OpenSUSE :: Add Plasmoids That Installed To Desktop?

Sep 22, 2010

I just recently configured my cmake and system to finally be able to cmake && make && make install stuff. I did it specifically for the Smooth-Tasks plasmoid. Everything went smoothly on the install, and it appears that everything went the way it should.

Now, my problem is that it does not display in my Widgets window when I click "Add Widgets..." How do I get my self-installed Plasmoid to appear on this list, or at least be useable on my desktop?

I'm on openSuse 11.3 using KDE 4.4 btw.

OpenSUSE :: KDE Erased Plasmoids On Desktop?

Oct 20, 2010

I've just logged in to the desktop and I can't see my old desktop background picture and the plasmoids which were on it (clock, folder view). As far as I can tell nothing in my system has changed.

I'm using KDE 4.5.2 version 9 and been using it since it was released in the KDE stable repo. My system is openSUSE 11.3 upgraded from 11.2 32 bit. I don't have any other non standard repositories except for the KDE stable repo.

OpenSUSE :: Missing Plasmoids In KDE 4.6.5?

Jul 19, 2011

After upgrading to the above, I find that some plasmoids are missing: RSS Now, Dictionary, Calculator (of the ones I use). The most important one for me is RSS Now, indeed there is no RSS plasmoid at all offered anymore. Downloading new plasmoids doesn't offer anything, and I can't find it on kde-looks either. Has anyone else noticed this, and how I can get RSS Now and the other back?

OpenSUSE :: Two Plasmoids Broken - Cairo Dock Using Primitive Graphics?

Aug 29, 2011

so in an effort to install skype and enable my webcam, I installed a lot of packages and libraries, but after restarting my computer, cairo dock uses old graphics, and two of my plasmoids won't function. I think what happened is that I installed 32 bit packages when my computer is 64 bit; regardless, I think the best method is to restore my system to a couple of days ago.. but I've searched everywhere and I haven't gotten anything...

OpenSUSE :: Installed Ok And X Configured KDE Desktop With Default 1024x600?

Apr 1, 2010

I've had a go with a netbook and 11.2. Installed ok and X configured KDE desktop with default 1024x600.

Minor. Most apps on running fit between top and panel but then you run their menu item like 'settings' or 'prefs' and its window size is coming up >600 in height. Some allow a scrollbar on the right but for those not, the result is not seeing the 'ok, apply, cancel' buttons. I did find that changing certain font sizes under System Settings both up and down and re-logging in sorted that for most.

If you click the top-left icon on a window you get to the special window settings and can see and change the geometry. However, for some that didn't respond to the font change above and seem to be hardcoded geometry-wise for a 1024x768 minimum, the result is a "squashed" window. Certain button options seen in the normal window are not there or the items are overlayed on each other.

Specific is Okteta the hex editor.Major. I don't use a wheelscroll mouse on other pcs. This netbook has a trackpad with the rightside 7mm or so having a scroll facility. In editor or Firefox running a fingertip on it will scroll the pages which is nice instead of looking and clicking in the scrollbar.

What is NOT nice, I found, is that if the cursor arrow is over a desktop patch and my finger hits that 7mm part of the trackpad when I want to move the arrow, it results in switching between desktops. I wondered what the hell happened when the apps and console I had up disappeared then reappeared then.OK this is the wonderful KDE4 where you can do anything and customise as you like. Well no, not about this. Funnily enough it shows up in the KDE handbook help about being an option in the desktop numbers section but of course isn't there. A fallback entry from previous help version it seems.

I've seen, and have some to make of, the general KDE4 crits but this one's a real WTF. So desk users with a wheelmouse doing some critical reading of some file or webpage could have that rudely interrupted just because their hand moves inadvertently? OK, maybe I should direct at KDE people, but is this fixable in the supplied 11.2 KDE4 or later KDE4.x ?

Ubuntu :: KDE4 Plasmoids Won't Retain Position - Or Resize

May 23, 2010

Getting tired of gnome, I decided to switch to kde4. I finally understand how it works (the idea of plasmoids), but I'm having some pretty irritating issues with them.

Whenever I try to move my plasmoids to another part of the screen, or even try to resize them, they immediately snap back to their original position / size.

My first thought was a permission error on my ~/.kde directory, but a quick chown/chmod indicated this is not the case.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Install Linksys WUSB600n Dual-band USB Wireless-N Adapter Onto A Desktop System With 11.1 Installed

Apr 27, 2009

I'm trying to install a Linksys WUSB600n dual-band USB wireless-N adapter onto a desktop system with opensuse 11.1 installed; this system will be migrating to a back porch with no cabling access, hence the wireless solution. Everything works fine under Windows XP, but on Linux, not so much. Hardware info is as follows; there is no "Wireless LAN" entry, but there is a USB entry:

99: udi = '/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/usb_device_1737_71_noserial'
info.subsystem = 'usb_device'
usb_device.vendor = 'Linksys'
usb_device.bus_number = 1 (0x1)
linux.subsystem = 'usb'
usb_device.product = 'Dual-Band Wireless-N USB Network Adapter'
info.product = 'Dual-Band Wireless-N USB Network Adapter'

My husband has been using Ubuntu just about forever now. He just upgraded to the newest version but has been having problems. He tried to do a regular upgrade and after it installed his screen had wallpaper and that's it. No icons or task bar or anything. He decided to do a clean install to see if that would help, and it's still that way.

Server :: Installed Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop With No GUI

Jun 10, 2010

I'm a pretty much a linux newbie with some spare compy parts so I've decided to make a server to further my experience in the linux world. I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop (was easier than Server edition with no GUI). What I want is a file server to share movies / music with my friends at school, that we could remotely access from school. I would like to leave this server at home.

I have read a lot on the net but I have not found someone with the same situation as me so have not got far. This would probably involve a single user login which I would give all so it would be strictly read-only, while only 1 user (me) would have admin capabilities. Is this even possible? I would be willing to try Ubuntu 10.04 server if anyone thinks it would be easier.

Ubuntu :: Installed A Version With No Desktop, Best Way To Do These Tasks?

Mar 6, 2010

Ok so i have a IOn based PC that i use for only xbmc. I previously had a full ubuntu 9.11 install.

I had to reformat the drive but i could not get audio working. I gave the ION Optimized live CD a go and it worked with HDMI audio running perfectly. The thing is when i close xbmc i don't have a desktop, it just goes to command line.

I need to install lirc, copy some keymap files into my xbmc folder and then setup wireless. What would be the best way? Can it all be done through command line? Can i install a desktop environment?

Ubuntu :: Installed Kubuntu Desktop And No Shutdown Or Restart In KDE

May 11, 2010

I just recently installed Kubuntu desktop onto Ubuntu and I don't have any shutdown or restart options shown in KDE, but they show up in Gnome. I initially installed Kubuntu using GDM instead of KDM and switched to KDM when I saw that my Gnome taskbars overlayed my KDE taskbars. To switch from GDM to KDM I used the following command:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm

After enabling KDM the terminal suggested a command to configure KDM, however I can't remember the command. I ran it and I got a message that KDM was already configured.

Debian Multimedia :: Volume Box In Middle Of Screen After Installed KDE Desktop / Fix It?

Mar 10, 2010

I initially installed Debian with the Gnome desktop. I recently installed the KDE desktop enviro to try it out, but when I log-in to it, a big grey box with a white horizontal volume level bar in it shows up in the middle of the screen, and you can't get rid of it. It is always on top, on top of any other open app or window. Trying to quit Kmix from the panel bar doesn't help, it doesn't even get rid of Kmix, it immediately reloads and pops back up in the bottom panel bar. Also, you can't adjust the volume with the Kmix icon, when you raise the volume lever, as soon as you let go, it goes back down to 0 level. I tried searching, but couldn't find anyone else who complained of the same problem. Using pkilll to kill Kmix didn't help either, it just reloads.

Fedora :: ATI Drivers Installed Successfully But KDE Won't Run Desktop Effects / Solve It?

Dec 8, 2010

I didn't post this thread in the hardware section because I got my ATI propitiatory drivers installed successfully and my problem seems to be with KDE. I'm trying to enable Desktop Effects for KDE.

The story is that ATI drivers installed correctly but when I go to "Application Launcher" => "System Settings" => "Desktop Effects" I can't enable Desktop effects and it has the following message:

"Desktop effects are not available on this system due to the following technical issues:
Required X extensions (XComposite and XDamage) are not available."

First of all I don't really know what this means. I have done some Googling around and have found a few places suggesting that I should enable the "Damage" and "Composite" extensions in my xorg.conf. I have done that, as you can see in the attached Xorg.conf file. It still doesn't work.
