Problem with screen resolution on Ubuntu 17.0

#1

Hi, when running knime 3.5.2 on Ubuntu 17.10 under wayland, the (here full HD) screen size
is not correctly detected. This results in the splash screen being not centered (instead shifted
towards the upper left corner). Also, many buttons in dialog boxes are outside
the window, which reduces usability. After reading https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=492433
I can confirm that ./knime --launcher.GTK_version 2 results in correct calculations
and fixes the issue. Hope that helps someone, yours, Steffen
