Not the most optimal solution, but mapping caps lock to another key, such as 'F22', with xmodmap allows KDE's custom shortcuts to capture caps lock. Then setxkbmap is used to disable the caps functionality: setxkbmap -option ctrl:nocaps xmodmap -e "keycode 66 = F22" This does not persist and I've tried throwing it in ~/.bash_profile, although setxkbmap ...

As far as I can tell this is due to the visualization of windows tiling to half of the screen at screen edges. Disable in settings -> desktop behaviour -> screen edges, uncheck "Tile windows by dragging them to the side of the screen".

In KDE5 use "kstart plasmashell" to restart the plasmashell as a service instead of plasmashell &. If you use it that way it 's run as an independed service not connected to the current terminal session (meaning you can close the terminal without the process getting terminated). TLDR: KDE5 (in Terminal): killall plasmashell kstart plasmashell

I think your display got ****ed up with the new installation of KDE.. What I would recommend is booting into Recovery mode using GRUB, and reverting to the last version, and setting display settings to original, also make sure your display manager is up to date. Anything else, just reply.

The only easy way of doing this in Linux right now is using a virtual machine to try out KDE on. There are hard ways, including editing all .desktop files, compiling KDE from scratch, or installing a separate distro, but for what you want a virtual machine would be the best approach.

What you are looking for is GTK theme settings which is used by GTK applications in KDE and other desktop environments (Unity, LXDE, ..): ~/.gtkrc-2.0 Source: Is there a way to stop KDE from overwriting my other WM settings?

I looked this up because I had an issue where I couldn't open any KDE settings menus, but I didn't really want to reboot or log out. I found that the best way to do it (in KDE 5 at least) is by using krunner (Alt+F2) to killall plasmashell then immediately afterwards, plasmashell. I tried doing it in a Konsole window, using killall plasmashell and then ...

Nothing worked. Then I noticed that when I switched the video output in my VLC setting from OpenGL to X11, the tearing went away but I started getting a lot of ...

The Above works in OpenSuSE 13.2 as well and appears to be the best answer for Plasma except there are .kde and .kde4 and .kde5 spaces for 13.2 and I should imagine others there could be the same. So 4. becomes: rm -rf .kde4/share/config/plasma-* As always I would recommend copying the three files found this way to an ../old directory first. Also I ...

Linux Mint = Ubuntu (core, byte for byte) + mint-meta-core + one or several of mint-meta-mate mint-meta-cinnamon mint-meta-kde mint-meta-xfce mint-* So, in theory, if you uninstall all mint-* packages and purge, you get an upgradable core Ubuntu. But that's in theory. The leitmotif of Mint being disguise, it cherishes runtime patches. And that cannot be ...

As Mirto already pointed out this was a bug in versions <= 1.0.26 To fix this manually you can run sudo sed -e 's/\(self.list_files_view_model.removeColumns( 3, 2 )\)/#\1/g' -i /usr/share/backintime/kde4/app.py Disclaimer: I'm member of BIT-Dev Team

Ok, solved it. After installing pavucontrol sudo apt-get install pavucontrol the list of output devices showed me that my current HDMI output device was unplugged. Switching to the Configuration tab in pavucontrol allowed me to select the only digital output device that the system said was plugged in. After selecting that one, everything worked like ...
