Public keys

I am still having problems with keys.  By now I have got into a complete 
muddle and get no-where, or less than nowhere, with Googling, or searching my 
own archives, but more muddle.

Can some kind soul point me, in words of less than one syllable, at the 
correct keys for:

deb wheezy main
deb wheezy

deb wheezy

TDE v14.0.0 development status update

Hi everybody,
just thought about giving an update of where we are with the development of v14.0.0.

Back in March we made a list of bugs to fix before the next release. Such list was made up of a total of 115 bugs
(31 of which "conditional" ones).
The list has grown a little bit to a total of 123 bugs and so far we have solved 78 of them (approx 63%), plus some
more (approx 10) that we didn't add to the list even if they should have been.

It's taking longer than expected, but we all have just spare time for TDE and we are trying our best. Even if
slowly, we are step-by-step edging towards finalizing v14.0.0. 
How long more will it take? Can't give a precise answer, but based on the experience so far I would say between
3 to 5 months to get to the bottom of that list and be ready for the first release candidate.

As usual, you can keep up with the current development status either:
- on bugszilla bug 2014 (
- or on the TDE etherpad (

changing keyboard layout X freezes.


This is very odd (using Kubuntu 10.04, trinity 3.5.13), I set 

"Control '"c to change keyboard layout. (I have 3 keyboards configured)

Sometimes, but not always when hitting "Control '" the keyboard does not
change but slowly X freezes and I have to turn off the machine, since no key is

Has somebody observed something similar?

Trinity Control Center

Hi Guys,
Just installed Alexandre's live CD PCLinuxOS with Trinity Desktop.

If you look in "Trinity Control Center"  "KDE Components"  Component 
Chooser and Default Applications,  contain the same options and for 
all intents and purpose are identical except for the name.

Now got this installed on at least half a dozen machines and it seems 
to be OK.  Thanks Alexandre.

kvpnc: more problems


I just realized that

So I tried to remove this package but then I am told that 154 package
will be removed, which I refused.

Now when I tried 

Sudo apt-get install (it is already installed) then instead of uprading 
apt-get offers me to install 20 addional packages

libphonon4 libqt4-assistant libqt4-dbus libqt4-designer libqt4-help libqt4-opengl
  libqt4-qt3support libqt4-script libqt4-scripttools libqt4-sql
  libqt4-sql-mysql libqt4-sql-sqlite libqt4-svg libqt4-test
  libqt4-webkit libqt4-xml libqt4-xmlpatterns libqtcore4 libqtgui4

problem with kpvnc


I am running 10.04 with trinity 3.5.13 on various laptops. So far kvpnc
has worked out with problem, but after installing it a couple of minutes
ago in the last laptop I obtain an error when executing kpvnc:

kvpnc: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/lib/
invalid ELF header 

I have never seen this error before and I am quite puzzled.

Any help is appreciated since kvpnc is one of the essential packages for

PCLinuxOS non-official TDE remaster version 2014, April 30 is ready to download!

Hi everyone!

My PCLinuxOS TDE non-official remaster version 2014, April 30 is ready to download!

I call it non-official because it doesn't come from the PCLOS team and since it contains software coming from outside of
their repos, it is also not supported by them. It only has a special ''permission to exist'' from the PCLinuxOS dev team.

It can be seen as a whole as the much-loved PCLOS 2007, but fully updated and upgraded.
It is a complete system that can be used as a LiveDVD or it can be installed (from the LiveDVD).

New on this release:
-Fully updated PCLinuxOS 2014 base system
-Based on stable TDE
-A theme switch Zenity script to let the user switch between the more modern theme I use and TDE Classic theme, to please more users.
-A SuperKaramba theme pack
-XBMC media center and wine are new apps included on the DVD

On this LiveDVD:
-Tons of TDE software and major apps like LibreOffice, Firefox and Gimp

Login info (on the LiveDVD):
Regular user:guest    Password:guest
Super user: root    Password:root

System requirement:
A x86 computer with at least 384mb of RAM.
It is a 32bit system, but it can be installed on a 64bit system too.

Download link:
PCLinuxOS_no_TDE_remaster_30avril2014.iso 1.99 GB!bkgRCKpa!HMakiQTlomIlq9I3O-8Ib117XeAOP4qwKo91FDjfFrg

Please note that you will need to install the MEGA Download Manager Firefox (or Iceweasel) plugin to download a file of that size.
If you are unsure about itd, you can uninstall the plugin right after the download.

Md5 Sum:

If you like what you see, you can consider giving some money to the Trinity Desktop Environment project!

Give me your comments!

3.5.12 vs 3.5.13 performance?


I have installed on a Thinkpad X200 (4 Giga RAM) Kubuntu 10.04+
I think trinity 3.5.12 (sudo dpkg -l | grep kde3) gives things like 

"adept-manager-kde3 4:3.5.12-0ubuntu6+r1124765 package manager for KDE3"

Now I have recently installed Lucid+trinity 3.5.13 on a much older
Thinkpad with just 1.5 Giga RAM.

I have the impression that the second installation is much faster, for
example the 

Control panel which I have at the botton of my screen needs ages to
disappear in the first installation but only miliseconds in the second.

Can anybody confirm this (so is a upgrade recommended?)
