[GNC-dev] Building 3.4 on Mint 18.3

The summary bar is using stock gtk widgets. So if there's a library dependency 
issue it would be gtk or one of its dependencies.

Note gnucash switched from gtk2 to gtk3 between gnucash 2.6 and 3. This has 
lots of visual side effects because gtk3's default styling is quite different 
from gtk2's.

This shows in lots of ways. Increased padding in various places (like in the 
register as you mention) is one example.

I don't see the summary bar inflation on Fedora 29, though the summary bar 
pop-up is not really consistent in where it pops up. It's usually way too 

What desktop environment are you using on Mint 18.3 ? And is it using Wayland 
or X11 ? If it is Wayland, can you try an X11 session ?
