation of Fedora 29. Is there a workaround?

I have the same problem on Elementary OS Juno 5.0. I have just registered here to post this message that this is an ongoing issue. Hope it gets solved. Thanks.

Should be fixed with POL 4.3.4

POL 4.3.4 did not fixed this issue, Quentin. On January the 17th, the problem still persisted in Elementary OS Juno 5.0.

Does it concern all windows?

rbelo Friday 25 January 2019 at 1:56

Yes, it does.

Is there any way to attach a pic or a pdf to a reply so as to better illustrate what is happening (sorry, noob here)?

No sorry... Can you try to host same on an image sharing platform? Otherwise, you can send them by email

Sorry for the delay. Just emailed you some pics.
