Sub_title: list exceeeds screen, not resizable

When trying to select my wlan , the list in berlin is so long, that I can't see alll entries and never reach the fields for WPA key.
This happens under LUPU , with Slacko I didn't get the problem.
The window refuses to be resized.

You can move the window up by this method.

Alt button hold.
Left mouse button click on window and hold.
Move mouse around.

Placement of mouse pointer is important.
The location of the pointer, is the limit of movement past edge of screen.
The window will move the full range of the mouse pointer on screen.
Just move, to different location of mouse pointer, to change movement amount with window.

You may find that the Network Wizard may work better for you.
menu->Setup->Internet Connection Wizard->wired or wireless Lan->Network wizard

I have found, in trying to help people, that the things they do not tell you, are usually the clue to solving the problem.

Thank you for reporting this problem. I am the person currently responsible for maintaining lucid pup 528 and am creating an upgrade, "". I would like to include a fix for the problem by copying the precise pup version of SNS into the upgrade.

If you care to, you might download lupu- from here:
and use it, then install the attached pet package by downloading it and then left-clicking once on the .pet file. Click OK on both pop-ups.

On second thought, that may be more than you are ready for. You could just wait a week or so until I upload a new version of "" that will contain precise's sns script file. (The problem with the attached package is that it needs other files not in the old lupu528.)
Description  SNS script from precise pup for use in lucid pup (but not the old lupu528)
