    From the Administrator / Fix for systemloadviewer applet
    « on: November 15, 2016, 12:26:07 PM »
    To fix the systemloadviewer widget (at least until an official fix is released), do the following:

    - edit /usr/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.plasma.systemloadviewer/contents/ui/SystemLoadViewer.qml

    - find the following line:
    Code: [Select]
    var memUsed = parseFloat(dataSource.data[dataSource.memUsed] ? dataSource.data[dataSource.memUsed].value : 0) / 1024
    - add the following line after it:
    Code: [Select]
    var memApplication = parseFloat(dataSource.data[dataSource.memApplication] ? dataSource.data[dataSource.memApplication].value : 0) / 1024
    - save your changes

    - reboot

    At this point, tooltips will be restored - in this case that means you'll see the actual stats again - and you can now enable "CPUs separately" under "Show:" in settings again.


    FYI for those of you having trouble running the latest 4.8.4 desktop release in Virtualbox, apparently the 4.8.4 kernel config didn't enable CONFIG_KVM_APIC_ARCHITECTURE as it was in the 4.7.x kernels. I posted a bug report which may or may not result in any action, but the workaround is to enable I/O APIC when setting up your VM motherboard.

    FYI, please check the following:

    - if this file contains the line "exec startkde", delete this line - it's causing a logout error (you'll have to logout twice to actually logout).

    If you have no need for the .xinitrc or .xsession files, you can delete these. .xinitrc is called by .xsession which was used by kdm which is not supported by kde5. Unless you have personally modified these files for a specific reason, you can delete them.

    Also, I've found confirmation that there is a QXcbConnection bug that causes crashes of kde/plasma processes that use QtSql. Apparently, qtsql connections are being closed asynchronously and randomly before the kde services are ready for their connections to be closed. There is a bugfix for this that will be released with Qt 5.8.


    You can read through the whole bug report, but the relevant parts start at comment #27.


    From the Administrator / korgac crash at startup
    « on: October 15, 2016, 03:17:42 AM »
    If you're experiencing a "korgac" crash during login after the most recent kde/plasma updates, this is due to an issue with session management. I've logged a bug report with KDE - https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=370883 .

    Who knows how long before it's resolved. It appears that it might be related to QDBus, and Qt5 is still a full version behind Plasma. Perhaps we'll see a fix by Qt 5.8 - we're on 5.7.0 now, and 5.7.1 is in the pipeline before 5.8.

    Meanwhile, there is a workaround.

    Go to SystemSettings->Startup and Shutdown->Desktop Session->On Login and enter korgac into the space entitled "Applications to be excluded from sessions". Save your changes.

    The next time you login, you won't get the crash+coredump. Your xdg service will autostart korgac for you, anyway, so you aren't losing any functionality.

    Also, please check your /var/lib/systemd/coredump directory for core dumps. You can delete these if you have no use for them (the vast majority of you won't have any use for them) - they do take up disk space.


    From the Administrator / megasync
    « on: September 25, 2016, 03:02:43 PM »
    For anyone who uses mega.nz for cloud storage, an updated version of megasync is now available from the bluestar repository. My apologies for taking too long to notice that the previous version had become broken.

    Those of you looking for a decent amount of free cloud storage should check out mega.nz. You get 50GB of storage for free and the megasync tool works very well. I do not represent this site in any way, but I feel that it's a good free service for anyone who needs more cloud storage than the paltry amount offered for free by other services. So, basically, it's my two cents worth.
