Trinity 14.0.6 preliminary.
Don't know if it is a feature of ksnapshot or a misconfiguration
somewhere from me, but it is getting absolutely annoying what happens.
I have a website, a document or whatsoever on my screen in full
A4-papersize. Now I want a printout of a small part of it. Call
ksnapshot, choose "region" "new snapshot" and then draw a border around
the desired part. Press "print" and then print it. Bull... I get a
print in landscape, useless and even worse not even the original layout
Stop ksnapshot, restart it and same procedure with again the same
Stop, restart, same procedure but no actual printing, instead I look
into the printer properties. And there, big surprise, landscape was
marked as to be printed BUT all 4 orientations were grayed out, so I
couldn't change that.
Checked in tdeprint the printersettings, nothing wrong, in "instances"
"settings" all 4 orientations were available and portrait was marked as
to be applied in the default printer.
Checked kprinter and of course the settings of tdeprint were there also
But then I had an idea. If I selected in ksnapshot a larger part of the
screen, say more than half A4, what would happen?
Yes, some ugly words from me and there it was: portrait was marked but
still all 4 possibilities grayed out.
So ksnapshot decides how it wants to print and doesn't leave the user a
chance to get a result, that he wants. Utterly bull....
Any suggestion, where I could look to alter this behaviour?
After upgrading to Debian 11 on both of my two systems, upon reboot, I
lost the TDE Display Manager. The login screen defaults to whatever
Debian itself uses and I have been unsuccessful getting the TDE login

Also...during the upgrade, one of the packages it wanted to remove was
binutils, which it did. It left a package binutils-common installed, but
not upgraded. If I attempted to remove binutils-common, it also wanted
to remove numerous Trinity packages.
Is there a fix for these issues??

I have Ctrl+D to continue in recovery mode or type root passwd.
Only one solution, type "killall tdm" to connect to tde-desktop.

/var/log/tdm.log exists but empty.
"info: Cannot open master configuration file /etc/trinity/tdm/tdmdistrc".
tdmdistrc doesn't exist in this folder.
I can login to tde-desktop with lightdm, not with tdm-trinity.
(even after a dpkg-reconfigure tdm-trinity).
Now I have a clear understanding what happens without to be able to repair.
The file /run/user/1000/ICEauthority is :
-rw------- 1 andre andre 205 22 déc. 17:18 ICEauthority
It becomes automatically quickly :
-rw------- 1 root root 205 22 déc. 17:18 ICEauthority,
after I receive the error messages allready indicated,
DCOPserver and /home/andre./.Xauthority not writable :
-rw------- 1 andre andre 59 22 déc. 17:18 .Xauthority
It seems that there is a conflict between two users, root and andre.
Thanks. Bye, cheers, André
Very soon after I started to use the TDE 14.0.11 version I began
receiving DCOP error messages, having the effect of preventing use of
various applications like Firefox and LibreOffice. After online research
and experimentation on my part I discovered that I could solve such
preventions if before opening TDE I ran in a tty as root the following
'dcopserver -- serverid', which returned nothing, then 'dropserver' and
finally again 'dcopserver -- serverid'. This time however that command
returned something like the following:
>From this point on there were no longer any more DCOP error messages. I
had full use of the TDE and various applications until when I next
closed completely the computer.
It is consequently my understanding that running the 'dcopserver'
command is presumably required as part of the initial boot-up. If such
is usually the case I would appreciate knowing what I need to do to have
my computer, named Morcom, do so as well. Can anyone tell me?

Sorry, me again,
Important precisions, I receive these two messages on boot TDE :
1) The following installation problem was detected while tryng to start TDE :
No write access to "/run/user/1000/ICEauthority".
TDE is unable to start.
2) There was an error setting up inter-process communications for TDE.
The message returned by the system was :
could not read network connection list :
Please check that dcopserver program is running !
If I correct :
the write access for "/run/user/1000/ICEauthority",
and read access for "/home/andre/.DCOPserver_debian-room__0"
it works, but after the next boot, I receive the two same messages,
I make the correction again... and next boot, idem...
Thanks for your help. I'm sure that Slavek will give the solution :-)
This is very interesting

kde & kmail-5.15 is buggier than a 10 day old road kill in August. And there
is little help available on the kdepim mailing list. No one seems to know
how its really supposed to work. So far its imported all my mails from the
stretch version, then thrown them away, and I can't keep a list of filter
rules intact more than 48 hours.
