Since RC1 I have had frequent problems with highlight/middle-click not
working. Often I can paste with Ctrl-V when middle-click does nothing.
The second problem is that klipper seems to get stuck, sometimes - possibly
connected with the dbus bug? Anyway, when that happens I can't view the
cliboard. Using System Activity I can send the Signal STOP, wait until I see
it stopped, then send the Signal CONT. After that the clipboard content is
visible and usable again.

New to KDE Software? - get help from http://userbase.kde.org
While at FUDCon back in Dec, it occurred to me to come up with
1. some specs and requirements to use as objective criteria when it comes
to choices about default applications in fedora-kde.
2. general wishlist/todo items to make better
In general, these are items that are doable in the F13-development
I have a couple of ulterior motives when it comes to requirements and
1. It's inevitably a FAQ about "why did you include app <foo> instead of
2. I'm disgruntled about a couple of our current default choices (*cough*
kbluetooth, kpackagekit *cough*), and would like to explore other
So, please comment on what you consider to be core requirements when it
1. packagekit frontend/integration
2. networkmanager frontend
3. bluetooth device support
4. phonon backend
5. anything else you can think of...
I am not a software developer. I am a day-to-day home computer user and I like to
have my system running, up-to-date, and capable of all that the installed software
is capable of (given any hardware limitations).
What are bindings?
Do I need all of them?
Which ones do I need?
What if I don't have some of them installed?
I am confused and yum info package does not make it any clearer: qt bindings to
python, kde3 bindings to python, qscintilla pyqt4 bindings, etc.
What do they do? Are they just for software development, or do these programs need
to be 'bound' to eachother to get the software to function with all of it's
A while back, when we were upgrading to kde-4.3.90, I had to uninstall a number of
these various and sundry bindings to python to get the upgrade to work. I cannot
notice any difference without them. As far as I am able to ascertain, they don't
appear to be required. Now, a few, well... qscintilla-python, are again available
and I am asking myself: should I slavishly reinstall all of these packages when
they don't seem to actually do anything? Or are they really doing something more
subtle that is not immediately apparent?
I plugged in a USB Bluetooth device, and tried to add a new device
with KBluetooth, but would not allow me to add an Audio device, only
an Input device, which itself did not find my headset.
I had to use the gnome bluetooth-applet to add my headset.
I'm running F12/ KDE with all the latest updates.

I am running dual displays within 1 KDE session.
I have 2 panels installed on my main display.
1 panel is at the bottom of the display. It has the system tray and a
bunch of application icons
The other panel is at the top of the display. It has a Pager and Task
Manager Widget installed on it.
I generally have 6 to 15 applications open at one time, spread across 2
to 5 desktops. Typically 1 Evolution app, 1 or 2 Open Office apps, 3 to
5 browsers, 2 to 6 Okular apps, Eclipse, digiKam, etc.
I have my system set up to show applications in Task Manager on a
desktop by desktop basis.
I have 2 problems:
1) Some application icons are appearing on the taskbar for multiple
desktops. For example, I might open FF in Desktop 5 but an icon for it
will appear in both Desktop 5 and Desktop 2, even though I do not have a
FF application running in Desktop 2.
2) When I close an application with an icon appearing on multiple
desktops, the icon remains in the task manager and there is now way to
get rid of it, short of ending the session. Not a nice thing to have
to do when one has 6 to 15 applications open.
The application seems to close properly. It seems as though the taskbar
isn't getting rid of the icon.
Does this happen to anyone else ?
It was reported to me that ktechlab and piklab(both still using kde3
libs) are crashing upon launch on F-12. I confirm those crashes and I
suggest it's some modifications you made to the fedora kde3 libs. Both
ktechlab and piklab still have a long way before we see a stable qt4
version of each, hence I would appreciate if you can look why these
apps are failing to pull proper kde3 libs.
I am curious why Dolphin shows different ordering when sort by filename than
showed by 'ls' in terminal. For example, see:
I think the one shows by "ls" makes more sense, especially in this particular
case where the file name seems to have hex numbering in it.
I am wondering if this was intentional, or a bug in Dolphin.
