looking for backup software

For what's it's worth, nowadays I use rdiff-backup, which does a pretty good job. Incremental backup + accessing your files directly.

RE: Desktop icons apeared after new login.

Have the icons moved or copied from your home folder? In the first case, just move them back from ~/Desktop to ~. Otherwise just trash those desktop icons.

RE: Doesn't work numeric keypad

Perhaps your distro attached some special functions to your keys, when NumLock is off. It should act normal when the numlock is enabled.

Thanks for noticing. I've sent a message to the KDE sysadmin group.

Not svn:// but https:// should do it.

RE: KDE Login Manager

Most requests are not possible with KDM as far as I know. Maybe XDM is a better display manager for you, you could give it a try.

RE: Kontact Todo List no service available

You can try to run the command 'kbuildsycoca' as your own user from the command line. If that does not help, please run Kontact from a shell and see if there's some useful output.

RE: kdm problem

And have you done what was said in the error message? Look in the KDM log file (usually in /var/log/kdm.log) and see if there is anything special mentioned in it.

KDE configuration

Perhaps KIOSK is what you are looking for then.

RE: KDE configuration

It highly depends on what you want to change exactly. Every KDE app stores it's configuration in ~/.kde/share/config . There are command line interfaces to these files, called kreadconfig and kwriteconfig. But make sure that the application you want to tweak is not running while modifying it, otherwise chances are quite high your changes will be overwritten.

RE: Where is Kappfinder?

It's supposed to be in kdebase, but maybe you distro has split up the package into smaller components. In that case the package would've been called just 'kappfinder'. Also do a 'locate kappfinder' in your shell to confirm it is actually somewhere on your harddisk.

RE: Command Line Access to "Remote Places"

I think the kioclient command is what you're looking for?

RE: KOrganizer slidebar in month view wrong

Acutally, there are two buttons at the right/bottom part of a slider. The second button for scrolling to the right is being hidden by the date label. You could file a bug about this at after you've made sure that this bug does not already exist there.

RE: Kontact/Kmail Signature

This issue has been addressed in the meantime. However, I'm not sure if it is available in the official KDE modules, but it is available in the experimental KDE PIM branch in KDE SVN. See…_feature_branch for steps to install this branch.

RE: kde copies media files from cd to HardDrive when I watch/listen to them

Check the menu entries of those applications: noatun %U instead of noatun %F %U stands for URL while %F stands for files. But most KDE apps are capable of opening URLs these days.

RE: low volume

Maybe increase the volume switch on your speakers? Seriously: this seems to be off topic here and you may have more luck at a more general Linux forum, or your distro's forum. But be a bit more descriptive so that people are able to help you.

RE: mount a usb stick in kde?

Do you have the KDE Media Manager running? Check in the KDE Control Center -> KDE Components -> System Services.

RE: KDE Desktop crash at login

No configuration should be required for a piece of additional memory. I think the 256 MB module is hosed somehow. But a backtrace could be useful if you can generate one.
