Here's what you could do to remap session locking from default Ctrl+Alt+L (tested with KDE4.3) : Go to "System Settings" (KDE menu). Choose "Keyboard & mouse" (on "General" tab). Choose "Global Keyboard Shortcuts" on the left. Choose "Run Command Interface" from "KDE component" dropdown list. Choose "Lock session". Select "Custom". Click on "None" ...

It's possible that your locale is configured improperly; the most likely reason is that, even though the file names are stored in UTF-8, your terminal (I'm guessing Konsole) still expects a legacy ISO-8859-* encoding. I don't know the rest, but here are a few steps to ensure the basic configuration is correct. This script may also help. Edit ...

In the KDE Control Center, a.k.a. System Settings, there is an "Autostart" module that will allow you to set programs to run when you log in to KDE. On my computer it's on the "Advanced" tab, but I think the layout varies somewhat from distro to distro. If you want to mess with it at a lower level, the files to run on startup go in ~/.kde4/Autostart.

You aren't the only one who thinks it's useless. The KDE developers are removing this notification entirely in KDE 4.10. To disable it now, follow these steps: Go to System Settings.

Settings → Configure Kate → Open/save → Modes & filetypes → Download highlighting files. No need to go to a website to copy any files or change any settings, just go to your Kate settings and simply download the Less CSS highlighting file that is available through the GUI.

I don't know if there is a setting or configuration file for this anywhere but it can be done with environment variables. I've based my answer on this entry in the PulseAudio FAQ about setting the recording source. I've tried this with output (a sink in PulseAudio) but it should work for both input and ouput. The first step is to get the internal name of ...

I've solved the problem by removing ttf-ms-fonts and ttf-vista-fonts and installing higher quality fonts (ttf-ubuntu-font-family and otf-texgyre) from the AUR.

I believe it's under the System Settings tool: System Settings->Keyboard and Mouse->Mouse->Advanced->Pointer Acceleration. Dial it up/down to accelerate/decelerate.

That's how revisions work. Once a commit is processed the revision number assigned is next number after the last latest revision number. You're tracking the revisions of the repository as a whole, not of the particular file.

Thunderbird (at least version 6 here) appears to be using the XDG MIME actions specification. The preferences are stored in ~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list, and all desktop environments are supposed to respect them.

Have you set the keyboard type in KDE System Settings / Hardware / Input Devices / Keyboard, tab Hardware, Keyboard model? If yes and still nothing happens, you might need to configure the action triggered by the key in System Settings / Common Appearance and Behaviour / Shortcuts and Gestures / Custom Shortcuts.

Hibernation actually turns off the power in the same way shutting down does. The difference is that hibernation stores the state of the machine first. So if you laptop is turning on by itself from hibernation, then something is either pressing the power button or your power button is defective, and will make contact from just jostling it or something. E: ...

Q1: You want to turn off the Strigi document indexer if you want a reasonable db size, or limit the directories it indexes. The tagging/commenting portion of it is pretty lightweight and snappy. Q2: Not that I know of, I'd just symlink it. But removing the Strigi service will reduce it drammatically. Just clear your db data dir after you disable it.

you can use wmctrl as the basis: % wmctrl -a WIN the only thing you have to do is find out "WIN", which is the id for the window matching a certain criteria. <WIN> This argument specifies the window. By default it's interpreted as a string. The string is matched against the window titles and the first matching window is ...

Try going to the Backend tab and see which is the top preferred selection, and perhaps change it to prefer one over the other. For good measure may as well re-compile media-sound/phonon and all it's audio-related deps while you're at it. All those other apps don't give a hoot about Phonon, so that's why they work. For reference, I also run a Gentoo desktop ...

FiltaQuilla is an add-on that enables the user to properly and precisely configure notifications, based on built-in filters or enhanced filters. Maybe one could try to extend its functionality to filter/notify chat messages. I don't have a full answer here, but it might be a good start. I would not be surprised if the developer of this add-on would make ...

You switched to a different "virtual console" – there are several separate 'workspaces' which you can switch between using Alt+Fnum (or, inside Xorg, Ctrl+Alt+Fnum), where num is the number of the virtual console. By default, text logins are available on the first six. Depending on the method you started KDE, Xorg should be running on either VC #1 or #7.

Many KDE programs use a message bus called D-Bus to communicate with each other, and with various system services. (Your system has two dbus-daemon instances running, one managing the "session" bus (which is specific to your current KDE session, and has no restrictions), the other managing the "system" bus (which is used by system services and is highly ...
