Thac and Zé's KDE 3.4 rpms

Recommended Posts

Found a small bug: there is no svg preview. For instance if you want to select a wallpaper svg wallpapers don't show in the preview screen.

Have somebody found the way to fix the "restart" and "turn off" options from the Kmenu..

I can't directly turn off or even restart the computer using this options... (have to log off first)...

Ok... but I did install kde 3.4 on mandrake 10.1..... did somebody find how to fix it for mandrake 10.1??... And I have some other issue.. not sure if it's related (must be) but.. since I did the upgrade my cd doesn't seems to auto mount anymore, the cd icon doesn't appear anymore (yes... it is selected to appear) , I have to mount it explicitly by console (mount /mnt/cdrom)....

what's wrong???

here's my fstab cdrom entry:

/dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom auto umask=0,user,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,noauto,ro,users 0 0

 

Maybe something got erased on the upgrade...

please help!!!

I had 3.4 installed on 10.1 too prior to resetting my system to 10.2. It functioned fine as far as KDM and Shutdown/Restart goes.

 

p.s. I have the same cd mount problem as you!

It is well known that upgrading Mandrake from one version to another frequently causes problems. A clean install is often adviced. I give that advice as well.

at the end... this comes out:

 

 

 

** (process:8250): CRITICAL **: file eggdesktopentries.c: line 2223 (egg_desktop_entries_add_group): assertion `egg_desktop_entries_lookup_group (entries, group_name) == NULL' failed

update-menus[8215]: Running method: /etc/menu-methods/simplified/simplified-xdg-desktop-entry-spec-dirs

I got that stuff too, but no idea what it means. The procedure still worked, more or less.

 

Here's another one, loosely on that subject: is anyone finding that some new icons added to the Quick Launch panel (sorry if it has another name under Linux) disappear again after reboot? It seems intermittent and I can't pin it down, but it keeps happening.

It's called 'panel'.

I know what you mean, happened to me too, but it seems to have stopped.

Alas, I haven't rebooted for a long time now. The damn OpenOffice Writer icon frequently dissapeared after reboots.

I've just updated to KDE 3.4 on 10.1 OE, and it's all working a treat! I've not tested much yet, but all seems good so far!

 

I only had an issue with the mdkkdm mentioned earlier, but that's all solved after removing and reinstalling!

Well, just a couple of errors so far. First the some of the menus have double entries so am just running the update-menus -v command.

 

The other errors I have are:

 

Bootup:

 

Entering non-interactive startup

mknod: '/dev/dri/card0' No such file or directory

 

Although, when I'm logged in, /dev/dri/card0 does exist, so how can I stop this error from appearing?

 

Another is that when I choose Reboot or Shutdown from within KDE, it goes straight back to the mdkkdm menu, rather than rebooting or shutting down. When at the mdkkdm screen, if I click reboot (select Windows), or Halt, it does the command fine. Anyone know a resolution to this?

Yup, I have both of those. Non-threatening as far as I can tell, but bothersome indeed.

 

For the second one, I've just taken to tapping my lappy's power button instead - this performs a normal shutdown.
