I have ibus configured for Indic language input (Malayalam mostly).
While I am able to correctly type in Thunderbird, Kate, Dolphin address
bar etc, it does not work in Plasma widgets - desktop notes or KRunner.
Do I need to install anything special or make any configurations
specifically for Plasma widgets?
On Fedora 26, KDE Spin, x86-64
I have 2 systems with kde Fedora 26 updated, one is in English other in
Portuguese, in the Portugese one, systray does not show the gnome nm-
applet , neither the gnome applet gdesklets , I tested gdesklets later
and also doesn't work .
Trying understand this behavior I see kde system tray settings
entries empty , screenshot in attach. what I can do ?

Hi: My upgrade from 25 to f26 went fairly smoothly although
installation of an unexpected nvidia update deleted all the downloaded
packages before they had been used...
But as a longstanding user of konqueror as file manager I'm finding
things have changed. I had set 'kdesu kfmclient openProfile
filemanagement' in the launcher, with a warning colour scheme for use as
root, and I have the kannolo-root-unlocker installed - but it just quits
after entering the password, and using 'Ignore' produces
'error:/?error=105&errText=' although it can then be used as non-root.
All my old bookmarks have vanished too.
I see there's a query on the fedora list about Open Office compatibility
too. I haven't investigated that.
I'm aware that konq has been out of fashion for a long time - but am I
missing some compatibility package?
What did the developers do to the K Desktop?
This morning I took the upgrade--all 100-odd parts of it. And ever since
then, I cannot afford to leave my system on for more than an hour--two
hours at the outside--without having it get progressively slower and
then hang up. I've had to force-shutdown my system and restart it to get
anything done. I've tried reverting to the "last known good kernel." No
joy. The desktop is now at fault.
I wouldn't know where to begin for filing a bug--what do I file the bug
against? All I know is--it's going to take another K desktop upgrade to
fix this. Until then, I'm running my system only intermittently.
Just updated my F26 and went to copy some files to a stick for transfer.
If I try to copy a file either with drag and drop or using Konsole and
cp, the system will not copy the full file and will just freeze. I
tried different sticks on the system with no luck.
I have tested with the same results on two different computers with
It looks like I can copy small files but large files won't work. Even
if I try copy files using sudo, it still does the same thing, using 3 or
4 processors to 100% and the copy process hangs.
I can mount the stick manually using sudo and copy files with no issue.
Mount differences are:
This is what mount shows when I use the KDE desktop
/dev/sdc1 on /run/media/user/MyStick type vfat
Mounting by sudo
/dev/sdc1 on /mnt/temp type vfat
ps shows that the process is waiting for the drive with a D+ in the
status. It will do this for an hour if I leave it.
I don't know where to start looking to report a bug to provide more
details for the bug report.

Have you tried to just restart the desktop.
I have to do this every once in a while when the machine starts doing
kquitapp5 plasmashell && kstart plasmashell
