I'm running the latest KDE from kde-testing:
I notice that every time I restart my desktop nm-applet and
guidance-power-manager restart. I'm also running the kdenetwork applet and
the battery manager plasmoid, and don't think I need these gnome applets,
but I can't figure out how to get rid of them. I can quit them, but they
There are no entries in ~/.kde/Autostart, nor are there any listings in
the "Autostart" portion of systemsettings. Session management seems to be
working in general, in that normal applications are restarted if and only
if they were running when I logged out last. But these two applets seem
impossible to kill.
Am I right in thinking that I don't need them, and if so, how do I keep them
from starting (short of removing them from my system altogether?).
1. How can I get Kickoff straight to the left side, so that i can drop my
mouse there and blindly click the blue 'back-button'? Now there is a little
space between the button and the left edge.
2. When I open applications, they always appear is some ordered way on
the panel. In my case from left to right: Dolphin, Firefox, Kmail, Konsole.
It doesn't matter which applications is started first. Can I manipulate this
3. In Kontact -> File there are two menu-items "Quit". Is there a purpose
for this? They seems to do the same.
I'm not sure if these questions belong to this list. If not can someone
point me to the right place.
I just created a distr list in addressbook, and tried to send to it in kmail.
This did not work (tried to send to list(a)gmail.com instead). Then opened up
addressbook again, and the dist list I created is missing.
I've just updated my netbook with kde-testing enabled, and see some rather odd
and interesting changes.
KMail - like the previous version (1.11 now, was 1.10.3, IIRC) attempting to
enter a folder with 6000 encrypted emails causes kontact to crash.
Addressbookn (4.1) - when accessed from kontact there is no Crypto tab on the
edit page. Running KAddressbook from krunner, the Crypto tab is present.
Calendar - I use a remote calendar, on a CentOS server. I was able to add it,
but I presume that I will get no benefit from the Akonadi backend by doing
Can someone please remind me where I can turn off the icon on calendar
entries? I need the space.
I've been following the 4.2 rc rpms from the kde-testing repo, and did a yum
update on Saturday that updated a couple rpms. In particular it updated me
Ever since then plasma refuses to start, failing at
plasma: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/kde4/plasma_wallpaper_image.so:
I've tried the usual thing of removing plasmarc and plasma-appletsrc, but
that doesn't solve the problem.
KDE does start, and I can start programs from the command line, including
krunner. But when I try to start plasma the panel flashes on, then quits,
leaving the above message on konsole.
I've tried removing kdebase-workspace and reinstalling, but to no avail.
Has anyone else tried this update? Is it working for other people?
I can't save icon size to small (16)
How to reproduce:
change icon size to small and text position to icons only
save profile (it does not matter the new profile or the predefined one)
icons will be 22 size again
The same story with kmail and how I can observe with other applications
I'm running fedora 10 x86_64 with clean installation
Can anyone verify?
$ rpm -qa|grep Py
The user interface compliers (pyuic.py,pykdeuic4.py) don't seem to be

F9 is the same with 4.1.x
Dropping a couple of links and a chmod in ~/bin for a workaround.
