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?
I just noticed that on daedalus sftp:/...-URLs do not work any more. Konqueror is stuck with a rotating circle and eventually times out. fish:/...-URLs work, but calculating the disk size of remote directories is kind of buggy, e.g. 22GB are counted as 9GB.
Did somebody see this, too?
Please do not email me anything that you are not comfortable also sharing with the NSA, CIA ...
I've been using an EFI (not UEFI) system for years to run OpenSuSE Linux (since I have no
Windoze on my machine I saw no reason to fool with UEFI, which had teething problems when
I got my motherboard). Now I'm trying to install Ubuntu 20 LTS on a separate drive, but
the installer is complaining about EFI and boot partitions. I've searched for help, but
all I get is UEFI stuff. I don't want to reset my BIOS because then I wouldn't be able
to boot back to my old system if I have problems with Ubuntu.
Is anyone here interested in giving me a helping hand?

I 'm not sure if this is rather a linux or a TDE question.
I've got a new Canon Camera. When I connect it to my PC with an USB cable, it
is mounted as mass storage (wich is very good).
It has two SD cards that appear as two directories in a Konqueror window. So
far so good. However, this window says "system:/media/Unknown Device
1-12:1.0" and it is nowhere to be found, not in /media/<user>, not in /mnt,
mount also gives me nothing (or I don't know what to look for).
So I can't unmount it, I have to turn the camera off. I don't think it's a
real problem as the SD cards are exfat formated and I check that nothing's
being read/writen, but I'd prefer to unmount.
If the system can mount this "Unknown Device 1-12:1.0", it must be somewhere,
I'm not looking for a way to open the camera in Digikam or so. Coying the
files with Konqueror is just what I want, but I'd like a way to know the
mounting point. I got the USB IDs so I was thinking of writing some udev
rule. lsusb returns Bus 001 Device 012: ID 04a9:32f5 Canon, Inc. but there is
no 012 or 12 in /dev/bus/usb...
since yesterday I am getting an error that the station can not be found. It
worked in the morning for some time and it stopped now again.
Is someone using kweather and having similar issues?
Gmail is changing, yet again, so that we cannot use third-party apps. In the
past, I have had problems using Kmail with Google stuff, but I changed my
account settings to accept "less secure" apps, third-party apps, whatever,
and then it was okay again.
I finally got round to my Gmail account. I don't really use it much, as I hate
Google, but it has been useful to have a Gmail account for some things. I
wanted to go into my account and make whatever changes were necessary to make
it work, but now I find that I cannot even load Gmail's login pages, account
management pages, etc. I can only load help pages and the like. This is true
(so far) for every browser I have tried. I have tried enabling all cookies,
turning off private browsing, etc.; but my attempts to connect are treated as
though I am behind a proxy even when I'm not, or that I am a bot, or
something like that.
I only use Gmail for "business", by which I mean stuff like shopping, for
places like Best Buy and Tiger Direct; since I know that I will get tracked
to death there anyway. I have been trying to track down all my important
business that uses Gmail, to change them to my Zoho email account, until I
can figure out some better, more permanent solution; but I can't even
remember all that stuff for which I once put down Gmail as my email address,
and haven't thought about it again in a few years.
Is there any way to configure Kmail to work with Gmail (i.e., using 2FA or
OAuth2, etc.) without having to get into Gmail itself? because, you see, I
can't even login on a Gmail page, much less get into my account. And yet,
until at least the end of this month, I can still receive Gmail.
I imagine some others out there in the TDE universe must also have to confront
this issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
It didn't use to, right? What changed? Kdelibs3 doesn't require it.

Not sure if this is a strictly TDE problem or not, but I did spend some time
trying to restart or reconfigure the sound system. (TCC / Sound &
Multimedia / Sound System)
When I first got this machine, I did have some problems getting it to work
without pulseaudio, as I prefer alsa. Since then, it has been a battle of
unseen forces, with pulseaudio and alsa apparently competing for control of
The thing is, music files play just fine (using audacious); online radio
usually plays just fine (using qmmp), although I sometimes have to go into
settings and enable pulseaudio. (It will buffer up, then the stream dies.)
But usually this is just a bit of playing round, then it works.
My videos are a constant headache, though. I don't watch them much, but when I
do sometimes want to watch something, suddenly I don't have sound, and it
doesn't seem to matter what I use, pulseaudio or alsa. Also, when I had
similar problems before, it only took some configuration, then it worked
again, and I never gave it a thought after that.
This problem keeps popping up, with no apparent rhyme or reason to it. My
videos won't play sound. Doesn't matter if I use smplayer or vlc (which are
my two main programs for videos). It used to be that some videos would only
play on vlc, some on smplayer. Other programs were also hit-and-miss. Now no
videos will play sound, on any program.
I've also tried nearly every other program available for videos. I've
downloaded all codecs that seem to be required. (I save downloaded packages,
and use dpkg to install, then just upgrade periodically; so I know what I
used before in my working configuration.) I've done this time and again, in
previous installations, and usually no problems after getting everything set
up. With this new laptop, the sound in the videos disappears sometimes with
every new reboot.
The only major change in my system is that I bought a new toy; a Focusrite
interface to attach musical instruments (guitars, keyboards, microphones,
etc.) to my laptop via a USB interface. (I used to have a line-in jack in my
old desktop, so I just plugged in via a headphone amplifier.) It took some
messing round, but I got this device working, so I can play through my
speakers, or record to the machine using audacity. Sometimes I have to make
changes to make sure that audacity isn't claiming the sound system.
However, I have shut off everything else that could interfere. No active music
files, the Focusrite audio interface is shut off, etc., etc. And still, I
have no sound in any of my videos; doesn't matter what format, doesn't matter
what program I use.
I would guess that it is a TDE problem, since I booted into xfce, and the
sound works fine in that desktop. However, I don't like to spend time there,
and don't want to use it except for testing.
Anybody have a clue about what is wrong? As I said, it is all rather
hit-and-miss. Sometimes the sound works, sometimes not. My installation and
programs installed or used, etc., have remained the same since December 2021.
I've been running the same programs on other machines for at least 15 years
now, so I like to think that I know how to track down and resolve most
issues, but this one just keeps returning.
Sorry for the length, but I wanted to include all possible details that could
be relevant. Please feel free to trim in the responses. Any help will be
Good Day Everyone!
I wonder how I can find out which key combination prints a specific
character, generally, I mean when the character is not printed on the

the keys to get it.
