Bug ID: 368964
Summary: Desktop icon executed when clicked somewhere else
A strange bug.
It seems like the mouse focus is lost and a click anywhere on the desktop
executes/opens the currently marked icon.
The issue might be not in the Folderview plugin itself but can be a side effect
of the corner/edge actions you can set for your workspace. I have set the upper
right corner to show all my workspaces in an overview. And I only had this bug
with this enabled and used.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Mark an icon in folderview containment .
2. Have upper right corner set to workspace chooser then go to upper right
corner to have the overview of different workspaces shown
3. Click on the same you are comming from and then try clicking on the
background not an icon
It executes the last marked icon
It should just remove the marking of the icon
I suspect a mouse focus issue that might be something to be addressed maybe in
kwin or somewhere else aswell.
Also notice only tested on X11 not Wayland.
Also I think it might only happen if you are really fast clicking (so basically
from the workspace overview perform something like a double click or tripple
And I noticed that this sometimes marks the home icon and executes it.
The problem is that its not easy to reproduce everytime.
So I made a little video demonstrating the issue. https://youtu.be/Z3cW5DhRrYg
I hope I am not the only one experiencing it.
