hello, a quick question: using the "desktop" to view a folder, it's not allowing me to use the scroll to cycle through all my desktops, is this a bug?
teraquendya
hey, i got a quick question. i have a similar problem to bug 235155, which is closed and in need of a backtrace. I think I can provide a backtrace (recompiling right now) but i dont think I can reopen the bug, since it is not mine. Should I just add my stuff to the bug and hope someone else reopens it or should I open a new bug? Or is there a wayfor me to reopen the bug?

anyone know how to enable touchpad mousetap in KDE? i cant find it in the menus =\
pinotree
install the kde touchpad utility, also called synaptiks
Machtin
hm.. it seems dolphin is ignoring my "don't create preview for files above 5MB setting."
spm_Draget
there is a minor bug, but I do not have a bugzilla account to report it: when unlocking the screen via remote (like vnc or ssh wih 'qbusorg.kde.screenlocker/MainApplication qut' or killing he klocker application, the timer is not reset. i.e KDE locks the screen 1-2 seconds later again, eventho one is working over vnc. Plus KDE oes not lock the screen if the mini-volume slider of kmix is open. KDE 4.4.4
thiago_home
the first problem sounds like vnc isn't resetting the X idle timer
not a KDE issue
the second problem sounds like X mouse-grabbing
it should happen whenever any popups are open (this includes menus)
spm_Draget
True about the menus. But back in KDE3 times I remember that I could kill klocker and this would unlock kde. Maybe I remember wrong.
thiago_home
what happens if you kill the locker now?
leontopod
hey, I have my taskbar on autohide
but it pops up for a fraction of a second every once in a while even if I don't put the mouse over it
hey, I have my taskbar on autohide
what's up with that?
oops
hello?
wow quiet here
Kano

easy way to convert?

Nauxer
video files thumbnails are avoiding me, whats the way to have them back? install some package?

what package is needed for flash in konqueror
SpeedEvil
hello! Anyone know if it's possible to use compositing in any way to show a small window on the desktop as normal? I'd like to have a 1/4 size FF window - for example - to show a flash stream.
sequemis
can anyone tell me why the pager in kde since 4.0 is completely useless?
it just doesn't hit my tiocker.
Sho_
sequemis: in what way is it useless?
sequemis
it's useless as compared with 3.5 in the sense that i can't quite find the strength to use it at all in most idle circumstances.
it's like plasma spurred a hip-hop movement when they released 4.0. no rhyme.
all the sudden there's no rap to coincide with a hippy movement over free love / marriage or something along those lines.
if i was criminally negligent, i could not find a way for pager usage to also be criminally negligent on someone's time at the same time telling myself i'm actually capable of using pager plasmoid. "ok self..." "umm..."
cleary_
it's like, you're all rhyme, and no reason
Jucato
you still haven't given a concrete reason
sequemis
ok self...
Jucato
4.0 is also outdated and admittedly rough around the edges. you should be using the latest stable release
sequemis
all things considered, plasma is probably patentable by the same case, criminal negligence. IANAL.
4.4.4.
anyway, i just set the pager applet up on a top panel with no impetus to use it. I guess I'm just a loner.
Jucato
you are not making any sense
sequemis
mmmm.
if it's criminally negligent for the military to pick up the phone on someone who hasn't completely finished dialling yet, how can i blame someone else for having to have 4 screens open? cool-factor is nil for a feature pretty much standard as a differential feature between windows and unix variants.
as in, there was a call recipient, not just a caller.
aaron's paycheck can probably make me dial the phone ;)
personally: i can probably profit in business by just picking up the phone, {not actually by waiting for anyone to dial the phone} -scratch-. At all.
nvm, i should would in a call centre or some phishing scam centre or 419 or something.
*work.
Sho_
sequemis: props for creativity, really
sequemis
krunner is still plasma by development, isn't it?
a switcher beside the close button or the system activity button might be a long shot at how else to, and then i might be able to use plasma to switch desktops :)
i'm getting that same error.
i have found where it is possible to "make --skip-validation" but make says illegal option
sequemis
proposition for krunner: kpager functionality after tab key from text input box, with kpager widget located after close box. it probably breaks hig, though i'm looking at svn to see if i can do anything at all.
xguru
any ideas....am i in the right place even :)
oh freebsd 8 and upgrading from 4.3 to 4.4.4
http://www.pastie.org/1018197 <--- line 20 suggest a work around, but when the command is issued it says "make: illegal option -- -" Sorry i thought i would set the question up better and give better info
crocket
hi
The top panel is always clicked even if other programs are in fullscreen mode.
The top panel is not visible but is clicked.
What the hell?
Nobody?
leontopod
is this a stupid question: why doesn't kde have a "show desktop" button or menu option?
siddvicious
you mean on the panel ? :)
leontopod
yes
oh just googled it
apparently there is a widget that will do it
thiago_home
leontopod: so KDE has it :-)
leontopod
ok
so I have the show desktop
widget on the desktop
how do I get it on the taskbar?
thiago_home
drag it there
leontopod
ok, /me tries
it won't let me =(
it just drags it BEHIND the taskbar
thiago_home
put the panel in edit mode first
it's probably easier to drag it from the "add widget" dialog/pane
leontopod
oh did that
it worked
siddvicious
if you want to add on panel at bottom then right click to add wigets and add it :)
leontopod
but it put the widget icon over on the extreme right of the taskbar
but it works
that's what counts
widgets are pretty bad ass
=)
thiago_home
well, move it :-)
again, in edit mode
leontopod
thanks

I get a few transparent pixels between the kwin title bar and the rest of the application window. Anyone else having this issue? http://imagepaste.nullnetwork.net/viewimage.php?id=1080

hey, I run a pretty theme on my kde, but it makes my gtk apps look absolutely horrible. Any way to fix this?

Hi
I'm a french user, sorry if i don't speak very clearly
I have a computer with ubuntu server 10.04, i installed X server and then, i installed kdm
but i don't want x and kdm to start when the system boots, i want to stay in console mode
pinotree
Sylvain3665: ’ #ubuntu

Sylvain3665: You want to adjust your default runlevel from 5 to 3 in /etc/inittab

ok i'll ask there...

Is kde 4.4.90 release delayed ?
gabriel9
anyone use bespin?
TheOV
what is the best kde4 distro?
sopho
this is a powerful question
kdepepo
best? I'd say newest. Updating to Mesa 7.8.1 did wonders to my KWin speed.
Zaister
can anyone help? it seem I no longer have access to my cd drive from KDE apps, neither audio cds nor data cds will work
gabriel9
sopho: Arch is powerful if you make it like that
sopho
i am not into that too much, yet "best" is imho a category that has many dimensions, that was my point here :)
tuxick
kwin using 100% cpu again
how to see what process/app does that?
xguru
i was isntall kde from ports, and there was an option to put the printer icon in the task bar.....i want to remove that. anyone know what package that was in? or do i have to recompile all of kde

hi, how can i change the order in the kopete contacts list? i want groups before contacts..
pedroc
hi, avahi works, but zeroconf kio in konqueror not
any ideas what i can do?
pfee
Hi, I get a row of transparent pixels between the window title bar and the rest of the application window (KDE 4.4.4, F13), anyone else see this? Perhaps a kwin or oxygen issue.
rdieter
pfee: I don't see that, mind posting a screenshot?
pfee
http://imagepaste.nullnetwork.net/viewimage.php?id=1080
Image shows "System settings" window, with konsole behind showing through.
d3x
pfee, nice effect ;]
pfee
d3x: But I'm losing a few all important virtual pixels!
d3x: vertical
I have "focus follows mouse". If I move a window, it looks fine. Then when I move focus to another window, the previous window gets the transparent strip.
And, strangely, Konqueror and Konversation windows suffer the problem. Konsole appears to be ok. Strange that not all windows have the same treatment. btw, Intel graphics card.
If it's not already a known issue, I'll post to bugs.kde.org.
haldir
if I use kde system settings to alter my display settings, how do I save that to the next session. right now I have to do this each time.
I use slackware 13.1 and kde 4.4.3
pfee
rdieter
haldir: it's a feature/bug (ie, those settings are not persistent)
haldir: see http://bugs.kde.org/183143
haldir
rdieter:thanks for your help

hi
i just installed kde 4.4.4 after using 4.3.5. one question: what happened to the image gallery plasmoid
pingveno
Is there a way to block people in Kopete?
szal
depends on the protocol, that's a function of the respective messenger protocol, not of the client
pingveno
Ah
Any particular reason?
sorind
i saw on the release schedule that RC1 should have been released a few days ago, has it been pushed back?
Kame2
sorind: it's there since some hours ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/unstable/4.4.90/src
Klanticus
may someone on trunk test if bug 242785 is reproducible?
pinotree
Kame2: until it's announced, it can change anytime
Kame2
pinotree: why is it on a public ftp then?

nobody knows?
Nobu
Hi, is there a way to disable autoscroll (shift+‘, etc.) in Kontact (mail), or globally? When I'm reading, I usually scroll with the mouse, which switches focus to the message. So when I try to select multiple messages, it triggers autoscroll.
KenBW2
is there a command-line way to set a load of settings in a script? kinda like the gconftool command?
Nobu
There should be a list of all (KDE global) settings, where to find them, and a link to their description, somewhere in KDE Help Center. o.o
tzanger
has anyone else got issues with kopete and gtalk today?
KenBW2
tzanger: works fine here Kubuntu 9.10 kopete 1.0
tzanger
hmm okay, I'm on 10.04
worked great yesterday, not so much today
KenBW2
tzanger: sorry, im on 10.04 too
tzanger
KenBW2: hmm, okay, thank you, now I know it's me at least :-)
KenBW2
Nobu: i can't see anything in help center resembling anything gconf-like
Nobu
KenBW2: No, I was saying it should have that, not that it did. Sorry for the confusion.
KenBW2
Nobu: maybe theres another way of addressing the problem
Nobu: basically I want to make a script to set up a fresh install with my preferred settings. In Gnome i used gconftool, but I don't know of any alternative in KDE
Kame2
Nobu: i don't know what gconftool does, but is kreadconfig and kwriteconfig what you are looking for?
Nobu
Kame2: I think that's what KenBW2 was looking for, but it might work for me too. Let me check.
KenBW2
Kame2: does it let me set settings through the command line?
Kame2
KenBW2: yes
KenBW2
Kame2: sounds promising
Nobu
Doesn't help me much, since I don't know what setting I'm looking for.
KenBW2-laptop
same here
Nobu
KenBW2-laptop: I think all settings are stored in ~/.kde/share/config or somesuch. So if all you want is to restore your (KDE) settings, can't you just copy that folder? Some other apps may have configs other folders, though.
KenBW2-laptop
Nobu: ive tried the copy-all-my-.<app>-folders approach before, it's caused me problems
Kame2
KenBW2-laptop: what exactly do you want to do?
Nobu
I've found what I wanted, I think: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=181798#c4
Kame2: He wants a way to backup & (after a fresh install) restore his KDE settings.
KenBW2-laptop
Nobu: not necessarily backup, just set a load of settings in a bunch of commands
Nobu
I assume after obtaining the list of settings, he'd want to be able to use them in a command to write them back later, correct?
ivan|away
visit http://community.kde.org/Events/Akademy/2010/Attendees and add yourself to the list (if you're attending ofc)
KenBW2-laptop
Nobu: exactly
Kame2
KenBW2-laptop: so you cold use kwriteconfig but you don't know the exact options and files?
KenBW2-laptop
Kame2: you got it
Kame2
ok
and there are to many options so it's just not possible to look at the possible config-files and find out what the options are?
KenBW2-laptop
Kame2: is that all there is to it?
Kame2: navigating the .kde folder?
Kame2
as long as the corresponding setting was set before. If you never changed a setting there will be no config-entry as is just uses the default
KenBW2-laptop
Kame2: that's possibly a good thing
Kame2
but theoretically you should find most interessting options by looking in ~/.kde/share/config and /usr/lib/share/config (possible some variation in path depending on ditribution)
Nobu
Nope, looks like AutoScrolling isn't the setting I'm looking for...
Kame2
Nobu: your problem is that to scroll, the message-area has to be active (to get mouse and keyboard events) so i think it's not possible to get a 'shift - up' to the message-list area
Nobu
Kame2: I was afraid of that, but thought I'd try anyway. Thanks!

hi, is there any way to sync akregator with google reader? (kde 4.4.... or in the next 4.5)
