The file recovery dialog box appears too small to show options for saving, canceling etc. There's no scroll bar to indicate the options. I thought I was stuck until I figured out you could expand the box. Also in the sign up menu for the audacity forums Ubuntu is misspelled to *buntu.

That is intended to be a generic term for any of the Ubuntu flavours (https://www.ubuntu.com/about/about-ubuntu/flavours)

Which version of Audacity (look in "Help > About Audacity").
What is your display resolution? (screen dpi)

Are you referring to this dialog window:

We are aware that high dpi is not yet fully supported, and that several dialog boxes are displayed incorrectly because of that, but this one (in Audacity 2.1.3 on Xubuntu 16.04) looks OK to me.

Yes I am talking about that dialog window. I'm using Fedora 26 if that helps.
