The new KDE Theme is called Breeze, but there is no Breeze for GTK (yet?). The old KDE theme is called Oxygen. Close your GTK apps.

If that version of KDE has Network manager try opening network connections, go to the wireless tab and edit (or add) your wireless network info, making sure to check the box "available to all users." It won't ask for the wireless password again.

I have had screen edges that sometimes stops working, don't know whether your issue is related. For my problem, running the following command in the terminal usually fixes it: kwin --replace & It is important to include the &, otherwise the windows will crash when you close the terminal. See kwin --help on exactly what the command does.

Unfortunately Qt5 designers removed the package equivalent of qt4-qtconfig in Qt4. They leaved as well quite a big bug behind as Qt5 ignores the font-config of the system. There is then no way around to "correct" the font used by Qt5. To get some applications behave like the others on my desktop I had to recompile them with Qt4 whenever possible. Thus bug ...

Instead of reinstalling the system you could reinstall the KDE desktop environment. I'm not sure if it helps in this case though. But you may want to try reconfiguring it first by sudo dpkg-reconfigure kubuntu-desktop Reinstall it with this command: sudo apt-get install --reinstall kubuntu-desktop Only I think this leaves the configurations, so if it ...

I managed to temporarily fix the issue by changing the system language from American English to British English. I did it via the KDE System Settings > Locale > Languages dialog. Amusingly, it displayed an error message saying that replacing the current language was not permitted, but in practice it was since the new settings were applied when I hit the ...

In ubuntu, you can reserve space for your panels with xprop, using the _NET_WM_STRUT_PARTIAL property (the reserved space is called strut). The idea is to get the ID of your panel window with xwininfo, and feed it together with the desired coordinates into xprop -set. If this answer seems to work for you, you can check out my blogpost for a detailed how-to ...

Right-click on K, then go to "settings for K-Menu" and then check "sort by name"

Right-click on K, then Edit Applications, then expand the submenu of interest. Now (here's the nonobvious part) widen the window to show all the possible actions, one of which is Sort (with various kinds of sorting). If you don't widen the window you'll never see the Sort action.

You can use the cpulimit program to restrict virtuoso-t to a specific percentage of cpu. You'll probably need to install it from a repository, as I do not think it is installed by default. Works best if you put it into a shell script, which is run when KDE starts - something like: cpulimit -b -e virtuoso-t -l 10 (where 10 indicates program is restricted ...

I was recently bitten by this, too, and it appears to be a bug in imwheel that has to do with @Exclude. Apparently the code responsible for restoring key grab after an exclude is activated is never executed. There's a patch in the link above, and here as well. Apparently, the bug has been known since 2004 :D

Possible workaround: align the tops of your two monitors in the KDE Display Configuration. I have taskbars at the top and bottom of my primary monitor, and a secondary monitor with a higher vertical resolution than the primary. If the tops of my two monitors are aligned, then windows maximize properly. Otherwise, they maximize to the top of the screen, ...
