Showstopping Bugs KDE-rc1

Postby grimdestripador on Thu Apr 02, 2009 4:21 pm

Bug reports:
I have trouble during installation with downloading language updates. When I click shutdown, it informs me of other sessions active. I click close. It shutsdown. Boot up, grub is really /dev/sdd5 not /dev/sda5 as it defaulted.

On sucessfull boot, wigets that contain webpages like comic and whether/temps crash desktop to white, then reload ofter some seconds.

I have nvidia 8800GS. and attempt to install 177 drivers using the hardware restricted drivers update. This goes no where; sitting idle for hours, and retrying does not help.
I instead
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-177 nvidia-settings
sudo nvidia-xconfig
sudo nvidia-settings
sudo reboot


Now I try desktop effect. It goes nowhere also. When using apt-get it reports that i need plasma2 installed.
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install compiz-kde

bla bla blaa need plasma2 random library....


I try with
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install plasma3

and no fix, still not with the desktop wigets (which i believe is what plasma is for)

Please address these issues. They are show stoppers for most. I still can't get compiz installed because of dependencies with plasma2

Hi

For compiz try going to System Settings > Default Applications > window manager and change it to compiz instead of the default kwin.
