Description Derrick J. Wippler 2007-10-02 00:54:39 UTC
Version:            (using KDE Devel)
Installed from:    Compiled sources
Compiler:          g++ (GCC) 4.1.2 (Ubuntu 4.1.2-0ubuntu4) 
OS:                Linux

0182-argb-visuals-default patch in qt-copy trunk assumes 32bit depth. This causes problems on dual head 24bit depth display.

The visual problem created by the 0182-argb-visuals-default patch can be seen here.
In addition the application ( kwrite in this case ) is extremely slow.
This problem is not isolated to just KDE applications. The qt demo and example applications in the qt-copy tree also exhibit this behavior.
