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
Looking over some broken deps reports, I came across some old packages:
Of these, the only one that's not a pure leaf package is perl-Qt (debconf-
kde depends on it).
any comment or objection to considering orphaning most (all minus
smokeqt/perl-Qt) or all of these ?

should know, we prepare a lists of highlights about each release, called

This points help us, as Marketing team, as well to Ambassadors, to
publicize each release with the news and cool stuff.
For this matter and this release, we have this wiki page:
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_26_talking_points and we will be
happy to include the new things in the KDE Spin.
You can help us in both ways:
1. Editing the wiki directly with the points.
2. Throwing us the list, and we will put them in the wiki.
Thanks in advance for your help and for your efforts.

As I mentioned in a status report mail yesterday, openQA seems to hit
crashes / hangs in KDE startup quite often also; it sometimes just gets
stuck with the KDE splash screen partly complete, or winds up at a
black screen with a KDE-ish cursor visible but nothing else. I haven't
had time to dig into the logs and see if I could diagnose a pattern to
the failures, though...

Has anyone else experienced this? Fairly frequently I find that kwin
on F25 is not starting on login, there are no window decorations (e.g.
title bar) and all new windows start at top left with no apparent way
to move them. The solution seems to be to start a console and run
This morning however I didn't even have a desktop, just a cursor and
an otherwise black screen. What was working was that typing brought up
the command bar at the top of the screen, so I was able to start
konsole. "kstart kwin" and "kstart kwin --replace" didn't seem to
achieve anything (though maybe I could have waited longer), eventually
tried "kstart plasmashell" and things seemed to run again.
This is the nouveau driver. I've had problems on F25 with getting
stuck at the splash screen ("K") after login, but adding nomodeset to
the kernel line in grub seemed to alleviate that, and I was using
nomodeset this morning.
