Description Diego Iastrubni 2008-10-11 01:27:13 UTC
Version:            (using Devel)
Installed from:    Compiled sources

When plasma is running in RTL mode (test with --reverse) the icons position should be mirrored on the X axis. 

Before closing this bug we should test if this is desired... so in theory, a hacker can work on supporting this, and after testing we will dump this feature. Be prepared :)

If anyone wants to mark 118929 as a dup:

This one is for plasma, and 118929 is for kdesktop. In practice both ask for the same thing, but in different applications/technologies.
Comment 2 Aaron J. Seigo 2008-10-18 22:21:22 UTC
this is a bug in Qt, the QGraphics*Layout classes do not get notified of layout direction.

urg.. comment #2 was actually supposed to be on bug #172559 ...

as for dup'ing the kdesktop one, they are separate apps so shouldn't be marked
as duplicates.
Comment 5 Diego Iastrubni 2008-10-18 22:47:59 UTC

172558 should be fixed by replacing QGraphicsLinearLayout (or implementing a smarter one), and this one by fixing the layout manager used for the dashboard (based on QGraphicsGridLayout ..? or are we using it directly?)

IMHO those are separate tasks and not dups.

urg... please ignore my previous comment. it for another bug. sorry for the noise.

When working in a Hebrew UI, I think in terms of Right to Left, so it would be very confusing for me if the UI was still LTR. I am in favor of this bug.

Note that I feel that this bug is now a dupe of 118929 (since it is moved to plasma) so I will cross post there as well. I will let the OP mark as dupe to be sure, however.
