I have a new audio issue with KDE on 5.7.1 which is a regression from
5.6.5. I have created this bug on the KDE tracker for this:
Is there a workaround for this?
Copy of the bug report follows:
I have an Intel-HDA card with PulseAudio 7.1.1 on Fedora 23. My card
is hooked up to both my external speakers as well as a headset. I can
switch the audio from headset to speakers by using the commands:
pactl set-card-profile alsa_card.pci-0000_00_1b.0
pactl set-sink-port alsa_output.pci-0000_00_1b.0.analog-surround-40
amixer -c $CARD sset "Auto-Mute Mode" Disabled
amixer -c $CARD sset 'Headphone',1 100 mute
pactl set-card-profile alsa_card.pci-0000_00_1b.0
pactl set-sink-port alsa_output.pci-0000_00_1b.0.analog-stereo
amixer -c $CARD sset "Auto-Mute Mode" Enabled
amixer -c $CARD sset 'Headphone',1 100 unmute
As of Plasma 5.7.1, the above commands still work, but KDE seems to
lose its connection to PulseAudio when they are run. In
`.xsession-errors`, immediately upon the switch I see:
org.kde.plasma.pulseaudio: No object for name
After that point, I cannot, use the volume up/down/mute keys
successfully. Though moving the sliders in the pulse-pa applet does
A restart of plasma restores the connection to pulseaudio and restores
the up/down/mute key functionality.
Thanks everyone for all the testing a feedback, just now we've queue'd
kf5-5.24.0 and plasma-5.7.1 for f23/f24 stable updates.
That means I can start work on sending plasma-5.7.2 to -testing. Notable
* kwin default decoration back to breeze (from plastique)
Only the default decoration changed... perhaps you had manually set the decoration at some point?

I just updated my F24 box and there were apparently a bunch of KDE related
updates. (Not sure which, exactly.) When I rebooted (because bloody
plasmashell was taking 80% CPU, again) the interface is all jacked up.
For example, what's with the little button next to the program icon in the
upper left hand corner? It appears to do absolutely nothing when I click
Also, why does the text in the title bar of a window (like Chrome) that's
not in focus looked all greyed out and illegible?
Is there any way to change the settings back to something that doesn't suck?

I just applied the most recent patches on F24 KDE, and everything seems
groovy except for kwrite: in the main menu, View / Borders / Show
Scrollbar Mini-Map is always on, even after I turn it off.
Anyone else seeing this?

Hello. For a long time (Plasma 5) I have noticed that if use akonadi, the
startup time is markedly increased. I read a lot about this problem, but
working solution I haven't found. Is there a way to use akonadi without effect
a slow start?
this is a Fedota24 fully dnf updated
This was Fedora14 and then I upgraded always the same box.
After last upgrade 23->24, I lost my note (I had only one note) of KNotes.
The first time i run KNotes after upgrade I got a full black window.
Now yesterday I tried to fix it and I setup yellow background, but my
note was vanished
I read this https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=333640
but I haven't knotesmigrator
Can I convert the files containing my old note
in a plain text files? I could read it with kate and so I could be operative
KMail and Kontact do not seem to provide their Handbooks on my laptop
(Fedora-24/KDE), although they are available online.
Can I find a Fedora package or RPM with the Handbooks?
Alternatively, where exactly are the KDE Handbooks stored?
I have the KNode Handbook on the laptop, but couldn't find
where it is kept.
("lsof | grep -ir knode" found nothing, with the Handbook open.
Is there a way of finding out where a page one is looking at is stored?)
I guess if I knew that, I could download the online ones,
and access them by clicking on the Help button.

What can I have broken that means I can't edit any settings in KsystemLog?
At the moment I want to change settings for the Cron Log (it shows nothing
even though the file is filling up, so I imagine I must turn off "Enable process
filtering) and the files to scan for the mail log.
All the dialogues are there, but the "OK" button is always grey.
This is the case on both my F22 and my F24 installations.
It is still the case if I start it from the CLI when logged in as root,
although it always asks me to validate as root anyway.
