Debian :: How To Install KDE4 On Sid And Not Plasma5

Jul 23, 2015

As usual when I want to install sid, I downloaded the "mini.iso" image and proceeded with the installation of sid, without problems. However, when rebooted I noticed SDDM was in place instead of KDM; I readly knew plasma5 was installed.

No messages appeared when I selected "KDE" from the installation process, nor there was a "plasma" name there. So can I install KDE4 desktop instead of plasma 5, using the mini.iso? (I don't like upgrades so telling me to upgrade from stable -> testing -> sid will be useless).

Debian Multimedia :: Segfault In Loading Plasma5

I'm having some trouble after the day 31 upgrade. Using the lightdm, kdm or sddm I'm unable to start a plasma session. Through dmesg I'm seeing that something is wrong with libxcb:

Code: Select all[ 3036.768102] drkonqi[5137]: segfault at 0 ip 00007fe39dce1a74 sp 00007ffce440bbb0 error 4 in[7fe39dcd7000+21000]

Ubuntu / Apple :: Debian Can Install Gnome / Can't Install KDE4

Feb 14, 2010

When I run it live, I see KDE4. When I install it off the same disk, it installs Gnome. I can't figure out how to install KDE4. I had no luck with apt-get install kde4 (E: Couldn't find package kde4), no luck with aptitude, no luck with Synaptic (The following packages have unresolved dependencis kdebase-runtime-bin-kde4).

Mar 15, 2011

I'm using debian squeeze in my netbook and I'm not familiarized with KDE4 (4.4, the one in squeeze) and I wanted to know: how can I create desktop shortcuts?the desktop shortcuts, are they files stored in some place, or are they all part of the plasmoiddesktop activity"? if so, how can I create a generic desktop shortcut with it's own command and icon?BTW, how can I save the "desktop activity" i currently have, so if I accidentaly click delete desktop activity in the menu I can have all my icons and wallpaper back?

Debian Configuration :: KDE4 - How To Create VPN Connection

Nov 4, 2010

Alright, I was playing with the VPN capabilities in KDE4 on Squeeze AMD64 on my personal laptop (see my signature) and found it very easy to create a VPN connection and connect, but that's it. I made a VPN tunnel to one of my client locations as a test, but could use rdesktop to get into the server. Then I realized I couldn't ping the server either. I also lost all ability to browse the web and everything while the VPN was up. Upon checking ifconfig as root, I saw that it created "ppp0" and hat it had pulled an IP from the client network, but all of my networking capabilities were gone. What gives? What is it that I am missing?

Debian :: KDE4 Clicking On A Link Never Opens A Web Browser?

Sep 13, 2010

I could use some input. I have just recently installed Squeeze and KDE4 as I had hoped that the kinks had been worked out. Anyway, here is the situation: If I click on a link in kmail or kopete (haven't tried other apps yet) the default web browser never opens. Okay, can deal with that but instead what happens is my screen is filled with notifications literally by the hundreds, that konqueror is being started. No window ever opens but the task-bar is then filled with tabs for konqueror. I could not get this to stop and had to kill X (as my settings are to save the state of running apps when logging off. Thus if I just log off over 100 instances of konqueror will be saved and restarted when I log back in). Some things that may be relevant: The box has a 2.3GHz processor and 512MB of RAM. According to mem there is only 12MB of free physical RAM when the system has been booted and logged into. Other things still work, other applications still start and close although be it slowly. Once X restarts and I log back in, if I manually run konqueror it starts but with an error message that a previous session has crashed and would I like to restore that session. I tell it no as I don't want the whole thing starting over. I can drag and drop links in to konqueror and things work as expected. Starting konqueror from a terminal works fine as does using the run box and any link directly to the program. I am not sure how to simulate me clicking on a link to have the program run from a terminal so I can look for error messages. I have tried to search the web for info but I have recieved absolutely ZERO useful hits in nearly 10 pages. If this is not due to my system running out of resources I am thinking it is a bug I need to report. However, at the moment, I have described to you all things the best I could and I doubt with out something more it won't do much good to report it as my other Squeeze installs on an 800MHz system with only 512MB of RAM don't have this problem even though they run slower than molasses in January left outside in Alaska.

In the mean time I have made it so the system messages don't keep filling my screen by disabling the pop-up notifications. This hasn't changed the fact that hundreds of instances of konqueror are trying to be opened though when I forget to first open konqueror and then drag a link into it. At the moment, this is a completely stock install using only the first DVD that is only a week old. Here is the DVD info: "Official Snapshot i386 DVD Binary-1 20100823-05:10"

Debian Installation :: KDE4 On Lenny: A Solution Might Have Been Found?

Feb 15, 2010

I've done some searches on here and can't seem to find anyone making any mention of this one site I found. Has anyone used the Debian Lenny KDE32 images from this site?[URL].. I downloaded it and it works GREAT! I think the solution for us poor Lenny holdouts might have been found. Especially those who have ati radeon cards. As background. I am running a Radeon 9000 pro agp card. I've been looking for SOME way to get KDE4 that works. Kubuntu, forget it. Mandriva was close but I'd miss apt too much. I was thinking of trying backports. But it seems these guys have already done the work. I downloaded their Lenny KDE32 image and burned it. Be aware, this is a DVD image, not a cd image. At 786megs it won't fit on a cd. But I put it on a dvd and it worked fine. Booted up to a nice clean running KDE4 on a lenny system. I still have some tinkering if I install it (blacklist pcspeaker for example, and get audio cd's to play) But here is my catch. I brought up the screensaver and chose my favorite: Solar winds. It a Gl screensaver, so 3d has to be working good.

Debian Configuration :: Squeeze Update Killed KDE4?

May 17, 2010

I updated today and naturally removed the old nVidia driver, compiled it again after a reboot, and then rebooted again for good measure. I can log into KDE4, but all I get is a cursor and a solid black background. I deleted the ~/.kde, ~/.local, and quite a few other directories from my normal user account using the shell so KDE would reconfigure my settings when I logged in again, but it's the same problem. I went into ~/.kde/share/config/kwinrc and added the "Compositing" section with "Enabled=false" to rule out compositing. Now when I log into the system I get the default KDE4 wallpaper and a mouse cursor, but nothing else. I believe the latest update broke KDE4, or am I missing something? I have recreated my xorg.conf as well, and only set it to use the nVidia driver. So what can I do now?

Debian Multimedia :: Unresponsive Desktop In KDE4 With K3b - Squeeze

Aug 23, 2010

I'm running Squeeze with KDE 4.4.5 in my desktop. Everything seems to be fine, except for some unresponsiveness that is really annoying. The main problem (but this also reflects on other uses, though in a less intense manner) is when K3b is burning or erasing anything (including CD-R and CD-RW). The whole system becomes unusable. Not even a Konsole window can return from a "aptitude search something" query.

I have a Intel i7 920 system with 6GB RAM and two 1.5TB disks. I use an AMD Radeon 4890 video card with their proprietary drivers (at least for now it is the only option). I also have an extra Audigy sound card. I thought that such a system would be enough to have a good desktop experience while multitasking. What might be wrong?

Debian Multimedia :: Squeeze KDE4 Flickering Screen

Dec 22, 2010

I updated my system as usually. Sadly since then my screen flickers every 10 (or so) seconds. It turns black for like 10ms and then back to whatever it showed before. This behavior occurs after some uptime. Haven't measured the flicker-free time span yet but I guess it starts after 15 to 30 minutes.I'm using a up-to-date Squeeze with KDE4 an the nvidia-driver for me GeForceGo. Interesting thing is: It does not flicker while using fluxbox using same xserver.

Debian Multimedia :: Update Manager In KDE4 (Solved)?

Jan 8, 2011

So far I have just used the CLI to upgrade KDE, and I get notified of upgrades once a day, where a popup shows when new upgrades are available. However, when I push the "install upgrades" button, nothing happens. In Gnome, all I had to do was click the update notifier and click install. I am pretty confident the same is posible in KDE4. I have searched the web trying to find a solution, but I can't find anything. I am probably missing some packages. Can someone help me configure:

1. Update intervals for the KDE update manager, and
2. GUI updates for the KDE4 desktop.

Debian Multimedia :: KDE4 Plasma Network Management Not Connecting?

Nov 12, 2010

Got a problem with the plasma network management widget. Let's say I connect to a wireless network at my office called "Network A". I then go home and try connecting to my wireless network, "Network B". Assume each has WEP encryption. When I click on my home network, the wallet-manager pops up first. I enter my password. I then see that instead of adding a new network, it has "Network A" selected for editing. This happens every single time. What is going on here? I don't want a bunch of posts naming WICD either. I want to use the plasma widget because I like it. So what's up with it overwriting other network connections when you try adding a new one?

Debian Multimedia :: Kde4: X Stopped Working - How To Make It To Work

Mar 10, 2011

There seems to be something that has changed in the newest stable Debian - I chose kde4 as my default desktop at installation, and it worked fine. Then I went and changed some options in both /var/run/kdm/kdmrc and /etc/kde4/kdm/kdmrc, something I have done many times before without problems.

However, when I tried to restart kdm with /etc/init.d/kdm, things didn't come up - no X, no kdm. When I rebooted the machine everything seemed fine, so I thought the problem was solved; but this morning I wanted to change something else - I don't want kdm to remember the last user, and I don't want to see a list of users either. Now dkm and X fail even when I reboot; I also find that /var/run/kdm/kdmrc has disappeared - I am certain I didn't remove it.

The strange thing, when I try /etc/init.d/kdm, I can kdm hanging around all alone in the process list, but no X or greeter. So what is going on - what should I have done instead? And can I repair it? I can of course reinstall the system, but I hate to think that we can't manage better in Linux.

OpenSUSE Install :: KDM: Cannot Apply New Theme On Kde4.4?

Feb 23, 2011

I installed suse kde 4.4 on a new machine using a cd made with suse studio.

I decided to change the login theme. I went into the login manager, downloaded, selected, and applied a new theme. Restarted. Nothing changed. I still had the same old theme pre-installed via suse studio.

I thought it could be a bug with that particular theme. So I downloaded another theme through the login manager. I selected it, and clicked apply. Restarted.... nothing changed...still the old theme.

I thoroughly searched every option in login manager, thinking that I missed a simple setting. Tried everything I could think of. Still same old theme.

So... I decided to delete the theme pre-installed via suse-studio using login manager. Went to the login screen. It changed! But it wasn't the theme I applied. It was a simple theme-less login screen.

Went back to the login manager. I can change the background pic manually, but I can't install any theme!
