After the login the kile splash screen is shown on one of my running activities albeit kile is running on the other avtivity
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have two running activities.
2. Start Kile (or other programs with splash screens. Haven't tested so far) on one activity and switch to the other.
3. Restart/Log out and back in.
Splash screen is shown on the current activity.
Splash screen is only shown if Kile (the program) is running on the current activity.
Could be bug #274931
Does the window remain when you suspend compositing? (Shift+Alt+F12)
In case, can you please open konsole and run "xprop > splash.props" then click the splash screen (cursor turned into a cross) and attach the output?
while I think it's the same as bug #274931 I'm also wondering whether that's a bug at all. I mean getting the information that Kile is being started right now is not a bad idea. That's why we have splash screens in the first place. IIRC splash screens are also on all desktops.
Martin, this is a good point. Still, with activities it is a little bit different, I think. They do not extend your working area the way multiple desktops do. Instead, they are a complete different working area.
Maybe it would be possible to supplement the splashscreen with the information '..on activity xy'.
I will test if it is the same without compositing the next time I reboot.

Yes the splash screen remains without compositing. I have attached the xprop output.
