Follow-up Comment #98, bug #53276 (project octave):

@Torsten: Yes, there is a very extensive patch here.  I'm attaching an updated
version in which I've outright removed the tooltip "Use <Alt> + <Left Mouse
Button> for moving the window".

@Philip: Thanks for the clarification on KDE Oxygen.

I think that KDE Qt and the window decorations stuff is all outside of our
control.  Therefore, I propose dropping that tooltip about how to move a
window for a broken decorations window.  The current patch as best I know is
adhering to documented Qt standards and therefore should work.  Works great on
Mint/Cinnamon.  Appears to work for Philip for non-Oxygen Mageai KDE.  Seems
to work well for Mint KDE.  So I'd propose applying the patch in the default
branch and try to get some testers for MXE/Windows and Mac OSX.

I've tested the Oxygen window theme on Magiea.  The decorations work fine
here.  But what gives me pause is I had to select Oxygen theme in two places:
one the look-and-feel and another the decorations.  That's right, KDE appears
to have settings for decorations as a separate entity.  That makes me wonder a
bit about the likelihood of a bug slipping into KDEs decorations code.  Why
not just make it all one thing?  In fact, there is even a third category of
mouse cursor theme, which can be Oxygen.

To boot, Mageai has several other issues in KDE.  I'm also attaching a
screenshot with some annotations pointing out the font is incorrect in some
windows, there is this odd extra tab space placed in the line of text I'm
typing, and the desktop taskbar is missing icons and text.  The missing text
came when I switched to Oxygen theme.
