Build Identifier: 


When I have a long filename, dolphin breaks it in multilines. The problem is with the botton line used to show the current cursor item (the one that changes using ctrl+arrows). The line touches the last line when it uses two lines for the filename and it even cross the text when I have three or more lines.

The screenshot will show it better

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a file with long names with blank spaces
2.Open dolphin
3.Select the file
Actual Results:  
4.The line crosses the filename

Expected Results:  
4.The line should always be bellow the filename

Thanks for the report. Could you please check whether starting Dolphin from the konsole with:
dolphin --graphicssystem raster
resolves this issue?
Comment 3 Luiz Angelo De Luca 2012-03-31 20:49:57 UTC
No diference. However, if I change kde fonts, the problem is gone. Maybe I should report this directly to kubuntu?

I did some more testing...

In a clean user, the problem is present. If I change the "general font" to other than ubuntu, the problem disapears. If I go back to ubuntu font and change its size to something big (16pt), the problem disapears.
If I go back to the default font size, the problem is back. Maybe it is a problem with ubuntu font or with kde/qt that does not play nice with ubuntu font.

Also, it might be something special in AA settings that kde config cannot handle. If I change anything in AA settings and undo it, it never goes back to normal. The only way to return to the confortable default setup is removing .fonts.conf.
Comment 5 Peter Penz 2012-04-01 08:52:45 UTC
Interesting... I still guess it might be an issue how Dolphin calculates the required height. I'll need to download the KUbuntu font and will check whether I can reproduce this issue. Thanks for your further investigations, this helped to minimize the possible root causes. I'm currently busy with some other tasks but will have a look until the end of next week.

Maybe this could help: http://font.ubuntu.com/
Comment 7 Peter Penz 2012-04-02 08:37:19 UTC
I could reproduce the problem with Ubuntu-fonts when using a very small size :-) I'll check during the next days whether it is the fault of Dolphin...

Comment 9 Peter Penz 2012-04-02 20:22:53 UTC
The issue was a little bit more complicated to solve than I thought initially. It seems to work fine but it would be risky to backport this to 4.8.x so it will be released with 4.9.0 where we have beta-test-cycles.
Comment 10 Luiz Angelo De Luca 2012-04-03 00:15:33 UTC
Great! So it wasn't a problem with Ubuntu font?

Maybe (k)ubuntu people would be interested on this bug. However, 12.04 uses 4.8.x. :-(
