Known Issues / Errata

MeeGo System

  • Updating from Plasma Active 1.0 to Plasma Active 2.0 is NOT supported due to changes in configuration files.
  • Booting up for the first time takes some time. Before the startup of Plasma Active, you will see a black screen with a cursor. Please wait until Plasma Active is completely loaded.
  • Creating a second or third extra activity makes plasma-device crash (bug #288972)
  • Tapping on the shutdown button may not work on first boot (verified on a Wetab 3G model). If that's the case, please reboot the system by following these steps: open Konsole and run reboot as root. This may halt your device, so you have to press the power button for 10 seconds in order to turn it off and a second time to turn it on (a complete reboot). (bug #228005)
  • The network applet doesn't show network information. (bug #288979)
  • Bookmarks' icons on bookmarks boxes may change to text file icons.
  • Tapping on bookmarks shown on the recommendations overlay adds them to a document box instead of bookmarks one. Tapping on those that have been added works as expected (opens active-webbrowser).
  • The back button of the Active Image Viewer doesn't always take you to image grid, but to another image. Workaround: Tap on it another time.
  • My First Activity's thumbnail on the activity switcher doesn't match the actual wallpaper used on such pre-filled activity.
  • The virtual keyboard is not hidden after tapping on an area outside the overlay. (bug #288828.)
  • Pre-filled recommendation of usage manual brings you to a non-existent URL.
  • Cannot go back if you tap on a link in the About app. Workaround: you have to close it (bug #288082.)

MeeGo Multimedia

  • Audio is muted by default. Tap on the speaker icon—on the left side of the top bar—to adjust volume.
  • Missing support for AVI, MPEG, DIVX, MOV and MP3. Bangarang will crash by trying to play those formats.
