I currently use t-bird with an nntp account pointing to gmane to read
this list and sereral others. Does kde have an nntp client program of
any sort? I don't see it as a possible new account type in kmail. Also,
search with kpackagekit yields nothing with "usenet" or "nntp" that is
Hey all, question for the List:
What would it take / whats the protocol to push forward the idea of
replacing Konqueror as the default web browser? Konqueror doesn't seem like
its going anywhere, and I really think that the user experience would be
better served if either Rekonq, or ideally, Firefox were the default
browsers. Is there any specific reason that Konqueror has stuck around as
the default for so long?
Has anyone had a problem like this?
For the past several weeks, one of my two F22-KDE machines (a Dell
Inspiron 1200 running F22 in the KDE spin) has been freezing up while
trying to bring up Plasma and two auto-starting applications. Eventually
I could get to a good session, but only after having to log out and log
back in once or twice. And sometimes the system would freeze up for no
good reason, and I would have to do a hard shutdown--holding down the
power button for five seconds.
Yesterday, during the most recent big update push (160+ packages), that
system froze up in the middle of the update. I have no idea what it was
trying to do at the time. I do know it failed to install the latest kernel.
I then used the power button to force a shutdown.
Ever since then, whenever I try to boot that system, it will boot, all
right--to the last kernel before the new one. I get to a login screen.
But when I try to log in to a Plasma desktop session, I get a brief
message, too brief to read. And then the login screen returns. Result: I
cannot start a Plasma desktop session.
But: if I designate the Session Type as a Failsafe session, I can get
in. I then arrive at a command prompt.
Now that would let me do something. I want to know what.
And I wouldn't even know what logs you'd need to see--nor how to get
them off that system and onto a system that can send e-mail.
In sum: I think I can rescue that system. I just don't know how to do
it, once I log in to a command prompt.
Does anyone know of an app that can implement xembed feature? My Pidgin
IM, DavMail Gateway, Audacious, and many other apps are annoyingly not
included in the systry because of KDE not supporting xembed. I figured
if there might be a widget that implements xembed? This is a major fail
for KDE, IMNSHO.

I notice that when I re-boot into Fedora-22
I am asked for my kdewallet password;
but when I boot into Fedora-21 I am not asked for this.
This isn't a serious inconvenience, as I don't re-boot often.
But I'd be interested to know the reason for it.
I seem to recall that this occurred in some older Fedora versions.

Today on #fedora-kde, user rom1dep complained about Dolphin (KDE 4)
taking ~5 seconds to start. He said that removing
solved the problem. Those files contained thousands of lines about old
(and no longer used) removable devices.
Since I am running Plasma 5 and I was experiencing slow Dolphin start
times too, I tried to check how many code lines had my /bookmarks.xml.
I saw that it contained 7161 lines, for 228 KiB of disk space. I tried
to remove those files, then logged out&in from Plasma, and then I saw
that Dolphin required much less time to start. Removing those files did
not affect the resources/bookmarks that everyday I use in Dolphin.
Do you confirm that removing those files reduces Dolphin start time?
Why do they contain all that stuff about unused removable devices? I
could see lines of XML code about Fedora 16
I have a laptop with F21 running well. I have been trying to get the
alerts to work for the battery monitor. Some times they do but most
times they do no.
Screen dimming will work if the battery is low some times. Pop up
message will work sometimes. Audible alarm will work some times.
Most times, the only indication that the battery is critical is when the
I have not found any decent documentation.
Battery indication is working with the battery widget on the panel. I
did all the configuration from this dialogue.
I need to get it working reliably.
What do I look for when testing?
Here are the power configuration files.
I have spent over a year trying to figure out how to remove "Places" and
recent files from my file open and save dialogues.
At work and home, I deal with lots of different files in many different
directories (folders) at a time. The "Places" and recent files are more
of a distraction and problem than my time is worth. I have tried to use
them but due to my work flow, they just don't fit. I prefer to use the
keyboard to select the work directories or file names as I can type
faster than I can click and refresh the screen.
I would like to remove them from the dialogues. I will consider an
option to replace the application/widget if needed.
Is it possible to remove places?
Or is it something I just have to ignore?
