Description Teodor 2011-06-14 21:15:41 UTC
Version:           unspecified (using KDE 1.2) 
OS:                Linux

in earlier versions of KDE (can't say exactly ~4.2) there was an ability to place any widget HOW YOU WANT. it was able to put a widget particaly over the screen edges or pixel-to pixel EXACTLY!!!!!! TO THE BORDERS of YOUR SCREEN - for that you should move a widget like you wish and quickly lock the plasma with a key-combination (alt + d,l - or dont remember - nevermind)and plasma freezes in the position you want(then you even unlock the plasma - the widgets are still there untill you touch em). and what i see in 4.6 (dont know exactly from wich version it started): i CANT PLACE WIDGETS LIKE I WANT!!! there is a stupid invisible border that doesn't let me do this - after blockibg  widgets move back to the alignment that limits coordinates of the widgets! but what if i need to place widgets like that? please make widgets free to coordinates - to place them several pixel out of the screen. why are you limiting the posybility of placing icons? and a few words. that would be alsow a good idea to make them moveable everytime - i mean ability to move icons even if the plasma is blocked - offcourse without that transparent bar of every widget. probably it is better to make all of this with an ability to tick those things off for who doesnt need them. and about a bug of "screen corners" "show desktop" - when i want to minimise all windows i move my cursor to the right low corner of the screen and everiyhing start to blinking untill i stop moving the mouse, lookes like everything minimising and maximasing repetedly wile i continuing to move the mouse. Could you make it to show the desktop just once while the cursor is still in the corner? like in gnome+compiz 

Reproducible: Always

Hello! Plasma 4 was replaced by Plasma 5 four years ago by the KDE community. In that time we have made great strides in stability and functionality. We are closing all Plasma 4 bugs as most of them are no longer applicable to the new frameworks Plasma 5 is built upon. If you could, please re-test with the latest version of Plasma 5, and submit a new bug to "plasmashell" if you continue to have an issue. Thank you!
