kmail crash on tde-14, NM backend error

upgraded my debian wheezy to r14 about a month ago with no problems. after
a couple of hardware related crashes  (now fixed) I lost my kmail. trying
to run it from console I get the following message:
[TDE NM Backend ERROR]
Attempting to access the network-manager VPN service returned:
org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name
org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.VPN.Plugin was not provided by any .service
[kcrash] TDECrash: Application 'kmail' crashing...
ERROR: Communication problem with kmail, it probably crashed.
I have tried to reinstall as much of nm and tde as possible, can't shake
the error. any aiedas?
thanks in advance,

Trinity mirrors?

Hello all,

This week end I again tried some install (trying to build a "video editing 
machine" around KdenLive and LightWorks - faily impressed by the later) and 
could not install Trinity (404 on one of the main repositories).

This made me think we need mirrors. While I can imagine not many could mirror 
everything, maybe some could mirror TDE at least for one distribution.

What are the requirements (here I mean disk space)? Of course the next 
question is traffic but this I would have to look were I am hosted.

Have a nice day,

Fault in font in message body in KMail

KMail on TDE on Wheezy, all fully updated.

Because my husband had an eye operation today I wanted to enlarge everything 
in KMail for him.  I cannot enlarge the text in the message body.  After 
about ten tries the font changed from serif to sans-serif, but that is all.  
When I change the message body setting, the headers change, be they long or 
short - but he doesn't want to read those.  The text of the email remains 
stubbornly tiny.

The date in the message list also fails to change font.  The rest changes!

I have tried to have everything fully updated, but am getting:

Some progress on FreeBSD 10.1

Hi all!

At last I found some time to try compiling TDE on FreeBSD - and I have a question, too :-)

First of all, I manged to compile tqt3 using gcc47 and as fas as I can tell all provided testprograms
(example/ and tutorial/) are working as expected, just "examples/thread" ends up non-responsive. I
have not tried gcc48.

What I did not get right:
* I failed to set the correct compiler, so I had to add a symlink from g++47 -> g++ and gcc47 -> gcc
* I had to add "-thread" to configure, otherwise the build fails (debian: both "-thread" and "-no-thread"
builds succeed)
* I had to add "LD_LIBRARY_PATH=<...>/tqt3/lib", otherwise the build fails because "tquic" misses it's libriaries.
* some build options like OpenGL support etc.

So my questions are:
* Is there a way to set the compiler gp "g++47" and "gcc47" ?
* What are the build options for the current debian build? "configure" gives me this list:

Build type:    freebsd-g++

Configuration .......  nocrosscompiler minimal-config small-config medium-config large-config
full-config styles tools kernel widgets dialogs iconview workspace inputmethod network canvas table
xml sql release dll thread largefile stl system-mng system-jpeg system-png png no-glibmainloop gif

PCH support ......... no
IPv6 support ........ no

Preliminary-stable-builds: new platforms and new distribution

Hi all,

I have for you some informations about alternative apt 
source 'preliminary-stable-builds'.

1) Because the release of Jessie as a new stable series is approaching, I 
extended the platforms for which are packages built. Besides usual amd64, 
i386, armel and armhf.

  a) mips => 100% done
  b) powerpc => due to a technical problem with qemu-user are not built
  c) arm64 => 100% done - someone has such hardware? We are ready :)

2) On the user wish I added build for Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty) on PowerPC 
platform (Ubuntu Ports) => 100% done.

3) Finally, preliminary packages for upcoming Ubuntu 15.04 (Vivid) are 
available - the usual platforms amd64 and i386.

And, of course, are continually updated packages :)

New install, one icon not working

Good afternoon. I've recently had to reinstall my work laptop, and
rather than try to make Windows work again, I was given permission to
run Linux.

Debian Wheezy, TDE 14.

Everything installed cleanly, and works. There is only one thing I've
found that is a problem, the Network Manager icon in the system tray
is not full sized, it's maybe 4 pixels square.


That's a screen-grab of my system tray, showing the microscopic icon
for Network Manager between the screen size and VLC cone.

I've tried re-adding it, same size. If I run XFCE, the icon shows up just fine.

PCLinuxOS Trinity Live CD


As you know, disagreements we may have had, but I have always tried to give 
credit where credit was due.

At my local Linux Users Group meeting on Saturday, someone was wanting help to 
get Linux on his oldish laptop.  Well, his father's.  A refugee from XP.  He 
had tried various versions/flavours of Ubuntu without success - they just 
wouldn't install.  

He expressed a definite preference for somehow getting Ubuntu on.  And I had 
an Ubuntu + TDE Live CD with me.

So, TDE to the fore.  I rushed to supply a Live/Install CD before anyone else.  
I fished out my Ubuntu + 14 and your PCLinuxOS + 14 with a view to giving him 
both to try.  Exegnu was out because of multimedia etc.  But Ubuntu was 64 
bit.  So that left yours.  I said that I understood it had been expressly 
intended for older machines, so I thought that there was a high chance that 
it would both install OK and then run properly.

I handed it to him, but said sorry, it isn't Ubuntu.  My Ubuntu + TDE live CD 
is 64 bit and I assume that you need 32 bit.  He confirmed this, and took the 
PCLinuxOS CD.  Someone else was still looking for possible Ubuntu CDs or 
other offerings, but somewhat idly he started to install your CD, expecting 
it to fail as everything else had, by when he would have other offerings to 

It installed.  No problem.  One minor glitch.  He accidentally installed the 
wrong keyboard - goodness only knows what it was! - and had to start again.  
No other problems.  It Just Worked.  By half way through he was saying that

Re: Translate TDE?

I'm also asking about translation technical details. The thing is in
TDE R14, which added new useful options but also overflown my
"pi***ing-off" limit of English captions in Polish language
environment. So I decided to do something with it in my free time, at
least in tdebase, and grabbed tde-i18n with Git (over 1GB), then deleted
everything except tde-i18n-pl folder. Now I have PO files which I can
mess with KBabel.
And I have two questions about translations:
1. I'm looking in "fuzzy" or missing translations (Uncertain or missing
translations in KBabel). If they're missing, the thing is simple,
complete it. But sometimes the translation is marked "fuzzy" and looks
wrong. Example: Line 1199 in
English: "Allows you to choose a different icon for the TDE menu."
Polish: "Allows to choose background for TDE menu."
What to do, correct it?
2. What to do with "&" captions? Use the same letter if is present in

He probably meant how to switch to TDM.


To do this, follow the instructions on this page:

But, try tdm-trinity or tdm as a name, instead of lightdm.

I personnaly don't use TDM, because it has been plain unreliable for me on R14 nightly builds, but if it does the job for you, then use it!

To get TDE to run better on the Raspberry Pi, I recommend you to lower the graphic memory to something like 32mb or 48mb, so that the rest of the systtem has more ram available. You can do this by typing raspi-config at the shell.

Hope it works!

Thanks Alexandre for the tips...works great here, so far...

Now I guess I should ask you how patient are you, with TDE on the Slowberry Pi :)
Also, overclock to 1000mhz (turbo mode) is almost necessary.

I only intend to stream movies to my TV, and maybe web-pages.  Works good for that.  I need to read up on that Omxplayer, and look for pause, and stop.
I was in a hurry to leave the house and had to use a KILL.

**Ubuntu** 14.10 and then TDE on a Raspberry Pi???
