Description Ovidiu D. Niţan 2011-05-26 09:25:30 UTC
Version:           unspecified (using KDE 4.6.3) 
OS:                Linux

The notifications aren't shown when watching a full-screen video (par example) - that's a good thing, because we don't want to be disturbed by them while we concentrate on the movie's action. The problem is that they become visible when they're hiding - more exactly, when the sliding animation is performed. I tried to deactivate the sliding effect, but the bug still occurs because of the fading effect. The only way to fix this issues is to deactivate all animation effects.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Watch a movie in fullscreen mode
2. Make a notification to appear (e.g. by running "sleep 3 && notify-osd "test")

Actual Results:  
The notification's pop-up appears while it's performing the hiding animation.

Expected Results:  
The notification popups shouldn't be visible at all

I'm using the NVIDIA's proprietary driver, version 270.41.19. The Qt's version is 4.7.3.

Actually, it seems that any window which is closing appears on top of the other windows while the closing animation effect is perfomed. So this is a bug related to KWin, not to Plasma...

Cannot reproduce.

Version: KDE SC 4.7.3 using Qt 4.7.4
OS: Arch Linux (kernel 3.1.0-4)

Video players used: smplayer, dragon player

The issue doesn't happen using the default settings (fresh user account).

Bug still present in KDE 4.8.0

Alvaro Fernando García:
- Make sure that "Sliding popups" effect is activated in Desktop Effects
- Play a video
- Run, in terminal, "sleep 5 && notify-send test"
- Fullscreen the video

The notification should appear over the window. Here's a video describing this issue:

As you see on the video, on 00:07 the notification popup is visible while it's hiding. I'm also changing this to KWin because it seems to be a issue related to it (with BeGeneric animations, this bug still appears).

It's on my 4.9 TODO list. Hopefully I get to it
