VirtualBox forgets status bar and toolbar
Last modified: 2018-07-02 12:49:44 UTC
After the latest Tumbleweed update/upgrade, the VirtualBox GUI forgets that I activated the status bar:
The GUI now starts without the bars. I can still activate the bars via a right-click. If I now restart the GUI, it shows up again without the toolbar and the status bar.
I've tried to change the corresponding settings in the file ".VirtualBox/VirtualBox.xml". This works, but as soon as I quit the GUI, it resets my settings in the VirtualBox.xml.
So now I have to activate the toolbar and the status bar after each start of the VirtualBox GUI.

I'm now on Tumbleweed 20180626 with VirtualBox 5.2.12_SUSE r122571.
I'm now on Tumbleweed 20180626. The bug is still there.

Sorry, 20180627 of course. :)
I saw this problem a couple of times, but it was transient as a reboot brought back the desktop that I expected. It has been at least two weeks since it happened to me.
Some critical information is missing:
1. What is the host OS and VB version?
2. What desktop is the guest running?

I gave both information above: openSUSE Tumbleweed 20180627, VirtualBox 5.2.12_SUSE r122571.
Please note that only the GUI is affected, not the window(s) with the guest OS. So ...

... I'm not running any guest. The program "VirtualBox" has the bug.
I completely misinterpreted what you meant by "Status bar"? Perhaps, you had better post a screen shot showing exactly what you mean.
It's caused by a regression in Qt 5.11.1, this should fix it:
Btw, it only happens if you close the window via the close button.
Choose "Quit" from the menu to avoid the problem...

Yes, it's the regression mentioned by Wolfgang Bauer, thanks for the hint! [Ctrl+q] seems to work too.
(I thought the description was clear enough, especially with the reference to the configuration file ;-) )
This bug was a problem with Qt 5.11.1, which is not=w fixed.
