Description Romain D. 2012-07-29 20:03:04 UTC
Encountered after update from 4.8

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start a GUI program from the appmenu or any launcher
2. Cursor effect should show the program icon bouncing
3. program icon is somewhat moving but not vertically anymore (getting distorted but not jumping)

This happened btw 4.8 and 4.9.0, comments on IRC says it works well with a new profile but the major update from 4.8 to 4.9 might be broken.
Comment 1 Martin Flöser 2012-07-29 20:10:12 UTC
I can confirm.
Comment 2 Thomas Lübking 2012-07-29 20:52:56 UTC
Bleh. I mean "blast".
I can see why.

This bug reappeared on my system after upgrading to KDE 4.11 RC2 (4.10.97).
This worked fine up to and including RC1 (4.10.95).

re-fix bouncannoyance

Luckily it's now simpler to fix.
While the fix is a partial reversion of the other fix.

Tested all three annoyances - bounce jumps happily around, blink (and again: really?) switches between a black and white rect (why?) and passive is just the icon attached and i can't trigger glitches.

Tested on https://git.reviewboard.kde.org/r/111693/ for "smoother" icon following.

That patch fixes the bouncing cursor for me.
Thanks for the fast response.

Haven't tried that reviewboard patch yet, though.
