Thread: Strange systray behaviour in kde 3.5.1

  1. Strange systray behaviour in kde 3.5.1

    Hello list,

    I've been seeing some weird KDE Systray behaviour as of 3.5.1 (since two days,
    more or less): the icons for eg klaptopdaemon or knemo end up on top of my
    screen, instead down in the systray where they're supposed to be. Restarting
    said services helpts to fix the problem, but it's rather weird.

    Anyone else seeing this?

    Thanks,

    Jan

    Hello everyone,

    I had exactly the same behaviour with the same programs.

    Best regards,

    Serge

    I'm seeing this for klaptopdaemon, too, since upgrading to 3.5.1. KNemo is
    working fine at the moment.

    For everybody who was seeing this: I think I have found out the root of the
    problem. At least I have solved the issue for me.

    Searching for the relevant bug in the KDE database I have found this one:
    http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=100177

    The only problem is that it is already resolved in 3.5.1 and that it said
    that the problem only manifested itself if you were using the kompmgr (You
    are using the kompmgr/composite support if you have enabled Transparency
    and Shadows under Desktop/Window Behaviour in the KDE Control Panel).

    I wasn't using the composite, so I could not understand how could this
    happen.
    Then I read your letter and assumed (altough it was not completely clear),
    that the problem only manifested itself for you with the upgrade from
    3.5.0 to 3.5.1. (I have skipped 3.5.0).
    So I read the svn log for kdebase and tried to find the offending change.
    The only one related at all to composite was the one resolving bug 100177.
    Just it did not solve the issue for me even if I have turned on composite.

    So I have tried the only left solution: reverting the offending patch.
    And it seems that it has solved the issue for me.

    I have done all this with my private backport of KDE 3.5.1 to sarge. More
    exactly to the backports on backports.org (which is relevant because the
    X.Org on backports.org is the same as the one in etch and has composite
    too).
    So it may not solve your problems. But I'm hoping it does.
    It would be good if somebody could confirm that this solves the issue with
    Sid too.

    If someone would like to try this out you should just download kdebase
    sources, then add the patch and recompile.
    Patch can be obtained with the next command:
    svn diff -r 499345:499344
    svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/branches/KDE/3.5/kdebase

    You can just add the patch in the debian/patches directory of the sources
    eg with name 29_revert_systraywin.patch and just recompile with 'debuild
    -us -uc' and it should be enough.

    Regards,
    Zsolt
