I've just installed the Comics Plasmoid under Plasma 5 on a Fedora 23
and I would like to develop some plugins for it.
I never programmed anything for Plasma and I've tried to follow the
this is for Plasma 4 and many things are different starting from the
location for the plugins that now is ~/.local/share/plasma/comics
instead of ~/.kde/share/apps/plasma/comics/
I didn't try to write any code yet but I checked if I have a working
system apt to develop such kind of plugins.
So I copied and renamed an existing plugins and tried to use the testing
but nothing seems to work.
I've tried to install the plugin with plasmapkg and plasmapkg with
> plasmapkg -t comic -i zits.comic
Could not find a suitable installer for package of type comic
I can't say what an installer should be or where I've to find it.
This blocked me at the beginning of my work. Any suggestion?
With the up and coming F24 beta release I wonder if anyone here is using F24
and the PIM suite, specifically Kmail as I "think" that uses Kmail 5
Any comments on how well kmail performs or any issues with it would be
appreciated. If I where to switch/test it would be with IMAP accounts.
Fedora 23 (Twenty Three)
Registered Linux user number #342953
I tried testing for
today, and found user switching to be mostly broken, in that the session I
switched away from either is killed or still seems to be running, but I
cannot seem to be able to resume it.
Does kickoff -> leave -> switch user
work for anyone else?
If I click an icon to start an application, I get a spinning window thing in the
KDE panel that never goes away :-(
This uses a significant amount of CPU time:
$ ps -ef | grep /usr/bin/plasmashell ; sleep 60 ; ps -ef | grep /usr/bin/plasmashell
patman 4086 3941 29 07:45 ? 00:00:21 /usr/bin/plasmashell --shut-up
patman 4086 3941 28 07:45 ? 00:00:37 /usr/bin/plasmashell --shut-up
I have to kill plasmashell and restart it to "fix" the problem, and I've been
avoiding it by starting applications via the command line.
I removed my .kde (well, mv-ed it), and restarted with no change in behavior.
I have plasma-workspace-5.6.3-2.fc23.x86_64 installed.
This has been happening for a while, it's not a new issue for me.
I'm running in a VMWare instance (on a Mac OS X host).
My searches haven't found anything similar.
I see that Fedora-Workstation-Live-x86_64-24_Beta-1.6.iso
is now available.
Is there a KDE version yet?
If not, when is it likely to appear?

Today's meeting was not very productive, I assume due to F24 Beta
release. Here are the minutes of what little was discussed.

This morning I was greeted by my display settings being all messed up. I
got that straightened out, but konsole still has a problem. It comes up
with the menubar off the top edge of the screen.
I can resize and move it using the taskbar. Then I can verify 'use current
size on startup' is checked in konsole/settings/general.
But on restart, it's the same. Top is off the screen.
Consideration for f25 development cycle, orphan/retire strigi.
$ repoquery --whatrequires strigi-libs
* mobi analyzer
* dvi, tiff analyzers
* not sure, a "dummy" analyzer ?
* torrent analyzer (known bad, crashy, see
* ts, xlf, po, diff analyzers
strigi is (or will be) an optional dependency in kdelibs and kdegraphics-
mobipocket (it includes an optional .mobi strigi analyzer).
In the modern plasma5 desktop, since there are fewer and fewer kde4-based
applications used (by default at least), the usefulness of these strigi
analyzers is of little value (and only declining).
Any thoughts on the idea of retiring strigi, and all these -strigi-analyzer
pkgs that depend on it?
