profiling startup

I see there was some discussion over startup times on IRC.

If you want to profile startup you'll want to use systemd-bootchart
[1] it tracks resources usage during boot, which is valuable
information in finding out why it may be slow (outside slowness in
software).

For debugging the actual session-start you can have a look at [2]
which will tell you how to profile a plasma session on x or wayland.

KDE Wallet System Is Buggy on My System

Hello,

It always prompt me for the password. But strangely, it only does this for passwords chosen with the "store password only for this user" option in the wi-fi password manager.

Kmail/Kontact question

Hey all. In Kmail/Kontact, in the email viewing section of the program,
there's a black bar that says "HTML Message." I used to be able to turn that
off but now I can't seem to find the option to do so anywhere in this new
version of Kubuntu. (19.04). Will this option return later on in a future
update to the software? Almost all emails are composed as HTML these days and
I'm ok with that because it's cool to have pics, links and all of that. I just
don't the bar on the side.

Trusty point release

Hello folks, at the time Trusty became 14.04 and then the LTS, Kubuntu
pledged support for 5 years. While that 5 years is nearly up, there is a
pending point release:

"we will be respinning new point-releases for trusty and xenial in the
nearest days because of the apt vulnerability that was fixed recently. Do
you want to participate in this security-point-release?" (from the
#ubuntu-flavors IRC chan).

Neither Rik nor I have time to do the necessary testing. Does someone else
want to step up and organize this?

Radeon graphics card

Hey guys I'm new at Linux and I'd like to know if there's a way to check if Kubuntu is using my graphics card. I have a Radeon HD graphics card and on Windows I could check that just by going to system info, but now on Kubuntu I don't see it anywhere. Neither on the driver manager or in the graphics section of system info. Hope someone could help me out with that. EOF

KDE Applications backports in Cosmic

Hi,

I've noticed that several KDE Applications updates were release since

Installation alongside Windows 10 Home Edition

Hi,

I am currently attempting to install Kubuntu 18.04.1 on a HP Pavilion

In preparation, I shrunk the C: drive to get some 400GB of free storage on

xdg-desktop-portals & kubuntu

Hola

I thought I should point out that the Ubuntu Desktop team is looking
into SRUing a new xdg-desktop-portals and gnome frontend to the
supported LTSes. It probably would be a good idea for Kubuntu to also
SRU the frontend for Plasma systems. Desktop portals are a central
part of integrating confined bundles (e.g. snap, flatpak) into the
host system, without them the user experience suffers tremendously.

Also see: <a href="https://forum.snapcraft.io/t/kde-integration-xdg-desktop-portal/8880" title="https://forum.snapcraft.io/t/kde-integration-xdg-desktop-portal/8880">https://forum.snapcraft.io/t/kde-integration-xdg-desktop-portal/8880</a>

Issues with cdimage server

I'm pretty sure someone already knows this but the cdimage.ubuntu.com server doesn't seem to be working correctly. I downloaded the latest daily build to begin this weeks testing phase (my own schedule), and there's problems with the ISO. I created my startup disk as usual but upon restart, I get a big error box that says the installer's not working properly and I tried this three times and I got the same error each time.

bad font hinting firexof/thunderbird

Hello,

here I am again with my periodic issue with font hinting (see here for
the previous chapter
<a href="https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/kubuntu-users/2017-October/062489.html" title="https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/kubuntu-users/2017-October/062489.html">https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/kubuntu-users/2017-October/062489.html</a>).

Recap: I like crisp fonts and hate blurry as well as ragged ones, so I
use msttcorefont, arial (a font with good hinting) and disable aliasing
between 8 and 15 pt.

Some applications use the selected theme, some don't

Hello,

since I upgraded kubuntu to 18.10 one thing that annoys me is that a
couple of applications (specifically gimp and krita) use a dark theme,
regardless of the theme I selected (breeze).
I selected breeze everywhere I could: as desktop theme, colour scheme,
application style and gnome applications style (I'm not sure about those
names, I'm using a localized version of kde).
I could understand if it happened only for gtk applications, but firefox
and thunderbird show correctly, and krita is a kde application.
Bug or operator error?
If the latter, how do I correct it?

question about QA'ing 19.04

I'm in the middle of testing 19.04 and I found the list of mandatory tasks on iso.qa.ubuntu.com and when testing, say the live session, which is what I'm testing at the moment, do I need to actually need to perform a task with each of the programs such as opening a pdf file in okular, a photo with qwenview and/or send and receive emails with kontact/kmail? This is the first time I've realized there were actual tasks to do for QA other than just installing the iso and just using as normal and reporting bugs if and when they occur.

Odd things with trashcan

Hi Everybody.

I have a odd question. I have upgraded to KUbuntu 18.10 from 18.04 some
time ago. But there seems to have a odd bug. One can through the
trashcan in the trashcan. Is this something one should be able to do.
When I do this the trashcan vanish from the screen. But if one has
"Dolphin" open one can still see the trashcan. And one can drag the
trashcan from there to the screen. Is this a bug or is something that
should be there? I also have another question. This has with program to
do. I don't know if there is any program like a program I like.

Using USB Memory Stick to upgrade to 18.10

Hi Everybody

I would like to ask I have taken home ISO file for KUbuntu 18.10 and put
it on a USB Memory Stick. Can one use that to upgrade to KUbuntu 18.10
from KUbuntu 18.04? And how do one do that? Since everything that I have
read on forums doesn't work. Because when I did as the forum says I get
a messages that there is no upgrade. I have change on both Server from
Sweden  to the World and LTS to Normal Releases. But nothing seems to
upgrade it. I would rather not do a new installtion since that would
make me lose all data I have on my computer.

Problems with KUbuntu

Hi Everybody

I would like to ask how can one upgrade from KUbuntu 18.04.1 LTS to
KUbuntu 18.10? I have tested everything I have found on forums and tips.
But nothing seems to work. I have even taken home ISO file and put on a
USB memory stick. I wondering can one upgrade through a memory stick and
not lose everything one has? Since every time I tested what forum says I
get an answer there is no new version. I switch source from Sweden to
World and even told it to normal releases. But nothing I have tried
works. I also tried to update from KDE Plasma v.

Hitta Everybody

Hi Everybody

I know this a stupid question. I wondering does anybody know one can upgrade from 18.04 to 18.10 on KUbuntu? I havet tried every tip that I found on the Internet. But Terminal just tells there is no upgrade avilable. Usually this happen automatic. But this time it doesn't seem to be so.

Genesys and sane-genesys

are not in the repository or anywhere else that I've found for that
matter. It's not life or death if it doesn't work but would sure be nice.

Kubuntu 18.10 | NVIDIA & Nouveau drivers aren't working properly

Hi,

On my Lenovo Z40 laptop (Intel Core i7-4510U, 16GB RAM, GeForce 820M), both Nouveau and NVIDIA drivers aren't working. And I did double check if secure boot is disabled.

When I have nvidia-driver-396 and have the NVIDIA driver enabled, "PKCS#7 signature not signed with a trusted key" error keeps getting spammed in separate TTYs. In addition, nvidia-xconfig doesn't see the GPU and had to be manually entered in xorg.conf. Finally, the audio is choppy/laggy.

First off, sorry for potentially hitting some of your mailboxes more

Now on to the matter at hand: Google Code-In. This is a project Google
hosts where open source organizations participate, providing bite size
tasks and mentorship for 13-17 year olds from around the world. The
winners and their parents get to hang out with Google in San Francisco
for what is ultimately a really, really cool trip.

Ubuntu has participated in this for several years, with Canonical

I would like to request that the Cosmic packageset of Kubuntu is updated

Use of the money that we have in the bank

Hello all!

With the new council members I'd like to raise the topic about our funds.
Since there is not enough to pay a developer full or even part time I think
we should use it for items to sell like stickers, flash drives, pens, and
others. This can help us get more members who contribute by being able to
have the Kubuntu name out there. It will also help us pull in more funds to
help maybe get part time funds for a developer.

Under the 'others' subject we can also get some reading material together
to get word out about contributing and the project.

packagekit daemon crash

man, i've been having issues like crazy with this 'packagekit daemon' crash. at first, i thought it was my laptop, perhaps, so i used the same usb thumbdrive with the same copy of 18.04.1 on a different laptop and it still had the same crash so i'm thinking it's the actual iso itself, maybe. i downloaded a fresh copy from kubuntu.org and i noticed it was a bit larger than before, going from 1.7 GB to 1.8 GB, so perhaps that copy'll do better? hell, i even downloaded and attempted to install the daily live iso of 18.10 and i got the SAME crash.

touchpad issue

hey guys. What's with the touchpad coming back on after resuming from
suspend? I've got the settings to disable the touchpad when a mouse is
inserted/used, in this case with a USB dongle, and it still comes back
on after i resume from suspend. the only time it's off is when i first
getting booted up but my computer can't go into suspend if i want the
touchpad to remain off. what gives? Any solutions to this? I'll research
further until I hear from someone here.

Dolphin Cannot Find

Recently, when I try to find a file or folder with Dolphin, it instantly
responds with nothing found.

I tried using Kfind but it immediately pushes my system to 40% to 60% usage

Apt-cacher

Is anyone on here using apt-cacher?

There's a chronic problem where AC cannot bind to the port it wants to

I used to use AC about 3 years ago when I had the same problem and gave
it up.  Looks like I may have to give it up again.

It appears that AC will run the first time you install it.  And it did
that for me.  But after rebooting my server it always comes up with:

Unable to bind socket (port 3142)

I've googled this and people have had this problem since 2009, but I haven't found a solution yet.

Canonical's Point of Contact on KDE's Advisory Board.

Hi all,
I wish to announce that I am passing on the position of Canonical's
Point of Contact on KDE's Advisory Board to my colleagues:
- Alan Pope (popey) - <a href="mailto:alan. ... at canonical dot com">alan. ... at canonical dot com</a>
- Martin Wimpress (Wimpress/flexiondotorg) - <a href="mailto:martin. ... at canonical dot com">martin. ... at canonical dot com</a>

My responsibilities in Canonical have moved further from desktop and
KDE/Qt, and I found I had little time to contribute here.

Alan and Martin are in a far better suited to liaising with the KDE
community and had already picked up lots of the slack.

I hope you'll give them the same warm welcome as I received!
Thanks all
-Gerry
