I don't know of a whitelist, but based on my experience in the past with similar types of situations, if you can't find a whitelist, I would copy all of your config files to a different directory, such as old_config. Then, when you start an application and it isn't configured the way you like, copy the file for just that application from old_config to the ...

Try This before shaking ur computers Nervous system!! To get KDE to display GTK apps well, you really need the ~/.gtkrc-2.0-kde4 theming that kubuntu-default-settings adds. Installing this will likely change your bootup logo to Kubuntu's though, so expect that. (You will obviously need kcm-gtk as well.) You get all those packages when you install Kubuntu, ...

Normally, this might just be a problem of the original font file. You can re-download the font family from this direct link: http://font.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu-font-family-0.80.zip and then from there just re-install the entire font family. This shouldn't take more than 2 minutes combined. If this still doesn't work, leave a message in the comments

Nothing hard to fix this problem. There might be some upgrades failed to install or failed on half way progress. So you might want to upgrade your KDE or install it again to fix this problem. It happened to me when I used to upgrade font packages with kde file manager.

Marble Touch shouldn't be packaged on the Desktop - the target device for this application is the Nokia N9 cellphone :-) . Please use Marble or Marble-Qt instead - on the terminal it should be accessible either via "marble" (KDE version) or "marble-qt" (Qt-Only version without KDE dependencies).

Based on the information available in your question this can be a very broad range of things. I am going to list the ones that come to mind! You have selected a custom system font file that does not adhere to standards. Solution: revert to the default system font or find another without bugs. The font file is corrupt. This is not likely since you say it ...

It is impossible to turn off activities. You are already using activities if you are using KDE Plasma. Your desktop, or virtual desktops, are an activity. By adding a new activity, you are creating another group of virtual desktops, just like the one you are now using. The global settings, like how many desktops there are in a group, carry over from one ...

Install it by: sudo apt-get remove gnome-screensaver sudo apt-get install xscreensaver xscreensaver-data* xscreensaver-gl* You can configure it with xscreensaver-demo.

The best I have been able to accomplish is removing them from the panel so that I don't get the notion to play with them anymore. I like the idea, but every time I try to set them up differently, I end up losing most or all of my settings from my original desktop. I'm sure it's my fault, but it should be harder to screw things up that badly. Just add more ...

I had the same problem. Searching the web i found a solution. Since "A regression in KDE 4.14 prevents these applications from working fine out of the box outside of KDE" you have to install: kdelibs-bin kdelibs5-data kdelibs5-plugins That will prevent okular to report No ksycoca4 database available! and other KDE related errors. For the standard icon ...

Use kaffeinety. It is an application that prevents power management actions from triggering when certain applications are running. You can then go into system settings -> power management and add the application to the list.

Okay so brightness works now. With audio it took me a while to figure it out but basically you need to install pulseaudio FIRST, reboot, and then install KMix and reboot again. Now it works :D

Go to the KDE settings ("configure desktop" or "system settings") -> Shortcuts and Gestures -> Global Keyboard Shorcuts. For volume, go to KMix, click "Volume Down" next to "Decrease Volume", click the box next to "Custom", then hit "Volume Down" button on your chromebook. Do the same with "Mute" and "Volume Up". For brightness, go to "KDE Daemon". Set ...

I rather liked the simplicity of the following remove: apt-get remove kdelibs-bin kdelibs5-data Credit to craigevil on the Debian Forums. (http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=102884) The thing here is that, by focusing on the two packages on which virtually all of KDE is built, the rest of KDE gets uninstalled too, as they depend on the ...
