Konsole is started as normal user. In it is invoked the
midnight-commander. Keyboard-navigation and -keypresses are flawlessly
executed. The mouse-cursor moves if desired all over the screen.
Clicking *outside* the console starts the envisaged action on other
files, but *inside* the mc-konsole nothing happens at all when clicking.
gpm, konsole and mc all 3 are [ root:root 100755 ].
When I however start the console, then su to root and invoke mc
everything works properly! 
Where else should/could I look for the apparently missing
user-permissions? Thanks.

KTTS - Does it work for anyone?

I filed a bug:

I can't get KTTSMgr to find any voices on two different installations on 
Stretch or two different installations on openSUSE 42.1. If it works for you, 
please tell me what you're running it on, and if you can, what I might be 
overlooking WRT to setup to make it work.

TDEMacro missing while compiling tqtinterface


    I was compiling trinity from git. First TQT, and now I have a problem with 

CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:27 (include):
  include could not find load file:

    The variables are taken from the "How to Build TDE Core Modules" in the 
official documentation, only that the prefix is /opt/trinity-v4.

sound in stretch on HDMI only works in VLC, analog only elsewhere

Via manual selection in VLC, which offers about 20+ devices to choose from, 
sound via HDMI works. However, system sounds and Youtube in FF only work via 
the analog pin jack. TDE control center makes no HDMI device offering. Anyone 
here know the secret to making HDMI default sound source everywhere?

Each of the following in /etc/modprobe.d/local.conf had no effect:
options snd_hda_intel index=0,1
options snd_hda_intel index=1,0
options snd index=0
options snd index=1
options snd_hda_intel index=0
options snd_hda_intel index=1

In a similar vein, instructions on 
either kept analog sound working, but killed HDMI/VLC sound, or had no 
apparent effect.

Instructions on 
various fail as user. As root, sound doesn't work at all. Doing python 
produces nothing that looks helpful, mainly confirming that cmdline tools 
already have shown. output:

Various sound related packages installed:

Shift+arrow in Konsole

Hi all,

recently I encountere a problem with using Konsole. For some reason using Shift+<arrow key> 
stopped working in Emacs. At first I thought Emacs is at fault but a quick investigation revealed 
that using Shift+<arrow> simply does not work in Konsole. With google's help I found a solution 
[1], which was to edit keytab file found in /opt/trinity/share/apps/konsole/. An interesting fact 
is that I found five files in that directory, but on my system Konsole is using a key set 
named "XFree (4.x.x)" and that set is not found in the above directory. I scanned the whole disk 
for files ending with *keytab but found only these five files in konsole directory. Does anyone 
know where is the definition of "XFree (4.x.x)" key set? I'd like to fix the problem by editing 
that set but for now I have edited a set named "XFree (3.x.x)"

font/UI sizes in VLC tiny

Does anyone know if VLC's UI can be made to obey Trinity's font size 
settings? I have font size set to 14 in qtconfig (~/.config/Trolltech.conf), 
and QT's own settings window has fonts same size as Trinity's size 14 fonts. 
VLC's fonts are only about half as big as Trinity's:
