Description Volker Kuhlmann 2011-05-10 13:32:20 UTC
Application: kwin (4.6.00 (4.6.0) "release 6")
KDE Platform Version: 4.6.00 (4.6.0) "release 6"
Qt Version: 4.7.1
Operating System: Linux x86_64
Distribution: "openSUSE 11.4 (x86_64)"

-- Information about the crash:
- What I was doing when the application crashed:

Tried out some screen edges.  Added desktop grid to top edge, works. Added "flip switch all desktops" to bottom edge, several lockups of the GUI, except moving mouse pointer, result. The panel digital clock's second display stopped updating about 3 times. Filled input with various mouse movements and clicks. kwin crash handler appears.

-- Backtrace:
Application: KWin (kwin), signal: Segmentation fault

Comment 1 Thomas Lübking 2011-05-10 21:51:16 UTC
Please check whether the flipswitch freeze is bug #261323 (turning of the window name display should work around)

The crashtrace seems to derive from a window close from the desktop grid, just that "wild input while the kwin eventloop is in no valid state" can be expected to "somehow" crash anyway ;-)
Comment 2 Volker Kuhlmann 2011-05-11 10:28:35 UTC
Thanks Thomas. Nice gimmick - just to show Linux can do it too ;-)

Took me ages to find what setting you were talking about - desktop effect, setup for flip switch, display window titles. Default is ticked, unticking it seems to prevent the crash, I tried it about 10 times successfully.

Btw usability problem: when activated from screen edge I have R hand on mouse, left hand to press tab to cycle through the windows. No way to select though. I'm not moving L hand to press enter, and don't necessarily want to take R hand off mouse. Now LMB to select would be cool...

Thanks -V
Comment 3 Thomas Lübking 2011-05-11 12:05:00 UTC
ok, marking as dupe since the  precondition of this backtrace is completely uncertain and likely an invalid state.

About the usability: I wasn't even aware that flipswitch (and only flipswitch, not coverswitch?) is available from the screencorner.

In this context i'd rather say id would make sense to unlink the effect from the tabbox and allow to mousewheel through windows and select the front one with a left click.
(moving the mouse to a corner, and then start alt+tab and then w/o the ability to autoleave/activate on top of it sounds mega-clumsy, so i rather wouldn't waste the corner for this at all ;-)

Feel free to open a wish like this =)
Out of curiosity: does Mikeysoft do this? - I mean: why only flipswitch -next to oc. poresent windows, which started as non alt+tab and is designed towards this- and the half baked mouse+kbd approach looks alot like Redmond :-P
