I just found out that Kate was not installed by default on Fedora 16
even though I had selected 'KDE Software Development' during
installation. KDevelop is installed, but not Kate.
Was this a concious decision or a mistake?
Apologies on starting a new thread..
I have been running some tests this afternoon after rebuilding/updating
soprano to 2.7.57-1 from F18 src.rpm
Now the Kmail crash and others mentioned in bug #301453 on kde.bugs are not
reproducible anymore here with nepomuk enabled. Gwenview being the other
severe bug rendering it unusable with nepomuk enabled.
I will continue testing but it does look promising :)

I want KDE to handle the power button press event on my desktop. I
have selected the appropriate option in System Settings > Power
management > Button events handling > 'when power button is pressed'.
But it doesn't seem to have any effect on my Fedora 17 x86_64 system.
When I press the power button, the system immediately powers down. I
don't think KDE isn't even involved in the process. I have not tried to
do the experiment with any unsaved files open. But I have a feeling that
I'll lose them.
Searching the internet, I found these reports for XFCE:
is to edit /etc/acpi/events/power_button and (apparently) set it have no
action. I have not tried it though. Wanted to check if there's anything
Does anyone else have this problem?
Thanks for the update. All went smoothly, except:
1. could not update kdegames due to missing dependency
2. wanted to test kmail with nepomuk enabled, but I cannot find anywhere in
systemsettings where I can enable it (it seems that the control module is missing)
I tried to yum -update from the kde-testing repo and I got most of the
packages not updating due to broken dependencies. I tried to figure out what
the problem was from the yum output but I couldn't understand much.
Also, I don't get why some i686 packages are pulled (like pykde4) although I
have a 64-bit system. Note that the system does not try to update these
packages if kde-testing repo is disabled.
I have attached the yum output in case it is more enlightening to someone

Is there a way to specify the window size for my apps? OK, I know about
.xresources (at least, I did know about it 20 years ago). Is there a more
What I'd like is, open the app, size the window, and say right click on the
window decoration to tell kde I want to save that size setting.
I went through a session a couple hours ago and must have seen about 20
segfault 11's. I am not kidding, it's no exaggeration, I really needed to do
something important and I needed Kmail. I really needed it.
I lived with these constant crashes and in fact, I've probably avoided using
my client because of them, up until the moment, I have no choice. I won't
write up a bug report because I can't reliably repeat them.
I don't even have an idea about why I am writing this, I guess I am hoping for
a miracle. I want to keep using Kmail but I am near my wits end.
Any ideas on what could be causing Kmail to crash.. a lot?

I wonder if anyone has successfully installed Fedora-17 through a USB stick?
I tried two ways - with the DVD iso, and with the KDE Live CD iso -
on two machines, and met the same problem in all 4 cases:
only half-a-dozen modules were listed by lsmod,
and these did not include the ethernet or WiFi drivers.
I believe that this was due to a grub2 problem,
though I'm not sure about that.
In both cases lspci saw the hardware devices,
but they did not appear in /etc/udev/rules.d/ .
It's possible there was a problem with my USB stick,
though there was said to be a check in all cases.
(I had checksum-med both ISOs.)
I managed to install Fedora-17 on both machines
with netinstall.iso on a CD .
This went perfectly, after a couple of silly messages about floppies.

In general yes, but software always has bugs, and regressions do happen
