How to disable "Display events" in Digital Clock's Calendar systemwide?

Hi,

I am still using KDE4/Plasma4 desktop.

To prevent Akonadi process from being started, I would like to disable "Display events" in the Digital Clock's Calendar setting at system level.

According to <a href="https://userbase.kde.org/Akonadi" title="https://userbase.kde.org/Akonadi">https://userbase.kde.org/Akonadi</a>

* To ensure that Akonadi is not started, check that no applications require it at login.

krdc blue screen ?

Hi,

I am trying to use VNC via KRDC/KRFB to establish a remote desktop session.

For some users, it is working fine.

For some users, all I see is a solid blue screen in the KRDC window instead of the password prompt I expected.

We are using nfs for user home folder.

My user's .kde/share/config/krfbrc all look alike:

[Security]
allowUninvitedConnections=true
askOnConnect=false
uninvitedConnectionPassword=testpass

Please advise.

Thanks,
Zaiwen

KDE4 - Task Manager - not showing launcher icon?

Hi,

We are using KDE 4.10.4.

I have one question about the Task Manager widget (X-KDE-PluginInfo-Name=org.kde.plasma.taskmanager).

When I add the Task manager widget to my panel, any applications I run(actually our own application) will not show the application's icon we specified in its .desktop file.

Instead, it will just display the same system icon (X with a circle)..

I already checked all below:

--Make sure the name of the .desktop file matches what the application sets as WM_CLASS window.

--Make sure that what's set as WM_CLASS makes sense and isn't something generic (e.g.

KDE 4 - kdepim - korganizer - no google calendar?

Hi,

I am using KDE 4.10.5 with kdepim-4.10.5-6.el7.x86_64, which contains
korganizer.

In this version of korganizer (kdepim), it seems the configuration to
include Google calendar does not exist.

The instructions I found
https://www.linux.com/learn/tricks-using-desktop-integrated-calendars for
configuring the tool indicate that you should click settings->Configure
KOrganizer->General and then click on the calendars tab.

From there, click the add button, select Google calendars and tasks
from the list.

I don’t have “Google calendars and tasks” in my version.

Can you confirm if that
