Re: Virtual keyboard in German under Plasma DE

With latest upgrade of my Sabayon system (Plasma 5.12.5, KDE-Frameworks 5.47.0, QT-Version 5.9.6 and Kernel 4.16.16), I have got some changes, which seem to be buggy. Maybe I will open another thread for this. But first those changes / bugs must be fixed before I will try onboard to install. It wou...

Re: Virtual keyboard in German under Plasma DE

Another virtual keyboard that works in SL is the Ubuntu virtual keyboard Onboard . It also supports all the language layouts (including German). I like it because it can also behave like an Android keypad: a longer press on a virtual key pops up all the possible variants of that letter with diacriti...

Re: Virtual keyboard in German under Plasma DE

The user guide tells you how to do both. See the Customization section: http://t-sato.in.coocan.jp/xvkbd/ You could also use the normal KDE KWin method of setting a bigger default window size. Install x11-apps/xlsfonts to see which X11 fonts are available. One example of many: $ cat ~/XVkbd xvkbd.wi...

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.

Re: Feedback wanted: Relaunch coming soon

Hi Ryuno-Ki, my suggestion would be to drop the serif font and use all sans serif font throughput. Sans serif looks more modern.

Re: Looking for a new laptop.

Personally, I would avoid any laptop that uses NVIDIA Optimus hardware, which is commonly used in laptops. I have a Clevo laptop (W230SS, which I believe is no longer available) that has NVIDIA Optimus hardware and, although it is possible to use Linux with it, NVIDIA Optimus is more fiddly to get w...

Re: message "localhost cannot open /proc/meminfo"

The Sabayon Linux 4.15.* kernel was compiled with support for /proc file system enabled (CONFIG_PROC_FS=y), as you can see: https://github.com/Sabayon/kernel/blob/4.15/sabayon/config/sabayon-amd64.config So my pure guess is that Kaffeine is buffering/caching the video stream in RAM and reaching the ...
