After upgrading from 4.8.0 to 4.8.1 smooth tasks crashes plasma
Comment 1 Christoph Feck 2012-03-09 12:04:03 UTC
Please add the backtrace of the crash. For more information, see http://techbase.kde.org/User:DarioAndres/How_to_provide_more_information_about_crash_reports

I think it's mostly a matter of simply getting it to build on/for kde-4.8, apparenlty the latest release posted on http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/Smooth+Tasks?content=101586  (wip-2010-11-06)  doesn't build against recent kde releases (esp 4.8)

Created attachment 69434 [details]

Thanks for the update. It looks like SmoothTasks needs to be recompiled for KDE 4.8, as it uses private API from Plasma.
Comment 5 Alessandro Buggin 2012-03-09 20:30:28 UTC
I'm happy to do my part.
I can riproduce this problem every time that I start plasma-desktop (if you need other backtraces).
I'd like to know how did you trace down the problem from my attachment (what is the number of the problematic line? I cannot see from myself).
Also I'm running Fedora (if it's interesting).
Thank you for your time.

Smooth tasks is not a part of KDE SC, but a third party applet. Since the bug has already been reported there, and the applet seems quite dead, there is not a lot anyone can do about it (except for picking up development again). Closing as downstream.
