Build issues


General things

  • The 'Do you really want to activate "Slow keys"?' dialog is not obvious. You have a combobox down there where you can deactivate all accessx features & gestures, but it's a bit unclear should I press yes or no to deactivate the features... (teprrr)


  • There is no magnification shown but some garbage fractal-like patterns (Icwiener 03:34, 10 November 2007 (CET))


  • Selection from Phrase Book should insert into Edit field (as set in settings) but does not. (Icwiener 03:34, 10 November 2007 (CET))



  • panel_settings.png 16x16 is missing from crystalsvg preventing the installation of kdeartwork from the kdesvn-build script (marsmissions)


Screen Locker (krunner_lock)

  • unlocking the session is impossible as I get "wrong password" (logixoul) (confirmed by goliath23)
    • prolly installed as user - kcheckpass requires setuid root
      • It works fine for me. (frank95com)
  • enabling and disabling capslock in the "unlock session" dialog doesn't hide the red "Warning: capslock enabled" label (logixoul)
    • Works fine for TunaTom and frank95com [rev 731731]
  • running krunner_lock as a command seems to garble the screen but not actually lock it. (frank95com and jstubbs)


  • With compositing enabled, a 100% transparent background at is always black. KWin bug? (jstubbs) (confirmed by annma) (confirmed by TunaTom)
    • Yes, the ARGB visual code is disabled in Konsole. Because ARGB and QWidget::scroll don't like each other. Here's a patch I'm using to enable ARGB and work around the bug QWidget::scroll hits: (Vir)
  • With compositing enabled, the selection foreground is the configured background color with no transparency and the selection background is the configured foreground with configured background transparency. Transparancy should switch with the colors or be disabled altogether for selections. (jstubbs)
  • None of the Alt+<letter> menu shortcuts work when the terminal has focus (apaku) (confirmed by TunaTom)
  • None of the Top-Level Alt+<letter> menu shortcuts work when the terminal has focus. When a menu is opened, the shortcuts inside work. (TunaTom)
    • I can confirm it (FiNeX)
  • Wish: Could the links be not clickable as an option? it really goes on the way as it makes copy/paste too difficult when a link is present in the copied text (annma)
    • The ideal for me here is that links are clickable if and only if a key (CTRL, for instance) is being held down at the time. At all other times, links are not treated any differently to any of the other text(SSJ_GZ).
    • It is a good idea (FiNeX)
  • Wish: can the New Tab icon be back?
    • Please add your nick if you want it back! (annma, SSJ_GZ, frank95com, Tyl3r, yuriy, yojoe, winterz, FiNeX)
    • Add your nick here if you don't want it because it's wasting precious space for the tabs (Vir)
  • crashes when clicking on a link, but konqueror opens successfully ([C]167
    • Fixed in kdelibs --TMG 21:27, 6 November 2007 (CET) (frank95com)
  • Changes made with "Edit Current Profile::Appearance" are not saved. (JRT) fixed in 737991
  • "Edit Font" isn't restricted to only monospace fonts. (JRT) (fixed in rev 738000)
  • When an URL is underlined by hovering mouse cursor over it the underlining stays even when the URL moves away. (yess)
  • If a word is wrapped across two lines, then selecting the line will add a space where the split occurs when the text is added to the X clipboard (using Copy works fine, though). Relatedly, clicking on a split URL will cut off everything after the split(SSJ_GZ). See

konsole-split-line.png and konsole-split-line2.png

  • If you delselect the "show menu bar in new windows" option from the "edit profile" dialog and you click "Apply" (or "ok") the menubar will be hidden even in the current konsole window. The result is the opposite in the contrary situation (you have the menubar not visible and you select "show menu bar..."). When you hide the menubar in this way, the popup menu with the right click doesn't show the menuitem for show the menubar. If you hide the menubar with the option on the menu (EDIT->HIDE MENU BAR), the popup will have the option "SHOW MENU BAR". See (FiNeX)
  • When copying several lines of text and pasteing into another application, all newlines in the copied text are missing (jstubbs)
  • With beta5 I don't get a shell, but just black windows (Trigger7).
  • Konsole freeze for 10 seconds after click tab button with compiz active,konsole become and stay dark..but active (Meskalamdug)


  • As soon as a properties dialog for a file was opened within Dolphin, it isn't possible anymore to close any Dolphin window - no matter whether this was the window where the properties were opened from or not. Doesn't happen with Konqueror's properties windows, so it seems to be related to Dolphin. (eliasp)
  • Restoring a deleted item from the trash crashes dolphin/konqueror (mbiebl)
    • Fixed by Sergej Melderis and David Faure (Peter Penz)
  • The "Desktop" and "Root" icons in dolphin have a completely different style than the usual folder icon. (mbiebl)
  • Dolphin has no proper icon in taskbar/window decoration. (mbiebl)
    • fixed. (logixoul)
  • Select icon in folder/file properties doesn't show the icons of the selected categories at first. Only after changing the combobox the icons are loaded. (bbroeksema)(I can confirmed that [TunaTom r732119])
  • Edit Locations (F6) doesn't work as expected. Currently it only switches to edit mode and focuses the location bar if it's in navigation mode, otherwise it doesn't do anything. (Mogger)
    • For me, it switches from navigation to edit mode and focuses as well [TunaTom r732119]
      • Yeah same for me, sorry for being unclear. Edited now. (Mogger)
        • Thanks for the report, this issue is fixed now :-) (Peter Penz)
  • no option for 'select on hover' (emilsedgh)
  • cannot show thumbnails (it was showing the thumbnails when konqueror was unable to show them, so seems a different bug with konqueror's "cannot show preview" bug, also file properties->preview hasnt the preview anyymore) (emilsedgh)
    • fixed by mlaurent (logixoul)
  • "Empty Trash" does not show up in the file menu when viewing the trash (yuriy)
    • Application menus should never be changed dynamically. So an option would be showing "Empty Trash" always. From my point of view using the context menu is enough (at least I'm not aware about any file manager that has "Empty Trash" as part of the file-menu). For further discussions please mail me directly ( or just use the kfm-devel mailing list. Thanks! (Peter Penz)
    • How about showing a colored bar on the top of the filelist with button "empty trash", like OS X has? Imho it would make it clearer that you're in a special folder and it'd make it easier to empty your trash from there. (teprrr)
  • Several of the F1-F11 do not show up in the "Configure Shortcuts" dialog (e.g. F4) (gissi)
  • Inconsistency (IMHO): F4 in dolphin behaves different than in Konqueror (terminal panel vs. terminal in new window) (gissi)
    • I've moved this entry to the Konqi-issue-list, as the Konqi behavior should be fixed (Peter Penz)
  • It can only configure mimetype associations individually via properties on a file, and later clicking on a small settings button. To configure mimetypes globally, and not file related, it has to be done with Konqueror settings, as there is no such entry in SystemSettings. IMHO Dolphin or SystemSettings should also get the Konqueror's File association settings panel. (q3xr2).
  • When moving a hidden file to trash this file is not shown in trash. However, it is in ~/.local/share/Trash, so it's not lost. The problem is probably that kiotrash ignores hidden files. (gissi, confirmed by JustinNoel, luca_b and logixoul)
    • Fixed by Sergejs Melderis and David Faure (Peter Penz)
  • When you delete Trash from sidebar, you can't get it back. (amp)
    • Fixed (Peter Penz)
  • Dolphin crashes if you try to change the icon of a folder you don't have writing permissions in. It displays a proper error message and crashes on confirmation. (backtrace: (Goliath23) (fixed)
  • Dolphin don't exec the shell scripts,of course syntax is good and those scripts has correct perms,double click and open scripts with kwrite instead of exec it.(Meskalamdug)
  • Dolphin don't open the asc files,kgpg "small icon" appear but kpgp don't run for ask pass and decrypt the file,same thing on konqueror (Meskalamdug)
  • Dolphin has some problems with video preview 60759728gm7.jpg (Meskalamdug) Already reported at 'KDElibs - Misc'
  • Dolphin does not show (unless you manually refresh the view) changes to a files:

- Modification time
- Permissions
- Size (e.g. when watching a folder where a file is being downloaded)
(and obviously, neither does Konqueror), leading to stale information being presented as current. This is a feature that used to work way back in KDE3.3. I think we have all the infrastructure now, so it would be nice to see this regression fixed for KDE4 :)

  • Dolphin cannot open folders containing a #. When attempted, the "folder tree at top" only shows file:// and an error message is shown at bottom. When it's changed to showing an adress field, the name is cut at the #, indicating that it believes that # means a comment. (talavis) (fixed)
  • Cannot edit Volume names in "Places" sidebar in Dolphin, while it's possible for folders. (Tyl3r)
  • When switching to a different partition, the free space indicator in the bottom right is not updated until a paint is forced (jstubbs)
    • Confirmed here (r737962)(SSJ_GZ)
      • Confirmed + fixed (Peter Penz)
  • Dolphin crash when i try to change Desktop folder icon (Meskalamdug)


Critical issues:

  • The panel doesn't remember the position of the clock plasmoid. (mbiebl)
  • with the plasma toolbox, clicking "add widgets" but releasing the mouse button elsewhere still activates it. (jstubbs)
    • releasing elsewhere no longer activates but the button stays depressed after release if the toolbox disappears while the mouse button is still down (jstubbs)
  • hovering the plasma toolbox for the first time after cleaning config makes buttons slide in from TOP-LEFT rather than TOP-RIGHT. Every subsequent hovering works correctly. (logixoul)
  • can't move panel plasmoids. (logixoul)
  • can't put pager or systray on panel. (logixoul)
  • systray on desktop has no border. (logixoul)
  • MinimizeAnimation doesn't animates correctly to the taskbar, with Kicker it works fine (Plasma should tell KWin where the taskbar-entry is) (boom1992)
  • krunner hangs on each and every letter typed in after some time working in a kde4 desktop. May be related to manual killing the strigidaemon which goes nuts on CPU usage. Output from console: (apaku)
  • Colorpicker and Kickoff plasmoid don't have context menu, so they can't be removed. (TunaTom)
    • context menus are going to be replaced by hover-action-icons (ivan)
      • it's very anoying (and ugly), that the hover-action-icons show up whenever you hover a plasmoid, they should only show up when a button is hold too, e.g. ALT (yojoe)
    • Lancelot now has context menu and is (re)movable (emilsedgh) patch already being reviewed on panel-devel
  • Running plasma with QT_FLUSH_PAINT I can see lots of extra repainting. For example the panel is very bad. (rich) the major offenders have been fixed in plasma, the remaining ones are in Qt and being fixes (aside from the taskbar which is due for a rewrite)
  • Plasma is shown in the Alt+Tab windowlist, this should not happen (especially since switching to this app then does nothing visually except lose focus from the toplevel window) (BCoppens)
  • The date format is not affected by the settings in KControl.<JRT>
  • System Tray Widget doesn't work correctly: The Widget doesn't size itself to hold the contents. The contents seem to have the wrong X display priority (they are always on top). It (the contents, not the widget) interacts with windows (snap). The contents are only displayed on Desktop #1. When something triggers a refresh of something, then the SystemTray widget resizes and looks correct but the icons are still not working correctly. They are only on DeskTop #1 and always on top. <JRT> reported on
  • The Application Launcher Widget seems to be stuck in the middle of the screen; I can't drag it. In this position with 1024x768 the menu window does not open correctly. It extends beyond the top of the screen and is cut off. <JRT>
  • The Clock on the Panel slides over and winds up on top of the TaskBar on the Panel.<JRT> (please check for duplicates)
  • Adding a Widget to the desktop and then logging out, and logging back in results in a corrupted desktop. The background disappears, the Widgets move far from where they were originally placed and the Desktop Toolbox moves to the center of the desktop. The only work around for me was to log into a gnome session, delete the contents of the ~/.kde4 directory, and then log back into the kde session. However this is not a permanent fix because ending the session still corrupts the desktop after adding a Widget. A snapshot of what happens: snapshot1.png <marsmissions> (confirmed - jstubbs)
  • Plasma crash on startup on mac book pro 3rd (nv8600GT, c2d 2.2ghz) gen using kubuntu. Composite is at off in kwin settings and this kde4 is from svn. The last line in xterm before the crash windows (witch freez the whole Xserver) is plasma(7094) Plasma::Corona::addContainer: loading of container "desktop" failed. <Elv13> (rebuild plugins before reporting errors)
  • Configuration dialogs do not appear on the current desktop, they only do in the desktop where plasma has been started on. (ruphy)
  • Logging out of KDE4 session, and then logging back in results in the desktop toolbox disappearing. Killing plasma VIA terminal and the running it again does nothing to effect this, is related to the "adding a plasmoid to the desktop, loging in and loging out and your desktop being messed up bug" added by me earlier. It appears to be moved to a position of the screen out side of the actual viewable area. Is resolved by deleted ~/.kde4 directory contents and logging back in. Terminal Output available here: (marsmissions)
  • Battery meter plasmoid does not appear properly, as well as digital clock and analog clock (possibly others) complete terminal output available here: screenshot here: snapshot2.png dragging them across the desktop causes a trail to be formed (appears to be the desktop backgound except shifted more than it should is visible in the screenshot) (marsmissions)
  • Plasmoid configuration does nothing with battery meter, and analog clock (size does not change), and possibly others. complete terminal output available here: (marsmissions)
  • When selecting a background image the file dialog blocks all of plasma (fregl)


  • The network plasmoid does not automatically select the active network connection (It uses eth0 by default, but I use wlan0 mostly) (mbiebl)
    • A list of physical devices (Solid?) would be nice here, but it should be also possible to select a userdefined virtual interface (like tunnel devices). (eliasp)
  • The Lock/Logout Widget has rectangular buttons -- should have square? IAC, icons should be centered on buttons. <JRT>
  • Digital clock is useless by its inconfigurability: Rather than a disorganized list of timezones, no, I want a) the date underneath, b) a less fancy digital font instead of the current one with the distracting 'line' in the middle. (BCoppens)
  • notes applet should be resized when the text is bigger that current size (emilsedgh)
  • Further to the above: the "Note size" configuration option for notes appears to be non-functional.
  • The dictionary plasmoid doesn't show the results. (Mogger)
    • Looks like fixed in r732655, shows the result, but first changes the box with animation, then changes the result text, also its a bit slow (emilsedgh)

Glitches in playground:

  • Welcome to KDE widget causes graphical glitches [1] and crashes plasma when removed[2] with kDebug output "Plasma::LayoutItem::setLayout: layout removed from under us. expect crashes". (All other widgets behave normally)


  • Analog Clock: add text & seconds indicator. Change size to 400. Is so SLOW that it easily skips 3 seconds per redraw! (Core2 Duo 2.20GHz, Quadro FX 570M, nvidia binary drivers, Thinkpad T61p) (BCoppens)
    • is this the equivalent of "it hurts when i do this, doctor?" ;)
  • Time Zone list should be redundant in configuration since the TZ should be set in KControl. All that is needed is an option to display it. Note, I think that this is the standard timezone list. If what is wanted is an option to display a TZ other than the user's TZ, this should be a separate context menu item. <JRT>
    • of course you need a list of timezones what if you want to show timezones other than the one you are in or extra ones set elsewhere in kde?
    • What about UTC+ and UTC- Regions avaliable in the timezones to pick from, i hate to search for a "close" city if I know perfectly what UTC zone I want.
    • Why not adding a 'quick filter' line to the TZ select dialog like it's available in the dialog for adding plasma applets. Would make it much more faster and easier finding the needed city/location. (eliasp)

Plasma - Kickoff 'Start Menu'

  • leave -> logout opens a dialog with several options, instead of logging out or asking for confirmation - ( (fred)
  • Unable to resize the kickoff menu. (mbiebl)
  • Kickoff opens konqueror when clicking on an entry under "My Computer". (mbiebl)
    • Seems to be fixed... Can anyone confirm that, please? (r 735451). (frank95com)
  • In kickoff, clicking the utilities menu and then clicking back again shows the top menu scrolled to the top rather than where it was before clicking utilities. (jstubbs) (confirmed - goliath23)
  • When opened by clicking on a link in "Storage" for example, Konqueror shows the contents of "/" in an unnamed tab. Right of that tab is another one showing the correct location. If you click that tab, konqeuror crashes. (goliath23)
  • Kickoff: Clicking the applications tab, when the tab is open should return it to top-level.Current catalog-memory is a good feature however, so keep that aswell. (eirik_)
  • Kickoff does not start firefox. It loads the .desktop file in kwrite (amp)
    • Probably a bad install on your side, it works well here (annma)
    • Also here. (frank95com)
    • When I use kicker menu to open firefox in KDE4 svn, I can start firefox, so I think it is really a problem with Kickoff
  • Kickoff crash plasma desktop after open application/desktop(Meskalamdug)
    • If this is referring to the crash upon opening utilities->desktop, it is a qt bug which has been fixed in qt-copy and presumably upstream as well (jstubbs)
  • Additions to Favourites are not saved between logins (jstubbs)
  • I don't understand what Search: is for. If I search for Blinken, instead of launching Blinken it runs Konqueror with a Google search for Blinken.
  • German umlauts ("Ü" and such) are not properly displayed in menu items if they occour at the beginning of a word. This is the case in Development->Translation (Entwicklung->Übersetzung) which is "Ubersetzung" then. If the menu item is chosen, the title of the next page is correctly written as "Übersetzung" but the menu items again are "Ubersetzungswerkzeug" and such. (Icwiener 13:51, 17 November 2007 (CET))
  • The title of the Favorites page seems to be untranslatable. The tab is translated properly but the title stays in english (the po file is at 100%) (Icwiener 13:51, 17 November 2007 (CET))
  • Plasma crash when clicking on a recently used item from kickoff - attached backtrace here: (null__)
  • Switch user from kickoff exec "launch application" (Meskalamdug)
  • Handling of storage devices needs some loving:
    • When clicking on an unmounted storage device, nothing happens (eliasp)
    • When right-clicking -> eject on a device that is mounted by another user nothing happens - KDE3.5/Dolphin4 displays at least the HAL error message about being unable to umount it due to missing privileges. (eliasp)
    • The bars representing the disk usage should have a little more space on the right side. They currently seem to be cropped: kick-off-storage-devices.png (eliasp)

System Settings

  • systemsettings has no menu entry. Typing it into kickoffs search entry doesn't find/list it either. (mbiebl)
    • I have it in Favorites and on bottom of Applications - However the search field ignores it. (annma)
  • When clicking on "Appearance", it seems to delete a file. (Mogger)
    • When I select "Appearance" in "System Settings", three "Progress Dialog" boxes pop up.<JRT>
  • Missing "get root rights" button on pages like Date/Time, thus its impossible to change such settings (apaku)
    • I confirm this (FiNeX) Me too (Tyl3r)
  • Searching something doesn't seem to limit the displayed modules or highlight any of the search results. Fixed post-RC1, r740484 User:Bille
  • no settings to be changed for keyboard shortcuts - everything is empty (nixternal, mactalla)
    • This is probably a function of your system configuration. IIUC,It reads an X11 file. <JRT>
  • When clicking e.g. "Appearance", the System Settings window doesn't get resized. This causes very ugly (horizontal and vertical) scrollbars (gissi)
    • Layouts are awful in general, Regional & Language for example is unusable. (annma) Improved Language tab svn r738336 (annma)
  • Default size for the text beneath the icons is too small. I see stuff like 'ppearanc' instead of 'Appearance' and 'ccesibilit'. Some other texts are wide enough, like 'Splash Screen'. (BCoppens)
  • Changing the style to Oxygen changes all windows, EXCEPT the System Settings (BCoppens)
    • I have the oxygen style also in systemsettings. Try to check again, please. (frank95com)
      • Hmmm, now that the default style is oxygen and I try to switch to good old plastik, I have the same issue: everything switches to plastik except the system settings. Strange (BCoppens)
  • Regional & Language::Time & Dates (should that be "Time & Date"?) doesn't have USA style date formats in "Short date format": MM.DD.YYYY & mM.dD.YYYY and should also have formats with only 2 digits for year: YY.
    • Invalid: works, set yourself MM:DD:YY for example in the field and today's short date will be 11:18:07. (annma)
  • systemsettings has no menu - there is no way (for normal users) to start the help for it. (fregl)
  • The systemsettings toolbar can be hidden but there is no way to get it back. (fregl)
  • The layout on the "connection preferences" is shuffled, see (mer nov 14 20:18:36 CET 2007, FiNeX) r737479 annma & FiNeX
  • Regression on the "change your face" dialog. When you select an icon, it will not be focused even if it is selected because after clicking "OK" the image is loaded to the user configuration window in Systemsettings. See (FiNeX) fixed r737619 (annma)
  • I don't find where to set the default Spelling dictionary (annma)
  • After clicking "OK" on the change password dialog box from the "Password & User Account" section in systemsettings, the dialog box will hang. See for more informations (FiNeX)
  • Need a real fix for which is only a workaround. Uncomment the Q_ASSERT to see the problem.


  • KWin tryes to activate compositioning on my VIA card, and thus, freezes everything , no backtrace since everything hangs. (tomaz)
  • Windows are not fully redrawn when minimizing and then restoring with OpenGL compositing in use (jstubbs)
    • I've rebuilt with qt-copy and left a week between testing, but this seems partially fixed? my only issue now is that the last frame drawn is sometimes a transitional frame, when either minimizing or restoring. iow, the window is shown smaller than it really is upon restoring (until a paint is forced) and it is also sometimes still visible when minimizing (again, until a paint is forced) (jstubbs)
  • the compositing KCM should provide an easy way to enable the COMPOSITE extension (logixoul)
  • Menu shadows are being left on the desktop (but not on windows, it seems) (Mogger) Fixed by SVN commit 732268
  • Sometimes (tested with Konsole, 7.3, latest nvidia drivers and a Geforce 5900XT), the clicked menus are not displayed and KWin crashes. Backtrace : [3] (idem)
    • Backtrace is not there anymore. rafb removes pastes after some time. Please ude (Icwiener 03:42, 10 November 2007 (CET))
  • After a while the alt-tab window list is completely missing though I can still switch between windows with alt+tab (apaku)
  • alt+tab only allows to switch between windows on the same screen in a multihead setup, its impossible to activate a window on another screen (though its on the same virtual X11 desktop) (apaku)
  • alt+tab (without compositing) shows a list of windows but no indication which window in this list is selected when cycling through them. not reproducable anymore in rev 734784 (goliath23)
  • KWin does not detect compositing ability on my pc with a GeForce 7600 GS (driver version 100.14.19) (goliath23)
    • Are you sure your KWin has compositing support compiled in? Desktop effects kcm now shows the reason why compositing cannot be enabled, please check this (rivo)
  • The Composite Effect 'Demo Liquid' crashes KWin (BCoppens)
  • 'Scale In' effect also scales in Menus and Dropdown boxes from the 'middle' of their target area, this is ugly. Either don't do that for such windows, or let them scale in from their topleft corner (BCoppens)
  • Alt+Shift+Tab for backwards scrolling through Alt+Tab shortcut is not assigned, but I can't remember if this was the case in KDE3 as well or not... (BCoppens)
  • Moving windows with "Display Content" turned off does not display an empty frame. (using an OpenSource driver)<JRT>
  • Alt+Tab crashes KWin here, when pressed too fast several times in a row. Backtrace: (Icwiener 03:42, 10 November 2007 (CET))
  • Composite effects make video playback really slow(Meskalamdug)
  • Composite records(alt+f11) doesn't work(Meskalamdug) Alt+F11 isn't supposed to do anything, maybe you confused it with Ctrl+F11 (activates PresentWindows aka Expose)? (rivo)
  • When switching between users (alt+f7 and alt+f8) the entire screen in black until I force a redraw by clicking somewhere (jstubbs)
  • Plasma's SystemTrayWidget appears in the alt-tab task list even though NET::SkipTaskbar | NET::SkipPager is set on it (jstubbs)


  • Autocomplete in Konqueror forms doesn't allow to type words starting with the same letter of a previous entry. Example: if you search the word "wall" on google and then you try to search for "wireless" it doesn't work. (Tyl3r)(confirmed jpwhiting, jakub)
  • Website it is really bad rendered, however it is fine with Konqueror 3.5.7. (q3xr2)
  • often doesn't load pages properly, for example clicking the login link on a techbase page almost always gets me an empty page. Reloading helps often, but not in every case. (apaku) (frank95com too, gruf too, eliasp too daskreech too(doing this from Firefox since I can't report this bug cause of this bug!))
  • Cannot show thumbnails (emilsedgh)
    • fixed by mlaurent (logixoul)
  • Up Button loads a different view, while back button doesn't, when walking through the filesystem. The up button loads a similar view to what you get in dolhpin, while the default view when typing in a local path is a plain iconview(apaku)
  • When entering already visited directories, the animated logo doesn't stop. (Plain iconview instead of dolphin part?) (Mogger)
  • Nothing in View -> Sort By, Additional Information, Panels, Navigation Bar submenus (yuriy)
    • Confirmed here(SSJ_GZ).
  • Nothing except "home folder" in home folder sidebar (yuriy)
    • $HOME in the desktop entry doesn't seem to get evaluated (yuriy)
    • Error is The File or Folder $HOME does not exist. This also mean we cannot get a tree view rooted at ~(SSJ_GZ)
  • Some favicons do not appear in Konqueror's nav bar to titlebar. and works., and do not work. (JustinNoel)
  • pressing ctrl+a when focus is on addressbar selects whole webpage instead of the text that is written in the addressbar (only on webpages: khtmlpart?) (emilsedgh)
  • have to keep refreshing pages in order for them to display (nixternal)
  • have quite a few problems trying to edit this page alone (nixternal)
  • In file management mode it can't show hidden files, it doesn't have this option in the View menu, neither there is a shorcut available. (q3xr2)
  • In HTML forms (such as the textbox to edit this wikipage with, or the username box), the initial fontsize is small. Once I click on the form, the font suddenly enlargens. Especially annoying with this editbox, since the place where you think you clicked changes after fontsize change (BCoppens)
  • Asks nicely if it has to store my form data (such as password and username in the Wallet, but does not actually do so (BCoppens)
Should be fixed in kdelibs, there was a bug in the wallet subsystem. --TMG 01:43, 15 November 2007 (CET)
  • Clicking on a link to an in-page 'tag' (the a href=#tag thing, like there are lots of in the index of this wiki page), results in konqueror showing the 'Drag link' mouse cursor (BCoppens)
  • Not only do I get blank pages, but I get the following on trying to edit this wiki with Konqueror of KDE4: after sending in the changes, it shows a blank page. I press F5, and Konq asks me to resubmit form data. Wiki then shows an almost-empty edit page, with 'Sorry! We could not process your edit due to a loss of session data' (BCoppens)
  • Start Konq. Press 'Next: An Introduction to Konqueror'. The page goes blank, and 'Previous page' also shows up blank. (BCoppens)
  • With Konqui becoming webbrowser as primary task, it would make sense to redesign the start page altogether and remove stuff like Storage media, Trash etc. Show something like "Search the web" which points to a search engine, like Google, yahoo,...
  • Start Konq. Enter '~'. Make a new tab (CtrlShift+N). Type something. Note how the cursor goes OVER the map icon, instead of starting next to it (BCoppens)
    • I can no longer reproduce this (auxsvr)
  • (Different from the one above) Start Konq. Enter '~'. Make a new tab (CtrlShift+N). Enter '/'. Switch back to the first tab. It's caption suddenly changes from '/home/kde4/' to 'kde4'! Switching to the second tab, removes the '/' and makes that tab nameless) (BCoppens)
  • Printing a html file from konqueror. The "HTML Settings" tab has an odd layout. It seems to miss a proper border. (mbiebl)
  • The search button in the upper left corner of does not draw correctly (no text). (glenner)
    • Not only that, also some other buttons. (frank95com)
  • Searching in (upper left corner) results in an empty page. When i refresh the result are shown correctly. (glenner)
  • For some pages the text in buttons is not shown in full, for example gmail. (talavis)
  • The height in konqueror address bar is too small (sergiof)
  • Flash animations don't show in webpages (ex: has the right path to flash plugin (sergiof)

  • Crashes when activating adblock->hide filtered images (see ) (TunaTom, reproduced by shaga)
  • Drag and drop a file/URI from konqueror (web browsing), konqueror (file browsing with the dolphin part) and dolphin to a textfield in a webpage in konqueror doesn't work. I've even filled a bug issue here: (FiNeX)
  • The close buttons in the tabs don't work. (auxsvr)
  • (wish) add an accelerator to "Save image as" on popup menu in khtml. See: (FiNeX)
  • Alt text frames are not large enough to show all of the text, e.g. "Comic 2" is displayed only as "Comic ". Also happens in kde3. (hdh)

    • Here it works fine. Can anyone confirm that, please? (r 735451). (frank95com)
    • It doesn't crash for me, revision: 737446 (FiNeX)
    • bug #152249
  • If you have a very long shortcut in the "Web shortcuts" configuration dialog on konqueror, the window will be resized over 1024px. If an user have such resolution he cannot view all the window. The combo box for the "default search engine" is resized for displaying all the text and this make all the window resize. Actually there is a schortcut called "Great Dictionary of the Catalan Language" who make this happen. See bug (FiNeX)
  • URL editor does not show browsing history when dropped down. It only shows the current page's URL. (JustinNoel)
  • Import bookmark of mozilla(esported as mozilla bookmarks from konqueror 3x) doesn't work,no replace,no new folder (Meskalamdug)
  • Inconsistency (IMHO): F4 in Konqueror behaves different than in Dolphin (terminal panel vs. terminal in new window) (gissi)
  • Konqueror has serious problems sending data i try this address ,when i try to post a bug give me loss data,impossible to use (Meskalamdug)
  • Drag and Drop in dolphin part in konqueror doesn't work. See (FiNeX)
  • Edit bookmark crash,no backtrace generated (Meskalamdug)

Color KCM

  • Changing the checkbox "Apply colors to non-KDE4 apps" doesn't trigger the changed signal and thus the apply button in systemsettings stays grayed out (apaku)
    • It works here (using r 737180). Can someone else confirm that, please? (frank95com) confirmed works (yuriy)
  • the same as above applies to the whole Effects tab (apaku)
    • I can confirm that (using r 737180). (frank95com)


  • Crash when going down page-wise with PageDn beyond the end of the file. Backtrace: (apaku)
  • Endless loop when executing the following steps: create a new file, save it with the .py extension, press enter, up, closed parenthesis, enter (paolo)
    • I can confirm it, and I'll take a look at it. (mstocker)
    • I have a fix for it, but I'm not sure if doesn't cause other problems: (mstocker)
  • Word Completion - flickering suggestion popup when mouse pointer is inside the popup area. (Hilefoks)


  • traceback after "file has changed, what will you do?" and clicking reload - however, i couldn't reproduce it. (jstubbs)
  • kwrite word completion plugin (This problem is also highlighted in the KATE section) - enabled, when completing a word the popup flickers madly ONLY for the first word, but works for completion for the next word onwards. Attached kwrite output and bt - and - hmm dont think the bt is of any use (null__)


  • kfind crashes when the find is stopped (by pressing "stop" button) during the find process (shaga)

Login Manager KCM

  • There are numbers on the tabs (yuriy)
    • yes - the kcm is too big to have non-clashing letter shortcuts.


  • It doesn't work correctly for the bit mapped fonts Fixed[Misc] & Fixed[Sony] which come with X11 are the best example of this since they might be used in Konsole. This is mainly a Konsole issue. <JRT>
    • There should be only 2 sizes of Fixed[Sony] which works correctly in KDE3 it displays only two sizes. I'm not 100% clear on how this works if you have a screen resolution other than 75 or 100, but xfontsel lists two point sizes for 100 dpi: 12 & 17 and this agrees with the KFontSel dialog. But in KDE4 it lists the usual list of sizes from 4 to 64.
    • There are several sizes of Fixed[Misc], according to xfonsel they are: 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, 12, & 14. KDE has this fairly close to correct -- close enough that it works OK. It also lists 4 which may be a 75 dpi font and it lists 9 but not 12. Could these be rounding errors? IAC, KDE4 is the same as with Fixed[Sony], it has the standard list of 4 to 64.
    • We need to first ask if this is a Qt bug/error as are other font issues.
      • The Fixed{Misc} fonts are not a uniform set of fonts and I don't think that there is any way that Qt can deal with this issue.


  • cannot click on Ok with kdialog --msgbox text. I get "Object::connect: No such slot QDBusReplyWaiter::error(QDBusMessage)". This error does not occur with every user. Works fine on kde3. (msoeken)
    • Just tried (Revision 737448) and it works. (FiNeX)
    • mark as fixed as it works (annma)



  • "Already Guessed" tooltip timer does not work. FIXED annma r732068
  • When changing the "Already Guessed" tim in Config, the current word should stay (KHangMan jumps to a new word). FIXED annma r732068
  • After typing an already typed letter, the focus is left on the guess "button", which means I have to press tab to get back to the letter entry field. If we enable the focus back before tooltip is hidden, it means the tooltip has to be hidden when a new letter is entered. (jstubbs)
    • annma: intented behaviour is that the input is impossible why popup is shown. To leave the kid the time to understand what he is doing. Messing with the tooltip now seems bad to me. It's a WON'T FIX until we have it tested with kids ;) sorry jstubbs!
  • See if the font progressbar can disappear after first run (jstubbs)
    • annma: Removing your ~/.fonts/d dustismo_roman.ttf will make the bug go away. The font will reinstall and then it'll be found. Not sure why it happened...
    • jstubbs: the above does not work for me
  • Test what happens for the fonts when no internet connection (annma)
  • Wish: when using the Special chars toolbar, letters should go immediatly in the word or in Missed. Annma is not sure this would work with kids, they maybe won't understand what happens. (jstubbs)
    • annma: maybe a config option for KDE 4.1 as we are in feature freeze now.
  • Language combo in toolbar does not resize correctly when adding a language with a longer name than those already present. (jstubbs)
  • Right-clicking "Type accented letters" does not offer the context sensitive help when the option is disabled. (jstubbs)
    • annma: this is from Qt, it's default behaviour for QWhatsThis help.
    • jstubbs: Using the "what's this" button from the title bar and then clicking on it gives the help. Perhaps this should be sent upstream? At the moment, it is not clear what the option does or under what situations it would become enabled...


  • Searching for "one" takes a long time to process, during which the application blocks without any feedback. (jstubbs)
  • "Filter Rare" does not seem to work (jstubbs)

  • In fraction tasks, the denominators used sometimes exceed the max denominator that is set. (jstubbs) r732343 attempted to fixe it but not totally


  • When starting a new set of tests, and on various other actions, the window unnecessarily moves to the centre of the screen (jstubbs) Fixed r732700


  • Intermittent crash after a placing state on a map (jstubbs) Fixed r732331 (tsdgeos)
  • Selecting zoom when placing state on a map leaves the cursor as the state to be placed - perhaps the cursor should change back to a pointer while in zoom mode? (jstubbs) Fixed r732314 (tsdgeos)
  • With KWin's dimming of inactive windows, it is difficult to relate the colors signfying right/wrong answers back to the map (jstubbs)


  • Editing function does not work as if Enter is not doing anything (rivo, gissi and idem-kde4) Annma cannot reproduce.
    • Note by gissi: For me, only editing a cartesian plot doesn't work, the others work as expected. Don't know wether that's the same for rivo and idem.
      • I confirm this too, i also confirm that it is a regression, it worked just fine few month ago (ELV13)
  • The cursor disappear when a dialog is open and the mouse go over the plot visualizer section


  • Navigate to Minneapolis (search is quick) and then zoom in until "saint paul" appears. Rotating up and down will now cause the text "saint paul" to jump around. (jstubbs)
  • In full screen mode, clicking in the right half of the globe doesn't work. It seems that plasma is getting the events? (jstubbs)



  • The direction and velocity marker flickers and often cannot be seen. Using opengl compositing. (jstubbs)

  • Random crashes when navigating to directories, or when editing the path manually. Backtrace (luca_b)
  • Gwenview is noticeably slower while loading the images than the stable 1.4.2 version (on the same system). It seems that the new version load entirely the image before showing it. Gwenview 1.4.2 show the image little by little that is better for the user experience. See bug report: (mar nov 13 22:40:35 CET 2007, FiNeX)
  • In the "view" mode, if the "zoom to fit option" is enabled and the gwenview window is smaller than the monitor resolution, when you navigate through images with "next" and "previous" buttons, the gwenview window will be resized to the max size for displaying the image.

Oxygen - Style

  • Visual glitches in Oxygen: tabs in konqui, progressbar in dolphin. (mbiebl)
  • konsole, Oxygen: the arrows of the right scrollbar are not visible (black on black). (mbiebl)
  • Too little contrast in the window-list from alt-tab shortcut, people with only slight visual problems won't be able to see the difference between selected/not selected (apaku)
  • Buttons inside konqueror are not drawn properly, text labels are off and often are missing completely. This doesn't happen with plain Qt style, but also with Plastik (apaku)
  • Missing widgets / invisible text in the side bar off application like marble or kalzium
  • Close/minimize/maximise/make independant button in title bar and panel qt container are not similar. In panel container when they are highlighted, a square is painted over them. In title bar it is a circle. To get more coherence, both should be the same (square are nicer in my opinion).
  • Oxygen window decoration is missing "keep above others" and "keep below others" functionality. (and possibly icons for them, too) (teprrr)
  • Tabbar scroll buttons, when the tabs exceed the space available for the widget, are drawn on top of the rightmost tab: Kopete yahooconfig oxygen tab bug.png

Oxygen - Icons

  • cannot write kde3 when you start a line with a character of an rtl language, the line goes rtl automatically (emilsedgh)
  • Configure shortcuts dialog is too small at start: I cannot see the action name at all (it says stuff like 'C...' instead of 'Close'). Furthermore, and much worse: I cannot change the width of the columns at all to try to make the action names readable! (BCoppens)
  • KSelector with orientation horizontal has by default a left arrow, it should be an up arrow. (slangkamp) Fixed by SVN commit 735130
  • I can reproduce this behaviour e.g. with okular or kbounce, but not whith kwin4 or kgouldrunner: open okular, resize it, close it -- when reopened it will have the same size as before. Now maximize the window and close the app. When you restart the app it has it's default size. (Trigger7)
    • This bug seems to be related with Don't know a person but me which can reproduce it right now - please speak up if you can! Pinotree thinks this is a kdelibs bug and no bug in the applications. You can find an very ugly screen cast shich shows the problem here: (Trigger7)
    • I can reproduce this here. kpdf in KDE3 will restart maximized, however if you click the restore button, it returns to the default window size, which is too small. (auxsvr)
  • When you make an application's toolbar locked, the next time you start the application the toolbar is not locked. (brumgabrasch) 152263
  • When you make an application's toolbar float, the next time you start the application the toolbar becomes a glitch.
    • Test case:
    • Screenshot: glitchxi2.png
    • Steps to reproduce:
      • Run KWrite
      • Make the toolbar float
      • Exit it and run it again
    • Might be related:
      • The floating toolbars no longer have a title bar or a border
      • The "Toolbar Menu->Orientation" menu no longer have "flat" or "floating"
    • Mek: using Qt 4.4 snapshot this is fixed
  • The "select font" dialog show a slider with max value 128, and the list below is max 64. Them should have the same value instead! See (FiNeX) fixed r737628 (annma & FiNeX)
  • The size list in the "select font" dialog window is not updated when the slider value is updated. See (FiNeX) fixed r737652 (annma, FiNeX, dfaure)
  • The "Select font" dialog window, has THREE way for set the size value. Isn't too many? See wish (FiNeX) removed slider on r739152, now it is really better.
  • When the "select folder" dialog window is opened, the treeview has selected a value, but the textfield under the treeview is empty. If you click "OK" the value returned will be "/". If you select something on the treeview and after you click on a bookmark on the left of the dialog, the treeview will be updated, but the textfield will not. See (FiNeX)

  • Kmail ask for kdewallet pass when i check mail,ok i type the correct kwallet pass...and then ask for pop3 server pass(of course password is correct and i save it in kwalletmanager) (Meskalamdug)
So what is the problem here? KMail saves the POP3 password in KWallet, therefore you need to open the wallet, which requires a password (unless you use a password-less wallet). Then of course KMail needs the POP3 password, which it then stores in the wallet. I don't see anything wrong here, can you clarify? --TMG 14:24, 10 November 2007 (CET)
The problem is...pass is already stored in the wallet.On kde3 ask only the kwallet ask first for kwallet pass..and then for stored pop3 pass.(Meskalamdug)

This is fixed now.
  • Edit identity "Edit File" wrong path. See ...look the wonderful screenshot included :-) r737562 (FiNeX)
  • Very strange and nice bug,if i try to import folders from old kde dir(.kde/share/apps)it import not only mail folders..but also scripts,images and every kind of file found. (Meskalamdug)
  • All mails in a folder are set to unread on IMAP. See (FiNeX)
  • If i decrypt a mail kmail said "Message was signed with unknown key.The validity of the signature cannot be verified.Status: Error: Signature not verified" but key is valid and message is decrypted. (Meskalamdug)


  • Crashes starting the application.
    • We need a backtrace, otherwise we can't do anything. It doesn't crash for us. --TMG 21:24, 6 November 2007 (CET)
    • Not reproducible for me either. (Icwiener 03:32, 10 November 2007 (CET))
  • The "ADD" and "REMOVE" buttons on the "Weather Service Setup" configuration dialog in kontact, doesn't work. For adding/removing a stations you have to double click on the entry in the listbox. See (FiNeX)




  • Most of the Items are empty (emilsedgh)
  • The memory info doesn't display graphs, with the following message in console : QPainter::begin: Widget painting can only begin as a result of a paintEvent (Pinaraf)
    • Fixed by Pinaraf


  • Under Settings->Configure KCalc...->General->Precision there is a spin box labelled "Maximum number of digits:". You can type numbers from 0-99 in it but it can be rotated (with the arrow buttons) up to 200. (Icwiener 03:34, 10 November 2007 (CET))
  • The window becomes way too wide when chosen high precicion. It's what the user wants if he sets the precision that high, but couldn't there be another solution than expanding the window beyond the screen borders? (Icwiener 03:34, 10 November 2007 (CET))
  • The square of a number show strange commas. (FiNeX)
    • Confirmed: press '2' and then 'sqrt' Erm, no I cannot confirm that for 'en_US' or 'de' locale. I think it depends on the used locale. (Icwiener 10:18, 11 November 2007 (CET))
    • I'm using the 'it' locale. I've even tested it doing an "KDE_LANG=en_US kcalc" and there is the same bug too. (FiNeX, dom nov 11 12:40:03 CET 2007) Now it is working r737624


  • In Settings->Configure KHexEdit...->Files there is an option "Do not save 'Recent' document list on exit". This is a negative option. "Yes, I do not want to have them saved" <- odd (Icwiener 03:34, 10 November 2007 (CET))


  • On the info page on startup, the "littler than" sign '<' for the email address at the end of the page is not drawn. (Icwiener 03:34, 10 November 2007 (CET))
  • When typing "a+" (without quote chars), KRegExpEditor crashes (backtrace) -- Eckhart 15:09, 10 November 2007 (CET)
    • confirmed in revision 737446 (FiNeX)
