I discovered in a recent update that KDE now directly supports the
"windows" key for launching the start menu. So I removed ksuperkey and the
auto-start entry, and everything works fine! Except that after some time,
it stops working.
So far I haven't been able to pin down a specific action that causes it to
break, but I am trying to do so.
Has anyone else seen this?
There was a gpgme update last night and this morning I notice
that kmail doesn't work any longer.
When I start it from the command line, I get the error message:
kmail: relocation error: /lib64/libKF5Gpgmepp-pthread.so.5:
symbol gpgme_pubkey_algo_string, version GPGME_1.1 not defined in
file libgpgme.so.11 with link time reference
My question is about Wayland. Using, sddm, is Xorg the default unless
you enable Wayland in the sddm.conf file?
I am about to upgrade three other machines and with Nvidia not
supporting Wayland, then I want to ensure that I can still use the
Nvidia closed source drivers.
I installed a package a few weeks back and added a widget to my Plasma
panel for easy access. I subsequently removed the package so the widget
now points at nothing, but I can't seem to get rid of it. None of the
right-click options seem to apply.
This can't be that hard can it?

I had a similar problem some years ago but with KDM. I had to tell it
what monitor to use on boot as there was a projector and monitor configured.
Can you get to your BIOS screen when you boot with the UHD monitor? If
not, then you have to sort that out first. You have to configure the
system to default to the UHD monitor.
On my dual monitor system at work, I get boot screen on both monitors so
I wonder if there is an issue with the ATI card.
Is this a built in video card on the mother board?
what about forward fedora tickets to upstream?
no - when you have write permissions the correct way is always to write
into the file directly because then you don't even need write
permissions on the folder
and don't give write permissions on the folder is the only way to
prevent users from replace files which they are not allowed because with
write permissions in a directory is enough the rename read-only files
and create a new one with the same name
guess what happens with kate - "you hae no permissions..." when you try
to save a file even owned by you in a ro-folder *because* of that
tempfile behavior i am talking about
the issue exists for much longer than 2014 and was multiple times
reported - and no don't pint me to the upstream bugtracker, they don't
care about bugreports when they don't come from distro maintainers (
I see this fairly often, I use spectacle to grap screenshots of grapgs
for a report I create weekly. Often after several screen grabs I click
"take new screenshot" and I get the cursor to draw a rectangle but I
cannot get it to go away with enter or esc so I end up hard powering off
the laptop which sometimes causes other havoc
