KDE on Slackware

Patrick (the Slack maintainer) loves lean code and a lean distro. So, everything in slack is pretty damn lean. Nothing you don't really need is running. Also, everything is run as it's meant to by the ones writing the software. No tools made by Mandrake et al bloating it. This comes at a price of course. But believe it or not, you can actually make things run even faster! Just rebuild the QT and KDE packages with all the optimisations, and you'll earn another 10-20% speed....

WARNING: kmess & rh9

That's a rather 'ugly' way to do it. Wouldn't it have been a cleaner way to make a symlink to it? That way you don't have to worry about more diskusage, the fact that it will not get upgraded, should you wish to do so at some point, and that it's just so much nicer :lol:

soundcard functions strangely on RH9.0

Some cards do not properly support the 44000 Hz thingy. In the Control Center, under the sound options, you have the Sound System applet. Choose the Sound I/O tab and set the 'Use Custom sampling rate' to 48000... That -may- fix your problem...

Can't run Java Applets in Konqueror

I would think it -does- get pulled over the internet. I used to have a webpage which contained an applet to show a mirroring effect like rippling water below a picture. The clients surely wouldn't have the applet, however they -can- view the effect. Also, when you went to the url, you would see that the applet was mentioned as if it was being downloaded. Also, in the HTML code to include the applet, you have to specify where it is. And finally, you will find it in the cache of your browser. The ...

KDE Update 3.11... Konstruct

As far as I know, RedHat puts a lot of stuff in other directories than is standard for KDE. They also modify the sources heavily to cater for their... well.. ehrmm.. changes.. (don't want to start a flame war here :lol: ). You will have to check out your system to see where RedHat put it's stuff, and change the Konstruct script accordingly (or give it the parameters to deal with the different location). What has happened with you, in any case, is that your system has KDE already (in the RedHat f...

Ftp downloads

Of course. You can use an FTP client like ncftp, which has an option to get a whole tree in one go. For instance (in ncftp, after having connected to the server you want to download from):[code:1] get -R /pub/blah/stuff/*[/code:1] Or you can install a graphical FTP client such as KBear. I am sure that has a facility to download a whole directory in one go.

slow as molasses ...;-)

I hope you do realise that a lot of the sluggishness of KDE can be caused by other programs, etc. What distro are you using? Distributions like RedHat, SuSe and Mandrake are 'famous' for installing and starting up lots of services you don't really need. More 'handson' distros like Debian, Slackware, Gentoo and the like, have less problems with that. Just like with Windows, having a lot of stuff running in the background makes your 'real work' go a lot slower. Then the next item on the list. A lo...

Startup sound & keysyms

Connecting keystrokes to programs and whatnot can be done under Control Center/Regional & Accessibility/Keyboard Shortcuts. At least, I hope it's there for you too, since I use a recent CVS version of KDE :lol:

How to Install TrueType Fonts?

One of the problems, why you get so many 'conflicting' stories about how to install is because of the many different fontservers for X. If you stick to the latest versions of the various distros, you generally will end up with XFT2 (standard on X 4.3). RedHat has included various other fontservers, as far as I know. Since I am a slackie myself, I have had to resort to other ways again.... The strength of linux is also one of it's weaknesses. Because of the huge number of options for each and eve...

help me!!!!!!!

We could use some more information. What distribution are you using? What is the exact error message you get? Could you show us the output of ifconfig? If you give us this information, we can help you a lot better...

How do I add more fonts to Konsole?

The fonts you see in Konsole are the fixed width fonts (like courier). Arial, Verdana and the other fonts you mentioned are variable width fonts. They will look rather horrible when you use, for instance, Midnight Commander. You might be able to get the fonts to show, if you modify your font-server configuration files to fool X into thinking Arial and the others are monospace/fixed width.

Kmail no longer working.... *help*

I am not entirely familiar with Debian, so I might be way off, however... When you fire up apt-get update, do you get a log of what it updated? If so, you might want to check if the updates it installed are not from different KDE versions (like QT2 with KDE3, or something silly like that).

Certain webpages are blank om KOnqueror

The HTML handler of KDE is still being tweaked and toyed with. You might want to post this as a bug on the KDE site (don't have the URL ready, but I am sure you can find it ). Btw, it doesn't show here either, and I am using a reasonably recent CVS version.

Karamba theme - bofhbar

Quoted Original von RobbiK The script works perfectly when executed from the console. It is a good tip to try to update/get some Perl modules....I will try that before tearing all my hair off and jump out the window. Ehrmmm.. Blonde moment here: did you fix it now, or did it work already?

My kdemultimedia configure fails.....

I am assuming your system does not contain something like tcl-devel, or in any case, the headers and configuration files for tcl. What distro do you use? People using that distro might be able to point out which package you really need (I am a slackie myself, so I usually have it all, or not at all). Another thing you might want to try is using the --enable-tclk=no and/or --without-tclx switch for configure (you can also use --disable-tclk instead of the enable one).

Help moving a window, please!

Once you have managed to move the window, try rightclicking on the titlebar, and select 'save settings' (or something along those lines) from the popup menu. There should be something like that in any case. I am not home, and am now working on a laptop provided by the boss, with software from the vole :roll:, so I cannot check for you..

Karamba theme - bofhbar

It might be that you are missing certain perl modules that the perl script requires. What you might try is running the perl module by hand from a console. That should show you what goes wrong. When I installed some weather scripts for karamba, I never got output either. Turned out I was missing something like 5 or so modules.... :roll:

old question about transparent panel

Quoted Original von Kenneth I wish they could have real transparency like the KMenu for KDE apps like Konsole and Kopete instead of just replacing the background with the wallpaper. As far as I know, both ways are actually using 'pseudo' transparancy. X does not (yet?) allow for true transparancy. The way the pseudo transparancy is implemented in konsole and kopete, may be too complex or interfering with other functions in KMenu. I am not a programmer (well, I dabble, but don't claim to be able...

Antialiased fonts in Mandrake 9.0

It may depend on some stuff that you may have installed, since the AA functionality is based on a couple of things: The version of Xfree (versions before 4.3.0 use Xft1 and 4.3.0 and higher use Xft2) The version of Freetype2 (a library that may come with XFree, but can also be installed seperately) The way QT has been compiled, since it has to be able to find which version of Xft (1 or 2) and which version of Freetype2 has been installed)
