Description Tomasz Kołosowski 2013-05-05 22:22:36 UTC
After emptying the trash, notification that poped out had "undefined" text inside it. Screenshot in URL. I use polish translation.
Happens only when you remove larger amount of data, as small removes generate no popup at all. Haven't tried to reproduce it with popup because i find nothing more to remove, sorry :P

Reproducible: Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put large(r) amount of data in your trash
2. Empty it

I daily produce a lot of trash and delete it afterwards. Therefore I can confirm this bug on KDE 4.11.3, Arch Linux. The "undefined" message happens every time I empty larger amount of data from trash can.
Comment 4 Ruman Gerst 2013-12-03 18:31:37 UTC
Also confirmed for Kubuntu 13.10.

Add a infoMessage call to kio_trash can fix the problem("trash empty popup" with "undefined" titlte.)

I don't want to sound picky but you made a typo there: "emtpy trash"

Cheers :)
Comment 7 Cjacker 2013-12-31 11:54:25 UTC
Sorry about that:-)

this workaround or fix only fix the "empty trash" problem.

It seems "restore a file" still had such problem, maybe in some copy/move Kio jobs in trashimpl.cpp, I did not find a correct way to fix them.

My system is  Kubuntu 14.04, KDE 4.13.0, x64. This: "undefined [Finished]" notification happens every time I empty the trash.
Comment 9 Vincas Dargis 2014-05-07 19:50:16 UTC
I can confirm, Kubuntu 14.04 x64, "undefined" notification is still there.
