I'm trying to "KDE connect" my Fedora-20/KDE laptop
and my Samsung Galaxy S2 phone (Android version 4.1.2).
I've followed the instructions in
Every thing works fine, but at the final step (Pairing)
Launch KDE Connect on Android.
You should see the hostname of your KDE desktop listed
under "Not paired devices".
I do not see my desktop, or anything else, listed.
Wireshark shows that the phone sends an identifying packet,
but I don't see any evidence that the laptop sends anything.
I wonder if anyone has had better luck?

I see there are some updates for kde-workspace but notice the updates also
want to install nepomuk-core* and virtuoso-opensource. I thought nepomuk was
not not required now we have Baloo?
F20 - kde-4.13.0
Fedora 20 - (Heisenbug)
Registered Linux user number #342953
KDE 4.13 from kde-unstable works just fine here
only one iusse i faced: in knqueror the mousover
preview don't work - there is a spinning wheel
and nothing happens
that's a cool feature i'd love to come back :)
Background (to frame the quandry):
In KDE, when you go to a website using firefox, the master password window
appears on top of the main firefox window and it stays there, no matter
where the mouse pointer happens to be, and it waits until you enter a
password or cancel the password entry window. This is highly desirable.
However, when kmail is opened, the kwallet window briefly appears and then
immediately slides behind the kmail window, unless the mouse pointer
happens to be positioned directly over the newly appeared password entry
window. This is a real nuisance.
How can I get the first behaviour as a default behaviour for all appearing
password entry windows (or other windows that require input before the
application canbe used)?

Yes, kde-4.13.0 has been available in both rawhide and f20/kde-unstable
repos since this past weekend.

I'm not aware of the issue(s) involved here, can you please clarify or
provide more detail?

Eep! that will definitely be a deal-breaker as far as I'm concerned.
I installed Fedora 20 KDE on Thinkpad T420i and upgraded to the latest
which left the system unbootable. My initial impression was that this was
kernel related as kernel was upgraded from 3.11.10 to 3.13.9 and booting
into 3.11.10 was working fine.
I have tried this several times to replicate the issue.
In another try I did the same installed, upgraded and system was left
unbootable. This time I disabled kdm and logged into tty. System was
working fine. I installed i3 and used it for a while under 3.13.9 without
any problem. Then I decided to run KDE and it was working fine.
So in a nutshell install, upgrade and KDE won't boot but if you log in once
in tty or another window manager and then back into KDE and it would work
I filed a kernel bug report which might not be even valid anymore.
I have been using Fedora 20 KDE since the release and it had always worked
fine. I am not so sure about the current oddities.

Just checked as far as I can tell,
libxcb-1.10 is built only on rawhide (so far)

Ah, just noticed this post originated on Apr 04, and there have been
followup posts from you about since then, but I would still appreciate
more info about the libxcb thing.
I am running kde-4.13 (the apps I mean :-) ) and I have baloo running for a long time.
Where I can I find details about what baloo is doing, I read (in .xsession-error that baloo is failing on some files and so it is black listing them). The problem is that it always refers to a number.
My point/question is that I can not find the need feedback to know (as an example among others):
* how many files it needs to process to finish this stage?
* what are the file it fails and what can be done about it?
The first was available with nepomuk, and I must recognize that for a first iteration baloo is better behaved that nepomuk was most of the time. In any case baloo is taking a long time, and in my laptop it is I/O bounded while most of the time it does not clogs the cpu to 100% but the disk access led is permanently on.
