Description Elias Probst 2014-05-26 22:11:56 UTC
Assigning a window to an activity via kwin's context menu has no effect at all.

Clicking on once of the activities in the list sets the checkbox for this activity, but even "All Activities" isn't unchecked by this.
Re-opening the context menu shows the activity list in the default state again ("All Activities" checked, all others unchecked).

It's not only the menu which doesn't work, but it seems to be a general window <-> activity mapping issue, as the windows aren't hidden/shown based on the current activity.

Unfortunately kwin doesn't log anything when assigning windows to activities, so I can't provide any debug output here.

I have to admit that I haven't tried with KWin/5 yet. Ivan are there any changes needed in the activities code?
Comment 2 Elias Probst 2014-05-31 15:43:56 UTC
Added some debug statements to the code and the most useful pointer I could find so far:

client.cpp:1606 → QStringList allActivities = Activities::self()->all();
this returns only a single activity: 00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000

KWin activities usage ported to the new library paradigm

Since the KActivities library now keeps an internal cache (and is
non-blocking), there is no point in thread-based information
