Qbittorrent odd window/taskbar behaviour


When the window is minimized or in a background window, clicking on the taskbar doesn't bring it back correctly. It puts the title bar and the border up, but not the rest, I still see my desktop or prevoius foreground app and can't do anything. The only way to bring it back correctly is to click on the system tray icon.

I assume this is some unfriednly interraction between qbittorrent and moksha. I tried Transmission from the bodhi appcenter but I didn't like it, I prefer the traditional look & feel of qbittorrent and will continue to use it even with this problem, just wonder if there's a fix and if its the same problem for everyone...

Hard to say why it behaves this way. I use Transmission with no troubles. If you want something more eye friendly, try deluge.

Another user reported similar issue with skype when set to start minimized. He described a related problem I also have; at startup, the program opens with the title bar and a ghost image.

So perhaps I think it's a bug? Anyone have an app that starts minimized successfully, and allows you to minimize/maximize from tasker?

I don't know the answer to your trouble but again, have you tried deluge?

I have not. Are you saying it starts minimized without these issues?
Regardless, I'm perfectly happy with QB and will use it dispite this minor inconvenience as I stated in first post. That's not the issue. It's the way it doesn't start or maximize/minimize right in Bodhi, and now that I know Skype is similar, I feel like it's a bodhi/moskha bug. But that's why I asked if anyone has an app that does in fact start minimized successfully - obviously it'll be easier to complain to you guys if EVERY app does this, and easier to fix.

Ok you are certainly jumping to conclusions here, qBittorrent has 2419 issues reported including two on this very same issue. Many of the issues reported are it not working right on non-KDE desktops. I have been looking into this issue but as of yet found no fix or cause, not super familiar with qt programming tho. It works better if ya install the latest version and not the one in Ubuntus repo. Regardless even the version in git has the aforementioned bug. And for the record the app is really broken using e22 and starting in the systray. Unusable even.

Given that fact and the fact that many apps work well starting in our systray, last night I thought of many tho I know do, without further evidence it is a moksha bug I am tentatively assuming it is broken application. I may or may nor pursue this any further.

^ that said there's plenty of choices on Linux for a bittorrent application...
Code:
apt search bittorrent client

Fair enough.
