Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 719842
Font in maximized Konsole window gets darker after short time
Last modified: 2012-08-07 15:01:18 EDT
Description of problem:
When konsole window is maximized or in full screen mode after about 20 seconds the font gets noticeably darker. It looks kind of similar to a window which has lost focus.
This happens with compositing both enabled and disabled.
Typing, clicking in the konsole, using konsole's menu doesn't prevent the font from getting darker.
I have a two monitor configuration and I have noticed that this only happens on one of the screens.
Grabbing the title bar to move the window to a different monitor restores the original brightness.
Switching to another window and then switching back restores the original brightness.
Having another window on top of konsole partially covering it prevents the font brightness from changing if the other window is more then 50 % on the same monitor as konsole.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open konsole
2. Maximize it or select "Full Screen Mode" from Settings menu
3. Wait about 20 seconds
Font in the konsole gets darker. It's a gradual process.
Look of the konsole doesn't change by itself.
Video driver - this is happening with both nvidia and nouveau drivers.
I cannot attach a meaningful screen-shot since the effect is not visible in screen-shot images.
This message is a notice that Fedora 15 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 15. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '15' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 15 reached end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
