I'd love to have a widget which could connect to my Nextcloud calendar. Is that at all possible or too much work?

Many thanks in advance! - Aug 19 2019

I noticed that you've got an Arch package but I cannot find it in the AUR!? Any plans of putting it in there?

Only reason to use amarok now is to listen to shoutcast streams *hint*

Seriously, it works a treat, is fast und does nearly (see above) everything I need.

Fantastic. - Feb 13 2011

Fancy Tasks

Plasma 4 Extensions by Emdek 570 comments


it worked fine for a while but as I switched my box on today I once again started with the default set.

That brings to mind: is there any way to manipulate the default?

Cheers and keep up the good work :) - Nov 15 2010
Small NVIDIA Sensor Theme

Plasma 4 Extensions by laudivan 4 comments

I installed it after choosing "install new widgets" from my task bar options but it doesn't show up anywhere.

Can I take it that this is not being maintained anymore and is not supported by KDE 4.5.2? - Oct 06 2010

Fancy Tasks

Plasma 4 Extensions by Emdek 570 comments

Thanks for your prompt reply! Okay, so I rebooted and it wiped the panel settings once again.

I then copied the backed up file from the previous day over but no joy - it merely remembered to centre and auto hide it but all apps are gone.

Hm, any ideas as to where I might look?

Cheers! - Sep 14 2010
Fancy Tasks

Plasma 4 Extensions by Emdek 570 comments


I'm on Arch 64 with state of the art vanilla KDE. Everything works fine, but on reboot my launchers in the panel are reset :(

I'm planning on a cheap workaround but would need to know where these settings are stored - could you advise? - Sep 12 2010

Fancy Tasks

Plasma 4 Extensions by Emdek 570 comments

Ah, cheers!

Interesting, I've got three different instances of fancy panel configuration in that file - there may be more, it is one hell of a long file...

Might just delete the lot and take it from there. - Feb 21 2010
Fancy Tasks

Plasma 4 Extensions by Emdek 570 comments


this is driving me crazy...

I put a nice list of apps together for my fancy panel like in OSX and it invariably resets itself to the default of konquerer, systemsettings and dolphin.

Which file stores that info so I can just restore it?

Many thanks in advance! - Feb 21 2010

When I open a DVD in the k9copy dialogue it attempts to read the entire DVD rather than just its structure. This is followed by a crash when both RAM and swap are full...

This does not happen on any other computer I have worked with but don't know where the fault could lie?

Any ideas out there? - Jan 21 2008

KGtk (Use KDE Dialogs in Gtk Apps)

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by CraigD 453 comments


I get an error when trying to call up the programme. However, my path appears to be correct and when I am in

# /usr/local/bin

I link

# ln -s /usr/bin/kgtk-wrapper gimp

Then, as user, I change to
$ /usr/local/bin

and call up gimp I get

$ /bin/bash: /lib/tls/i686/cmov/ version `GLIBC_2.4' not found (required by /usr/lib/kgtk/

Am I missing something incredibly obvious? I googled but no joy :( - Nov 12 2007

Is there anything else one has to tweak?

Security by trisz 41 comments


I'm running on Kubuntu 6.10, installed encfs and then Kencfs. Installation appeared to be OK, but on starting Kencfs I get the error message that "The fusermount utility is missing. Please install it before!"

I checked adept but cannot find anything remotely like it (installed all items with "fuse") and am not sure what to do next.

Any help out there? - Mar 10 2007

Education Apps by killerjoe 31 comments


I installed 2.1 successfully!

Unfortunately, the font is so small as to be barely readable and I cannot see any way to change it. Is this a qt problem?

Also, are there any keyboard commands to call up the programme from the systray or is it a "mouse only" job?

Once I've got it working properly I'd be willing to do a little screencast on how to configure and use it properly (in case you are interested).

Thanks a ton for the ubuntu link - at least 1.5 is working like a dream :)

As for qt - this is not at all obvious to me. Adept shows bits and pieces of qt4 and lots of qt3. I suppose the answer would therefore have to be "no".

But 1.5 will do for the time being. Thanks again. - Dec 13 2006

Thanks for getting back so quickly. Here you go:

No packages found matching kdeaddons-emulation_3.5.3-2_all.deb.

- Have you tried to download it again ?

yes, but no joy

- Is emuexec installable using dpkg -i ?

Education Apps by killerjoe 31 comments


until recently I was on Suse and an avid fan of qleo. Recently, however, I changed to Kubuntu and cannot for the life of me get it to install. Unfortunately the link for the ubuntu packages is not valid...

ingo@dicker:/downloads/qleo-0.2/src$ /usr/local/Trolltech/Qt-4.2.1/bin/qmake
bash: /usr/local/Trolltech/Qt-4.2.1/bin/qmake: No such file or directory

qt-4.2 does not seem to be in any repos.

Any help greatly appreciated...

great app, easy to install thanks to the ubuntu packages.

When I start a session, though, I get a terminal whereas I'd much rather record my desktop. Am I missing something stupid? Any help greatly appreciated. Will write a howto in return :)
