Re: Virtual keyboard in German under Plasma DE

And again thank you, Fitz. I confess, it is very hard for me to understand several manuals and user guides. I think beside personal language lacks of myself some guides and manuals are written unclearly and incomplete. May be my unability, but since English is not my native language the more I need ...

Re: Virtual keyboard in German under Plasma DE

Try xkbd and xvkbd to see if they can be configured for German layout. Both are in the Entropy package repository. http://t-sato.in.coocan.jp/xvkbd/xvkbd-german.gif Thank you very much for good suggestions, Fitz. I tried both, xkbd is not an option, while xvkbd could be maybe usable. I found out to...

Re: Plasma 5.12.4: All apps suddenly on one screen

---Update--- I assume, I have found the responsible instance / program for this attitude, that all my spread applications of my Plasma ar 'imploded' to run on one surface only: I had 'luck' to read a German message before it shaded out when this event of 'imploding' happened to me again today: The G...

Re: midnight commander: memory access error [Solved]

Update: A friend just told me to check mc to work with mouse clicks, which I did now. And he is right, it is not possible to control mc with mouse. So, mc is opened, ready to use, it is possible to use it with keys, but when using a mouse (e.g. to change a directory or activate a function), there is...
