(Wow, this forum is dead. Are there really that few Mint KDE users?)
My new Mint 12 KDE is looking good! -- except for problems noted below. This may be the most attractive and functional desktop I've used inn 25 years.
Fonts have gone out of control for the second time! (I've done two installs.)
Everything was beautiful, then something changed. I was not messing with the
fonts. I suspect it may have happened when I ran Konqueror. The font changed --
to Ubuntu, I think -- on window titles, and in KDE dialogs, Dolphin file lists,
and Thunderbird (monospace) message body text, among others. Firefox did not
change. Using KDE System Setting to change the font back does not work.
Damn, after a reboot, fonts are messed up in Firefox, too, and all of
Thunderbird. This is really annoying!
I'm using the network meter widget on my desktop. It WAS set with nice
green/blue colors on the lines. It changed to gray for no apparent reason. What
changed it, and how can I change it back? (There's no color item in its
Settings) --- OK, that fixed itself on reboot, for now.
How can I change the background image of the active splash screen theme? (not
the theme itself)
Is there any way to make the sensitivity zone for grabbing a window border
bigger, without making the border itself bigger?
How can I make a shortcut item to open Dolphin as Root?
Is Dolphin related to, or just renamed Konqueror file manager?
Hmm... and why am I seeing a Mint Gnome screen when as I log out? (BTW, this is KDE installed over a Mint Gnome install.)
And, why am I getting Nautilus launched automatically to my home folder? Maybe related to the KDE home folder widget on my desktop?
