KHotNewStuff problem

Postby Sorensei on Wed Apr 15, 2009 9:50 am

Hi,
Upgraded a couple of days ago from Elyssa to Felicia - very nice. KDE4 will certainly need some using to, though.

However, when I wanted to play around a little with the desktop, adding themes/widget/wallpapers/plasmoids through KhotNewStuff didn't work - apparently it cannot reach the relevant server. Downloading directly from KDE-look.org and extracting in the relevant .kde folder does work, though. :)

There is probably something to tweek somewhere but I've no inkling where.

Any ideas, anyone? Thanks in advance...
I don't have a solution, but I do admire the problem.

Yup - and no error message as far as I can see

Sorry for not posting it earlier, I'm really not very good with screenshots... :oops:

Here is the error message - the text roughly translates as "An error occurred while loading data suppliers" which is not very helpful.

Should it have any relevance, I have the ppa repos enabled and the system is up-to-date...

Thank you in advance for any help or hint...

Seems to be an 404 not found error
I read that this KHotNewStuff is not all that reliable
Apart form that not a clue

I agree, it's a nice idea but not entirely reliable. I think it worked in Elyssa, though - I'm not 100% sure.
Well if you don't have a clue I feel somewhat less useless... :wink: In any case, thank you for answering!
It's not a showstopper, however - I'm enjoying the release very much anyway.
