Description Kyuso Cahi 2005-08-25 10:20:47 EDT
Description of problem:

Kmail will not respond to any keyboard or mouse events in any components (menu,
window, etc.)
Kmail gives an error while quitting, but doesn't actually die

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run kde through kdm
2. start kmail from anywhere (command line, menu, etc.)
3. click on anything after kmail opens
4. quit

Actual results:
1. No response from events
2. when quit, gives 'QInputContext: no input method context available', and
doesn't die (only closes window)

Expected results:
1. select menu or item when key/mouse event
2. quit without error message

Additional info:
This happened after updating from kde 3.3 to kde 3.4; kmail worked perfectly in
kde 3.3.

Updating from kdebase-3.4.2-0.fc3.1 to kdebase-3.4.2-0.fc3.3 solved the
following worse problems:
In kmail, everytime a key or mouse event pressed, an error is displayed: QInput
not ... available (don't remember exact phrase) and no other response

kedit works with foreign input method and key events, so it must be specific to

When running kmail from another workstation with kde 3.3 using shared home
repository, it hangs with a process running:
  kdeinit: kconf_update --check kmail.upd
kmail 3.4 must have modified settings that kmail 3.3 can't decode properly.

FC3 is not supported anymore. You should please update to FC5 current release.
The new kde-3.5.2 in FC5 update should fix this above issue. Thanks for your report.
