News on BSD?

Hi all!

I just wanted to ask: is any news on porting TDE to *BSD?



Please do not email me anything that you are not comfortable also sharing with the NSA.

Supposedly on latest R14 but apt-get is reporting IGN on the mirror.xcer.cz translation

So obviously I do not have the correct entry in the line for 
mirror.xcer.cz wheezy in my sources.list or perhaps something in 
preferences suffering from bitrot?

What is the correct sources.list line for staying current with all tde 
r14  updates?

I did just now get 11 updates for the box on the mill, but none for this 
box, which should have similar TDE installs.  But I've been looking at a 
red star for the update-manager status just to the left of the time-date 
display for weeks, just on this machine, but if I "sudo apt-get update",

Huge tde update yesterday, python stuff now fails

Greetings guru's;

This did work before the 51 tde updates yesterday:

gene <at> GO704:~/linuxcnc$ python python_opencv_camera_example_with_gui.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "python_opencv_camera_example_with_gui.py", line 278, in <module>
  File "python_opencv_camera_example_with_gui.py", line 222, in main
    root = Tk()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/lib-tk/Tkinter.py", line 1712, in __init__
    self.tk = _tkinter.create(screenName, baseName, className, 
interactive, wantobjects, useTk, sync, use)
_tkinter.TclError: unknown color name "BACKGROUND"

This has been a  dog & pony show I have been to before, several times, 
and each time IIRC the fix was different.  Historically, if by playing 
the 10,000 monkeys with typewriters scene long enough that I manage to 
fix 'BACKGROUND' the FOREGROUND will be the next excuse used to exit a 
formerly working script.

Does anyone have a clue what to fix this time?

Thanks everybody.

Cheers, Gene Heskett

TDE and Wayland

I've just been reading about Wayland supposed to be used in distributions this 
year. While I guess X will still be provided for some time, I was wondering 
how Wayland would impact TDE?

kaddressbook no resource file available kmail 1.9.10 trinity R14.0.3 on debian Jessie

had this system running for a while now, but somehow i never used 
kaddressbook. I thought i had it configured correctly, but, since it doesn't 
work, i done something wrong.
The standard error is " no resource available".
googling for it helps very little and everything reverts to kde4, even 
the "about kmail" help tag link!!!!
any pointers to properly configuring kaddressbook would be appreciated.
thanks in advance,

Kate and Konsole settings lost

Hi there.

After starting my laptop I notices that my two Kate instances had forgot 
the session they had open.

Also, Konsole forgot its open tabs and the settings/schema/paper background.

These were easy enough to restore but in case it's a symptom of a more 
serious problem I thought I'd run it by the list.

Also, shutdown didn't complete so I had to hard-reset the laptop with 
the press-the-power-button-down-for-5-seconds trick, not nice!

You might be running into systemd changes.  These are large enough that I have 
not tried to do this kind of mixing with Wheezy.  Have you tried looking at 
backports for new versions of those programs?  


I can report that Wheezy, as it is, works wonderfully with the TDE 3.5 branch.  
The only thing I've added to my production laptop is TDE and E16, documented 

I have been avoiding Jessie and have not yet tried with Stretch yet.

Re: Re: Still keyboard trouble

Just for information:

I've removed the US keyboard setup and now only have the Swiss-French 
keyboard. Since then I've had no keyboard problem.

So it seems that - maybe linked with the use of a KVM - the problem has 
something to do with multiple keyboard setup.

For the moment at least this workaround helps.
