folks have repeatedly asked about newer/featureful kde builds for rhel6
over the years, and I've put off mostly due to lack of interest and
time... until yesterday.
Making some good progress, so our mostly empty rhel6 kde-testing repo
should see some significant content showing up over the next week or so.
Warning: It'll be rough initially, we're at the "it builds! ship
it..." stages, so copious testing and feedback would be greatly appreciated.
My strategy so far is to minimize upgrading core el6 packages as much as
reasonably possible. We'll see how far that takes us.

Fantastic, just what I need and I really need it now. Please consider
packaging Kdevelop next. I am certainly going to test your packages and report
back as soon as I get back from Easter holidays.
Please let me know if you support in any way can help speed things up.
Keep up the good work!
I installed F18 last week, and now when I log in, I get a pop up message
box with the subject as the title. The top line then says "Plasma
requires an additional service for this operation". Then there is an
icon with "script engine" out to the side. Finally, at the bottom, it
says "The following service is required. Do you want to search for this
now?", and a Continue button and a Cancel button. When I click on the
Continue, it comes back with "Failed to search for Plasma service" as
the top line, and a big yellow triangle with "Could not find service in
any configured software source" There is a Close button that deletes
the message box. What is it looking for? What do I do to make it quit
coming up? The only other strange thing that I observe that might
possibly be connected is that when I try to start yumex, it fails with a

I was trying to configure a SIP (VOIP) account in telepathy (Accounts
module) and it kept failing. I tried Twinkle and it connected straight
away. So I looked at a packet capture and it turns out the sofiasip
connection was using my local home network IP to connect to the SIP
server on a vpn connection.
Once I ran the following command it connected straight away.
Is this expected behaviour? I checked for a KDE bug but could not find
one. Happy to create one if that's what needs to happen.
I'm starting to play around with Qt5 and QML2. Can you give me any hints
on how to set up a Qt5 environment on Fedora 18 (x86_64) that will allow
things to co-exist with the standard Qt 4.8 that is part of Fedora 18?
how to get rid of transparency in KDE 4.10 with the air theme?
WHAT are developers thinking by phyiscally hurting people with

switch to Oxygen? no, it is depressive dark
air is a perfect theme in the contect of colors
but the transparency of notifies and lancelot-starter makes
it really hard to work over many hours
Anyone seeing this error? It started after I upgraded my Fedora 17 to
KDEPIM 4.9.5 this morning and then continued after I upgraded to
Feodra 18 and KDEPIM/KMail 4.10.1-1. How do I fix this???
I *have* filed a bug report (Bug #317293 on bugs.kde.org) but haven't
heard anything back yet....'course it's only been this afternoon, but
I'm rarely jealous of windows users. When I make a presentation using my wide-
screen laptop, using a crappy projector that is limited to 1280x1024, the best I
can figure is to put the projector 'right of' and the laptop on the left,
leaving the laptop at it's native res and the projector at 1280x1024. Works,
but awkward - for one thing can't see the presentation on the laptop.
I noticed my colleague (windows 7?) did a sort of clone, where the projector got
his 1280x1024, while the laptop kept the native res, but the image was narrowed.
Hey, that's just what I need. I guess the world of X, kde, nvidia, etc doesn't
I am testing, for 7 days, a wireless keyboard with built-in
touchpad, so I have remove the old USB-wired mouse and keyboaard.
The keyboard is fine.
The touchpad is deathly slow.
I looked in system settings, input devices, touchpad, and see that
the module is greyed out, but the button is showing on. I am unable
to adjust any settings.
I rebooted, just to make sure that the system recognized the
presence of the new devices, but that is supposed to be plug and
play with usb anyway, isn’t?
How can I set the touchpad settings?
I updated Fedora 17 to KDE 4.10.1 this morning. It has basically fixed one
issue I have had for about 6 months where I always started in desktop 2.
After updating to 4.10, I am starting in desktop 1 again. The issue with
systray is that I like to have YAWP running, and now it overlaps about 80%
of the systray. This makes it very tricky to select an item from the systray.
Is anyone else seeing something like this, or have a fix for it? Is there
some way to run YAWP without putting it in the systray?
