Having mouse over a "icon" hints are shown, context menu is correctly accessible

Comment 2 Artem 2008-11-16 11:12:00 UTC
Found one very interesting thing, system tray is broken, when there is xorg.conf, booting X server without xorg.conf file - systray looks correct.

Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2008-11-26 05:02:19 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.

Comment 4 Steven M. Parrish 2009-01-09 17:47:55 UTC
Please report this upstream at http://bugs.kde.org  Then add upstream info to this report, and we will monitor upstream for resolution.

Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2009-01-09 17:53:35 UTC
Naw, with kde-4.2 on the horizon, it will almost certainly improve any/all systray-related issues.  Let's wait on that.

Comment 6 Kevin Kofler 2009-01-09 19:11:38 UTC
Right, this is almost certainly fixed in 4.2 by the systray rewrite.

Comment 7 Jaroslav Reznik 2009-01-12 08:52:25 UTC
It's much more better in 4.2, nearly fixed - I encountered this issue once in 4.2 but I'm not able to reproduce it (latest trunk, nearly RC1). So it's OK now for daily use, please wait for 4.2 release.

Comment 8 Ngo Than 2009-01-28 13:27:33 UTC
it's fixed in 4.2.0. i cannot reproduce it anymore

Comment 10 Kurt Bechstein 2009-02-06 03:56:23 UTC
Just updated my kde to the kde 4.2 packages from updates-testing and I'm still seeing this problem with the systray plasmoid.  Is there something else that needs changed?  I saw a mention of something with the xorg config mentioned.

Comment 12 Kurt Bechstein 2009-02-06 14:57:04 UTC
I just ran the latest updates from updates-testing as there were some new packages released today and the systray plasmoid is still broken for me.  Any information I can provide that will help?

Comment 13 Jaroslav Reznik 2009-02-06 15:07:20 UTC
I'm not sure we can do more than wait for upstream to fix it. It's much more better - overlapping is gone but background redraw issues are still visible.

Comment 14 Rex Dieter 2009-02-06 15:07:42 UTC
shrug, broken is relative.  It's better, but remaining bugs lie with qt it seems, and for that to be addressed, qt-4.5 needs to land.

Comment 16 Kevin Kofler 2009-02-09 18:02:16 UTC
So what should we do with this? Reopen and take off the "fixed by 4.2" list or let it get closed with 4.2?

Comment 17 Rex Dieter 2009-02-09 18:12:27 UTC
It's as "fixed" as we can do anything about it, keep it on the tracker, imo.
