Since there was a discussion about dropping Amarok from the KDE spin
since it's still Qt4 based, I looked at alternatives and found Juk and
It seems that Elisa is more modern of the two. But I wasn't able to find
a Fedora package.
Any reasons for not packaging Elisa yet (other than the obvious - no
I've gotten around on installing plasma on this Thinkpad S1 Yoga. I've found out that (properly configured) firefox doesn't respond to touch anymore, whereas it works as expected under openbox. All touch-friendly kde applications work on both WM/DEs (krita, okular). Replacing kwin by openbox under plasma doesn't fix neither.
I've tracked the issue to gtk3 gestures not working at all on plasma: you can check by
gtk3-demo --run=gestures # rotate, pinch gestures should draw a color rectangle.
Am I missing something ? I haven't found any similar issue or reported bug after tedious googling.
Just updated to test frameworks-5.48, one slight issue was this:
Error: Transaction check error:
file /usr/lib64/libKF5Activities.so.5 from install of kf5-
kactivities-5.48.0-2.fc28.x86_64 conflicts with file from package kf5-
from install of kf5-kactivities-5.48.0-2.fc28.x86_64 conflicts with file from
Removing kf5-kactivities-5.47 allowed the update to then go fine, but of
course I am left with kf5-kactivities-libs-5.47 and cannot install kf5-
Am I right in thinking kf5-kactivities-libs is no more?

yesterday I noticed that I am unable to send email messages on kmail using stmp
to an outlook server. It worked with no problem until yesterday.
This is strange since I never had this problem until yesterday and I can send
messages using k9mail (on android) using (seemingly) the same setup.
I am using TLS over port 587 and using Login as the authentication method.
The error that shows in the logs (using journalctl -xb) is:
akonadi_maildispatcher_agent: org.kde.pim.ksmtp: LoginJob: Couldn't choose an
authentication method. Please retry with : ("GSSAPI", "NTLM")
This seems consistent with the fact that if I try autodetect the encryption type it says that there
I was fooling around with the Settings panel and must have done
something I shouldn't, because now the fonts for KDE apps are all
wrong. GTK apps are unaffected. I enclose a small screenshot to
illustrate. Note that the left-hand side looks fine, while the right-
hand side is clearly wrong. The same fuzziness affects the Plasma panel
and the Konsole fonts.
I've no recollection of touching the font configuration, but I guess
anything is possible. How can I restore sanity?
in ksnapshot when you selected a rectangle and after the snapshot said
"new screenshot" by default the same rectangle was kept which is great
when you produce a step-by-step howto, now you need to select again and
again by hand
also the delay "on click" makes no sense for a rectangle but disable it
makes "window behind the pointer" useless
given that it's an optical clone of ksnapshot why didn't the developers
care about usability?
I found a Python script (I think on Github, but I can't seem to locate
the URL or the original author) that saves or restores the desktop
location of each open Firefox window*. It does this by calling
wmctrl(1) and storing/loading the location as a JSON data structure.
The data structure is indexed by the window title, but Firefox changes
the title based on the currently active tab in each window. Thus the
saved data will depend on which tab happens to be active in each
The script already works when called manually but I just want to
automate the process when I log in or out of KDE.
The Save script has to run *after* Plasma starts and all my windows are
already created. According to the KDE manual, this seems to rule out
The Restore script should run just before killing any running windows.
It should also work even if I reboot directly from the KDE Leave tab
without logging out.
Is this possible?
* It would be trivial to modify the script for other apps.
