#2125 closed bug (duplicate)

DeskBar crash when drag and dropping preference folders back

Reported by: emitrax Owned by: anevilyak
Priority: normal Milestone: R1
Component: Applications/Deskbar Version: R1/pre-alpha1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Platform: All


  • Click on the leaf menu
  • Select Preference
  • In the tracker window, drag and drop the little icon on the top right onto the desktop

The Prefernce folder gets moved to the desktop, which shouldn't happen IMHO.

  • Try to drag and drop the preference folder back to the leaf submenu where it was.

Result: Deskbar crash. The stack trace says it crashed on the operator= method.

While trying to reproduce the bug I managed to create a loop in the directory as shown in the screenshot. Anyway, this is an unrelated (IMHO) issue. I can't manage to remove the screenshot. Sorry about that.

Comparing the stack crawls this is a duplicate of #478. As to moving the folder to the Desktop. This is perfectly expected behaviour. The folders in the Deskbar are not in any way special. They are just folders that happen to be located under "/boot/home/config/be". So when you do initiate a move of the folder by dragging the folders icon then this is what should happen. I suppose the loop is caused by having a link to the preference folder inside the preference folder? The same applies here, as those are just folders/files, they will behave the same as the context menu navigation in Tracker would in this case.
