You have an invalid locale name set - there is no such thing as "en_DZ.UTF-8" - which makes your system fall back to the non-UTF-8 "C" locale. That's probably what's causing your problem. I'm not using Kubuntu myself, but you should open the GUI for the language settings. Somewhere there you have probably selected Algeria as the country. To get a valid ...

While you're waiting for this to become automatic, set network B to manual. You'll see that you have no network connection when you need it and connect and after a few (3 or so) frustrating moments of having forgotten to disconnect it'll become second nature to you and you'll wonder why you need the automatic connection in a few weeks time... ;)

It is still running because you didn't stop it. You shouldn't be starting daemons like this in your .profile. A normally installed jackd package will set itself up to be automatically started and stopped at the appropriate times via upstart.

That's because you didn't specify the protocol in the http_proxy value. As the output says: connection to 3128:80 (0.0.12.56) That's totally different from what you're trying to achieve I assume. It's interpreting example.myproxy as protocol, 3128 as IP address in decimal notation (0.0.12.56 in dotted form) and the default port 80. Try using this ...

Homerun can be used as a plasmoid (both on the panel and on the desktop), but is maily used as a desktop layout. So: Right click desktop Desktop settings Layout: Homerun Set the background and behaviour to whatever pleases you. Job done!

Like Rmano guessed I had to delete ~/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf which included (wrong) settings for the antialiasing of fonts. Any problematic program started after deleting that file, rendered the fonts right again.

It is much simpler with KDE 4: Just right click the desired target program's window titlebar Click Additional Actions Click Special settings for this program Select "Size and Position" tab (2nd tab from the left) Activate the checkbox "Minimized", select when to minimize on the dropdown field, select "yes" from the radiobutton. Done

Perhaps it's some accessibility setting meant as an aid to visually impaired people...

It seems that there are dependencies which are not removed. If you have not any private information to hide in your installed applications (i.e you do not mind revealing what applications you have installed), please give me your package list so that i could try and find out which application you have to remove. To do that, open terminal and type ls ...

First of all, really do check file permissions,may be something changed them. May be you tried to run KDE app with sudo? Anyway, chown -R <username> ~/.kde will not hurt. First try it without sudo, to see if there really were forbidden files.

I did have the same error message but with the mysql service : init: Failed to spawn mysql pre-start process: unable to granpt: No such file or directory It seems that it is caused by the /dev/pts not being mounted. In my case mounting /dev/pts with that command fixed the problem : mount devpts /dev/pts -t devpts Yet I don't have any expertise to tell ...
