Special window/application settings don't work anymore since Qt 4.8.1
 
Hi,

I appreciate the hard work of the Debian KDE maintainers and want to
say a big Thank You!

I think since Qt was upgraded to version 4.8.1 on Debian/sid I have
the small problem that special window/application settings are ignored.

For instance, I have a setting to prevent drawing the window decoration
(to save desktop space) of 'konsole'. With the Qt update, this does not
work anymore -- the window border and title is always drawn.

Any idea?

Thanks in advance,

Frank

Hi. Just want to confirm, that I have this issue too.
Though I am not sure that this is because if qt and not because of kde since I
upgraded kde and qt at the same time.

Hi Frank

I can only say that I have encountered that, too.
I know that we are in the middle of KDE rebuild/transaction (and newer python-
qt4 causes plasma desktop to segfault), so it may be matter of waiting until
all packages are rebuilt and uploaded.

Although I am no Debian Developer, I can only suggest to wait some time - if
problem won't "magically" disappear in next few days, then it might be good
idea to file a bug report - against kwin, perhaps (as kwin is responsible for
visibility of window decorations).

Ps. Didn't you send the same message on 10 May?

thank you for your confirmation and sorry for posting this question
twice -- for some reason I couldn't see my first E-mail appearing on
the list so I posted it a second time.

Thanks again,

Frank

I'll bump this. It's pretty annoying, I miss my special settings :(

Hi Frank, hi Boris

I have dig a bit around this issue. For me, only rules with title-matching
criteria fails to apply to newly created windows. Other rules does work as
intended.

I have found two upstream bug reports:
https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=207670
https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=217123
they were eventually marked as duplicate of
https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=207670

As I think #207670 is not a case here, I have filed new bug report:
https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=303185

Can you confirm that this problem occurs only to specific rules that tries to
match window title?

You may post additional information to upstream bug report, if you find this
appropriate.

Since I don't know if you are subscribed to this list, I have CC-ed you. Sorry
if this was unnecessary. I am subscribed to list, so there is no need of
CC-ying me in your replies.

Not newly created only, It happened (yes, past) when something happened to
windows, like title or size changed.

After the latest upgrade from sid I don't have this bug.
