Description Christian Muehlhaeuser 2018-10-12 09:23:18 UTC
While copying/moving files, the progress circle in the system tray is slightly misleading:

During the transfer, the circle gets a visual filling, not unlike a regular progress bar does. However, it's not actually starting to fill up visually, until about 15% of the transfer has already been finished. Similarly, it looks to be completely full when the transfer has only reached about 85%.

I wish we could get the pie-style filling back we had in Plasma 4.

> I wish we could get the pie-style filling back we had in Plasma 4.

I was about to report this issue myself. Filling should be angular (clockwise) rather than longitudinal (left to right, which does not work at all for circles). I guess this is what you meant about pie-style, isn't it?

Is this difficult to implement because of a technical issue of some sort?

Alternatively for a change, why not to make the notification a square instead of a circle?
