Description Ilya Bizyaev 2021-08-01 13:32:11 UTC
A recent bug affects how task manager's "Show in all activities" works. Instead of actually displaying the window in all activities, it only displays the task manager item. Clicking this item in a different activity switches the user to the activity where the window was originally located. To achieve the normal behavior, a user needs to manually tick all activities instead.

1. Open an app, e.g. KInfoCenter
2. Use task manager's context menu on the task item to "Show in all activities"

Only the task manager item is shown in all activities, and clicking it returns you back to the original activity.

Same behavior as in previous Plasma version or when selecting all activities by hand: the window is visible in all activities without switching.

I have a note saying that this started in Plasma 5.22.

Can confirm.

I have this issue in Kubuntu 21.10 and Plasma 5.23 (using backports). Using the system title bar context menu to set "All Activities" does work properly, and accurately displays the state of the window. (e.g. only one activity is still ticked after using the task manager context menu to set "All Activities")

x11client: Replace activityList with m_activityList

KWin does not update activity status when setting `_KDE_NET_WM_ACTIVITIES`
to nullUuid outside of KWin, which causes "All Activities" not working
as expected for KWindowSystem.

`X11Client::activityList` is not kept in sync with
`AbstractClient::m_activityList`. Move `m_activityList` from private to
protected, and use it in `X11Client::readActivities`
