Description Lukas 2009-01-18 17:26:31 UTC
Version:            (using Devel)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Compiled sources

I had the same problem running Kubuntu 8.10, now I have it with OpenSUSE 11.1 kde 4.1.87 (KDE 4.1.87 (KDE 4.2 >= 20090101)) "release 3.1"

Video card: Nvidia GeForce Go 7600/PCI/SSE2 with drivers 2.1.2 NVIDIA 177.82
Other hardware: 3GB ram, T5600 1.82GHZ dualcore, TwinView 2 monitors (same bug with only one monitor too).


Then any JAVA based application is in focus panel is "behaving wrong". Screen shots will explain better.

Plain Screen shot when OOo Writer is focused:

Plain Screen shot when Firefox is focused:

This bug appears when any OpenOffice/ Zend studio/ Eclipse is in focus. Sometimes even with Adobe Reader 8.


This behaviour comes in to action when eg. Writer is active window AND when I hover my mouse over any plasma widget (hovering empty space does not reproduce bug). Despite widgets/ panes became unreadable they are working. eg. right click calls menu (unreadable as any other widget), left click brings application to focus.

For normal use I have to focus any "normal" application like Firefox and hover each widget to bring back the correct view.

For any detailed info please contact me 1lukas1 [at] gmailCOM
P.S. If I had to guess, what create this bug, I would suspect plasma transparency feature, nVidia driver or problems with RAM usage (JAVA is hungry for ram, Adobe reader mostly bugs with large eBooks)
