Re: Dolphin dropdown menu broken on multi-monitor

Hey Martin,

Sorry for the version omissions.  I was away from my desk at the time.  It has been an on going issue throughout my use of stretch since the 5.4 days.  Currently I'm using frameworks 5.25.0, QT 5.6.1 and plasma 5.7.4 and dolphin 16.04.2.  Oddly this even happens in awesome Wm when I set the xdg_Current_desktop_theme environment variable to KDE (which fixes icon themes in kde5 apps run under alternative desktops).  Without that set though it looks ugly but the menu works.  also I didn't have this issue until I went to 4 monitors on an nvidia card.  Very strange.  I did see a bug listed that looked relevant for systemsettings5 but not for dolphin so I wasn't sure if it applies.  Maybe ill file the bug upstream and pray the fix makes it to stretch.

wondering if anyone knew of any work arounds I could try to get it fixed,
other than resorting to the places panel view.

I have seen something like this with submenus of for example the Dolphin
context menu, when I open it at the border of a screen and the sub menu wouldn
not fit anymore. This is an upstream bug which I think is fixed meanwhile – in
a newer version of I think kwin, than the one currently packaged in Debian

Aside from that you didn´t tell which version of Dolphin / Plasma / KDE
Frameworks if applicable you are using.
