Bug Fixes

Development Tools

Andreas Pakulat committed changes in [kdevplatform] outputview/outputmodel.cpp:

Restore working prev/next output marker behaviour

This was broken during the refactoring when moving the code from kdevelop
into kdevplatform. The shuffling of code apparently led to the wrong
lists size being appended to the set. The original code appended the size
of the actual lines in the model (not the error-items) to the list, which
is the same as the row-number of the newly-inserted item. This was
transformed into adding the size of the error-items-list, which simply
makes no sense. The code using this list actually expects row-numbers for
the model in the set.

Milian Wolff committed changes in [kdevelop/4.4] /makebuilder:

Let the OutputView take ownership of the make output delegate.

This is basically the fix for the two bugs below that does not
require any ABI break and can thus be done in the 1.4 branch.

Josef Weidendorfer committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdesdk/kcachegrind/libcore/cachegrindloader.cpp:

Fix bug in CachegrindLoader

A "fl=..." line provides the filename for following functions
specified. This information got lost if "fi=/fe=" lines
showed up. These specify files related to lines/instructions
of the current function which are different from the file where
the function is defined.

Josef Weidendorfer committed changes in /trunk/KDE/kdesdk/kcachegrind/libviews:

Fix two annoying behaviours of function selection

* switch off autoScroll: otherwise selecting partially
visible function name column resulted in automatic horizonal
scroll, hiding the cost columns
* show tooltip with full function name if truncated in column

Both "worked" correct with Qt3 compat classes...


Brian Korbein committed changes in [bookmanager] /:

Vishesh Handa committed changes in [nepomuk-core/KDE/4.9] services/filewatch/kinotify.cpp:

kinotify: Do not store the paths to be added

kinotify used a QQueue<QByteArray> to store all the directories which
need to be added. Since we use QDirIterator, each path is presented as a
QString which is then encoded to its QByteArray (QFile::encodeName).
This results in *large* chunks of memory being allocated, and then
slowly being deallocated.

Instead, we now use a QDirIterator, and do not store all the directories
which need to be added, we simply iterate over them. This way we do not
allocate large amounts of memory.

There is a large performance improvement as well. On my system, with
38829 directories, adding all the watches now takes only about 10 seconds,
instead of about 65.

Patch possible due to massif output provided by Jure Repinc.
Thanks a lot.

tldr: Use DFS instead of BFS -> Less memory consumption

DIGEST: Fix massive memory leak in Nepomuk File Monitoring Service

Amandeep Singh committed changes in [kde-baseapps] /src/kitemviews:

Remove reimplementation of functions.

The base class implementations are actually good and without some problems.
Save one pointer's worth of memory by not having m_container.

rect was returning a relative rectangle always.

State was wrongly returning HasInvokeExtension which can lead to crashes.

Simeon Bird committed changes in [nepomuk-core] /fileindexer:

Add the --skip option introduced in the last commit to
the invocation of nepomukindexer from the file indexing service.

Add a configurable option "exclude plugins" (which defaults to the
SHA1 plugin DigestEventAnalyzer) to allow generic plugins to be excluded.

David Faure committed changes in [kdelibs/frameworks] staging/kde4support/autotests/klibloadertest.cpp:

With the buildsystem changes, the plugins are created in this dir, now.

This fixes klibloadertest with Qt4. Still broken in Qt5 though,
due to Q_EXPORT_PLUGIN[2] being broken on purpose there.

Martin Gräßlin committed changes in [kde-workspace/KDE/4.9] kwin/effects/flipswitch/flipswitch.cpp:

The code assumed that screens border to each other. That is the height
of the one screen is the y position of the other screen.

REVIEW: 105958

Alex Merry committed changes in [kde-workspace] plasma/generic/dataengines/mpris2/playercontainer.cpp:

MPRIS2: assume the position is 0 when stopped

MPRIS2 does not require the Seeked() signal to be emitted when stopping
a track. It does, however, require it to be emitted if the position is
not 0 when going from Stopped to Playing (or Paused).

So we should assume the position is 0 when Stopped.

This fixes an issue I noticed with gmusicbrowser, where stopping a track
and starting it again would show the wrong time in the Now Playing

FIXED-IN: 4.9.1

Frank Reininghaus committed changes in [kdelibs/KDE/4.9] /util:

Make KModifierKeyInfoProvider inherit QObject, rather than QWidget

This makes crashes like the one I'm closing with this report impossible,
even though the root cause might be somehing else, possibly related to
Qt and particular settings of certain styles.

In any case, that class does not need anything from QWidget any more, so
this change would make sense even without the crash.

Thanks to Aurelién Gâteau and David Faure, both for coming up with the
idea to fix it this way in the first place and for explaining why
deriving the class from QWidget did make sense in the past.

Martin Gräßlin committed changes in [kde-workspace/KDE/4.9] /tabbox:

Verify QVariant is valid before casting to Client*

If the ClientModel does not contain any Clients, which can
happen if there is no desktop window, accessing the data of a
ModelIndex returns an invalid QVariant. Because of that it
needs to be ensured that the QVariant is valid before trying to
cast it to a Client Pointer.

fix regression when loading vector shapes generated by OO/LO/MSO

In the commit 9efb4e33f2729080b1f1f24bb18970499a21f2b9 unfortunately a regression was
introduced so that loading of vector shapes generated by OO/LO/MSO and our filters no
longer work. Unfortunately this commit is also in the 2.5 release. This can be seen
e.g. with the following documents:

but much much more of our test documents are effected. There is also a crash in the
last document due to which I noticed the problem and started investigating.

The problem is that our filters and the other apps create mimetypes that se no longer
load with the above mentioned commit.

This patch fixes the filter to use the new mimetypes when converting files and adding
other mimetypes that are written be e.g. OO or guessed by the mimetype guesser of some
of the files.

Additionally fixed by this patch is to not load the first child element twice as when
the first loading failed it makes no sense to try it a second time.
It also fixes a problem that the formula shape and the chart shape tried to load every
embedded document even if it had the wrong mimetype.

Fix mixup of canvas and document resource

When investigating the reason for crash for bug 304674 I found out that a very a bug had sneeked in during some refactor of the KoDocumentResourceProvider and KoCanvasResourceProvider. The problem there was that the canvas resource current page had changed and that triggered a repaint which resulted in a crash (Crash fixed by a better fix). However the reason there was a repaint was that the signal for changing the current page resource triggered in KoPathTool::resourceChanged the trigger for HandleRadius as both resource providers did trigger the same slot with oververlapping resources :-(. Seems like this was not the only place where this was done. I have fixed that by adding a second slot for the documentResourceChanged and now the different slots are used for the different resources to no longer mix stuff there. I tried my best to find all occurrences of the problem.

Will wait one week before I backport to 2.5 as asked by boemann.

Fix misplaced validation tip in tableview; show invalid data warnings

*Clicking validation popup editor is focus again allowing to correct the value
*Use new message widget for validation popups


Friedrich W. H. Kossebau committed changes in [calligra] /:

introduce koIcon

* fixes for the wrong usage of K/QIcon vs. pixmap (from incomplete Qt3->Qt4 porting):
Q/KIcon does not have a real size, it's more kind of a factory for whatever
pixmap size it is asked for, so just loading a certain icon pixmap and setting that
to a KIcon/QIcon is useless, as the widget which takes the icon might request a
different size. So e.g. passing a SmallIcon("icon-foo") to a button which takes a
QIcon can result in badly scaled icons instead of loading the most perfect size
match from the icon-set.
* removes lots of unneeded includes, usually kiconloader.h
* makes the API consistent for some classes, with
"iconName" for a QString-based icon name and
"icon" for a KIcon/QIcon type property
* use consistently "IconSize" everywhere instead of "KIconLoader::global()->currentSize"
* removes unused "KPrFactory::iconLoader()"
* adds a simple script tools/iconcheck/ to find iconnames without existing icons

Martin Tobias Holmedahl Sandsmark committed changes in [kmix] /:

Fix master channel selection via kmix main window issue and fix no global master found issue.

Fixes the issue where changing the master control in the KMix main
window doesn't change the master control in tray.

It also solves a problem with the dock icon appearing blank due to the
mixer not able to find any global master. The device id returns
something like "alsa_output.pci-0000_04_00.0.analog-surround-51" for 5.1
and "alsa_output.pci-0000_04_00.0.analog-stereo" for analog stereo and
hence the issue.

Patch by Prasad Murthy.

However that does not seem to be the case.

Scenario: Tracks are deleted from collection but not from playlist.

So, when handling playlist tracks, make sure that there is an actual
track object behind it.

Add support for GRUB2 submenus.

Properly parse the 'submenu' directive in GRUB's configuration file
and provide the user with an appropriate menu interface when choosing
which entry to reboot into.

Limitations: Internally we make use of the " >> " separator (hardcoded
in both kdm and ksmserver). An occurence of the separator in a menu
title (be it menuentry or submenu) will baffle our parser. Moreover,
we only support multi-line statements: one-liners, although supported
by GRUB, will fail to be parsed. Lastly, only up to 5 nesting levels
are supported. The above limits are more than enough for all but a
handful of cases.

the BUILD_MARBLE_MAP cmake option
- Add coordinates to the Stop class and a boolean
hasValidCoordinates, the map can only show stops when this is true
- Add comparison operator to Stop for automatic sorting of stops
to a good order for drawing (in the QMap)

When a job gets deleted, ensure we update the runcontroller.

This can happen when a job gets deleted, i.e. via QObject inheritance.

in e.g. dynamic_cast.

Harald Sitter committed changes in [phonon-vlc] /:

simplify ticking logic

upon further review of the qtphonon documentation it is not really
clear how ticking is supposed to behave precisely, however it seems
to be closest when time stamps are not duplicated, so timer ticking is
out of the question as that can potentially do that since we have no
control over VLC's time stamp resolution (and I also found no way to
actually get any value of the resolution thus actually rendering us
partially incompatible with the documentation's requirements \o/).

Instead of time ticking we simply take whatever VLC gives us and check
the delta to the last tick we emitted if it is >interval we emit a new tick
otherwise we ignore the time change.

Martin Klapetek committed changes in [ktp-contact-list] global-presence-chooser.cpp:

Don't remove and insert a temp presence, but only update it if it exists

Inserting the temp presence first and then removing it afterwards causes indexes shift, which in turn can cause problems, like accidental "now playing..." presence being selected and activated and then being deactivated right away when the old temp presence was removed and indexes were shifted again.
This is a clearer approach, which only updates the temp presence if it is already being used.

Jonathan Michael Thomas committed changes in [muon] /ApplicationModel:

Some improvements to ApplicationUpdates:
- Assign m_aptBackend in ApplicationUpdates::setBackend(), before it just always remained null.
- Only listen for QApt signals when the update starts. Due to design deficiencies in LibQApt it can be dangerous to listen for signals when we aren't expecting them.
- On that note, don't handle worker events or errors at all. The ApplicationBackend already handles errors/events, so we'll just be stepping over ApplicationBackend when it tries to handle them.

A combination of the last two items was causing a crash in muon-installer when commits finished, even though muon-installer wasn't directly using ApplicationUpdates. :P

Milian Wolff committed changes in [kdevplatform/1.4] /standardoutputview:

Protect access of QAbstractItemDelegate pointer using a QWeakPointer.

The standard output view allows plugins to provide delegates and
also allows them to keep the ownership of them. While powerful, this
seems to be buggy and can lead to crashes in some cases.

Now we should properly detect the cases where we try to access an
invalid item delegate and output a warning instead of crashing.

It would still be interesting to know which plugin is responsible
for this bug.

Milian Wolff committed changes in [kdevplatform] /:

Let the OutputView take ownership of a job's model and delegate.

This is required to ensure proper functionality of the views
when e.g. a plugin gets unloaded. Previously, this would trigger
crashes due to access of invalid model or delegate pointers.

Now the view will stay functioning even if e.g. the MakeBuilder
gets plugin gets unloaded after a project was compiled, or even
if you close a project while it is being built.

It is still safe to access both, the model and the delegate,
from inside a job as long as the job is running. When a view
gets closed, the job gets cancelled anyways.

Sadly, this is an ABI break and thus cannot be backported to
the KDevplatform 1.4 branch...
