    xx Baloo File Watch Service - Disable Login Authentication
    August 26, 2015, 01:58:13 AM by admin
    To disable the annoying baloo file watch service authentication on login, add the following line to your /etc/xdg/autostart/baloo_file.desktop:

    Code: [Select]
    Hidden=True
    You can also try adding your home folder to the list of non-indexed folders in the Desktop Search KCM (System Settings -> Desktop Search) - I tried this first and it didn't work to disable the service authentication.

    clip Cairo-dock / Dolphin Change - Fix
    August 24, 2015, 01:30:35 AM by admin
    If you've performed the latest kde update, you'll have noticed that dolphin has disappeared from your cairo dock. This is because the .desktop file in /usr/share/applications has changed - it is now /usr/share/applications/org.kde.dolphin.desktop instead of the old /usr/share/applications/kde4/dolphin.desktop.

    To fix this, you need to change the bottom line of your ~/.config/cairo-dock/current_theme/launchers/01nautilus.desktop file to reflect the new dolphin desktop file path.

    Code: [Select]
    Origin=/usr/share/applications/org.kde.dolphin.desktop
    If you've lost the file, I've attached a fixed version of it.

    Cheers

    xx Bluestar Repository Update - 08/14/2015
    August 15, 2015, 12:37:50 AM by admin
    The following packages have been added or updated:

    Updated:
    - chromium-pepper-flash-18.0.0.233-1
    - google-chrome-44.0.2403.155-1

    Added:
    - megasync-2.1.1-1
    - megafuse-git-r149.50bc488-1
    - wine-staging-1.7.49-1
    - keepassx2-beta1-1
    - vfu-4.16-1
    - chromium-widevine-1.4.8.823-2

    Notes:

    The mega packages are used to sync up with mega.co.nz cloud services (50 GB free for new account registration). There is an error in the documentation that defines the location of megafuse.conf as ~/.config/megafuse.conf - it's not, it should be ~/.config/MegaFuse/megafuse.conf.

    The wine-staging package is a replacement for wine-silverlight. This is important because wine-silverlight has been deprecated and is no longer available. Wine-staging also provides CSMT, PulseAudio, ACL and CUDA support.

    The chromium-widevine package is supposed to provide DRM support to chromium - this should allow you to watch Netflix streaming content.

    Cheers

    xx Firefox + Flash Issue
    July 15, 2015, 11:57:39 PM by admin
    To get around the current issue with Firefox and Flash, please install the following packages:

    pipelight
    wine-silverlight

    If you've already installed the standard wine package, remove it and replace it with wine-silverlight.

    Both of these packages are available via the bluestar repository.
