Version: (using KDE 4.2.4)
Installed from: Fedora RPMs
From time to time I'm unable to open the context-menus in konsole to e.g. copy/paste. Opening the menubar however works. I'm filing this bug for plasma since I believe it might not be restricted to a problem with konsole but maybe a general problem with mouse-actions.
(Lately also had the case were I was unable to mark text with the mouse until after a KDE-restart etc.)
Do you mean the context menu exatly in the shell or on the tab bar of konsole?
On the "big black window" itself. Marking still works in those cases, but you can't right-click on the text to "copy" it. Keyboard-shortcut or choosing from the menue above works though.
Haven't yet figured out how to provoke the error. Is there any "daemon" that I could look for if it happens again, which might have crashed or so?
It looks like a problem on your KDE version: using current trunk I'm not able to reproduce the bug (and it is not a problem outside konsole).
Could you upgrade to a more recent KDE version and try it again?
Unfortunately, as said, it only happens for me approx once a day or so and I'm unsure how to reproduce it. But I'll keep an eye on it.
Upgrading (outside of the distribution's cycle) imho is not really an option, since I experience the problem on a production-system (but already using updates-testing-updates).
