    Exclamation Discussion thread for 42.3 Release Candidate

    Thumbs up Re: Discussion thread for 42.3 Release Candidate

    Build 0270 (taken from /etc/YaST2/build).

    Did a Network Install (CD-ROM ISO) into an Oracle VirtualBox VM -- installation (KDE Desktop) executed without any issues -- completed in about 1 hour with a 50 MBit/s DSL link -- German Language installation -- need to re-run the installation to re-check for any language/translation issues.

    Amarok is still the Qt4/KDE4 version but, it ran without any issues.

    If the login sound is activated, the Leap 42.2 behaviour of "no login sound" is still present -- logout sound is OK though.

    Sound in general seems to be OK (for a VM).

    The Plymouth boot splash still has the (AMD only?) sometimes crash at boot-time behaviour (there's an outstanding Leap 42.2 Bug Report).

    Yes, I saw that. So when I installed build 0270, I was expecting this to be a release candidate. But it still says "Beta".

    I'm guessing that they just screwed up -- forgot to remove the "Beta" part from what goes in "/etc/os-release".

    It is mostly doing fine. However, I am not able to install "calibre" -- it gives a dependency problem when I try. I'll note that there is already an open bug report on this, but I forgot to record the number.

    I also noticed that the installer wanted to install an IMAP server. Something must be recommending that. I'm not sure why.
    opensuse Leap 42.3 beta; KDE Plasma 5;
    opensuse tumbleweed; KDE Plasma 5 (test system);

    Yes, there hasn't been a Qt5/KF5 release yet.
    Not even the KDE4 based version 2.9.0 has been released even though it is in Beta since nearly 2 years...

    Works fine here since about 2 years.

    Check that the selected sound file actually exists though.
    I think there was a problem with the defaults for a while, they still referred to the KDE4 versions that don't exist any more.

    The "no login sound" issue arose with Leap 42.2 late winter this year -- I didn't bother to raise a bug report -- rather hoped that someone else would do so.
    • It may be "yet another AMD platform issue" -- possibly the folks with Intel platforms are not affected by this issue.

    As I wrote, it works fine here, so I don't think there's a general problem. I would rather suspect a configuration problem.

    Again, check that the configured sound file actually exists.
    Does the test button in the settings module play the sound?

    I am using AMD here.
    And why should the CPU have any influence whether a login sound works or not?

    Yes, the sound file exists (KDE login sound) and, the test button plays the sound.
    AMD platform -- the mainboard where the the AMD CPU is plugged in.
    • I will be upgrading my AMD desktop (ASUS mainboard) to Leap 42.2 soon -- maybe it's a Lenovo-only issue . . .

    And does it work if you select a different sound file?

    Maybe post your ~/.config/plasma_workspace.notifyrc.

    TBH, I don't see any relation to the particular hardware at all.
    Unless sound would not be working in general of course.

    And I also have no idea where you even get that idea from that there are "AMD platform issues" in the first place.
    Just because the main kwin developer uses Intel graphics?

    Ok, I don't see anything obviously wrong there.

    Just one thing:
    /usr/share/sounds/KDE-Sys-Log-In.ogg is from KDE4 (package kdebase4-runtime to be exact).
    The Plasma5 equivalent would be /usr/share/sounds/Oxygen-Sys-Log-In.ogg in the package oxygen5-sounds.

    Shouldn't cause a problem though as long as kdebase4-runtime is installed (which is the case on a default KDE installation, as we still install some KDE4 applications).
