Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 840303
Sometimes cannot type in konsole if multiple konsole windows opened.
Last modified: 2012-09-03 10:05:31 EDT
Description of problem:
After upgrade to RHEL 6.3. Chances are: I cannot type in konsole if multiple konsole windows. Only I seek out the first opened konsole windows and press "Ctrl-C", then problem gone.
I have never got this problem before RHEL 6.3. (I use 6.1 and 6.2 since they release or even before release)
The only changes made to RHEL 6.3 konsole is Bug #631481
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kdebase-4.3.4-5.el6.x86_64 (RHEL 6.3 GA)
1 out 100
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to open 3+ konsole windows.
2. Type in each konsole windows and use "alt+tab" to switch windows.
cannot type, all types goes to first opened windows.
no such issue.
I will try to downgrade to confirm this regression. Will update tag and title later once regression confirmed. Request blocker for RHEL 6.4, please reject if no customer face or other concern.
Still got problem even downgrade kdebase to kdebase-4.3.4-4.el6.x86_64.
Will investigate more.
i tried to reproduce this issue with the above steps, but it's not reproduceable on my test machine with 6.3. I don't think the fix for #631481 can cause the regression.
Could you please try with a fresh new user? thanks
I also hit this problem even in KDE 4.8.3 (other distribution), so I assume this is upstream bug.
In my current RHEL 6.3, I can easily trigger this issue by press 'alt+t' (my shortcut for konsole) 4+ times.
Will try the new user thing and let you know.
I tried with new user. Cannot hit this issue.
My konsole is configured to start up with black full screen windows:
1. No app broader.
2. No KDE panel.
3. No menu of konsole.
4. No tab of konsole.
5. Customized both konsole colour theme and kde color theme.
I tried item 1) and 2) in new user, cannot hit the issue.
Will try the rest once my work shift done.
Thanks for your patience.
I found the root cause of it:
I have fcitx (A Chinese input method) version 4.x installed and having these env:
After fcitx start. Konsole will stuck when multiple windows started.
I will close this bug as not a bug and investigate on fcitx.
Thanks for keeping with me.
Will fix this problem but lose input method support in qt3 software.
Just heads up: qt3 QT_IM_MODULE=fcitx support fixed by upgrade fcitx to 4.2.5.
