    Default little niggles on 13.2

    OK, I like it,

    But!

    there is always a but...

    Why does this keyboard thing startup using US even though I have
    specifically told it to use UK/GB??? and even though it is using UK it
    still shows US on the icon?????

    This I suppose was the problem I posted about before about keyboard issues.

    also have tried plasma 5 and yes it works but the desktop has a problem with
    fonts, the task bar etc are completely unreadable ( well not quite but some
    characters are ) and the taskbar, menues and like are unusable.


    This happens from the normal oss and tumbleweed/factory) repos.

    even after a full format and install.


    Oh and while we are at it I cannot get any sound out of Minecraft, this is
    the most important thing for an old f*rt like me :-) and when I try half
    life (original) with wine do expect more.....

    Please take as lighthearted not critic.

    Cheers

    Not happening to me

    I tried it in a sandbox. Decided it's not ready enough

    Sorry, I just don't have time for playing games nor even the interest.

    Doesn't happen for me. How did you tell it to switch to UK? I always do
    it on an install by pressing F2 as soon as the DVD welcome panel is
    replaced by the menu.

    I did just that but no difference ( complete install on spare drive ) but I
    did find that it was the Ibus thingymgig that even though I had only UK
    language selected ( and only UK ) it still showed on the taskbar as US.

    Not that it made any difference :-)

    Anyway I seem to have got round it.

    Mant more questions but not enough time :-)

    Cheers Graham.

    Yeah I found out it is the Ibus icon n the system tray, no matter which
    language is selected and only one in the prefs it still shows US on the
    taskbar????

    Not that I mind because I just told it to not show the icon :-) Sorry to
    all over the pond ;-)

    Ah so you will not get this reply then so I will go and play a game instead
    because at my time of life games are more important than work :-P

    Cheers though, and do not take this too seriously....

    The Plasma 5 I cannot figure out and just for info, all KDE 4 and other
    stuff renders fine just the plasma 5 task-bar, menus and stuff, I think it
    has something to do with the fonts???

    I have also noticed that in "Minecraft" the same appears in the initial
    screen, there are certain letters "C" and others that do not render and look
    like a very badly drawn "V" this is as good as I can describe it, if anyone
    wants a screenshot then please ask but not of plasma 5 because I am not
    going to d/l and then delete it again ( limited bandwidth and 2 gig down
    then another is getting a bit near the end for this month )

    Cheers.
