Version: (using KDE KDE 3.5.0)
When you enable showing window thumbnails in kicker's pager appletm then log out and log in, the setting is lost. Thumbnails are turned off.
The bug is also in KDE 3.5.1
Also present in 3.5.2
(OS: Linux, Distribution: Archlinux, Package: Official distribution packages)
This looks like 800x600 and less resolution specific ? I just went through the code... and heres what it says..
if (desk.width() <= 800)
I changed my monitor res to 1024x786 (very horrible refresh rates here 15"monitor..pls dont laugh..i'm stuck with it. heh) and previews were on. Previews look great on 800x600.. I wonder what made the devs add that forced check. Is it possible for Aaron to change that 800 to.. say 640 ? 8)
I'm sure that changing it to something less than 800 will do the job.. but gonna recompile and make sure.
Forgot to mention the file name. Its kdebase-3.5.3/kicker/applets/minipager/pagerapplet.cpp
Yep, thats it. I recompiled with that modification and it works. Hope the forced preview disabling will be removed/modified.
Created attachment 17093 [details]
could you please try the attached (untested) patch? i can't test it right now
against 3.5 and would like to have this fix in for 3.5.x. it's a bit of a hack,
but it should set the default to false, preserving the default as false but
allowing the user to override it. thanks =)
SVN commit 565544 by aseigo:
allow manually turning on of previews in the pager at low screen
thanks to vinay shastry for testing the patch.
