For some time I have been having difficulties with the KDE clipboard.
For example: if I select text in a Konsole session, right click and select copy, the selected text rarely shows up in the clipboard list. When it does show up, it is NEVER selected. As a matter of fact, if it does get added to the clipboard, it shows up in the second line, with the top line blank. When I do see the "copied" text and click on it, it never get selected selected the first time, and often not on the second or third attempt.
This seems to have gotten worse in the last month or so, to the point that cut&paste isn't any fun anymore.
Any ideas on where to look to to discover what is going on?
On Fedora 21 fully updated, with lots of hardware.
I have migrated from F21 to F22 and I have some issues, maybe someone
posted yet them on this list, sorry for this:
1. after "screen energy saving" is resumed by moving mouse, screen is very
2. I am unable to scroll contacts with tab when composing a message using
When I highlight text in Fedora-21/KDE it is transferred to the Clipboard,
which I can access by the scissors icon ("Clipboard Contents") in my panel.
In Fedora-22/KDE the clipboard icon is changed -
it looks like 2 sheets of paper but is still called "Clipboard Contents" -
and highlighted text no longer appears there.
Am I missing something?

After fedup to f22 (from f20) I see the kf5 is now active. I have been
unable to get a custom plasma comic working that previously worked in
f20 (and f21 on another computer). It contains "print" statements that
previously were useful in kf4 using command
and the printed debug strings appeared in the konsole.
However, now with kf5 when I run this (now called plasmawindowed) I only see
unversioned plugin detected, may result in instability
Unable to load applet "comics" with arguments ()
(I see the same message regardless of the argument, e.g.,
Is there a way to run and debug a custom comic with kf5 at the command line?
I run 6 virtual desktops and I keep one reserved for a konsole instance (actually on all desktops) and libreoffice.
When starting libreoffice it would always start with the desired width. However, there was always about a quarter to half inch gap between the window border and the top of the display. If I extended it to reach the top, and restarted it would always comeback to the original way with the gap. The bottom is at the top of the systray.
To solve this, I moved the whole window to the top of the display. There was a gap at the bottom, so I extended it to the systray to remove the gap. On restart, everything remained as I wanted.
If I wanted a blog or social media I'd go elsewhere
I'm sure this must be a faq somewhere because google finds so much
discussion of it over many years, but with no obvious solution.
When an nfs mount stops being available unexpectedly, under some
circumstances, the panel will freeze.
Does anyone know if there is a way to stop the panel freezes happening
or which component of KDE is causing it?
I run in a dual-monitor environment. The second monitor is mostly tasked with running video content. Live games from mlb.com as well as the "slingbox" application in Facebook to watch content from a Slingbox located in the US.
When everything is running normal the video is smooth and the Xorg process is showing between 33%~40% CPU usage in "top". After sometime, maybe a day maybe longer or shorter, the video will no longer be smooth and it seems like a "swipe" or "scan" video from top to bottom. At that time the Xorg process is showing 90%+ usage in top.
Stopping the video application brings Xorg usage to less than 20%. But upon starting again, it will go back up to 90%+. Restarting plasmashell will put things back to normal.
Has anyone seen something similar?

On Fedora 21 KDE 4.14.9
All of a sudden, when I maximize apps, the apps are maximizing underneath my
panel. My panel is set to always visible. I cannot seem to find the file
governing this behaviour.
Any ideas how I can fix this?

Recently I had to log into Gnome 3 (don't ask) and noticed to my
surprise that the Bluetooth widget showed the remaining battery charge
on my mouse.
Anyway, is there a way to do this in KDE? I'd also be interested in
reading the level on my BT headphones.
