Seems that the problem with kde-window-manager package in KDE 4.11:

Maybe there are some incomportables or bugs with new kde, or only packaging issue? - Sep 23 2013

ksuperkey

Various Plasma 5 Improvements by Mogger 88 comments

Thanks, I have find the name for this key - in my system Ubuntu 13.04 Lenovo FN button detected as XF86WakeUp.

But it is not want to work as modifier key, I can't bind any hotkey combination with it.
For example, when I do:
xmodmap -e "keycode 151 = Meta_L"

pressing FN send the Meta_L keypress, but when I try to press FN+S, it shows only FN keypress.

How can I solve this problem? Maybe I must convert this key to "modifier key type" via some command? - Jul 26 2013

I want to setup FN key on my Lenovo notebook. When I start ksuperkey -d, it shows:
Intercepted key event 2, key code 151
Intercepted key event 3, key code 151

But in ksuperkey I must setup key name, not code.
How I can get key name from code?
If you know solution, please update FAQ for your app.

Because Kubuntu remove native support for KDE file dialogs in Firefox (more info here: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=MTA3MjI ) many users searching the way to solve this problem and got KDE file dialogs back.
So will be good if anybody can provide ppa with kgk packages, because install from ppa is very easier that compiling from sources.
In launchpad there are already exist KGTK package team: https://launchpad.net/~kgtk/+archive/ppa but version is too old. Is there any problems to compile updated version for Kubuntu 12.04? - Jun 03 2012

fast user switch

Plasma 4 Extensions by micron 51 comments

Can you add option for user switching without locking desktop?
As I see, locking do automatically, so for implement this, after switching to user you can send the unlock command:

I do this for me via ugly hack the sources, but will be good to see this in core. - Nov 23 2011

As alternative, you can use kwallet with empty password, so it will not ask password at start every time. But this is big security hole.

Another variant is to use akonadi mail accounts, so plasmamailchecker connects directly to akonadi and don't need the password. - Jul 09 2011

I do not hurry, willing to wait as much as necessary, but I hope very much that you can do this functionality in this plasmoid, because it is very useful for me and there are no alternatives to your plasmoid, therefore I suffer very much without this ;)

I didn't see it in screenshots, therefore I wasn't think that it exists. I try to install and look.

> And as I understood, you want to plasmoid imported mail accounts from Akonadi?

No, not import the mailbox config. Much better is connect directly to akonadi mail messages database and catch events with new mail, because akonadi support IMAP-IDLE (something like push notifications) and it receive new messages without connecting to server and asking new mail with periodic time.

So, you don't need to initiate connections, you must only switch account to "online" in akonadi and wait "new mail" events. - Mar 25 2011

Very useful plasmoid for me. But I miss the feature to disable lock screen when switching user.

Will be good if plasmoid have the option for switching sessions without locking. Can you add this? - Feb 11 2011

Thank's for the hint, I find it!
Before I search in org.kde.* but didn't see it.

Can you give me some examples how to use it?

I find how I can show the text, but svg image don't want to show.
For example, I do:
$ qdbus org.kde.kded /modules/kosd showSvgOsd /usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/apps/wine.svg "" "hello world" 50

And kosd shows only "hello world" and 50% of progress bar, but no icon.

How I can show the icon?

And can I show only text or image without progress bar?

Can I show multiline text? - Jan 31 2011
