nntp (aka, usenet) client in kde?
by Gene Smith
I currently use t-bird with an nntp account pointing to gmane to read
this list and sereral others. Does kde have an nntp client program of
any sort? I don't see it as a possible new account type in kmail. Also,
search with kpackagekit yields nothing with "usenet" or "nntp" that is

by Martin Kho
First, Fedora 15 KDE is again really great! Thanks for this.
I've just one - minor - issue. Plasma-desktop raises to 100% cpu usage when I
put widgets like CPU monitor, Network monitor or Hardware Temperature monitor
on the desktop.
Anyone else sees this?

KPackagekit is behaving oddly in system tray
KPackagekit service is randomly (every 1-3 minutes)
popping/querying in/out of my system tray. I set it to check for
updates daily. Seems really odd. I am running F15/4.6.3. Ideas?

I've just installed F15 on a system previously running F11. The video
card is a nVidia GeForce GT 230 and I was running the nVidia drivers.
Now, I'm trying out the nouveau driver.
It seems to mostly work. But, there is an issue which may be due to
When I mouse over an application on the panel a box pops up with the
name of the application and for a second a square within the box shows
the running window.
Also, if I move my mouse to the upper left corner, all desktops should
be displayed. However, they are a bunch of grey blobs.
Is anyone seeing this?

activities and icons
by Ed Greshko
I run 6 "Virtual Desktops" and in the "Pager Settings" I have "Different
Widgets for each Desktop" checked. Now, I like to create "Link to
applications" (a.k.a. icons?) of different sorts on each desktop. As it
is, whenever I create a link on a given desktop it appears on all desktops.
I have yet to find a way to have a different set of icons on each
workspace. I that somehow possible?
