Description Steven R. 2005-12-28 18:52:13 UTC
Version:           1.0 (using KDE KDE 3.5.0)
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages
OS:                Linux

I have two monitors with Xinerama.  KMag only magnifies from screen 1 (even if started from screen 2).  If I move my cursor on to the screen 2, KMag just zooms the edge of the screen 1.  It still tracks the mouse, i.e., the second monitor is beside the first and if I move the mouse up and down, KMag goes up and down, it just stays on the edge.

I can confirm this (I'm also using Ubuntu packages...).

KMag can only be made to display on the second screen by using the "display rectangle" tool. In the "under-mouse" tool, it truncates the x-coordinate of the mouse cursor to the edge of the first screen.

This is also debian bug http://bugs.debian.org/281312

Dear Bug Submitter,

This bug has been stagnant for a long time. Could you help us out and re-test if the bug is valid in the latest version? I am setting the status to NEEDSINFO pending your response, please change the Status back to REPORTED when you respond.

Thank you for helping us make KDE software even better for everyone!

Oh hey, another ancient bug to clean up.  I can happily report that sometime in the last thirteen years that this has been fixed!  Cheers
