I've reported this problem 2 years ago:
The problem is still present in F15 KDE Spin. ¿Could we please find some
kind of solution? Again, I'm willing to help in any way, but I think that
this problem must be priorized by the KDE SIG, especially since Anaconda
devs have stated that they will not fix the problem (see comment 6).
Kevin Kofler suggested to create a kdialog wrapper. Is it possible? I think
even I can help with that part of the solution.

Good day all,
Just wondering if this is just me or if anyone else experiences this, when I
click on the far left button or right click on a window title bar, the menu
which comes up, comes up in the top left corner of the screen.
No matter were the window is on the desktop it always appears at the top of
the screen, yet when I press Alt+F3 on the keyboard is shows in the right
I thought this might have gone away in 4.7 but its still there.
anyone else see this?
Its been along time.
I have a weird problem. Just out of curiosity, I finally logged into gnome in
Fedora 15 ( nice smart phone lol ). After logging back into kde, the panel on
the top of my screen was not at the top, but a bit lower than that. I dragged
it back up to the top and then logged off and back on. The panel once again
Can anyone else confirm this behavior?
This message has been scanned for viruses and
dangerous content by MailScanner, and is
believed to be clean.
can we please have back the popup-window for file-rename
for a bundle of reasons
* large screen -> but you do not see the entire filename inline
* in the past you moved the popup away and saw the old name
now you see only a small part of the filename, see never the whole
name and can not compare to the old one, this deagrades usability
another time for the reason it is beautiful at the first look
this was one of the many things because i loved KDE compared to
windows and what happens now - doing all the same :-(

I see the same thing. Not sure when it started though. I've not logged into Gnome, so I don't
think that has anything to do with it. Seems it started a few weeks back for me (I'm using the
kde-stable repo). I use an nVidia card with Twinview. If I resize my desktop to span from my
laptop to an external monitor, the panel fixes itself (if I don't manually move it prior to this).
Not sure which component is to blame.
When I leave the computer for a sufficient time to let the screen
saver kick in, a shake of the mouse reveals the basic login dialog
with no background. If I attempt to enter my password into the
field, no characters appear and the login fails. However, if I do
a Ctl-Alt-Bspace, X is restarted and the full background pic is
displayed along with the log in dialog, and it will accept

The kde-sig is seeking feedback on f16's plasma-desktop (and potentially
other containments) default layout.
In particular, prior to kde-4.7.x, the default was basically an empty
desktop with a sole folderview widget. Now in kde47, the default is
even emptier, without even folderview.
So, we were close to deciding simply putting a folderview back as
default, but I thought we could brainstorm for even better ideas. What
do you all think?
kde-settings currently has:
License: Public Domain
This made sense when all it contained was configuration settings such as
foo=false, which are clearly not a form of creative expression, but these
days kde-settings is growing some code snippets, e.g.:
* RPM dependency extractors
* possibly a Plasma initialization script
Those code snippets are probably copyrightable, and it is not legal for us
European contributors to just declare them Public Domain.
Therefore, I propose that we put kde-settings under the MIT License, in
particular this variant:
which is the default license for Code contributions to Fedora, and which is
effectively as permissive as Public Domain, but legally sound worldwide.
As a result, the License tag would change to:
In Fedora 16 kdeinit4 segfaults after the glibc (2.14.90-6) update. In dmesg I
see: "kdeinit4: segfault at b0 ip 00007f9e60ddf2f1 sp 00007fff95741730
error 4 in libc-2.14.90.so[7f9e60cb8000+1a5000]"
Downgrading glibc resolves the issue.
Who is to blame? glibc or kdelibs?
I've been looking for some time for a way (hopefully KDE)
of keeping an address-book/contact list on a server,
so that it can be accessed, and edited, from a laptop.
Presently I'm running OpenLDAP on my server,
but this is not entirely satisfactory.
I use KMail on my laptop,
but the interface with the OpenLDAP server
is not very good (to put it mildly).
The features I would like are:
1. There should be a simple web interface
for accessing and editing the contact list on the server.
2. It should also be possible, and relatively easy,
to access and edit the contact list through KMail/KAddressBook.
3. There should be a simple interface to mobile phones
to allow contacts to be added to, and copied from, the phone.
4. The information stored with each contact
should be as flexible as possible;
there might or might not be an email address,
and there might or might not be a phone number.
I'd be interested to learn how KDE experts
set up their address book(s)?
