I have the compose key set to Scroll lock, but is seems to ignored. I've tried setting a different compose key, but that did not work either.
If I type Compose o o I expected a degree symbol to get printed, but instead all I see in oo
Nothing I've found on on Google tells me anything I haven't already tried.

I have build an old version of audacity (audacity-2.4) from source and
placed the executable in ~/bin. When I start audacity from the command
$ audacity-2.4 98.03.14-a.aup
everything runs as it should. But when attempt to start audacity-2.4
from dolphin clicking
dolphin->98.03.14-a.aup->rt-click/Open With->Other Application-
the program started is audacity not audacity-2.4 . Similarly it's not
possible to start audacity-2.4 from the Start Button on the Panel.
I don't have the problem with xv, which I also build from source and
placed in ~/bin .

When Discover reports an upgrade with system implications (say a new

1. Discover downloads the files for the upgrade
2. Discover requests a reboot. After the user allows the reboot
3. Discover reboots the system
4. Discover installs the new kernel (or whatever)
5. Discover reboots the system (again)
What is the reason for the additional reboot before installing the new
kernel (step 3)?

I use some Fkeys redefined in vim (F1,F2,F5,F6,F10,F11) and they all worked before. Recently (I don't use them all the time) F11 (only) stopped working and instead it switches to "full size" konsole,.
I found it defined in the settings of Konsole (is this new?) and changed it to "None", now it doesn't maximize anymore but it just "dings" and is not passedto the program.
Is there something else to be done?
I just switched to KDE from XFCE on F34 so I could start using Wayland but I find the problem in the Subject . . in Vim I used to be able to copy to the System Clipboard with:
to copy five lines eg - now that doesn't work - is this a KDE or Wayland or Plasma problem? - is there an easy fix?
I want to re-calibrate my screen / display. I'm running Fedora 34 - KDE spin
If I go to System Settings --> Color Corrections
then I see my devices, but I also see this message:
"You need Gnome Color Management installed in order to calibrate devices"
I have installed gnome-color-manager.x86_64 and rebooted but I still see
Thanks in advance
Before the upgrade, a single click on an item, file or directory, would open the file or switch to the directory. Now it requires a double click to do that. I can find no configuration option that controls this action.
Can someone tell me where to look to fix this? I would definitely like that old single click method back.
From time to time, I've brought up the issue about Plasma VMs in qemu no longer auto-resizing as the
dimensions of the console window were changed.
I file BZ's on redhat bugzilla and think I may have done so upstream as well. There was never
any feeback or work seeming being done to address it.
Anyway, turns out it has more to do with Plasma (Xorg) no longer processing desktop files in
I've closed https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1951173 with my local workaround.
Yet it would be nice if something could be incorporated in KDE releases.
