heather@heather-Inspiron-3543:~$ sudo apt-get install kmymoney

16.04 64 bit won't boot live session

Removing quiet splash, the last line that prints is
"Begin: Running /scripts/casper-bottom ... Connecting to plymouth:
Connection refused"
AMD quad core 3.2 gzh
4gigs RAM
AMD radeon HD 7700

Thank you

Often the tribulations and trials of the devs go unthanked. Please share
this story for the kubuntu devs in the 16.04 cycle.

I lost my father on thursday. on sunday I was trying to go on with life and
upgraded one of our many trusty lts to 16.04 lts. It went completely
flawless. no errors no hickups. You guys (and gals) did a fantastic release
(IMO) and I want to thank you. That for those few minutes in time my mind
was occupied on the upgrade, and relief that all had gone well.

Thank you.

kwin broken in 15.10?

Just updated my 15.10 today, autologin went straight to black screen. X is
running, kwin is running but seems to not be able to display anything.

restarted and command line removed my autologin. got to login screen and
selected failsafe.

failsafe login restarts kwin and put's me back to login screen.

login in with plasma session gives the black screen with large X mouse icon.

any suggestions?

gwenview 15.08.0 kipi-plugins

I've always used gwenview to bulk edit, and resize many pictures at once. I
believe in kde 4 this was achieved with kipi-plugins. As of right now i
have gwenveiw 15.08.0 and afaik the most recent kipi-plugins (terminal
says Version:
4:4.12.0-0ubuntu5).

Does anyone know if kipi-plugins will be ported to plasma 5 applications
and/or is there a plan for gwenview to do batch edits on it's own without a
plugin involved?

Thanks

kubuntu 15.10 right click kills dolphin

for the past several updates (am current up to date rtm) dolphin dies when

dolphin
QLayout: Attempting to add QLayout "" to PhononWidget "", which already has
a layout

QThread: Destroyed while thread is still running

on. Anyone else have this? Is there another email group i should be
contacting instead of this one?

thanks

chrome dolphin integration 15.04

Just installed a fresh 15.04 for sweetie, Fantastic guys, really.
On the 14.10 she had before I had figured out how to have google chrome use
dolphin as the file picker (you know, when you go to add a picture in
facebook and it brings up a file browser of it's own instead of dolphin.)
Dolphin is much cleaner, nicer, and has preview view so it's much easier
to find the image you want.
It seems like I did it in something like chrome://about or something like
that and I seem to remember xdg something.

15.04 kwallet

Have one machine fully updated (as of 4/21) and can't disable kwallet. When
loading kwallet to get to its options it locks up. We really dislike
kwallet, is there a way to disable it using the terminal?
Thanks

can no longer disable touchpad kubuntu utopic

On the developement version utopic of kubuntu I can no longer disable in any
way my touchpad. The hardware button on the laptop no longer works to
disable it, and in settings/input devices/touchpad there is no way to
disable it either by check box, or as a setting such as when typing. It
was there not long ago.
Am I missing something?
Is this a known bug?

Thank you

kubuntu 14.04 wants to install firefox

I have been using 14.04 kubuntu development version since it was ready for
testers. Even though I really liked firefox at one time I really don't like
it anymore and don't use it. I have never install firefox on this setup and
still have the Mozilla Firefox Browser Installer icon in
menu>applications>internet.

Not sure what has changed but suddenly doing a dist-upgrade wants to
install firefox. I don't want it unless it's a change the developers have
done to default to firefox.
