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
anybody except me which can't connect to facebookchat any longer on F19
with 4.11.1 while XMPP/Jabber in fact works because it happily connects
to our internal prosody server?
the facebook connection always says "connecting" in kopete while
netstat shows it *is* connected but refuse to talk for whatever
While I've had no end of grief w/kmail2 after it switched to akonadi and have
never been able to get search working, something else has popped up lately.
Over the last two or three months, kmail2 has gotten *PAINFULLY* slow at doing
just about anything. Click to switch from one message to another, and
sometimes I can wait as long as 90s before the UI updates. Don't even get the
"loading" screen, just waiting before it does anything.
Only thing I've seemed to find that even helps at all is to log out and log
back in again. Its then good for most of the day but by late afternoon things
are bogging down again and I just close it and go back to logging in directly
to my mail server and using "pine".
Nepomuk is running, and is configured for e-mail indexing. Akonadi is
running, but isn't complaining about any problems.
When the problem occurs, its *not* CPU bound, so I'm pretty sure that its not
the feeder/indexer hogging resources. Something, however, seems to be
blocking and holding kmail2 up.
Anyone got any suggestions?
It seems with today's updates, now it's almost impossible to connect to
On login, the network manager widget just says 'waiting for authentication'.
Which nothing seems to ask for, so it just sits.
opening the plasma, clicking on the desired access point, I get many cycles of
network manager crashing, and the panel apparently crashing and restarting.
After randomly screwing around, eventually it somehow connects.
I have not uploaded the crash dump as it's too large.
So it looks like a whole bunch of bugs here. Why is it 'waiting for
authentication'? This is not a new setup and has worked fine for years.
Of course, NM shouldn't be crashing. But that seems to me to be yet another
bug. It looks to me that nm crashed only after fiddling around, and after it
already was hung with 'waiting for auth...'.
Good day all,
I have recently changed Icon theme from Oxygen to H20 downloaded from "get
new stuff" however when i press preview in dolphin any folder that has
pictures inside, reverts back to the old Oxygen icon to show the previews
but it works ok in the folder view widget on the desktop
I'm not sure how to go about fixing this, or if it can be
I'm not sure when this started, but I have found that "snapping" windows
to the edges of my screens is not working properly. It seems to be
aligning the *contents* of the window with the edge, ignoring the width
of the window border. This is most noticeable when I try to align a
window at an "edge" between two screens; the window border "bleeds" over
onto the other screen.
Anyone else seeing this? (Fully updated Fedora 19, BTW.)

Sometimes there's nothing left to do but crash and burn...or die trying.
After a recent update to 4.11.1, my settings in Kmail were changed to
include detailed notifications of new mail messages. I previously had
notifications set completely off.
Of course, it was easy to reset this (after I found where to do it
again). But why would an update mess with my settings? (And what
other settings were changed?)
This seems like a very bad policy.

I recently experienced a seg-fault with kde 4.11 x86_64 installation from the
kde-repo repository. I have some kde*.i686 packages installed as well. I tried
to download and install debug symbols, but ran into multiple conflicts.
Please consider, if time permits the possibility of proper multi-lib support
in the kde-testing repo

I have been using old version of OS s fedora 15 and red hat 6.2.
Hdd partitions made by red hat seen by fedora 15 successfully, despite
using different usernames of OSs.
I have installed to try fedora 19 kde in an other machine.
The case was any hdd partition made by redhat 6.2(which was usable in
fedora15) is not accessible on fedora 19 machine.
And also, any hdd partition made by fedora 19 is not accessible by
redhat6.2 and fedora15.
What is the problem with ownership management of OS versions?
