Yesterday I encountered a strange bug: The app covers suddenly stopped moving and were visible on the lock screen as well as the app grid (see screenshots), no interaction with them was possible. A reboot fixed this, and I couldn't reproduce it.

This is not a proper answer, but I have managed to reproduce it so hopefully it may be possible to avoid this situation :)

To reproduce:

  1. In the multitasking view, longpress to show the close buttons of the active applications
  2. While the multitasking view is still in "close mode", open the event view with a swipe from the bottom
  3. Dismiss the event view


EDIT: Ok, I've managed to fix it. This is obviosuly unsupported by Jolla and may eat your favourite pet. But it works here. YMMV.

  1. Open /usr/share/lipstick-jolla-home-qt5/main.qml with your favourite text editor
  2. Line 88, inside the Connections object:

    onEventsPeekChanged: if (Lipstick.compositor.eventsPeek) desktop.closeApplicationEnabled = false

    Change to:

    onEventPeekChanged: if (Lipstick.compositor.eventPeek) desktop.closeApplicationEnabled = false
  3. Restart lipstick and enjoy

  4. (Probably the same should be done in the onCloseApplicationEnabledChanged callback, but anyway this change fixed the bug for me, so... :) )

If there's enough interest I could create a patch incorporating this change.

...confirme on 1.1.6/Aaslakkajärvi.

Also confirmed for (Äijänpäivänjärvi), so it's not a new issue (although it should of course be fixed, which might already be the case for SFOS 2.0 because of "new" lipstick I guess)

Confirm as well (1.1.6 Aaslakkajärvi). Only happens when I swipe away "event view" from right or left.

Yes, now I can reproduce it, too.
