Problems with KDE 4

Postby vfafou » Sun Jan 20, 2013 19:42

I'm sorry for the duplication, I wanted to describe other problems and I accidentally copied and pasted the previous one.
So my problems are:

1. Sometimes I boot at KDE, the panel shows grey instead of transparent glass as the Air theme is chosen. Note that I have an AMD E-350 vision laptop and I have replaced the proprietary driver with the open one, with kernel 3.7.

2. Google earth does not inherit the system's chosen font.

3. I can't have accented Greek letters. KDE shows ´α instead of ά.

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you!

You have already posted about this http://forum.sabayon.org/viewtopic.php?f=86&t=28910 and it is not a good idea to post twice about the same problem.

For the future, you can just hit the "report" button on your post (a gray triangular with its top downwards). Add additional information and ask for merging the threads.

In case Google Earth uses GTK libraries (not the default!), you could try this. I've found some hints, that GE is using media-fonts/corefonts. So you could try this out, too.

Maybe it works similiar to German umlauts ... You could provide /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/00-keyboard.conf and /etc/conf.d/keymap and look for "nodeadkeys". Does it works in a virtual console (e.g. Ctrl+Alt+F2) correctly?

Mine looks like this:
Code: Select all
$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/00-keyboard.conf
Section "InputClass"
       Identifier "keyboard"
       MatchIsKeyboard "yes"
       Option "XkbLayout" "de"
       #Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"
       Option  "XkbOptions" ""
EndSection


A last guess is this thread.

I have Radeon 9000 graphics card...sorry I forgot to wrote but on the same computer with KDE3 and won the same computer but with different account (user) everything works. IMO drivers are not a problem.

There are more problems: nepomukservicestub crashed all the time, same kde4-gnash.

Looks like that is KDE4 still in pre beta version.
