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?

With the new 4.10 I find that my only KDE panel has become translucent.
Given that I also have it set to Autohide, this is pretty pointless for
my usage, and frequently the underlying image makes it hard to make out
panel icons and text.
How can I turn off translucency for the panel? There in no option on the
Panel settings. Do I have to change the theme to get this to work the
way I want?
Got a "scare" today and thought I would pass it on in the event anyone happens on the same situation.
I did an update late last night to KDE 4.10. I had previously tested and found no problems. I logged out/in and checked emails and did some surfing but that was about it before heading to bed.
This AM I started doing more work with different apps and I found, to my horror, that when I minimized them they would not appear in the task bar. Brain started thinking, how can I rollback the update.....
The "problem" turned out to be in Task Manger Settings where I found the filter "Only show tasks from the current activity" checked. AFAIK, I'd never checked that.

I looking into linking my Google Account into KMail, Contacts and Calendar
- so I took a look at the Configuration of Akonadi PIM framework under
system settings. I had about thirty instances of the Personal Contacts
agent, 10 Notes Agents, you get the idea. I probably shouldn't have but I
deleted all the duplicates. Now I have the following:
Personal Calendar - Ready
akonadi_googlecontacts_resource_0 - Ready
Personal Contacts - Ready
akonadi_akonotes_resource_0 - Ready
akonadi_akonotes_resource_1 - Ready
akonadi_akonotes_resource_2 - Ready
Notes - Ready
Active Alarms - Ready
Archived Alarms - Ready
Alarm Templates - Ready
Default Address Book - No file Selected
Local Folders - Ready
My question is why all the duplicates, were they needed? Do I need three
akonotes_resources? I did do some google searches to try to figure what
was going on, but couldn't really find anything. Just trying to understand
this stuff a bit...
Thanks in advance for any enlightenment. ;-)
if you have tested the KDE (software compilation) 4.10.1 packages for Fedora
17 (no matter whether you got them directly from updates-testing or from
kde-testing, the packages are the same in both cases) and they worked well
for you, please give positive karma at:
(Please authenticate with a valid Fedora Account System (FAS) account if
possible, so that the karma point is actually counted.)
We need at least 2 karma points to be able to push the update!
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation,
PS: Yes, this karma system sucks, I've always said it. :-)
While testing 4.10/f17 I decided to try out the new lock screen.
The widget lock screen is indeed nice, but there's a major security issue:
An unauthenticated user can access the lock-screen setting and change the

What are the chances that this is not an upstream bug? (Low, I would
