[Linux] Sprite Editor slice window disappears when trying to change slicing type



How to reproduce:
1. Open the user's originally attached project ('')
2. Open 'unity' Sprite, make sure the mode is set to Multiple and open Sprite Editor
3. Click on Slice and try to change the type
4. Observe that the Slice window disappears
5. Click on 'Gird by Cell Size'

Expected results: The slice window does not disappear and clicking on 'Grid by Cell Size' changes the slice option
Actual results: The slice window disappears and clicking on 'Grid by Cell Size' does not change the slice option

Reproducible with: 2019.2.0a8, 2019.2.0a11
Not reproducible with: 2017.4.24f1, 2018.3.11f1, 2019.1.0b9, 2019.2.0a7

Reproducible again in 2019.2.5f1 and in 2018.4.8f1.

  1. Resolution Note (fix version 2019.3):

    Fix some popup menus losing focus and closing on LinuxEditor.

    This still appears in the recent LTS version(2019.4.1f1).
    I did a workaround, slicing the sprite in a dummy project on 2020.1.0b13 and
    copying the asset files to the main project.

    This issue is not fixed and persists in the new 2019.4.0f1 (LTS) version.
    I tested out some versions i had on my computer to see where the issue exists.

    Reproducable in 2019.3.15f1, 2019.4.0f1(LTS)
    Not Reproducable in 2019.2.19f1, 2020.1.0b12 and 2020.2.0a15

    They fixed this issue in some versions, but then it randomly reappears in subsequent versions.
    Seems like Linux users are forced to switch to unstable channels because of a simple GUI bug.

    I have the same problem for creating a new tile palette, the create window disappears when trying to change grid type. (Manjaro 20.0.3, Kernel 5.6.17)

    So we're getting bug fixes AND regressions in the 2018.4 LTS release? I gave up on Unity dev months ago because of Linux editor issues; I figured by dropping back to an LTS release I should be able to at least not hit weird UI show-stoppers like this...

    I'd love to reactivate my subscription, but come on. If I have to keep switch projects to less stable versions of Unity just so I can do fundamental things like slicing sprites... this isn't going to last nearly as long as it did last time.
