window manager dies after changing window manager decorations
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:42:04 EDT
Description of Problem:
When using KDE's control center and changing decoration of the window manager to
IceWM and set it to the theme "model" the window manager dies.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
To reporduce follow the steps below
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in to the machine using KDE 3
2. Open KDE control center
3. Get to "look and feel"
4. Window Decoration
5. Select IceWM (don't apply yet)
6. Go to the configure tab and select "model" theme
The window manager dies and you can't move the window or type or do anything fancy.
The theme on the window should change to "model" theme and it shouldn't kill
I tested this with the RH 7.2 and KDE 2 and this didn't happen.
Created attachment 54124 [details]
This occurs in both unpatched Skipjack beta 2 and fully up2dated KDE 3.0.0-9.
This happens in Red Hat 7.3 final as well (only in Red Hat though, not in
another well known distribution which also ships with KDE 3.0.0.)
Alternative way to reproduce:
o Change from "KDE default" decoration to Quartz or IceWM. Click Apply.
o All widgets gets the same icon.
o Change to another decoration. Click Apply.
o KWin crashes.
it's fixed in 8.0 release
