Faulty text rendering on file drag - 18.04 release
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

Don't send me to ...

Curious. This never happens on Neon or any Plasma disro that I've checked. It's probably fixable somehow but it shouldn't look like that by default.

Please report a bug rather than creating a task here for every small glitch/bug. That way, should anyone else happen to be experience the same, they can find it in bug reports, confirm and give more info.

That would be the ideal thing to do, agreed. On the other hand, it would take ages and I'm highly skeptical the issue would be addressed.

I assume this bug is also present on your machine, is it not?

I'm not the easiest person to put up with, agreed.

You would be wrong. KDE bugs are actively triaged--especially bugs to plasmashell (and this is a plasmashell bug). Kubuntu mostly consumes software that KDE produces; patching at the Kubuntu (distro) level is rare and undesirable compared to getting the fix pushed out to all KDE users across all platforms. It's not feasible or desirable for Kubuntu to fix every KDE issue you find. For the most part the best we can do is cherry-pick a patch that the KDE people produce, but that patch won't ever get produced unless you report the bug to them.

I'm not the easiest person to put up with, agreed.

A wise man can admit his faults. An even wiser man learns how to change.

@rikmills @ngraham I'm quite impulsive by nature. I'm sorry I've started with the left. The bug seems to be present on most (if not all) machines and it has not yet been fixed. Seems to affect Kubuntu exclusively. (I can see it even in Tunnell's promo video). Where exactly should I report it to? To https://bugs.kde.org/ or Launchpad?

Too late, somebody else already filed it: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=395618

Okay then. Hopefully, it'll be fixed. Thank you, Nathan.

There. I've joined the crowd :)

Okay, seems this is the only way to get rid of the glitch.

Just choose "None". But you already know that, don't you?

Reboot might be required to take effect.

T7618 Probably the root of the issue.

@rikmills It's been done. Something must have gone wrong when upstream settings have been changed in Kubuntu. What do you think?
