The clean solution I do not use plasma, so I cannot look into what causes the issue. No need to explain that eliminating the cause would be the "cleanest" solution. If that seems impossible, and you do want to use this combination, you can however use the bandage below to make it work. The solution is an extremely "light" background script, keeping an eye ...

The solution posted at when I select a file in dolphin the name disappears worked for me. It is: Please change (with root-priviliges) a line in the following file: /usr/share/themes/Ambiance/gtk-2.0/gtkrc from selected_fg_color:#ffffff to selected_fg_color:#000000 (it is on the first line of this file) I used this setting but haven't ...

You have a laggy system because you have a lot of swap being used. You have around 512 MB Swap Being Used. You seem to have a Standard Spinning Hard Disk which means swapping will cause your System to Go Crazy Slow. I had the same issue with my laptop I did the below. 1) Reduce the Swappiness to 10.

Ok, apparently the systemsettings shipped by (X)Ubuntu 15.04 is for KDE 5. This means that control center modules for KDE 4 don't show up there. They can be loaded through the kcmshell4 command. In my case, it was kcmshell4 kcmnotify Then go to “Player settings” → “No audio output”. Silence.

I have given up on this. Tried everything imaginable. Kalarm which is also native to KDE runs great. It is easy to use and schedule and will run anything I can do in the Konsole.

I've disabled KDE Wallet (because it always asked my password after sync my google calendar with the KDE calendar app) changing the password to a blank password. KDE Wallet will ask you if you're sure cause it's no secure to save an empty password. It worked for me. Hope it helps.

I have the same option after upgrading to Kubuntu 15.04. Fixed by opening the file .local/share/applications/kde4-kate.desktop And changing the line: X-DBUS-StartupType=Multi to X-DBUS-StartupType=none Which fixed the error for me. Got the idea from this post and it seems to be working

Try adding vm.swappiness=0 to the end of /etc/sysctl.conf and reboot or set swappiness to zero. This way you will not hit disk swap until you run out of RAM.

By default, the package manager refuses to overwrite files that also appear in other installed packages (whether the file is actually there or not), which is a sane decision to not inadvertently corrupt packages. In your case, this means, that the packages are incompatible. I can see that one seems to come from a PPA, so you should write to the maintainer of ...

I recently solved a similar problem, see http://askubuntu.com/a/617395/368069 adapted to your questions the answer would be: Create a file /etc/pm/sleep.d/00-check-rsnapshot. In this file check if a rsnapshot currently is active. If yes, just abort the script using exit 1. That's it. Suspend will be aborted. Might work for shutdown, too.

You probably have "UTC=yes" on the file /etc/default/rcS. When you log in to KDE, it sets the KDE time to the correct local time, and changes the BIOS time to the UTC time. When you log in to Windows, it sets Windows time to the correct local time, and changes the BIOS time to the local time. For some reason, the first time you log in to KDE, having the ...

Just to expand on what was said earlier despite being pretty much a novice, I've just managed to change the backend to SQLite and it's got things working again.Akonadi has a GUI config that can be used to change the backend database type. What I did to switch top SQLite was: First install SQLite support with the command sudo apt-get install ...

Your choices are: sudo apt-get install libtiff5 for Ubuntu 14.04, 14.10 and 15.04. You can also install libtiff5 from the Ubuntu Software Center.

I had the same problem and just solved it. I already had LibQt* files inside the genymotion folder. Then I deleted all the libQt* files from the folder. Now it works like a charm. The genymotion development team has also said to delete these files.

There was no problem with libgnomeprint or the mixed repos. All I had to do was to remove/empty the .cache folder in my home directory. Don't know why, but it does the job. Now I have Stata and Plasma running (but mixed repos...)

This seems indeed to be Firefox related problem, but in KDE only. I had to change the gfx.color_management.mode in about:config Firefox section to 0 (it defaults to 2). It solved the colour issue although it might not have solved the source of the problem.

This is a known issue with Dolphin and ECDSA keys. OpenSSH in recent versions have moved to use ECDSA by default over RSA, and this works fine with most implementations that rely on OpenSSH's "known hosts" file. Dolphin's kio_sftp module uses libssh instead of OpenSSH's own libraries, and that library appears to not support ECDSA keys. The workaround is ...
