Bluecurve KWin theme shows pixel noise for "sticky" icon
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:06 EST
Description of problem:
The Bluecurve KWin theme's "sticky" ("show on all desktops") icon isn't
displayed properly, instead some garbage pixels are being shown.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set the KWin window decoration theme to Bluecurve.
2. Enable the "sticky" icon. (AFAICT, this is the default with
There's some random pixels not representing anything.
A recognizable icon should be displayed.
I'm willing to try to hunt this down in the source code if I'm the only one
who still cares about Bluecurve. ;-)
So, given that I'd have to look into that for Quarticurve-kwin (the KDE 4 port)
anyway, I looked at the problem and found it: someone must have changed
BASE_BUTTON_SIZE from 16 to 17 at some point, but the pixel data for the "pin"
icons is all in 16×16. I'm currently trying to figure out the best way to fix
it. (I have the icon itself fixed, but the masking is still not right in my

Patch to fix "show on all desktops" in Bluecurve KWin theme
So this one is the good one. Masking now works too (I had to explicitly fill
the extra row and column there). Than, can you please apply this and push this
bugfix to F7 (maybe even FC6 too) ASAP?

Corresponding specfile patch
And here's the corresponding specfile patch.
Kevin, i have taken a look at the patch, it looks fine. But i think it's
better only change BASE_BUTTON_SIZE to 16.
I will ask David as package maintainer to push this bugfix to F7. Thanks
The reason I did my patch this way is that 1. I didn't know why and when
BASE_BUTTON_SIZE was changed and 2. I didn't want to change the looks except
for fixing that bug. BASE_BUTTON_SIZE is used in a few more places.
Now that you got the KDE 3.5.7 updates out to testing, may I kindly remind you
of this bug?
It's now fixed in redhat-artwork-7_0_0-11_fc7. I will push it into F7 update
redhat-artwork-7.0.0-11.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
I marked my patches obsolete because they are not what went in.
I tested the package from testing and it works fine (in fact I'm running it now
without any problems).
redhat-artwork-7.0.0-11.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
Can you please apply the fix to devel too (now that we're probably going to
still ship KWin v3 in F8)?
