I seem to have activated an intensely annoying "feature" of Kwin whereby
moving a window near the top of the screen maximizes it (it appears to
be a lame idea copied from Windows). How do I turn this off? I don't see
anything obvious in System Settings->Window Behaviour.

The way to make a case for changing defaults is not: *I* don't like it,
therefore the default should be changed to match my personal preference.
Better: This configuration/feature does not make sense for our target
userbase because of compelling reasons ..., ... , ...

You mean it's not restoring as part of session management (ie, session
restoring stuff that was running when you last logged-out)?
Don't know if this is possible without hacking the Dolphin source, but
I'd like to add a tool to the pop-up menu (it's just a Shell script that
cleans up filenames to my personal taste). I'd also like to define a
keyboard shortcut for it.
I'm using KDevelop 4.6.0 on Fedora 20 with Qt 4.8.6 and KDE 4.12.5
If I write a simple C++ program that has a while loop that doesn't
terminate, KDevelop crashes. The program has no extra libraries, it is
the default KDevelop session, and it crashes and I have to kill it
from the command line.
Above is the logs for KDevelop when doing so. I've filed a bug with
KDE here: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=336267
Any help would be appreciated.
There was an issue introduced into Chrome beginning with Chrome 35
regarding KDE system tray icons. Basically, with Chrome 35 if you don't
have libappindicator installed, you don't see them at all.
If you have libappindicator installed, you see the default blank sheet of
This has been fixed now in Chrome 37 unstable.
If you don't have libappindicator it is fixed by:
which is "Add X11 status tray icon support".
If you have libappindicator installed, it is fixed by:
which is "Systray icon for notification center is not available"
There is a problem however in the implementation of 362880 that they didn't
quite get the icons sized correctly. That issue is still open:
which is "System tray indicator icons are blurry in KDE"
My understanding is that KDE5/PlasmaNext will *drop* support for the legacy
XEmbed-based system tray protocol, which means that if you are depending on
267195 to show system tray icons, it won't work. I also understand that
F21 will be using KDE5/PlasmaNext.
That being the case, it would be a good idea for all the Chromium/Chrome
users to go out and star 382487 so the Chromium team will fix this issue.
Otherwise, be prepared for blurry icons for KDE.
I installed LibreOffice group and libreoffice-kde for kde
compatibility. Before installing libreoffice-kde Sifr theme worked
fine (screenshot #1) but after installing some icons went from
monochromatic to colored (screenshot #2). Also quick-start system tray
icon also wouldn't show up after installing libreoffice-kde which
works fine without it. I removed libreoffice-kde and deleted
~/.config/libreoffice but the theme still remains a mix of colored and
screenshot2 http://i.imgur.com/VFNDkXF.png New tab is colored.
PS:- I suppose Fedora mailing list doesn't allow attachments. Does it?
