Swiftkey for Linux

Any one using this app in Android knows how much typing it saves.

I Found this but do not know how to install it? Right now I am typing one handed due to hand surgery.

Anyone know how to get this installed?

Re: Filesystem checks on every boot

I got the same -1, so that means no file checks ever?

I also use a desktop and used the command to do a check after every 5 mounts, should we do this for all the Linux partitions including home?

Re: Filesystem checks on every boot

As far as I can tell, it gives the message and boots right up, it does not seem it is doing the file check, unless my computer is super fast?

Re: Replacement KDE distros... Feedback here!

I tried the Neon on a USB stick, I like it, it looks just like Mint KDE, it does not come with all the same preinstalled apps, but that is not a big deal. For now I will stick with Mint KDE until it is out of date. Too bad Mint is dropping KDE.

Panel icons not spacing

In KDE 17.3 the icons on the panel to the left would space out evenly after a log out log in. (first pic)

In KDE 18.2 they will no longer do this? (second pic)

Is there a config setting that can make this happen?

Thanks

You are right, updates, and dropbox so far.

LM 18x KDE System tray

Hi I am still using 17.3 which will simply open any object on the system tray with a single LMB, on 18x it required that you RMB and then choose what you want from the dialogue with the LMB. Any way to make the 18x system tray function like 17.3?

Thanks

Re: Is the enthusiasm gone on KDE/Plasma?

Still using 17.3 KDE, how much enthusiasm do you want, it is just a great GUI. The OS lies underneath.

I must agree the latest KDE is ugly.

Re: How to make Evince open maximized

Solved

Open the app> RMB top bar of window > more actions > special windows settings. From there you get a dialogue to modify the window for that app any way you like. I am using KDE, so not sure this would apply to all GUI versions?

How to make Evince open maximized [Solved]

Every time I open Evince, it only will open to 1/3 of the available desktop space. Most apps just default to the size you had them when they were last closed? There is no setting I can find to adjust this, any one have an idea how to open evince maximized?

Thanks
