'configure' button greyed out for QtCurve

Any ideas why the configure button is greyed out for QtCurve? I'm on a relatively fresh installation of 2014.5 fully up-to-date (no Limbo). I was going to import a theme but can't seem to activate the button. I searched Google but nobody seems to have had this problem since 2009.

Re: Home directory not detected

Such an outpouring of help on this issue guys. :D Google was not at all helpful in sorting it out either, and trust me, I searched relentlessly. So, I tried to do a fresh install with the KDE daily from Nov. 20th. Unfortunately, while the daily disk booted fine and the installation went without issu...

Re: How can I get back KDE 4.10.5 ?

You basically can't downgrade to KDE 4.10.5. Using emerge and portage will constitute mixing packaging managers and that will likely break your system. The AmaroK bug is a known bug (though it didn't affect me for once.) My advice is to wait patiently until the inevitable fixes come in a few days.

Re: VLC doesn't suspend the screensaver

Looks like this is a known bug in VLC ( https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4027 ) You could simply just suspend the screen saver yourself before starting the media player. I mean it literally takes just five quick clicks in KDE. Or, you could just click a handy shell-script. :D #!/bin/sh xset s...

Re: Package version bump request policy

I enterend a bugzilla request for Linux Mint's display manager (MDM) more than a month ago and didn't here didly squat one way or the other. I guess the developers decide at their lesiure which packages are updated.

Re: KDE 4.10.3, FYI

I have not had the same problem. But, I only run KDE. Is there a chance you're also running another DE?
