OpenSUSE :: Analog Clock Plasmoid Is Broken In Latest Update?

Feb 14, 2010

I received an update yesterday and now my analog clock plasmoid is no longer functional. It's strange too because when I change a setting in the plasmoid, it'll magically come to life. I ran plasma-desktop in terminal to catch an error output, but nothing came up.

Useful info:
Running KDE 4.4.0 release 223
Opensuse 11.2

Fedora :: Compiz Broken After Latest Update

Sep 1, 2011

I've just installed 100+meg of updates and rebooted only to find that when I login the desktop fails to boot. Opening a root-console, I killed Compiz which dropped me back to the login screen where I logged-in again with the desktop starting successfully. From there I disabled Compiz and have no problem starting the desktop now. But that's not really a solution.Even stranger, if I now try logging in with and older kernel version and with Compiz off - if I try enabling Compix now, the desktop just freezes - it also fails to complete loading the desktop. So both the current-kernel/Compiz seem to be linked to the problem in some way!Has anyone else experienced this, and is there a solution? I miss my desktop-effects!

Jul 29, 2011

After updating Squeeze (i386) on my Via C7 laptop with the Via Openchrome video driver vlc video ouput shows only alternating white/green grainy vertical bars.

OpenSUSE :: KDE 4.5.4 Update Broken Dependency

Dec 4, 2010

On my opensuse 11.2 pc, the Decmber 3rd KDE 4.5.4 update proceeded to install all updates except libkdecore4 (and maybe others). libkdecore4 now has a dependency on liblzma5 which is not available. The result is an all white desktop with boxes where the widgets should be.

I found this bug report: [url]

But I can't find liblzma5 in the repository that is listed in the 2nd posting.

I'm using KDE and after some update GStreamer seems to be broken. Firstly it was unable to play sound at all, and I've got around this by changing Phonon preferred engine to Xine. But Clementine is still unable to play with error message:

GStreamer could not create the element: volume. Please make sure that you have installed all necessary GStreamer plugins (e.g. OGG and MP3)

I've already read this and this topic, but none of the things, proposed to try, worked for me.

OpenSUSE :: Plasmoid Component Not Found Errors

Jan 26, 2010

I had to reload my openSuSE 11.1 and reloaded KDE 4.3.4 from KDE Repositories and did an unconditional update on KDE Core and Community to ensure I got all the current versions back.

I am now having an issue with at least two plasmoids that is regularly used. When I attempt to add them to the desktop, I get the message "component not found". This happens to at least these two, yasp and yawp for system status and weather. It may happen to others, I haven't tried.

They are both loaded and both are present in /usr/share/kde4/services. I removed them using YaST, then rebooted, then re-added them, then rebooted and still get the same result, component not found.

OpenSUSE :: Eye Dropper Color Chooser Plasmoid?

Oct 1, 2010

I'm just curious as to where I can find an Eye Dropper plasmoid for my KDE 4.4 Desktop. I'm pretty sure I had one installed and working a few weeks ago before I reinstalled, but I can't seem to find one anywhere.

So, do any of you have a link or anything to where I can find an Eye Dropper / Color Chooser plasmoid? It doesn't actually have to be a plasmoid, I just need one that isn't tied to a specific application.

OpenSUSE :: Yast2 Control Center Broken After Update?

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Use WPA2-Enterprise On KDE Plasmoid-NetworkManager

May 15, 2011

I had some difficulty getting Plasmoid to work on to connect to a WPA2-Enterprise Network. The Cert file is in DER format which is something like this "XXXX.cer" After I filed a bug report I got a respond to try the updated Plasmoid from this Repo:

Index of /repositories/KDE:/UpdatedApps/openSUSE_11.4 To use it you have to first install your certificate in openssl using terminal. First copy the certificate into the ssl directory (In OpenSUSE it is /etc/ssl/certs/)

1) sudo cp path_to_file /etc/ssl/certs/Then install it (If you don't do this it will fail) Source:

2)sudo ln -s filename_of_certificate `openssl x509 -hash -noout -in filename_of_certificate`.0

3)Then after that when using Plasmoid to connect check the box use system certificate.

It should work like it worked for me but I still think certificate handling needs a lot of improvement.Pointing the cert directly from plasmoid does not work.

OpenSUSE :: Unable To Find Where The RSSNow Plasmoid Stores The Feeds?

After digging around in vain in my local .kde4 I am unable to find where the RSSNow plasmoid stores the feeds. It apparently wants to keep them secret forever.

(Man - Plasmoids are okay, but the utter lack of documentation for them makes them far less useful than then could be.)

CentOS 5 :: Part Of VLC 0.9.9 Broken With The Latest RPMs From Dag

Mar 31, 2011

Aside from a few minor issues, I've been happy with VLC 0.9.9.

I recently did a yum update to get to Centos 5.5. I've got yum pointed to Dag.

Everything worked fine, until I restarted VLC 0.9.9.

In the update it looks like ffmpeg was updated to the 6.X branch, x264, and how vlc 0.9.9 was recompiled.

wait wait wait.. let me clarify, vlc 0.9.9 still works, but a key function in it that i use has broken.

I am able to do a yum downgrade on x264 and ffmpeg, but I am unable to downgrade VLC because it tells me there is no down grade path. How do I go about requesting the previous version of VLC be added back to Dags RMP site?

I spent sometime hacking on things the last 2 days, and was able to compile using the same ./configure options that were compiled from Dag with ffmpeg 5.2, and x264 and I get them to compile cleanly. VLC 0.9.9 source compiles and the errors I'm hitting go away.

I don't think the ffmpeg 6.X rmp is broken, i just think its to new for vlc 0.9.9 and breaks certain functionality.
