RHEL7 public beta

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start a KDE Xorg session
2. Start gnome-terminal

Comment 2 RHEL Program Management 2014-03-22 06:22:14 UTC
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Comment 5 Marek Stana 2015-05-11 11:33:20 UTC

this problem still persist. Also when you drag to resize window its working but then when yum set some Terminal window size it shrinks again. I dont see this bug in gnome. 


Comment 6 Gordan Bobic 2015-05-11 11:38:10 UTC
It also only seems to affect gnome-terminal from gnome 3.x. I have switched to using mate-terminal from the Gnome 2.0 Mate fork and that works fine. So the bug is in Gnome 3, not in KDE.

Comment 7 Debarshi Ray 2020-02-11 15:20:58 UTC
Are you still seeing this bug?

Comment 8 Debarshi Ray 2020-02-12 13:36:04 UTC
RHEL 7 is approaching its Extended Life Cycle Support phase. Given the non-critical nature of this bug (there's always Konsole for KDE), it's not fit for RHEL 7 anymore, and KDE isn't part of RHEL 8.

Comment 9 RHEL Program Management 2020-02-12 13:36:12 UTC
Development Management has reviewed and declined this request. You may appeal this decision by using your Red Hat support channels, who will make certain  the issue receives the proper prioritization with product and development management.


Comment 10 Gordan Bobic 2020-02-21 09:26:01 UTC
This no longer happens with current versions of KDE and gnome-terminal.
