Notification badge for zero notifications

I think the notification badge on the app icon showing a zero when there aren't any notifications is pretty pointless, it shouldn't be there at all.

When seeing this badge, one automatically assumes there are notifications, until realizing there's a zero inside of it, which creates unnecessary stress.

Which kmail version do you use as we don't show "0" when there is not email unread
Comment 2 Jan Przybylak 2019-05-23 19:22:07 UTC
I use 5.11.1.
This doesn't always happen, just sometimes. I have not been able to figure out what is causing it exactly, but I'm only using Kmail and Akregator, so it has to be one of them.

Did you use plasma kde ?
Comment 4 Jan Przybylak 2019-05-24 06:24:32 UTC
Yes
Comment 5 Laurent Montel 2019-05-24 10:30:46 UTC
It's not a kmail/akregator bug if it's a bug as we hide indicator when count <=0
{QStringLiteral("count-visible"), unreadEmail > 0},

=> perhaps it's a bug in plasma but it's not in kmail.
You need to find testcase for debugging it.
