since both KDE upstream and the Fedora KDE SIG refuse to fix the regression
that Dolphin, KWrite, and Kate can no longer be run as root, I have decided
to write a small metapackage that automatically applies the binary patch to
fix the issue.
The patch that is applied is the 's/getuid/getpid/g' hack, see:
for an explanation of how it works.
The patched executables are written to /usr/local/bin. The metapackage uses
file triggers so that the patched version is automatically updated when the
original copy in /usr/bin is updated from the system package. While it would
be possible in principle with this method to apply the patches in place in
/usr/bin, I have decided against it, for 2 reasons:
1. integrity checks such as rpm -Va would fail on the patched executables,
2. delta RPMs would fail because the original RPM could not be
Writing the patched executables to a different directory avoids this issue.
After installing this package, e.g., "kdesu kwrite" should just work again.
You can get the package from the Kannolo Copr:

After the recent updates of qt5-qtwebengine there are white spaces in the
message window when using a Dark Theme.
Another user has just reported this on kde.bugs with a screen shot
I don't know if it is a kmail or qtwebengine bug or even related to mesa/

it's laughable enough that you need to add "client max protocol = SMB3"
to your /etc/samba/smb.conf with F25 or you get SMB1 connetions but that
you need to comment that line out in F26 can't be taken serious
at least Konqueror asks now for username password
dolphin hangs there waiting for whatever
well, where my manually stored passwords gone is another question
KDE Wallet Manager (wow and i should not call it KDE) version 2.0 "using
KDE Development Platform 4.14.32" should still be the old wallet
are you kidding me?
fine, now it's "ported" to KDE5
* no bookmarks
* no toolbar settings from the previous install
* no support for sftp://
* no passwords for network-locations previously used
WTF is wrong with the KDE developers attitude that the main question due
every upgrde is "curious what they broke now from my workflow"
until F26 in the action menu there was besides the basic integration a
contextmenu containing such nice things like "seek for all unversioned
items" or "show last 100 changes" which never appeared in dolphin
from where did that come and how doe sone get that back?
both are essential, especially "show all unversioned files" after bigger
refactoring in a source tree to make sure everything keeps versioned
[root@srv-rhsoft:~]$ rpm -qa | grep -i subversion
On a new Fedora 26 installation, I am seeing a delay of around 30
seconds when logging into a Plasma session. (This delay doesn't exist
on F25 on this system.)
Any ideas where I can look to figure out what is going on?

On Fedora 27, the programs using qt5-qtquickcontrols2 do not display icon or
text at all.
There are very few programs using qt5-qtquickcontrols2, one of them is plasma-
Notice the lack of caption on the "Install" buttons.
Another program that makes a heavy use of qt5-qtquickcontrols2 is Orion, a
Twitch client which I provide on COPR (https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/
The interface doesn't contain any icon on the lateral bar or any text under
Does anyone know about this bug? Is this an upstream problem?
Using F26, fully updated.
I cannot seem to be able to get manual configuration to work. No matter what I enter
the "apply" button remains gray. Has anyone tried this? I had to resort to using
GNOME to get this working.
