Bug Fixes

Development Tools

Aleix Pol Gonzalez committed changes in [kdevelop] projectmanagers/cmake/cmakemanager.cpp:

Fix integration with custom output paths in CMake.

Andreas Pakulat committed changes in [kdevplatform] util/environmentselectionwidget.cpp:

Fix storing/restoring of environment settings

This works around a change in kdelibs that was done to fix
KConfigDialogManager's behaviour with Qt4.8 and normal Q/KComboBox. With
that change the user-property is not considered anymore for Q/KComboBox
and instead the hardcoded index/text-handling part is done. That breaks
our own KComboBox subclass since we relied on the fact that our own
user-property would override that hardcoded stuff.

After looking at the kconfigdialogmanager sources I noticed that it
supports a special property "kcfg_property" which can point to a
property-name and then is considered first as the property to store
into the config file. With that we can again restore the behaviour of
storing the currentProfile to the config file.

This will work on all kdelibs back to sometime 2009, which covers KDE
4.5 and later at least, which is enough since the code requires 4.6 anyway.

Nick Shaforostoff committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdesdk/lokalize/src:

make overwriting existing notes impossible:
edit existing note instead, if multiple notes are not supported
(this is the case for PO)


Albert Astals Cid committed changes in [okular] /:

Remove the need for the hash so we can map back from words to characters

This is needed because sometimes the hash had collissions and make it impossible to know which character we had to put back
Now we just keep the word and the characters together in the same class and it is much easier to correlate them
Also the code gets much more simplified and less new/delete are needed

This fixes the crash in 287138

I am still concerted that we use the page width and height in TextPagePrivate::correctTextOrder, but that should not cause crashes, at most some misplacements of very small text

Albert Astals Cid committed changes in [okular] generators/poppler/generator_pdf.cpp:

Properly parse "characters" formed by two QChars

This fixes the crash at 287138, it does still not really fix the flaw in the algorithm in TextPagePrivate::breakWordIntoCharacters
when there are two strings with the same text and the same bounding rectangle in the same page, but i still don't know how to fix that problem properly,
so i've fixed a bug that was generating the situation for files that actually do not have it

KDE Base

Aaron J. Seigo committed changes in [kdelibs/frameworks] plasma/tooltipmanager.cpp:

use the default corona in case the widget doesn't provide one

we need a different solution for libplasma2, however.

Philipp Knechtges committed changes in [kde-workspace] /:

kwin: bugfix nouveau GLES + loose texture bindings in kwin_gles

There seems to be a problem with nouveau GLES if you want to create an
EGLImageKHR more than once in a frame for the same pixmap. This patch
circumvents the problem in the way that it implements tfp the same way
as the mesa example in
mesa/demos/src/egl/opengles1/texture_from_pixmap.c does it. A nice
side effect of this is that it also avoids the overhead of recreating
the texture for every damaged window.

Aaron J. Seigo committed changes in [kdelibs/frameworks] plasma/applet.cpp:

constrained square makes sense for vertical but not horizontal panels

Aaron J. Seigo committed changes in [kdelibs/KDE/4.7] plasma/packagestructure.cpp:

catch another possible mimetype identification

Colin Guthrie committed changes in [kde-runtime] phonon/kcm/audiosetup.cpp:

phonon: Allow the audio setup GUI to work second time round.

This basically clears things out properly such that the second invocation populates
it all again with fresh data.

Aaron J. Seigo committed changes in [kde-workspace] plasma/desktop/applets/tasks/taskgroupitem.cpp:

sync the dialog to the graphics widget before moving it

Aaron J. Seigo committed changes in [kde-workspace] plasma/generic/dataengines/tasks/tasksengine.cpp:

workaround qt ref counting bug seen triggered often in libtaskmanager

not patching libplasma as i'd like to keep this mess limited to taskmanager related code
rather than burdoning all DataEngines with it. this requires today's KDE/4.7 libplasma to
work as expected: sourceRemoved was not being emitted for direct-deleted containers.


David Faure committed changes in [kde-runtime] kuiserver/jobview.cpp:

Don't assert on dbus communication, just print the error and return.

I could reproduce this by stopping plasma in gdb after starting a job.
The dbus call to plasma would time out, and we'd get a dbus error here.

Xuetian Weng committed changes in [libstreamanalyzer] plugins/lineplugins/cpplineanalyzer.cpp:

we need a useful new property or new DataObject type to describe a C
header which does not have an absolute path.
Comment it out for now.

REVIEW: 103283

Dawit Alemayehu committed changes in [kde-runtime] kpasswdserver/kpasswdserver.cpp:

To avoid user confusion, hide the "Remember password" checkbox whenever the
wallet is disabled.

Note that this does not affect credentials being kept for the duration of
the application(s) that set them or are currently using them. It only deals
with persistent caching of password in KDE wallet.

REVIEW: 103300

Aaron J. Seigo committed changes in [kdelibs/frameworks] plasma/private/tooltip.cpp:

get rid of the text halos

they are (relatively) expensive and should be unnecessary now:
we have blur, it works well, and when we don't blur we use different backgrounds.

one more "take one thing off" while i'm futzing around in tooltips

don't hold on to the job pointer, it gets passed back to us in the completion slot

Aaron J. Seigo committed changes in [kdeplasma-addons] applets/rssnow/news.cpp:

don't resize the news widget

Jekyll Wu committed changes in [konsole] /:

Revert "Ensure %w and %# are also expaned in the 'Copy input' dialog"

That fix is not good enough because it makes '%w' being updated only
after keystroke instead of immediately . The issue of updating title is
actually a little more complicated than I have understood.

Revert it because the regression should influence more users than the
fixed problem does. Need to spend more time to find a better fix.

This reverts commit 1c1981501b6e3bcd433840bf36f7851f06772322.

David Faure committed changes in [kwebkitpart] src/networkaccessmanager.cpp:

Handle helper protocols here, so that links to ssh://host work

(after the security warning).
Helper protocols have to run an app, there is no kioslave associated
with them. KRun has the code for it.

Dawit Alemayehu committed changes in [kwebkitpart] src/kwebkitpart_ext.cpp:

Correctly set the host that is going to be blocked by the ad filter.

Aaron J. Seigo committed changes in [kdelibs/frameworks] kutils/kpluginselector.cpp:

Fix regression induced (but likely not caused) by commit e91e5fed6b1aad365e12e919f430c3e8147552d3

Commiting on behalf of Jaime Torres.

On k-c-d I suggested this would be another ouotcome of bug #213068 and Jaime could confirm this and the
scrollbar policy workaround to work.
He suggested to fix it by "setHorizontalScrollBarPolicy(Qt::ScrollBarAlwaysOff);" instead (since presumingly the
pluginselector is always top-down oriented)
I tested that variant as well and could not reproduce the issue.

Since Jaime has no acces to his development environment for today he asked me to either revert his commit or
apply the hotfix working around bug #213068 as mentioned above.

Because i could not spot any bug in his commit i'll go with the hotfix to prevent a regression.
Resolving the actual recursion bug is an outstanding issue.

Aaron J. Seigo committed changes in [kdelibs/frameworks] plasma/applet.cpp:

set the parent of the config skeleton object to be the dialog

Gregor Tätzner committed changes in [kde-baseapps] plasma/applets/folderview/folderview.cpp:

Folder View pointed at Trash doesn't update the context menu properly

enable empty_trash action in contextualActions when the url is pointing
to trash:/. contextualActions checks to see if the url protocol is trash
before adding the empty_trash action, but does not check to see if it
should be enabled or not.

Allen Winter committed changes in [kdepim-runtime] resources/mixedmaildir/retrieveitemsjob.cpp:

in Private::storeListResult(), don't try to create a delete job

Sebastian Sauer committed changes in [calligra] plugins/chartshape/PlotArea.cpp:

Fix axis orientation was swapped when the diagram was vertical.

This can be verified by loading the ODP referenced at bug 287895
into Stage. There at slide number 9 we displayed only one big
bar rather then all the bars with the expected at the y-axis
defined chart:maximum. That was so cause we completly ignored
any vertical=true definitions for the axes cause Axis::loadOdf
was called way before we called PlotArea::setVertical.

Allan Anderson committed changes in [kmymoney] kmymoney/plugins/csvimport/investprocessing.cpp:

If a CSV file contains lines with differing numbers of columns (or the
last column is empty), and if one of the selected columns happens to

libmsooxml: libmsooxml: fine tuned text:line-break processing

Introducing a new <text:span> element having text-properties
defined by endParaRPr in selected situations in order to prevent
usage of the styleForModification function:

* Do not save text-properties into paragraph styles also in case
of empty paragraphs. Save an empty <text:span> having
text-properties defined by endParaRPr. Looking for the default
font size defined by the application in case the endParaRPr
formatted span is removed and new text is inserted.

* Insert an empty <text:span> having text-properties defined by
endParaRPr in case the <text:line-break> is the last element of
the paragraph in order to apply the correct fo:font-size to the
new line. Replaced the original fo:font-size from
text-properties of <text:line-break> by TEXT_FONTSIZE_MIN to
not affect the line-height calculation of both the new line and
the current line. This disables of course application of the
default font-size defined by the application in case of

* Removing the fo:text-transform attribute is also removed from
text-properties of text:line-break because it disables its
functionality during layout (did not check the layout part).

* Also removing the style:text-underline-style attribute. If
text styles of the text chunk and text:line-break match,
underline is applied until end of the line during layout.

Marcel Wiesweg committed changes in [digikam] /dimg:

Provide methods to remove an alpha channel from an image. Remove alpha channel before saving to JPEG.

- hasTransparentPixels checks if, given there is an alpha channel,
some pixels actually is transparent (alpha < 1.0)
- bitBlendImageOnColor allows to compose an image over a constant color
This is equivalent to create a DImg, fill it with a color,
blend the first image over the new one, and replace the first image with the result.
- removeAlphaChannel blends the image on a color, usually, white, and removes the alpha channel
- in updateMetadata:
ensure that the previous embedded preview is always removed
only add a new check that a preview is only added if the original image is significantly
larger than the intended preview size
To be discussed and currently unchanged: handling of transparent pixels

Martin Gräßlin committed changes in [plasma-mobile] /:

Better support for KWin's TabBox feature

TabBox is now completely controlled from Plasma side. It gets
activated when the dragging starts and connects to the item selected
signal. When an item got selected the panel is closed. As soon as
the panel closed either accept or reject of TabBox is invoked to
close it and (if an item was selected) to activate the window.

This means the switching is slightly delayed.

Lamarque Souza committed changes in [kde-workspace/ksmserver/qml-shutdowndlg] /:

Show a QML dialog on KDE session exiting. There are two themes:

1. default.qml, this is a basic replacement for the current dialog. It
is not fully functional yet. I need to add the boot options (for grub2)
and work more on the GUI since the QML components I am using lack some
features used in the current dialog (QPushButton popup menu, icons on
button's right side, growing background effect on QPushButtons, label
text aligned to the right instead of to left). The dialog/shutdowndialog
borders also do not work properly, dialog's resizing still needs work
and the screen's graying out effect does not work. I guess the QML
dialog is stopping the graying out effect somehow.

2. contour.qml, this is meant to be used with Plasma Active. Contour.qml
uses larger buttons for touchscreen friendliness. For now it includes
only the lock screen, sleep and shutdown butons.

contour.qml is the default in this patch, that will change when this
branch is merged to kde-workspace master branch.

Reimplement name-filtering

The filtering of items has not been implemented yet in
the KFileItemModel of the new view-engine. The patch brings back
this functionality again, but some minor issues are open:
- When filtering trees expanded directories should only get
hidden if no child is visible
- Regular expressions are not supported yet (they have not been
supported in Dolphin 1.x but it is now quite simple to implement).
- When filtering previews and removing the filter it might be
possible that the preview is not shown (is most probably an
an already existing bug in KFileItemModelRolesUpdater).

FIXED-IN: 4.8.0

2. implement support for reading, writing and editing of filled radar charts in the charting plugin.
3. implement support for reading filled radar chart from Microsoft 2000/2003/2007 documents and producing proper ODF for filled radar charts out of it which is then passed on to the charting plugin.

don't smooth image while scaling the webpage during zoom

I'm not sure if this is *really* needed. Rendering is disabled, so the
webpage won't do layout updates which makes for the biggest performance
gain already. The image still seems scaled smoothly though, so we
disable that as well and just scale the frames during zoom animations

There's no visible performance gain on my laptop, but let's try anyway
if it squeezes out a few more FPS on devices.

Sebastian Trueg committed changes in [nepomuk-core/symlinkHandling] /:

Improved symlink handling on the indexer level.

The indexer will now index directly symlinked files like any other file.
Indirectly symlinked files will create an additional kext:altUrl
property on the target file.
For this to actually work kext:altUrl will have to be treated as a 2nd
special case besides nie:url in the DMS.

Major speedup when deleting many messages.

Christian Mollekopf committed changes in [kdepim-runtime] /nepomukfeeder:

Avoid using to much memory and overloading nepomuk

The ItemQueue stores now id's only instead of full items, and only fetches a couple of items at a time.
This ensures that not too much memory is used. To ease the load on nepomuk if a storejob times out,
we insert a timeout.

Optimize the inverse iterator by making it by a factor of 100 faster.

The inverse iterator logic is used in statistical functions like betainv. Before we parsed and applied a formula >=1000 times for each single iterator call. That is slow^as^hell. This is fixed now by passing in a function-pointer for the formula function that should be used during iteration what obsoletes the expensive^as^hell formula execution done before.

The effect is that documents that made heavy using of formulas using the inverse iterator are now a few hundred factors faster loaded and displayed. This is most notable with the from our collection of test-documents. Before loading that file never finished (cstester aborted with signal 9) while now we have it loaded and displayed in <6 seconds.

Regular expression using QRegExp are indeed evil. This improves the time spend in Formula::scan during loading the from ~4.6 seconds to ~2.8 seconds what saves us around ~2 seconds.

Optimize saving to ODF.

This combines the commits ecac0d03d90c and the idea from commit 43b0a39eb91 together to;
1) keep the to-cell anchored shape handling intact and working as expected.
2) improve the saving-speed by some tons of factors by using the RowRepeatStorage to compress identical rows together.

All tested test-documents are still working as expected before vs after the patch. Feedback welcome :)

Fix infinite loop in context view eating CPU until main window is shown

We used to use _scene_ sceneRect in
VerticalToolbarContainment::updateGeometry() to update applets and
geometry, but that leaded to infinite loop (across mainloop) -
m_applets->setGeometry(), refresh() would enlarge _scene_ sceneRect by
a few pixels which would trigger updateGeometry() and so on...

We now use _view_ sceneRect to update geometry. Rick W. Chen discovered
some glitches in applet collapsing when this patch is applied, but he
has a patch for that in the works and this is more serious problem, so
pushing this.

libmsooxml: text properties inheritance kung fu

* Don't add style:use-window-font-color="true" into
text-properties of a style of a text chunk when fo:color is not
provided. This only affects text inside tables at the moment,
becasue the default text colors (color scheme defined by
slideLayout) are used for any other text. This was overriding
the fo:color defined in the cell style.

* Remove all text-properties from paragraph style in case the
paragraph is not empty. The endParaRPr element specifies the
text run properties that are to be used if another run is
inserted after the last run specified. It does not affect
formatting of text chunks in the paragraph. That's a paragraph
specific piece of information that we are not going to save
into ODF at the moment.

* Store <text:line-break> inside of a <text:span> element.
Process the rPr (Text Run Properties) of the br (Text Line
Break) element, but only use it to format the
<text:line-break> (It should apply to a newly inserted run of
text). That's another piece of information that we are not
going to save into ODF at the moment.

> I inferred the following a inheritance hierarchy:
1. font-size defined in the rPr element inside br
2. minimal font-size in the paragraph if any font size is provided
3. font-size defined by endParaRPr if present
(other text-properties are not important at the moment)

REASON: At the moment the current text style is applied until
end of the line (like underline) and then the line-break is
applied. Also when a line-break is located at the end of
paragraph (empty line is inserted) the application default
font-size is used because there are no text-properties in the
pragraph style.
