Description Nicolas F. 2024-03-07 23:32:56 UTC

In the Processes view, when a process has a very long name, such as systemd-ask-password-agent in tree view, the "Name" column cannot be expanded, and there is no hover tooltip on the "Name" column to display the full ellipsised name.

1. Spawn a process with a long name
2. Try to find out what it's name is through plasma-systemmonitor


Process name is cut off with ellipsis, to prevent my very small and smooth brain from receiving too much information. Expanding the name column doesn't work because it has a maximum width for some reason, presumably to stop my very small and smooth brain from making it too wide and then getting confused and crying. There is no hover tooltip showing the full name when hovering over the cut off name.


Either let me make the column wider or add a tooltip.

Haha I'm sure your brain is more wrinkled than you think! I don't see a maximum width though; is it possible you're accidentally dragging it down when you resize, and not just horizontally?

That said, a tooltip for elided text would be good here, yeah.

Add more cell tooltips when the label is truncated

Now there's tooltips on the first cell delegate, which is used for
the application name.
