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
Is it possible to install and setup Bluetooth under Fedora-15/KDE?
I gather kbluetooth (or kdebluetooth) no longer exists,
and bluez seems to be departing in favour of bluedevil,
which unfortunately appears to be completely undocumented.
Assuming KDE and Bluetooth are compatible,
is there a howto or tutorial explaining how
a Fedora laptop can communicate with a mobile phone through bluetooth?

This started recently - any idea what is causing this ? And how to fix it?

Why do the fonts in KDE keep shrinking over time? This is not just in
Fedora 15, but has affected Fedora in general for many years.
A few weeks ago, I was using font size 12. Then, 12 shrank, so I
increased the standard system font size to 13. Recently, it shrank
again, so last night I increased my system font size to 14.
Why does one continually have to choose a larger font size to maintain a
constant font size?
I'm using Wuala  secure online storage. One of its options is filesystem
integration. "With filesystem integration enabled, Wuala creates a virtual
harddisk drive to which your operating system can connect."
On Linux FUSE is used. The output of df -h gives:
javafs 1.0G 50M 975M 5% /home/martin/WualaDrive
What I experience is that scrolling and opening/entering directories in
Dolphin and Konqueror is rather slow.
I saw that there is a report in bugs.kde.org  where Dolphin gets slow when
using sshfs (FUSE).
I've issued "ls -al WualaDrive" on the command line (Konsole) which is fast.
The same for Nautilus in Gnome.
Did anyone else have seen this? Do I miss something?
I'm running a full updated Fedora 15. Dolphin Version 1.6.1, Using KDE
Development Platform 4.6.3
What's the hubub in $SUBJECT mean? speak english man!
Well, in particular, I'll be moving a new
build into f15's kde-testing repo shortly. As opposed to prior
plasma-nm builds in f15 that use some hacks/patches in nm-0.9 to be
backward compatible with nm-0.8 clients, these newer builds will use
nm-0.9 in native mode.
That's a lot of techno-gibberish, admittedly, but what it means is this
native nm-0.9 support is the future. Moving forward, we'd like to get a
native nm09 client into f15 as soon as possible, and that means we need
to test, test, test this sucker.
So, please go forth and do. Thank you.
I haven't been able to get a wireless network connection since the last
Fedora 15 NetworkManager update. As an added bonus, Plasma desktop
crashes when the wireless connection fails.
(OK, I apologize for doing my usual thing -- paying only cursory
attention to the content of the list until *my* setup breaks. I know
there are changes afoot in NetworkManager, et al., but I thought they
were all happening in -testing and -unstable.)
Fedora 15 (x86_64)
|abacus4>rpm -q NetworkManager
|abacus4>rpm -q kde-plasma-networkmanagement
I am using the standard kde-redhat repo, no -testing, no -unstable.
What do I have to do to get my wireless network working? For the time
being, I am stuck with switching to Gnome, which is not making me happy.
I've been out of the running for a bit so sorry if this has been asked
before. I seem to have a problem with the Oxygen Window Decorations.
Icons to minimize, maximize, close and help have gone missing (a few)
updates ago. I'm not exactly sure when they went AWOL. I have seen this on
at least 2 different Fedora 15 machines running KDE 4.6.4 (from kde-testing)
and one virtual Fedora 14 machine also running KDE 4.6.4.

Anyone else seen this too? And if I report it, which component do I need to
file it against?
