Description Alexander Potashev 2010-10-31 02:58:54 UTC
Version:           unspecified (using KDE 4.5.2) 
OS:                Linux

1. enable "Thumbnail Aside" effect
2. activate the effect for one of the windows
3. lock screen. The thumbnail does not hide.

Similar issue: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=179924

Reproducible: Always
Comment 1 Martin Flöser 2010-12-18 12:55:45 UTC
Confirmed and not surprising: the thumbnail is always rendered. The effect needs to know when the screen is locked.

It has nothing to do with #179924

Notify effects when the screen gets locked

EffectsHandlerImpl starts to monitor DBus for the screen being locked and
provides this information to the Effect system by allowing them to ask
whether the screen is currently locked and by emitting a signal when the
screen gets locked/unlocked.

This information is needed to ensure that no private data is shown on the
screen. The following effects are adjusted:
* taskbar thumbnails
* thumbnail aside
* mouse mark
* screen shot
