Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 66205
Konqueror download status does not close

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.0.0-10; Linux)
Description of problem:
When you download a file (like an rpm package) with Konqueror, the download
status dialogue doesn't disappear when the transfer is complete. It is stuck
at 99% or 100% with 1 second estimated time left, and the Cancel button is
still there. You can tell the file download was complete because it already
renamed the file to the actual name rather than the partial hidden dotfile
name that it uses during transfer.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Red Hat Linux 7.3
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download any file like an RPM package
2. Allow the file transfer to finish
Gives no visual feedback that the transfer completed.
It should either close the download dialogue window, or somehow indicate that
it finished the transfer and change the Cancel button to Close.
I can't reproduce this.
I have just experienced it on another fresh install of Red Hat 7.3 today. It
seems to be intermittent... occured twice today, once with an RPM and once with
The OGGs were from this page.
Occured in Limbo beta once out of 15 downloads. I still can't figure out how to
trigger this behavior consistently.
Still happens in kdebase-3.1-9 in Phoebe3. Occurs often with that same OGG
download page mentioned above.
Still happens in kdebase-3.1-12
I can't reproduce this with RHL 9 with the same kdebase as you last specified. Can you give a
few URLs that you run into this with? Does Kget try to automagically run for you as well?
If your konqueror is set to close the download window when complete this doesn't happen. If it
is set to keep the window open, then very often (but not always) it stops at 99% with a
complete file and "Cancel" button is still there.
It happens almost every time with the OGGs on that page above, and downloading Java
rpm.bin files from http://www.javasoft.com.
This behavior has been this way since KDE 2.2.x, perhaps earlier.
I can't reproduce this. Are you, by chance, using upgrade on upgrade? So you've moved from
KDE 2 -> 3 -> 3.1 with the same configs?
Nope, I never do upgrades. These are all fresh installs on a dozen different
systems with different versions of Red Hat Linux over the years.
Like I said, it doesn't happen all the time.
Seems okay now.
