Description Colin J Thomson 2022-04-11 18:29:35 UTC
SUMMARY:
I have the Sticky Notes app in my Taskbar and it does not raise correctly when clicking on it. I just get a tiny square popup.
I tested it on the Desktop (folder view) and it works as it should. Here I rolled back the kf5-plasma package to 5.92 and all works as it should.

ZaWertun who maintains the fedora-copr-kde5 COPR  Confirmed - reverting commit:
https://invent.kde.org/frameworks/plasma-framework/-/commit/29d31c159503e454b3c483b0b7eb180ce0ee926a 
fixes this issue.

STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. Have the sticky notes in the taskbar and attempt to open by clicking on it. 

OBSERVED RESULT
It fails to open correctly, a tiny square just pops up so not unusable. 

EXPECTED RESULT
It should open up fully when clicked, when placed in the Taskbar like it does on the Desktop.

Dialog: Do not update layout parameters while hidden

Wait until the dialog it's shown to position the components within.
Otherwise we do it based on a random size.

JFYI I have notified packagers about backporting the fix to Frameworks 5.93 (because Frameworks doesn't have minor bugfix releases). So if you're still experiencing the issue, go bug your distros' packagers to get on that. :)

What if the distro is Neon? I've brought it up in several Matrix channels to radio silence.
Comment 9 Nate Graham 2022-05-05 18:31:48 UTC
Neon devs never seem interested in backporting fixes. I don't think that's a goal of the distro. "Always echo upstream KDE" more or less.
