Description Kai Uwe Broulik 2011-11-29 13:14:01 UTC
Version:           unspecified (using Devel) 
OS:                Linux

The new QML device notifier does not provide a tooltip when hovering.

Reproducible: Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Hover over the device notifier

Actual Results:  
Nothing happens

Expected Results:  
A tooltip saying "There are no devices availabel" or "Removable Media - None attached" (or so) or the number of available devices appears.

I did not test it with a device plugged in as I do not have one here.
Also, device notifier was hidden in systray, so I accessed it through the hidden icons popup.

I wasn't able to reproduce this. When I hover over the widget a tooltip open and said "There are no devices available" so this may be a bug on your side.

I was talking about the new QML device notifier replaxing the existing one in 4.8, not the current ont shipped with 4.7.x.
Comment 3 Marco Martin 2011-11-30 09:09:25 UTC
tooltips were recently re-added, can you try it again?
Comment 4 Franz Trischberger 2012-04-10 07:44:20 UTC
I don't get tooltips. Currently running 4.8.2, but they are non-existent since 4.8.0.
Qt-version is 4.8.1.

This seems to be an issue with all QML plasmoids that really needs to be sorted out. I just applied the new QML battery plasmoid that is on reviewboard and guess what: no tooltip.
Comment 6 Reza 2012-06-29 12:34:08 UTC
battery plasmoid seems ok.
i tried device notifier there was no tooltip even when i plug-in my external hdd
