Click the top left angle icon menu. There is add panel option there. Its called plasma widget if I am correct. You can manage panels from there. In your screenshot it is the icon with 3 horizontal lines. If this one does not have this option, move it, the other one might be below it.

It transpires that the screen locker can be controlled via the D-Bus RPC mechanism. You can send queries and commands via D-Bus using the qdbus command. The addressable methods are grouped into objects, which belong to services. Running qdbus prints out a list of services, and you can eyeball this list to find the screen locker service, which is org....

A workaround: go to Panel Settings, make the panel smaller (by dragging it) and maximize it again (there is a "maximize panel" button). After that, windows do not go beneath it anymore.

While viewing videos on my htpc, the screen would blank after 10 minutes with no keyboard/mouse input. Obviously not desirable behaviour for an htpc. Turning off screensavers and power saving did not have any effect. Eventually, my web searchs led me to believe this was caused by the xserver. I tested this by running the following: xset s off && ...

The bottleneck is your hard drive, on top of 16.04 just being slower to boot up. A 5400 RPM disk is the slowest out there. Even 7200 or 10k RPM drives will result in a boot time of 40-60 seconds with Ubuntu 16.04. I have a PC with triple RAID 0 array with 10k RPM drives, and my Kubuntu 16.04 takes about 15 seconds to boot. But my RAID array is very fast. ...

Application Launch Feedback KDE Help Center - Launch Feedback: Sometimes it is reassuring to know that your computer didn't just ignore your command, and something is happening behind the scenes. In this module you can configure visible feedback to help you know if you really hit that icon or not. The traditional way to indicate that your ...

"Separate screen focus" will make windows open on the screen that currently has "focus". If "Active screen follows mouse" is checked, then the screen with focus is the one that has the mouse cursor in it. Otherwise, the screen that has focus is the screen that has an active window in it, which may be the desktop. Behavior is the same when both "Separate ...

Change back to Breeze and then back again to Breeze Dark. If that doesn't fix it, go through every category and change them all to breeze dark (including color and icons)

With the a window labeled Calendar - Korganizer open click View and then Filter, the last line on the drop-down menu. I have it working with (x) Nofilter selected. Just in case it's relevant to the 'cure', before I discovered this, I also thought there being no filters present was the problem, and so, added a dummy with no rules. In the drop-down Menu, I ...

It sounds like KDE installed successfully, but the login manager is still defaulting to Unity. To load KDE, you'll need to manually select it in the login screen. First, log out. Then on the Ubuntu login screen, try clicking on the Ubuntu logo near your username. There should now be a list of installed desktop environments to choose from. Choose "KDE", log ...

I figured it out phewww - the system was basically useless! Instead of reporting what did not work (e.g. looking at x-0-greeter.log), I will try to summarize what worked. I assume not many people having this issue as it is caused by fingerprint-gui. $ sudo cat /var/log/lightdm/lightdm.log At some point I started comparing my (buggy) log to one in which ...

I think you can just type sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop , since you are using ubuntu 16.04, i think the command that you we're trying is been obsolete that it won't really work on the new release. please try! I'm also using ubuntu 16.04 LTS and successfully installed KDE on my desktop using that command.

The ECMConfig.cmake file is provided in Xenial by the extra-cmake-modules package, so you need to install that - either from your favorite package manager or via the command line sudo apt install extra-cmake-modules

The titles I mention are relevant to systemsettings5, but they're also present in other versions — just, perhaps, might have a bit different name. Disable desktop switch when dragging window to an edge: systemsettings5 → Desktop Behaviour → Screen Edges, set the drop down list Switch desktop on edge to Disabled. CTRL+ALT+Arrows to switch desktops: ...

This means you perhaps don't have the correct repository open. sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list If universe is not included then modify the file so that it does. deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial universe multiverse then try installing. sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install kjots

If you are doing a fresh install and don't have any data on that machine that you want to keep, then I would look into installing Kubuntu, which is a distribution of Ubuntu, but with the KDE desktop already installed with all of it's dependencies, instead of the Gnome desktop that comes native with the standard Ubuntu distributions. http://kubuntu.org/ I ...

I solved with the following: Find the deb that is causing the problems: sudo find /var/cache -name "kde-config-telepathy-accounts*" In my case the package was at /var/cache/apt/archives/kde-config-telepathy-accounts_4%3a15.12.3-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb Install it with --force-overwrite: sudo dpkg -i --force-overwrite /var/cache/apt/archives/kde-config-...

I finally found the solution after much searching. I had a ~/.XCompose which probably had a syntax error in it. I removed the file and it started working again.

Yes, KNode has been removed as it was using old code and no one has volunteered to keep it up to date. Thunderbird has support for usenet. Source: http://www.aegiap.eu/kdeblog/2015/08/kdepim-5-0/
