Description Jüri Ivask 2016-03-08 12:43:20 CET
Description of problem: KCalc does not start in Plasma 5.5.59

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 15.12.1-1

How reproducible: every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start KCalc from Applications Menu or
2. from konsole: kcalc
3. nothing happens

There is no backtrace in konsole.
The process kcalc starts just no window is displayed.
Just needs a rebuid on basis KF5.20 & Plasma5.5.95?

Confirmed.  The process hangs (doesn't show up in top), and strace shows a lot of poll and futex activity.

Comment 3 Jüri Ivask 2016-03-15 15:06:37 CET
According KDE bug
"The real problem is that the window is not visible because of setFixedSize(minimumSize()); where minimumSize() returns (0, 0)."
