    Default KTorrent No Longer Works Properly

    The process looks to be started but the ktorrent window never opens, you also can't close the process in ksysguard and it slowly bleeds memory and you get system slow down. That last application update seems to have done for it.

    Maybe it's running in the system tray?
    Do you see its icon there, maybe in the list of hidden icons that appear when you click on the small up-arrow just left of the digital clock?

    you also can't close the process in ksysguard
    Not even forcefully?
    Does "killall -KILL ktorrent" work?

    That last application update seems to have done for it.
    What "last application update", and from where?
    ktorrent hasn't been changed in years (it is being ported to KF5 currently though, but not released yet).

    And it works fine here in 13.2.

    In any case, you miss vital information, like your openSUSE version and the ktorrent version you have installed.

    Had to cold boot to get it to work, it wouldn't launch from the sys tray. Had some pretty big updates recently and I forget to log out after them, never mind reboot.

    Right, I noticed this after replying.
    But also this doesn't tell which ktorrent version you have installed, and what the "last application update" was that you mentioned.

    And why did you choose "OTHER VERSION" then, and not "Leap 42.1"? Confusing people on purpose?
    There is a reason why this selection has been added...

    I usually choose 'Leap' but last time you said it wasn't technically Leap any more if you use the 'kf5 & Plasma 5' repo, so I guess that leaves us with 'other version'

    I'll stick to Leap and put 'kf5 & Plasma 5 repo' in sig, probably more noticeable.

    You're still using Leap 42.1 as operating system.
    But yes, your KDE is not Leap 42.1, but in this case you should state explicitely where you install it from.
    5.5.4 is the version in official Leap as well.

    I'll stick to Leap and put 'kf5 & Plasma 5 repo' in sig, probably more noticeable.
    Good idea.
    But if you have a question about one particular application, it's always good to mention where you installed it from too (unless you use the standard version in the distribution).

    Nice to hear that the problem is solved though.

    And I hope you are aware of the fact that a signature is just that. It is at the end of your message to show in fact your name, address, etc. That means that when you move elsewhere and change e.g. your address in your signature, you signature is changed to your new address in all the posts (when sjhown) you made, from the first one on. Logical, because when someone reads an old post, he will then still be able tro reach you at your new address.

    The signature here on these forums are misused often for mentioning which hardware and/or software one uses. many people forget to update it. BBut when they do update it, all older posts will show the new signature. This will then become very confusing posts. The more detail you put in your signature and the more often you change it, the more chance that it does not fit even more recent posts.

    While I admit that having some information in the signature is better then having none, the best is still to start with information on versions, etc. That was also the main reason to have the menu where you have to choose between the openSUSE versions. And we hoped that this obligatory action would lead to people mentioning more of this info when starting a thread.
