Looks like qtcurve development has left our current packaging behind a bit,
with newer/active upstream at github/projects.kde.org , thanks to marcdeop
on irc clue'ing me in.
So I took a stab at unified packaging,
package review and feedback welcome.
(The first iteration doesn't include qt5 support yet, I couldn't get it to
build right on my oldish fedora box @ dayjob, we can easily add it later).
see attached screenshot
what cool idea to cut the left part when more tabs are open so that you
see just the domain and the user but no longer the machine name - don't
get me wrong but what cluttered mind developers appearently have to
implement such a nonsense
wit the next open tab the hostname completly is cutted
I'm running Fedora-23beta/KDE,
and I am unable to add apps to my panel.
This used to be possible by right-clicking on the K-button,
going to Alternatives, and switching to "A launcher based on cascading ...".
But this no longer seems to help.

Fedora 22 w/Plasma 5, all patches applied.
How do I set the size of the konsole window to be 80x25 when it opens,
regardless of how the last window was resized before closing? In my
current session profile under Terminal Size, I have Columns: 80 and
Rows: 25; in the main Konsole configuration (Settings/Configure
konsole), I have deselected "Use current window size on next startup".
But a new window opens at 88x34. Is this setting just being ignored?

"After the vintage season came the aftermath -- and Cenbe."
This morning's surprise after having to restart my system because
nouveau had locked up under my locked plasma 5 session (F22) with
gazillions of messages like:
kernel: nouveau E[ PFIFO][0000:01:00.0] PBDMA0: ACQUIRE
kernel: nouveau E[ PFIFO][0000:01:00.0] PBDMA0: ch 2 [Xorg] subc
0 mthd 0x001c data 0x00001004
(the nouveau lockups are no longer a surprise, unfortunately)
is that the icons of the launchers in my panel and task bar entries for
running programs have become very small.
I've been though many of the obvious menus in system settings changing
plausible setting, applying and logging out and in again but the icons
don't change size!
Can anyone advise how to increase the size of these icons please.
After providing the login name and password, the
splash screen replete with its progress bar appears.
If one watches it carefully, one sees that it is
segmented into six stages: the first happens almost
instantly, the next two almost as one, then the fourth
and, after a longer pause, the fifth, and...
Sometimes the sixth appears, sometimes it does not. In
both cases, the KDE desktop appears.
Has everything loaded okay, even though the sixth
stage was never reached before the appearance of the

daily upgrades ago, it did not, ie., the sixth stage
Just did a KDE kickstart install of F23_TC11 and I ended up with
kernel-debug-core/modules installed due to
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1192189 and kde-desktop bringing
in plasma-nm-l2tp by default (because it requires xl2tpd via NetworkManager-l2tp).
Some possible quick fixes seem to be:
- Do not have plasma-nm-l2tp in kde-desktop. This may be desirable in any
case to avoid bringing in kernel-modules-extra by default.
- Move kmod(l2tp_ppp.ko) to the core kernel package
- Include kernel-modules-extra in @kde-desktop
Personally I'm just not installing plasma-nm-l2tp as I don't need it, but
perhaps this will hit other users as well.

It's hard to know whether these two things are connected, but I'll
mention them together since they seem to have been correlated at least
I often find that after being logged into Plasma session for a few
days, the cursor starts to lag noticeably behind my wireless
(Bluetooth) mouse movement, to the extent that the mouse becomes quite
difficult to use. It's hard to determine just what causes this. At one
point I suspected either Chrome or Firefox, perhaps because some Web
them and it seemed to make no difference.
I have a second mouse (MS wireless connected via a USB dongle) and its
behaviour is always entirely normal, i.e. no lag. I've tried using
Gnome but haven't managed to reproduce this behaviour, though I also
haven't tried very hard.
When this problem cropped up just now, after several days of not
appearing, I checked "top" and found ksmserver taking 13% of CPU, far
above anything else. This is an 8-core Intel i7 with 16GB of RAM (and
root on an SSD).
I logged out of the session and logged into a console. ksmserver CPU
usage went up to 100% and stayed there. I rebooted and everything went
back to normal, i.e. no mouse lag and ksmserver taking no appreciable
Any ideas would be welcome.
no such problem with prior installed kernel 4.2rc8 or with 4.3rc5 and IceWM
