Description lucazade 2012-06-18 14:41:33 UTC
When the session startup and the panel is fully loaded it automatically appears the brightness dialog
then after some seconds it disappears.

I've applied the kubuntu backport beta ppa (kde 4.8.90) to my Ubuntu Precise installation.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. startup kde session
2. the brightness popup automatically
3. then after some seconds it closes

Expected Results:  
no brightness popup expected

Normally not noticeable for the average user (that uses a splash screen)
But definitly visible when plasma crashes and restarts
Comment 3 Myriam Schweingruber 2012-06-20 07:52:47 UTC
Confirmed based on comment #2

"Normally not noticeable for the average user (that uses a splash screen)"
This is noticeable for every kind of users (what is the meaning of average user????)... 
I have the splash screen enabled (it is by default) and the issue is reproducible on different machines.

Confirming the bug with 4.9 RC2. Had it only on first startup after upgrade from 4.8, though.
Comment 6 Ralf Jung 2012-09-13 19:06:22 UTC
I can confirm the issue, and it happens on each login. Users with slow PCs probably don't see it, but it's clearly visible on my system.

various fix for battery plasmoid

Fix access undefined value warning, when calling function in
logic.js, pmSource.data can still be null since it might not connect at
that time.
When brightness is passively changed from outer environment, don't
trigger the dataSource service call with a bool protector called
Move more code to DataModel.onDataChanged, under the same idea with:
https://git.reviewboard.kde.org/r/108280/ , hence the plasmoid.status
will always be the correct value, the changing of plasmoid.status cause
tray make popup unfocus.
Remove ugly hack of resetBatteryData in logic.js.
Fix some anchor related warning in PopupDialog.qml
