I currently use t-bird with an nntp account pointing to gmane to read
this list and sereral others. Does kde have an nntp client program of
any sort? I don't see it as a possible new account type in kmail. Also,
search with kpackagekit yields nothing with "usenet" or "nntp" that is
I just found out that Kate was not installed by default on Fedora 16
even though I had selected 'KDE Software Development' during
installation. KDevelop is installed, but not Kate.
Was this a concious decision or a mistake?
Yesterday I upgraded from F15 to F16. This went smoothly (almost) but
after the restart there were ugly processes running and tacking much of
the CPU power: tracker-*
AFAIK these processes are the "nepomuk" part of gnome and I don't need
them. Why are the tracker processes activated in a typical KDE environment?
Can I add the F15 repos and downgrade KMail? I REALLY don't like KMail 2. It's
slower than molasses at the North Pole in January and it's a huge resource hog
to boot. I absolutely HATE the new version and if I can't go back to a version
that works, I'll have to find a new email client! :(
I've reported this problem 2 years ago:
The problem is still present in F15 KDE Spin. ¿Could we please find some
kind of solution? Again, I'm willing to help in any way, but I think that
this problem must be priorized by the KDE SIG, especially since Anaconda
devs have stated that they will not fix the problem (see comment 6).
Kevin Kofler suggested to create a kdialog wrapper. Is it possible? I think
even I can help with that part of the solution.

I did a fresh install with kde4 - and I want to copy the networkmanager
applet connections from another laptop - can someone tell me which files
to copy from old to new laptop so it has the same already working
wireless and wired networks setup?
I looked in ~/.kde/share/apps/networkmanagement
(I don't have a ~/.kde4 directory)
/connections - empty directory
/secrets - has uuid like file names each with psk=<passwords>
but i cannot find the list of connections - even tho I found the
I had the plasmoid set to store as plain text.
thanks for any help ...
After today's update to amarok 2.5.0, start amarok gives:
Amarok could not find any collection plugins. It is possible that Amarok is
installed under the wrong prefix, please fix your installation using:
$ cd /path/to/amarok/source-code/
$ su -c "make uninstall"
$ cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` && su -c "make install"

This is a fully updated F16 system running KDE.
"Nepomuk File Indexing Service Not Running" is the status that appears
when I hover over the Neomuk icon in the SysTray. Additionally, if I
bring up the "System Setting" application and choose "Desktop Search"
the "System Settings" application will hang.
Obviously something got borked. How can I either track down what is
borked or what can I safely delete to reinitialize the Nepomuk system?
A common mistake that people make when trying to design something
completely foolproof was to underestimate the ingenuity of complete
fools. -- Douglas Adams in "Mostly Harmless
