Sound probem using optical out from the card.

I've just upgraded from a middling kde4 to kde 5.26. opensues leap 42.2

I get grunts before any sound plays and another later when the sound service drops out. Web page updates sometimes cause them too, sort oh we may need sound problem by the look of it as they don't always generate any sound so just get the grunt and later another when sound drops out.

The problem may be that phonon isn't offering me a digital output only an iec958 one. Leap's YAST sound set up utility shows 2 aux volumes, one for iec958 and another for digital. Sound's fine here. The iec one doesn't do anything.

Communication with Phabricator upstream

Hi everyone,

Just repeating my last email on this subject as it seems some folks
have missed the previous memo.

All issues with Phabricator should be logged at
<a href="https://phabricator.kde.org/tag/phabricator/" title="https://phabricator.kde.org/tag/phabricator/">https://phabricator.kde.org/tag/phabricator/</a> - not with upstream.

This is being done to avoid duplicate tasks, and to allow us to
communicate on a whole of project basis the things we consider
important. This helps simplify things for upstream.

Thanks,

problems trying to compile libpng-1.5.28

baloo Qt5.7 -> Qt5.8 oddities

Hi,

I think there is an error in src/qml/experimental/monitor.cpp / void
Monitor::balooStarted. The call m_fileindexer->registerMonitor() needs
a parameter of type const QDBusMessage& - see
src/file/filecontextindexer.h.

Now the fun part trying to explain why this was not yet detected. Ok let's try:

Notes widget: semi-transparent background

I'm in plasma 5 and I'm customizing the breeze dark theme. In my
metadata.desktop file I've got the following values in the ContrastEffetct
section:

[ContrastEffect]
enabled=true
contrast=0.45
intensity=0.45
saturation=1.7

Thanks to them, the panel, the menu, notifications, etc. are not completely
transparent, so readability is improved.

How can I apply such parameters to the Notes widget as well? Currently, if I
choose a translucent background, the widget becomes completely transparent.

Fedora Release Notes don't mention KDE anymore

I've been looking at Fedora Release Notes and starting in Fedora 23 there's no mention of KDE in the "Changes for Fedora Desktop users" link, e.g.,

<a href="https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/23/html/Release_Notes/sect-Release_Notes-Changes_for_Desktop.html" title="https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/23/html/Release_Notes/sect-Release_Notes-Changes_for_Desktop.html">https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/23/html/Release_Notes/sect-R...</a>

Is this by design?

issues with latest craft

I just tried using craft for the first time in several months, and have
run into a number of issues. Help or suggestions on any of them would
be appreciated. (I posted some of these to the IRC channel, but so far,
haven't seen any response.)

1) per an error message, I upgraded my python from 3.5 to 3.6. However,
I then got some messages about needing to set the python27 variable. Is
2.7 really needed in addition to 3.6?

Problems with KConfig XT and a string list

Hello,

I'm currently struggling with a problem that was reported against Smb4K (bug
report here: <a href="https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=377062" title="https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=377062">https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=377062</a>). When you define a
default string list in KConfig XT as follows, its list items are not extracted
to the translation catalogs and, thus, cannot be translated:

[...]
<entry name="ProfilesList" type="StringList">
<label>Profiles</label>
<whatsthis>The list of profiles.</whatsthis>
<default>Home,Work</default>
</entry>
[...]

I searched the documentation and the web, but did not find an answer.

Troubles connecting BT Headset in KdeNeon

Hi,

I have some kind of trouble configuring my bt headset. At first, BT recognized
it and "see" the headset, but when I'm try to configure it in system
preferencies It became impossible.
Searching the web I found the following workaround:

Bug and possible solution: actually I found a bug in that make the headset
unusable, it seems that the pulse audio module: module-bluetooth-discover
works only if started after the X11 session is up.

Plasma 5: screen locker font color

I am on Plasma 5, and I've been using the pre-installed Breeze Dark theme for
some time, but now I've just installed the Naked desktop theme [1], through
the Get new Theme functionality in System Settings.

I like it, but there is one thing that annoys me. The font color in the screen
locker used to be white in Breeze Dark, as well as any other standard theme,
but in Naked it is black. Since I use a pretty dark background image in the
screen locker, readability is low.

Screen power saves and goes off and desktop is lost on power up

Hi

I've got a situation where if i leave my computer long enough, with myself
logged in, that the built power save on the screen turns the screen off, the
desktop is lost (its a clack screen) when the screen comes on again, my only
solution is to ctrl-alt-backspace.
Anyone else with this issue?

Question about Multitasking on Plasma

Hi,

I've found that if i context switch from Ctrl-Alt-F7 to Ctrl-Alt-F1 (e.g. Just
immediately after entering the password and pressing <cr>), processing seems

plasma 5 desktop scripting file locations / examples?

Hi,

I am Patrick, a maintainer of Whonix, which Whonix is a Linux derivative
with at least several thousand users, that by default is using Debian
with Debian KDE packages. Is it okay if I ask a few questions on how to
pre-configure KDE as a Linux distribution?

Are you aware of any example (Debian) packages that pre-configure
plasma 5?

KIO-GDrive Install on KDE Neon LTS 5.8

I'm sorry to ask such a newbie question here, but after searching form
several hours, I couldn't find any help and this is my last hope.

I'm trying to install kio-gdrive on my KDE Neon without success.

I've just setup the system which is a Neon LTS 5.8 with Plasma 5.8.5, KDE
Frameworks 5.31, Qt 5.7.1 and LiquorixAMD64 as the kernel.

kio-gdrive does not appear on the repositories I have and sudo apt-get
install kio-gdrive does not work.

Please, someone be as kind as helping me find a way to properly add the
repository I need to have kio-gdrive installed.

what component does the screenlocking?

Hi,

Sorry for cross-posting, I'm hoping it'll increase my chances of reaching someone who has an answer to the following.

After upgrading my hardware to an N3150-based notebook, my KUbuntu 14.04 install has developed an annoying quirk. From time to time, the screensaver fails to start (= I get the default bluish background image, nothing more).

Move window to this or all desktop

Hi - I need a little help with this:

I use 4 virtual desktops and often pulls a windows from another desktop
to the currently active one. But lately - it took a while before I
realized that I did not just hit the wrong menu item - when I right
click on the program in the taskbar and select "Move to desktop" it
makes no difference if I select "Move to this" or "Move to all" (reverse
translated from Danish).

All your answers about Where to put documentation?

Hi all,

I'm often being asked about where to put documentation. I just wrote the final
guide about this.

On <a href="https://community.kde.org" title="https://community.kde.org">https://community.kde.org</a>, we have since last year a Guide and HowTos page
[1], which lists all KDE tutorial and resources.

There is a chapter about Quality and Documentation [2] in which you'll find
documentation about where to document things. I just wrote for Aditya this
page:
<a href="https://community.kde.org/Guidelines_and_HOWTOs/Documentation_in_wikis" title="https://community.kde.org/Guidelines_and_HOWTOs/Documentation_in_wikis">https://community.kde.org/Guidelines_and_HOWTOs/Documentation_in_wikis</a>

Please, if you're being asked where to put documentation, tell people to read
this page.

On the EBN we are no longer checking-out projects from subversion.
This means if you have a project hanging around in SVN you will no longer see its apidox, Krazy reports, etc.

Some questions

Hello
I was trying on this proposal:
<a href="https://community.kde.org/GSoC/2017/Ideas#Project_3_:_digiKam_Web_Services_tools_authentication_with_OAuth" title="https://community.kde.org/GSoC/2017/Ideas#Project_3_:_digiKam_Web_Services_tools_authentication_with_OAuth">https://community.kde.org/GSoC/2017/Ideas#Project_3_:_digiKam_Web_Servic...</a>
.

I had some queries and would like to have some help:

* What are some simple issues I can start working on?

* How to reduce build time while tweaking single source files? I tried
'make' inside a subfolder I am working, which took much less, but I would
like to reduce it further.

* How to set up the development environment on my system? I prefer Emacs
(Spacemacs, TBH), but can't enable library based completion.

Project Releases: Infrastructure Migration

Hi everyone,

To allow for Sysadmin to migrate the primary host for download.kde.org
and files.kde.org to another server (with significantly more disk
space) we'll need to make both of those read only for a period of time
this weekend.

During this period, it will not be possible to add/remove files to
those trees - which means projects will not be able to make releases.

To the knowledge of Sysadmin, this does not affect the release of any
project, however anyone who had plans should please contact us
immediately.

Customize some keyboard shortcuts

Hi,

I'm having a hard time to configure the keyboard shortcuts of my new
gnome-shell 3.22 session.

I would like:

1- To bind "Emacs" to "Shift+Enter". For some reason it seemes to be
impossible to use Shift+enter for a shortcut. Is there a workaround ?

2- I used to have volume down and volume up in Ctrl+PageDown and
Ctrl+PageUp. I tried to use "amixer -q set Master 5%+ unmute" and
"amixer -q set Master 5%- unmute" for this (my config in Xfce) but both
cut the audio (while working from a terminal).

3- I am using ncmpcpp (mpd client) for music.

Phabricator updated

Hi all,

Over the weekend we've updated our Phabricator instance to the latest
stable version. This has brought in a few changes which you may wish
to check out - including the ability to customise the global home menu
and setup a favourites menu for yourself to access frequently used
functions.

As the global items setup by Sysadmin cannot be overridden by users,
i've only setup a very basic set of items for everyone to use.

For those who use Arcanist, now would be a good time for you to ensure
you are running the latest stable version as well.

change the login theme

hi,
i'm trying to install a new login theme from gnome-look.org,
let us say this one for example:https://www.gnome-look.org/p/1170579/

i've followed this tutorial and succeed to change the background of the login page

the tutorial states to decompile the gresource file at /usr/share/gnome-shell/gnome-shell-theme.gresource
then add an xml file with the <gresources> tag and all the other files in the new theme dir in a <file> tag,,, i was able to change the background

but my question is how to install t

Branching retrospective question re KDE frameworks 5.x work from 2011 onwards.

In 2011, something bubbled to SlashDot from this community.

<a href="https://tech.slashdot.org/story/11/08/07/2128222/KDE-Frameworks-50-In-Development" title="https://tech.slashdot.org/story/11/08/07/2128222/KDE-Frameworks-50-In-Development">https://tech.slashdot.org/story/11/08/07/2128222/KDE-Frameworks-50-In-De...</a>

TL;DR: what branching strategy to adopt for the KDE 5.x work, given
a wish to:
1) stay abreast of 4.x fixes/releases,
and 2) not make the mistakes of the 3.x to 4.x effort (whatever they were).

May I ask what actually happened re branching, merging, cherry picks
(back and forth) and all that, and what veterans think about it all
looking back?

This is really a question for posterity.

Keyboard not working in KDM

Hi list!

I'm installing my new PC, using Debian 8 and KDE.

Well, the basic are installed and it works, but I have a strange problem...
If I want to log in, I don't have any problem, but if I want to shutdown the
PC, I can't type the admin-password (so I configured KDM).
I use KDE 4.11.13 from Debian repositories and I can send the configuration
files you need.

Can someone help me solving this problem?

Communication with Phabricator upstream

Hi all,

To help simplify things for Phabricator upstream, they've asked that
only a couple of people bring things to their attention (including
filing tasks). This helps them with figuring out our priorities as a
project in regards to usage of Phabricator.

Please therefore file all issues / etc you hit regarding Phabricator
on our own instance, tagging them with the project "Phabricator".

At the moment i'm the one liasing with them primarily, although i'll
be looking to bring one or two others on board soonish.

Thanks,
Ben

Plasma Vault is in kdereview

Hi all,

I'm announcing that Plasma Vault is in the review phase - you can get
it from kde:plasma-vault or with kdesrc-build plasma-vault.

Plasma Vault is a system for easy creation of encrypted data storage
(not for whole system encryption - we have distribution installers for
that).

It is consisted of:
- kded daemon that handles most of the logic
- Plasma applet to provide the UI

Features:
- Supports encfs and cryfs (more to come later)
- Vaults can be limited to certain activities (automatically closing
when you leave the activity it belongs to)

More info at [1] and [2]

Cheers,
Ivan

Suggestion to Remove KFloppy and hold back K3b

We tested some legacy media at the Plasma sprint

I recommend KFloppy be removed from Applications releases. It
couldn't find my floppy drive and when I hacked the code to tell it
where to look it depended on an external tool fdformat which didn't
work anyway.

KDE configuration outside of the GUI

Hello

RedHat 6 desktops:

I have googled as extensively as I can, and I haven’t seem an answer
to my query. I would like to configure krfb on a number of systems
and this will be recurring a lot. To be able to scale, I am looking
on a way to set up VNC, without always going through the GUI,
essentially, something like this document below, but CLI centric

win32libs/wcslib does not build (download location gone)

Hi,

I just noticed that win32libs/wcslib doesn’t build.

KDE version 1.x

I don't know how much interest there will be.

But for those who are interested in being able to see and use a piece of
history, some of you may know that one of the KDE developers had done a
bunch of work on KDE version 1 to be able to run it on a modern Linux
system. There really aren't any instructions on getting it compiled and up
and running however, and it's not entirely straightforward.

I wanted to see if anyone was interested in binaries so they can try it out
for themselves without having to compile it. I've made a tarball with
working 32-bit binaries including necessary libraries.

favorites not dragable in Kmail

Dear all,

I use Kmail 5.3 that ships with maui 2.1 (see attached screenshot). In Kmail I
cannot manually sort / drag the favorite folders.

I have set the option to manually drag the favorites as can be seen in the
screenshot.

Is this a known bug?

Thank you very much for a short hint!

Kind regards,

I. Thomas

Recent KAuth build failure in Craft on Mac

Hi, this is Rob Lancaster. I help out with KStars coding. I mainly have been porting it to mac with several other people. We have been using Craft/emerge for building it for deployment which has worked very well overall for several months (except for several problems that Hannah von Reth has helped us with). But just the other day, a build error showed up that had not happened before. KAuth failed to build, which is of course a dependency, causing our whole build to fail.
I don't have GLIBC on my system of course and this appears to be the source of the error.

NOW is the time to fill in the Ideas page for GSoC! Application deadline 9 Feb.

Hello GSoC mentors, and teams supporting mentors,

We've asked for more time to get ramped up for GSoC, and so the
calendar has been moved back to early February. However, that means
that our Ideas page needs to be filled NOW, so that it can be taken
into consideration once the Org Applications are all in. The quality
of our ideas and the guidance they give our students are the most
important part of our application.

FTP with SSL/TLS in Dolphin

Hi, is there a reason why FTP with SSL/TSL (ftps://) has not been implemented
in Dolphin?

There are some wishlist bug reports about, like the following from from 2003:
<a href="https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=66117" title="https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=66117">https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=66117</a>

There was a kio-ftps, but it didn't work very well. Furthermore, it hasn't
been ported to Plasma / KF 5.

I wonder whether this protocol is somehow discouraged, or it's just a missing
feature.
