Description nydel 2014-01-29 06:42:43 UTC
Application: plasma-desktop (4.11.3)
KDE Platform Version: 4.11.3
Qt Version: 4.8.4
Operating System: Linux 3.11.0-15-generic x86_64
Distribution: Ubuntu 13.10

-- Information about the crash:
- What I was doing when the application crashed:

all programs were closed except for one instance of konsole using tmux shell and sudo as "sudo -i" to run updates and upgrades with "apt-get" -- i did upgrade my distribution, including the latest ubuntu kernel. afterwards i ran a few safe, non-aggressive commands to clean and remove outdated files that became as such during &/or after the distribution upgrade.

- Unusual behavior I noticed:

while <meta>+<f2> did call the little modal window into which commands are given, the window was unresponsive -- it flickered a few times while trying to run plasma animations (the window is placed at screen top, middle, & slides in over about 500-1.5k ms -- at this point the plasma desktop crashed, was able to relaunch itself, and prompt me with the option to submit a report.

- Custom settings of the application:

many desktop effects are enabled including window animations.  at least 10 applications have custom window appearance settings, many of which include the dropping of title bar and border in favor of a glowing bevel (and i rely on the mouse or <meta>+<f3> call to the window menu in order to resize or reposition a window set to instance itself without a border or titlebar).

The crash can be reproduced sometimes.

-- Backtrace:

plasma appeared to have resumed itself as i wrote up this crash report, but then failed again when i tried to summon the <meta>+<f2> command window again -- and again it restarted itself, offering the opportunity to submit the bug.. i declined and crashed plasma again the same way. the problem has ceased after logging out through the KDE "Leave" menu and logging back in.
Comment 2 nydel 2014-01-29 06:53:43 UTC
i can recreate this situation by kindly killing all gui processes, summoning an instance of konsole, sending konsole a few commands, then calling the gui command window with meta+f2 -- please let me know of any manner of datum that i might attach to this report as to make it more helpful (if in fact the issue appears to dance near a bug of relevance) thank you kindly

You probably also cleaned files in /var/tmp, which you are allowed to do, but not while KDE runs.
