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
After the latest updates, saved session restore no longer restarts
Thunderbird and Firefox. Is anyone else seeing this?

I just pushed a new testing update out to bodhi on this and realized that I
have advised folks that copyq is available in the fedora repos.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with it here is a link to a recent
review article: http://goo.gl/1oMjHv
It requires qt5 and has remarkable set of options. The project is active
and updates are pushed in a timely manner.
The one criticism I've seen is that it is "too advanced" and people get
lost in the options. That really isn't the case. If you use the vanilla
setup, it works just like any other clipboard manager. The advantage is if
you want to do some neat things with your clipboard data, copyq will help
you do it easily. Of course, if you want to play around, you need to RTFM.
For those who like eye candy, the system area icon is animated and the
scissors will "cut" when you clip something for the clipboard.
i'm managing my ssh key password with the ssh-agent emulation using
gpg-agent which stopped working recently. When i ssh some machine the
Enter passphrase for key '/home/user/.ssh/id_rsa':
instead of pinentry-qt popping up asking for my password and i have to
retype the password every time.
/etc/kde/env/gpg-agent-startup.sh is started automatically on login and
here is my gpg-agent config file:
Anyone running into the same troubles? Some hint to alternatives would
also be appreciated.
All of a sudden, Kmail will not start. I get this error:
The Email program encountered a fatal error and will terminate now.
The error was:
Could not create collection sent-mail, resourceId: 8
In my system log, I see more details:
Jul 29 17:24:32 tfr akonadiserver: DB error: "Duplicate
entry '4-sent-mail' for key CollectionTable_parentAndNameIndex'"
Jul 29 17:24:32 tfr akonadiserver: Error text: "Duplicate

:1, :2, :3, :4, :5, :6, :7, :8, :9, :10, :11, :12, :13, :14)"
The system offers to report the problem and takes quite a bit of time
to upload the core dump and analyze it and then *fails* with this

(Now that's irritating.)
I used akonadiconsole to look at the database and there already is a
record in the collectionstable with a key of (4, 'sent-mail').
Anyone have a clue why akonadi wants to create another one?
Please excuse any formatting problems in this E-mail message. I had
to use Gmail to compose and send it since Kmail won't run!
Since upgrade to Plasma 5.7.1, I have a bunch of new issues:
- I am unable to assign a shortcut to my application launcher. It
simply is not saved any more. No related errors in .xsession-errors.
- I am unable to get my screens to go to standby mode. Changing power
settings does not help. Even setting standby manually with `xset` does
not work any more (radeonsi driver).
- Every second or so, 5 duplicate lines (10 lines total) are written
kde.systemtray: Wrong IconThemePath "/usr/share/pixmaps/pidgin/tray" :
too short or does not end with 'icons'
kde.systemtray: Wrong IconThemePath
: too short or does not end with 'icons'
All of these issues when upgrading KDE (even relatively minor updates
like 5.6 to 5.7) are certainly frustrating. It really seems like the
KDE and QT teams have serious QC issues.
Has anyone else noticed this...
As far as I can tell, everything is running fine... but I'm getting these
messages over and over and over again... just filling up my log...
kwin_x11: QXcbConnection: XCB error: 3 (BadWindow), sequence: 24419,

Am I alone in finding what I see on the screen when re-booting
very drab, and much inferior to what Fedora/KDE used to provide?
Is it possible to choose a more interesting non-default setup?
I find the slowly filling horizontal line under the K icon
particularly boring; it makes the Microsoft rotating circle
seem like an exciting entry into the Windows world.
In older versions of Fedora/KDE various icons used to appear in order,
showing what was happening at that moment during the re-boot.
I've always thought it was a selling-point of Linux
that it wasn't a black box,
one could see (if one wished) what is going on.
