is there a good plugin for enabling autosaving after say a few minutes in Kate?
i updated to kde4.5 from the kubuntu experimental ppa
however, i don't get the blur effect working, although its enabled
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile
GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 0c)
is there some place to look for errors/warnings?
someone knows if there iss a lastpass plugin for konqueror or rekonq?
no idea what lastpass is, but if there's an extension for chrome it should come to rekonq soon :-)
cb400f: yes lastpass has a chrome extension
cb400f: rekonq supports chrome extensions?
cb400f: it says "kwin(1456) KWin::EffectsHandlerImpl::loadEffect: Trying to load "kwin4_effect_blur"
cb400f: great news maybe this makes me switch :)
cb400f: kwin(1456): Invalid framebuffer status: 0
cb400f: the "invalid framebuffer" message only shows up right after the blur effect
cb400f: all the others don't have that message
cb400f: but i don't really know what it means
Hi. How can we tell krunner to launch new processes with a current directory different from XDG_DOCUMENTS_DIR
why does running webradio make kwin use 100% cpu?
using FF which uses mplayer
because the site fails on konq
I cant get preview for images, video etc in Dolhin. http://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=66&t=88194 can anybody help?
hello, is it possible to make KDE check word spelling in two languages?
english and russian in my case
hi, I've installed awn on my kubuntu, after rebooting it will come up with gnome desktop, how can I bring back KDE?
Mehrab_: ask on #kubuntu
Torch: did that before, but isn't this question kind of related to KDE too? if not what kind of question should be asked here?
Mehrab_: your question is about how to reconfigure kubuntu to start KDE instead of Gnome. This question is specific to your distro, not to KDE
(most probably by choosing kde at the login manager screen)
The problem will likely be that GDM is now the login manager instead of KDM
not that gdm doesn't have a "session" chooser, does it?
pinotree: he turned on automatic login ;-)
thats right, auto login is on
i've troubles with phonon on kde 4.4.3
each time i boot i get: the device intel audio bla bla is not working
which phonon backend are you using?
xine or gstreamer.. try if using the other one helps
tried with booth xine and gstreamer
the only strange thing is that phonon is at version 4.4.1 and kde to 4.4.3
but there isn't a newer version available
phonon has its own version number
.. it's just confusing people cuz it's so close to the kde number :-)
the pc is an acer aspire one, a netbook
and now the preferred backend is xine..
ask your distro.. maybe related to PulseAudio or something
does the sound actually work?
and do non-phonon apps have sound?
so the prob isn't limited to phonon
there is no pulse audio
but if i reinstall the audio card trought the hardware manager
how do you make konsole translucent?
under profile configuration.. requires compositing
there is no pulse audio running,,
however i am using opensuse..
did the sound work before you upgraded to unofficial packages?
and did it perhaps work earlier even in 4.4.3?
i didn't tried..
it says compositing is disabled
but i got no message like "the device is not working,,etc"
oh, now it may be enabled
dchmelik: you can enable compositing if your graphics hardware supports it
it will not resume compositing
dchmelik: is it a laptop running on battery power?
no, it is a minicomputer
it only has a Matrox g450
but transluceny worked in KDE3
dchmelik, it was fake transparency, it only showed background, but no windows behind it
that is what I would prefer... I think I got it working now
the transparency will show when it is at 100% in konsole, right?
or is it the other way around? because XRender says it is working but there is no translucency
where do I find konsole--super user mode (and same for the file manager?)
find? in the menu? .. there's no super user file manager in vanilla kde anymore
of course you can do 'kdesu dolphin' or so if you want
apparently I cannot edit it into the menu either... this is really stone age
dchmelik: why can't you?
when you try to select an area of the menu to add something (or also resize it,) that is just how it is
dchmelik: i have no idea what you mean, but you can edit the menu with the kmenueditor. right click on the kickoff button and select "menu editor"
thanks, I see what you said... the other thing is someone said you can resize the menu, but I never found out how
(to get rid of the scroll bars)
[13:24] <ayevee> hello, is it possible to make KDE check word spelling in two languages?
[13:24] <ayevee> english and russian in my case
dchmelik: it has a size grip in one corner
thanks for explaining that
printer applet is the most annoying thing ever
it keeps poping up and dissapearing like crazy
What defines whether this or that icon id displayed by default in the "Desktop Folder" directory panel that pops up when starting KDE4? I see a Firefox icon there, I didn't put it there.
where is defined the default location to the save file dialog?
S_sun: normally that would be a .desktop file in the folder which folder view is configured to show - normally ~/Desktop
hey nepomuk developers,
fu*k you for bringing this bullsh*t "Social Semantic Desktop" crap to my system! Now it's bloated as Vista
xelister: just turn it off like i did
what the hells is Social Semantic Desktop anyway?
did this guys smoked weed with some stuff from Apple?
xelister, can you control yourself? You are not in home
xelister: this is no appropriate behaviour, no matter how angry you might be about it
ok sorry, stil lI think I am a little entitled to speak for all the user's computers that slow down to crawl, or just failed (various bugs) thanks to this idea. We dont want MS style bloatware on our nice linuxes (most of us)
sure I disabled it. Now I have to do it for all friends. And still many newbies will not do it, and it will be an opinion that linux "is slow" now.
xelister, since it's linux, you have the option of selecting what you install - or remove - unlike the other OS
when I save a file in any KDE application, the file dialog is located in a folder out of my home, it'd be desirable for me that folder would be my home, where can I change it?
alisonken1home: sure, fortunatelly it was easy to fix this
xelister: the first step would be, explain your problem in detail, apart from "bloatware". then give steps to reproduce your problem. Because from experience, not all users have that problem. That way you can be helped in a friendly and nice manner
neverendingo: nepomuku is a file that uses tons of resources to scan all my desktop
xelister: are you really sure it is nepomuk or maybe even strigi?
that and virtuosomething, another unwanted thing
xelister: i am not the best to help you with that, but what i know is, the people around here or on other support channels are really nice and helpful if they are asked like that
xelister: "unfortunately" it works for me like a charm, even with strigi enabled in systemsettings
xelister: oh, and always state a bit more information, like the versions you are using, there are huge changes between those
I spent long hours to get apps working after this akonadi/seppuku/virtuosomething stuff added, and also today, computer slowing down to crawl thanks to seppuku+vrituososomething. Now it's disabled. For me. Think of the other users. Also look how many bugs there are already. I'm against such bloatware culture being by default enabled in linuxes.
bloatware, because: It's unwanted (I never said I want this ***, it just comes as part of ubuntu 10.04), it's slow, it's buggy. Yuck. Feels like Vista
xelister: as said, my setup is working fine, with defaults enabled. causes might be different things. distro, hardware, configuration...
perhaps ubuntu distro is more to blame here, not sure.
xelister: can you please stop using insults and mean language here?
Ubuntu really tried to be the next Vista. Also with 3d desktop, that has some gimmicks, but is far less usable and also slower (even on powerfull computer with good gfx)
("fu*k you" etc go too far, and he's been warned before)
the ban doesn't look to the correct person though?
pinotree: whoops, looks like my cursor slipped indeed
suspend to ram via powerdevil seems broken in 4.4.3, any hint?
I have a gigantic X process. Always top entry in 'top'. Usinng sabayon 5.2 KDE. tried to pinpoint it to an app, but right now I think is generalized. Any idea what to try next?
can anybody tell me how to install KDE in Ubuntu 10.04
Mutant: 'apt-get install kubuntu-desktop' afaik.. but better asks the kubuntuists to be sure
can i install kde on OS X ?
not only packages, amarok etc but whol kde with workspace and other
i'm having the problem with opensuse 11.2, that under KDE3 the application menu is completely empty (except the session switch stuff and the like)... how can i restore it (maybe by importing the kde4 menu?)???
well, btw, the control center submenu is also empty... that kind of sucks... what could have gone wrong?
jagged: have u try on another acc ?
there is only one account, uspenok :-) fresh installation...
where is the menu structure stored anyway?
jagged: try running kbuildsycoca
that should regenerate the menu in kde 3
someone knows what is required for an ad hoc network? avahi? zeroconf?
good morning...the "restart" icon disappeared from the KDE "Leave" menu...how do i add it back?
well.... i have read that name before, no idea what it means, but can't be all that bad... but again: where are the menu entries stored???
oh, run it as root or normal user?
jagged: "kbuildsycoca --noincremental", just as you :)
since several weeks each time I launch KMail for the first time, the akonadi window which tell me there is an error appears and once I close it, kmail is closed too
if I restart kmail again, it works
I'm using KDE 4.4.2 and the akonadi error is not important
titou: i have that too. what system are you running?
ok, run something completely different
the error is annoying, and absolutely useless for normal people
and full of lies too, i think they make assumptions
in particular the "error" is that there were a previous mysql log which contains some errors
akonadi is alpha state
never suspend your system, unless you remember to restart akonadi and kontact when you wake it up, or you are in for data loss an grief, with out warnings
something is also leaving stale lock files for your addressbooks, maybe kmail, which is using kabc.
i don't think developers use suspend :p
I'm afraid about the KDE 4.5 since KMail will fully use Akonadi !
i'm off... thanks for your help...
so there is no solution to avoid that?
Does kate do any kind of autosaving?
I just found out it crashes if you try to cut a collapsed segment of text and I've lost my work
Lantizia: should be in ~
Lantizia: should be in filename~
and what if it was never saved?
you know what, forget it - I've had enough of KDE. I can't think of one single application that came with Kubuntu 10.04 that hasn't crashed so far
Lantizia: then maybe there is a problem with your distribution
Oh I don't doubt it, it's ubuntu lol
I use KDE all the time and hopefully my applications don't crash
Nothing can ever be really ready by a definition of... Oh look it's April/October
Lantizia: if you use stable versions of kde should be no problems... at least I have not seen any on opensuse
Lantizia: if you use beta versions you take the risks
trying to get conky to go entirely transparent on kde 4.4.3
