daxim is a 34 year old German living in Austria. He has seen programming languages come and go, but Perl stuck. He enjoys doing things with the Web and system programming on Linux and likes consuming well-written documentation as well. He finds testing exciting. Five modules so far found their way to (?:Back|C)PAN.

Hobbies include wiki-gnoming, languages, drinking Club-Mate, music games, majiang and visiting the local Mongers and conferences (see below). He actually had to look up how to write a short bio to remember how to do it because he usually avoids things like that.

comment How do I increase the font size in YaST2 on openSUSE 13.2?
kcontrol is for KDE3 and does not even run properly anymore, this is a dead end. I have used systemsettings, the KDE4 successor, to change application styles and fonts. This applies to both KDE4 applications and plain Qt applications. YaST2 remains unaffected.

comment How do I increase the font size in YaST2 on openSUSE 13.2?
I didn't have any Qt3 applications or libraries installed, so this is a dead end. To be sure, I installed package qt3 and tested with /usr/lib/qt3/bin/qtconfig, but as expected this has no effect on YaST2.

comment How do I increase the font size in YaST2 on openSUSE 13.2?
Changing font size with qtconfig (or rather, kdesu qtconfig, since YaST2 runs as root) works in other Qt (plain, not KDE) applications, such as avidemux2_qt4, cuneiform-qt, flo, juffed, kchmviewer, openpref, qasconfig, qashctl, qasmixer, qlipper, qpdfview, qtconfig itself, quiterss, qvlc, qxkb, simsu, virtualbox-qt, zint-qt, but not in YaST2.

Join the IME mailing list for your distro: opensuse-m17n, Debian pkg-ime-devel etc.

comment Automatically saving files on edit with kate or any text editor
Double-clicking makes a local copy, this is for the benefit of non kio-enabled applications. If you really need to involve a file manager (instead of simply navigating from the editor itself), just drag & drop the remote file into the editor.

comment KDE shared desktop is graphically slanted
Try an alternative VNC implementation. Install x11vnc on the remote machine, then tunnel into it. For me, KRDC works fine at any resolution and colour depth.

If it isn't on CPAN (1, 2, 3, 4, 5), it might as well not exist.

comment How can I install the Conkerer web browser on windows?
You did not say for which purpose you need Konqueror. In most use cases, you are better off with a WebKit-based browser.

"It does not work" is not a useful problem description for anyone.

comment GUI tool to extract iso file contents on Linux (KDE)
Voted up for best answer. Similar but inferior programs: kiso, ISOmorphin, isomaster, furiusisomount and, as KIO slave, kio_iso

comment How do I assign Control_R+Menu to the global kxkb switch action?
Accepting you pro forma because it's close enough and the bounty expires tomorrow. Of course I use a modern key mapper instead of xmodmap. The future shall reveal whether I really can dispense with a logical Menu key or whether this will turn out to be a mistake.
