Fix coverswitch broken reflection on multi-monitor setup

Authored by poboiko on Feb 12 2018, 4:06 PM.



This patch fixes bug 378688.

The code which was used to draw reflections before overrode ModelViewMatrix (which was aware of multi-screen setup) by reflection matrix.
Now it just multiplies old value by reflection matrix instead.

Since setProjectionMatrix is not needed when painting the window itself, I assumed it shouldn't be there to paint the reflection as well. Apparently, it was redundant.

Test Plan
  • Have single monitor, pressed alt+tab several times. Reflections are OK.
  • Attached another monitor, switched focus to it. Pressed Alt+Tab several times again. Still OK.
  • Switched focus back to prime monitor, alt+tab still works fine
  • Disconnected monitor, tested again - still works

What about the Plasma/5.8 and Plasma/5.12 branches?

What about the Plasma/5.8 and Plasma/5.12 branches?

I don't have experience in backporting these kind of patches (and don't know how to decide whether some fix needs backporting or not).
Can someone give me a hand with this? Should I just duplicate this commit to corresponding (5.8, 5.12) git branches?

In general, all fixes which apply to maintained branches and have a low potential of causing regressions should be backported.

For this, just cherry-pick the commit into the Plasma/5.8 branch, merge Plasma/5.8 into Plasma/5.12 and then Plasma/5.12 into master and push all of them.

I'm against pushing to 5.8 - this is not a security issue.

Tomorrow is release of 5.12.4, so I cherry-picked the commit into the Plasma/5.12 branch and merged.
