Review request for KDE Software on Mac OS X, KDE Frameworks and Qt KDE.

Repository: kdelibs4support


KF5 applications have long had a habit of drawing icons on buttons even when this feature was turned off in the user's setting. This was mostly noticeable in applications built on kdelibs4support.

It seems that the actual culprit is in Qt's QPushButton implementation (, but it is possible to work around it in `KPushButton::paintEvent`, by removing the icon (forcing it to the null icon) in the option instance, before handing off control to the painter.


  src/kdeui/kpushbutton.cpp 98534fa 



On Kubuntu 14.04 and OS X 10.9.5 with Qt 5.5.1 and KF5 frameworks 5.16.0 .

I have not yet verified if there are other classes where this modification would be relevant too.
