Upgrading to Qt 5.12 is fine, but does not seem to fix the issue straight away. In Konsole profile settings under the advanced tab, change "Line Spacing" to 1. This has fixed the issue with horizontal lines for me.

After much searching, I found the answer in a Debian bug post exchange: If the okular package is not installed, kile can not start and crashes on a segmentation fault. The solution was to run sudo apt-get install okular

My personal opinion, based on some reverse engineering I've just finished on this subject, is that, with all due respect, KDE developers did a big mess here. In a fit of oversimplification, the option you mention is no longer available. The global menu is now automatically enabled when you place a global menu applet in a panel or add the menu button to the ...

KDE neon's FAQ page has this: KDE neon does continuous deployment of the latest KDE software which means there are nearly always new versions of our software to update to. We recommend using Plasma Discover's updater which appears in your panel: If you prefer to use the command line you can use the pkcon command: pkcon refresh pkcon update ...

KDE Desktop Switching Your problem is underlaid with the "focused" window situation, nothing changed on the new version of KDE but new features have been added (i am referring to the changes done to the focus stealing feature) What's happening is when your window is activated, as it was not activated by an "active selection" it does not get the focus and ...

The following bash script launch app or activate its window if app is already running: #!/bin/bash C=`xdotool search --class $1 | tail -1` if [ -z "$C" ] then `$1 &` else xdotool windowactivate --sync $C fi And then use it on hotkey: ./launch.sh <some_app> for example: /path_to_script/launch.sh keepassx

The device is trying to pair with your computer via Bluetooth. Pairing is the security feature to allow communication between the two devices. Trust and authorize would allow the device to pair with your computer and would in the future automatically authorize pairing Authorize would pair the devices but you may have to select this option in the future ...

Use the noninteractive debconf frontend: export DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive apt install -y xfce4 This will prevent the packages from asking questions, and the defaults will be chosen.

The window switcher installation is broken, resources are missing It seems you downloaded some theme or custom task switcher that is not compatible with your current version. I had same problem and fixed it selecting a working theme, then restarting (or relogging), using following command : kwin_x11 --replace Hope it helps.

It looks like this isn't natively supported through configuration in KDE/Plasma, however, a forum post here suggests a way to accomplish what you're looking for by using the wmctrl tool in an autostart script to programatically set the desired virtual desktop. sudo apt-get install wmctrl Run wmctrl -d to list the available vistual desktops. In a 3x3 grid, ...

Check to see if ~/.xbindkeysrc exists and has a reference to Ctrl+F. Key binds in that file are independent from the window manager and desktop environment, and will take precedence.

You don't need to mess with about:config for that. Open up the hamburger menu (three horizontal lines) to the right of the URL bar and click on Customize. There's a checkbox at the bottom left labeled "Title Bar" that you can uncheck. Edit: In order get Firefox from Debian Unstable while still using the Stable repository for all of your other packages, add ...

[ 1712.621] (II) [drm] nouveau interface version: 1.3.1 [ 1712.621] (EE) Unknown chipset: NV118 The version of nouveau X11 driver in your Debian 9.x is too old to support your NVidia dGPU model. You might be able to proceed using the Intel iGPU only, if your hardware configuration allows that (i.e. the iGPU is physically wired to the displays/connectors ...

Operating System: Kubuntu 19.04 KDE Plasma Version: 5.15.5 KDE Frameworks Version: 5.57.0 Qt Version: 5.12.2 Kernel Version: 5.0.0-15-generic OS Type: 64-bit I've checked with Dolphin, Kate and Gwenview. I think the problem is with the ☰ button in your title bar. Its presence suppresses the appearance of the horizontal menu. Remove it by opening System ...

Why not just use the graphical user interface? If you haven't locked your widgets, click on ☰ normally found at the end of the Plasma panel, and then on More Settings. You'll now see an option to Remove Panel. If you have locked your widgets, ☰ won't be available in the panel. Click on a free space on your desktop and then press Alt+D followed by L to make ...

For an one-time application, you can right-click the window title bar, and select "More Actions > No Border". If you want a particular program's window to always be borderless, you could go to System Settings -> Window Management -> Window Rules, and define a rule that will automatically make that window borderless anytime the window is created.

Installing the kde-standard package is not what you would like to install in the first place as a user who wants to have fine grained control over the packages on your system. Given the large list of things that you do not want, I would recommend removing kde-standard and install plasma-kde-desktop. The latter is like a minimal kde. However, we can ...

it happened to me too. I returned to the buster: /etc/apt/sources.list: deb http://alcateia.ufscar.br/debian/ buster main non-free contrib So, I made this: sudo apt purge kde* plasma* tasksel* sudo apt autoremove --purge sudo apt install tasksel sudo apt install task-kde-desktop task-desktop task-print-server task-ssh-server I got back to buster ...

Dimming the display is part of the power management settings, no screen locker is implied, so you can disable the screen locker completely and still have you screen be dimmed after some inactivity.

For those who need answer. I have resolved it by force overwrite: sudo dpkg -i --force-overwrite <filename> In my case: sudo dpkg -i --force-overwrite /var/cache/apt/archives/software-properties-kde_0.96.24.32.7_all.deb and then successfully executed sudo apt install kubuntu-desktop

Create a folder $HOME/.local/share/wallpapers (or download a wallpaper from "Get New Wallpapers" in the dialog which will make that folder. Then copy or link files into $HOME/.local/share/wallpapers

As you may know, the alias alias -g v='"$(xclip -selection c -o)"' means that, when you invoke v, the shell tries to execute a command named as the content of the clipboard. This is what happens in your first code snippet. However, invoking v and observing its effects is misleading because the intended use for this global alias is to be an argument to ...

The shell itself can perform this substitution, avoiding the more expensive fork and exec of an external program. See "parameter expansion" in zshexpn(1) for details. % x=file:///etc/passswd; print ${x#file://} /etc/passswd So in your case perhaps something like % alias -g v='${$(xclip -selection c -o)#file://}' % print -l v /etc/passswd Note that v is a ...

I too use wmctrl but prefer to use something like: wmctrl -xa Konsole || konsole The idea being that if a window with Konsole in the WM_CLASS name exists (because of -x), bring it into focus. Otherwise, run the command konsole. -x may not always be needed but I leave it in to avoid issues with non-konsole windows having "konsole" in the filename. I've ...

I was recommended a program that solves this problem for me: wmctrl. wmctrl -a konsole This performs exactly the function that I was looking for.

For a managed, EWMH desktop window, the window manager is ultimately still in control and may do as it pleases. KDE has unfortunately been the most difficult for users to work with as it has some strange behavior regarding window placement, stacking order, and visibility for desktop windows (see issue #4). On the bright side, KWin has extensive options for ...

The other answer is a successful hack, and I upvoted, but I have found a better one for some versions of KDE, and also add the instruction to refresh plasmashell, which also needs to be done for the other answer: Edit a variable (setting), rather than code By design, here is the higher level place to actually edit the expireTimeout, which means you can ...

This isn't an answer, strictly speaking, but I didn't want it to get buried in the existing comment section: This appears like it would work: it adds a display setting that's listed by xrandr and then the new size is available in KDE's system settings... but when I select it in the system settings gui and click 'apply' it resets back to the previously ...

In systemsettings5, go to workspace->window management->task switcher. Here, under "Visualisation", try choosing something different from the drop-down (for example, I had the problem you describe when "Cover switch" was selected). Click Apply in the lower right corner. Then, bring up the run dialog (alt+f2 unless you changed the hotkey) and enter kwin_x11 --...
