I like Yum Extender myself. Interface isn't the best but it has been a
workhorse for me since it came out as Yumex.
Following on from the previous thread, I would like to suggest more:
1) kmail should not depend on grantlee-editor.
This will remove 3 x icons from the Internet applications menu. I'm not sure
anyone would care about losing this from the live image.
2) Replace kgpg with kleopatra.
kgpg is not used by kmail at all. It is used with Kleopatra for gpg
functionality. I know the functionality is slightly different, but seeing a
you can't use gpg in kmail without it, I believe it makes sense.
3) Remove kde-partitionmanager.
The installer comes with an advanced partitioning system now. This seems
4) Remove krusader.
The featured file manager is Dolphin. It doesn't really make sense to ship 2 x
file managers. You could easily install it again after transferring the
install image to disk - but for basic file operations, dolphin is more than
5) Remove kfrb.
I don't believe we need this on a live image at all?
6) Remove kcharselect.
I don't believe we'd need this on a live image?
So - on a procedural thing, how would we go about actually implementing some
of these when we get some kind of agreement?

Hey everyone. We're going to have a hard time keeping KDE a release-blocking
spin if the QA team doesn't get more active help from KDE SIG folks. I
know many of you are active and involved, but we're getting into a
sitation where a lot of fairly bad bugs are found at the last minute
because no one looked before the QA person running through the final
battery of tests.
Particularly, the "everything installed by default must basically
function" criteria is really hard. KDE installs a lot more than
Workstation does, so a lot of testing is required. Paring down this
list would obviously help, but so would simply going through everything
using nightly builds once F27 branches in about a month (see the
schedule here: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/27/Schedule) and
marking anything that should be a blocker as such -- and then repeating
that again at Final Freeze. That way, it won't come down to discovering
big problems literally on the day we want to send the release out the
door -- which forces us to make hard decisions.
Fedora Project Leader
Just recently updated to F26 from F25 on my everyday system and decided to give
dnfdragora a go.
Today the dnfdragora icon popped up (actually it was there when I re-logged in) on my
systray to inform me that 6 updates were available. I opened the right clicked on
the icon, opened the dnfdragora dialog and updated the 6 packages. After the update
I would have expected the icon to vanish as the "Software Updates" icon does if you
use it to perform updates. Or, if you run "pkcon refresh" after using dnf. But it
remains on the systray even though "Entries" settings for dnfdragora-updater is set
Am I mistaken to expect the icon to not be displayed when no updates are pending?

I have noticed this network authorization on F25, but it doesn't need
anything and seems to be for some KDE thing.
Updated and everything seems to have gone OK.
Just a couple of nits
At login, A dialog informs me I need auth to configure network. I never had
this before - don't want it either.
I now have 2 bluetooth icons in my panel. What appears to be the older
system settings bluetooth, and now a new blueman. Guess I should get rid of
one or the other.
I am having some problems with deleting articles in Akregator.
1. Deleting takes a long time. For example, it takes 1-2 seconds for
deleting 10 articles. 3-4 seconds for 40 articles etc.
2. Deleting articles often causes "desktop effects restarted due to a
I'm running nVidia proprietary driver and I don't have any other
problems in general. Only with Akregator and deleting articles.
Any ideas on what could be the culprit?
