Re: LM 18x KDE System tray

You are right, updates, and dropbox so far.

I like KDE and will not switch over this nuisance.

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: heimdall

I would go over to XDA Developers and look up the device you want to flash, and get help there.

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?

Re: How to make Evince open maximized

Thanks for the help, that worked, but I probably should have said maximized?

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

Re: Evolution Email Client

I would go to /var/cache/apt/archives/ search for evolution, click on one of the older versions to install it, and try that, you also might want to downgrade any recent networking software if that does not work?

Re: Im exploring the KDE environment.

X2 I went to openSuse KDE when Gnome 2 replaced Gnome 1, stayed there for a couple of years until Mint released a KDE version. I am happy, and there is no learning curve to KDE upgrades, just more features.

Re: Chromium should be the default browser

Firefox is fitting to Linux as a true open source browser.

Anything Google does is just quasi open source.

Re: New people need to stop using 18.X and use 17.3.

I have 18.1 installed along side 17.3, just a matter of taking the time to move some info from old home to new, and give it a shot.

Re: New people need to stop using 18.X and use 17.3.

I tried 18.0 and I went back to 17.3 as I use my PC for business purpose, but even some of us vets should stick with a stable release.
