I have just updated to KDE 4.10. I love it, except that plasma crashes at login if I have system tray in my panel.
If I remove the entry with “plugin=systemtray” from ~/.kde4/share/config/plasma-desktop-appletsrc then I can login, and sometimes I can add systemtray back without crash. But in this case logout - login and it again crashes.
It seems to be this bug: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=311751 and I was wondering if other people who upgraded to 4.10 are having the same issue … because I haven’t seen any other thread about this. Is there a workaround?
Not seeing this either. But I’ve seen some reports on odd systray behaviour, in many cases related to “external” apps, i.e. Skype, Mumble. Do you have any of such?
IME editing / commenting out single lines from KDE config files doesn’t always bring the desired result. If you’re sure it’s plasma that crashes, remove all the plasm* files from your .kde4/share/config folder whilst not being logged in. That will leave all application settings intact, just restore the desktop appearance to default.
In fact I have several. Such as autokey, nabi (IME), spideroak.
I have spideroak running here in with KDE upgraded to 4.10 and I do not have any issues, so you can probably rule out spideroak.
autokey?? I never could get that to run properly. I would like to know your secret on that one.
Glad it worked out for you.
It’s strange that you have issues with Dvorak though … I’m using Colemak and mine works as follows:
abbreviation: if I have .mail for firstname.lastname@example.org, then when I type .mail in any keyboard layout (qwerty, colemak), it correctly inputs the email address.
hotkey: The key location changes depending on the layout I’m in. For example, for ctrl+p, I press ctrl+p in colemak, which is r key in qwerty. (Hope you see what I mean - sorry for lack of better description)
