This change has been marked as submitted.

Review request for Release Team and Telepathy.


Submitted with commit 50a901a06733299af2238fc4c4d26d2f8052dae0 by Martin Klapetek to branch Applications/15.04.

Bugs: 346395

Repository: ktp-text-ui


This fixes bug 346395 - when it is launched from Plasma, it will block all of Plasma until the app quits, which is announced by an error message box with that "KDEInit couldn't launch" error.

I'd like to commit this to stable too however this adds a new dependency on KDBusAddons. I think the severity of this issue warrants that new dependency, but can someone from the release team please ack this?

Additionally it makes it "Multiple" allowing for multiple running instances. I think it can be useful to eg. compare logs, but if anyone has a good reason for why it shouldn't be Multiple, please speak up.

Plasma is no longer blocked when the log viewer is launched from Kicker.
