Description Forrest Pangborn 2004-07-23 11:59:25 UTC
Occasionally, Beep-Media-Player simply disappears from the KDE taskbar.  Once this occurs, its not possible to minimize the application by clicking on the minimize button in the application window.  I'm using Beep and KDE 3.2.3.

Reproducible: Sometimes
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start up Beep in KDE 3.2.3
2. Allow program to run, while playing music.
3. Occasionally, Beep's taskbar entry will disappear.

Actual Results:  
Beep's taskbar entry sometimes disappears and then the application will no
longer minimize.

Expected Results:  
Remained in the taskbar and minimize functionality continued to work.

I'll try to find out if something specific is causing this to occur (ie. a certain type of mp3 such as VBR, joint stereo, mono, etc.  If I find anything more, I'll explain here.

It probably isn't related to the media that is playing...

I'm curious... what was your last-good state?  Was it updating kde that broke beep, or did upgrading beep cause this?  If you just started using beep, can you try an older version and possibly a different WM?
Comment 3 Forrest Pangborn 2004-07-23 23:57:53 UTC
I wouldn't have thought the type of media had anything to do w/ this issue, except for the existence of a bug I reported earlier in which VBR mp3's cause beep's entry in the KDE taskbar to flicker.

Its likely that the type of media isn't related, but I just thought its a possibility.

I believe I was running kde 3.2.3 (out of unstable then) prior to installing Beep, but I am not sure... is there a log file I can check to see when I merged each of them respectively?

/var/log/emerge.log should contain the complete history of your emerges
