Description Rex Dieter 2009-04-25 20:48:13 UTC
summary says it all.

Comment 1 Sven Lankes 2009-05-13 19:42:50 UTC
From

http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/14447

I have found a KDE-based work around that fixes the bug in the plasmoid code. See the KDE bug report above for more details but if you want to maintain the bugfix, it is a one-liner in kdeplasma-addons-4.2.3/applets/rssnow/scroller.cpp:
comment out scroller.cpp line 65:
//setFlag(QGraphicsItem::ItemClipsChildrenToShape, true);
This flag causes the bug, and the work-around's only negaitive effect is that the scrolling stories will not be clipped outside the plasmoid's window while animating. That is a little ugly, but at least operational until Qt is fixed.

As noone upstream seems to be working on patching this issue for 4.2.x, we might want to add the patch.

Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2009-05-18 19:46:31 UTC
I'll snag this.

Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2009-05-18 19:59:18 UTC
Oh gosh, with the patch, it's pretty darn unusable still.  I'll post a screenshot.

Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2009-05-18 20:00:29 UTC
bleh, on logout/login not nearly as bad. ok, people will complain, but it's at least better than before alright.

Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2009-05-18 20:15:00 UTC
Patch included in kdeplasma-addons-4.2.3-2, which should be done separately from the kde-4.2.3 update (include with qt-4.5.1 or do by itself).

Comment 6 Jaroslav Reznik 2009-05-19 10:34:56 UTC
Hmm, it's better but still looks strange as it's missing clipping...
