Thanks! I successfully compile and install it on Kubuntu 16.10 - all works well! At last I glad to see my favorite theme Skulpture in KDE5!!! Please post info about this in news on your site http://skulpture.maxiom.de/ for make other Skuplture theme fans happy too! Feb 15 2017
So we got a hope to see port to KDE5 in near future? :) Feb 15 2017
Thanks for so beautiful theme! Can you create QtCurve preset (.qtcurve settings file) for easier installing without compiling from sources? Or your theme will not work without compiling? Sep 01 2016
On Kubuntu (Ubuntu) 13.10 Skulpture package have 2.4 version, but still I can't install it because it conflicting with kde-window-manager :(
I will try to create my own deb package, but seems I must change package name for remove conflict. Oct 08 2013
Here is issue with description why kde skulpture style was deleted from debian: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=671898 Sep 23 2013
Hmm, kde-style-skulpture is removed from Debian (so and from Ubuntu, Kubuntu too) as "unmaintained" at 10 May 2012:
http://packages.qa.debian.org/k/kde-style-skulpture/news/20120510T181231Z.html

Why this is happens and who can give back it into repository? Sep 23 2013
Seems that the problem with kde-window-manager package in KDE 4.11:
$ aptitude show kde-window-manager
Package: kde-window-manager
Breaks: kde-style-skulpture

Maybe there are some incomportables or bugs with new kde, or only packaging issue? Sep 23 2013
Yes, seems that this is issue in packaging, not in skuplture theme, force installing without looking dependencies solve the problem.

I create the issue about dependency problems in Kubuntu 13.10 and Skulpture theme on KDE 4.11 - https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/kde-style-skulpture/+bug/1197261 - please vote all who affected too. Jul 30 2013
Checkbox marks is not visible in Openoffice when using skulpture theme. Here is screenshot: http://wstaw.org/m/2013/07/30/plasma-desktopyi2496.png

And here is screenshot from same comuter with oxygen theme: http://wstaw.org/m/2013/07/30/plasma-desktopyY2496.png

with Cleanlooks theme: http://wstaw.org/m/2013/07/30/plasma-desktopYZ2496.png

Is this issue in skuplture theme?
And how I can fix it? Jul 30 2013
Can't install on Kubuntu KDE 4.11, but works well before on KDE 4.10 or earlier.
When I try to install, it breaks kde-workspace package:

Fork renamed to https://github.com/MurzNN/plasma-runner-pidgin-kde4 Jan 16 2017
Some unsolved problems:
- After click on contact new conversation opens normally, but conversation tab don't get focus - I can't find the way to set focus for conversation via DBus command
- After click on contact - Pidgin conversation window stay in background, I can't find command to move Pidgin conversation window in foreground.

If anybody can help with this - please reply. Jan 16 2017
I create fork of this project https://github.com/MurzNN/kde4-krunner-pidgin with some improvements:
- Add full buddy info - full name and contact id together: Name
- Add info about buddy account: type and login, for see difference between same contact in different accounts. Jan 16 2017
I can't find Pidgin internal dbus command to focus chat window, so I create this one-line command that do this:
wmctrl -lpx | grep Pidgin | grep -v Contact | cut -d' ' -f1 | xargs wmctrl -iR Jan 10 2017
Plugin works, open new tab with contacts, but don't activate chat window, so after clicking I must manually switch to chat window. Can you add command to activate chat window? Jan 10 2017
Here is KDE5 port of Pidgin Krunner plugin: https://github.com/freexploit/plasma-runner-pidgin Jan 10 2017
Solved via installing dev packages:
sudo apt-get install kdelibs5-dev Jan 10 2017
Thanks, this will be very useful for me, but I can't compile on Ubuntu, here is the error:

Seems that problem with broken passwords sync is in missed event/signal after adding/updating password to storage, this is detaily described in comment http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=116886&forumpage=4#c464368

Can anybody investigate the problem and find event that must be sent to Firefox after password is added/updated? May 05 2014
Thanks for updates to KDE Wallet Firefox extension in version 2.3 - I see that you add timestamps and other info into storage, in hope that Passwords Sync issue will be solved.

I do many tests for Passwords Sync and can report that adding timestams is not solve the sync problem :(

But I noticed the strange behavior that may be the source of sync problem, how to reproduce it (I test on Firefox 29):

1. Open clean Firefox profile without KDE Wallet extension.

2. Open Edit » Preferences » Security » Saved passwords window and stay it open (place it on top for always visible on screen),

3. Switch to Firefox browser window and type some site any password and remember it.

You will see that it immediatly appeared in list of "Saved passwords" window. Press "Show passwords".

4. On the same site type another password and press "Update password", you will see that it will be immediatly updated in "Saved passwords" window.


And repeat this steps via KDE Wallet extension enabled:

1. Open clean Firefox profile with KDE Wallet extension enabled.

2. Open Edit » Preferences » Security » Saved passwords window and stay it open (place it on top for always visible on screen),

3. Switch to Firefox browser window and type some site any password and remember it.

You will see that it immediatly appeared in KDE Wallet, but in list of "Saved passwords" window it will not appeared. But if you type in "search" something and clear search, you will see new record. Press "Show passwords".

4. On the same site type another password and press "Update password", you will see that it immediatly appeared in KDE Wallet, in "Saved passwords" window you will see old password. Type something in "search" and clean field, you will see that password is updated.


Result of this test is, as far as I understand, that KDE Wallet extensions don't send events "added new password / password updated" to Firefox core, and Firefox didn't understand that passwords are changed, and see this only via manual refresh of password list (open-close "Saved Passwords" window, search in it, etc).
And missing events "added new password / password updated" can be the reason for broken sync.


What do you think about described test and results? I think that solution of KDE Wallet passwords sync is near, we need to find event/signal to send for Firefox after insert/update password.

Can you investigate why password list not updated immediatly after updating KDE Wallet?

Can you find the event/signal that your extension must send to Firefox for tell him that password is added/updated? May 05 2014
If sync subsystem is buggy, why it works so stable with integrated password storage?

Maybe the problem is with detecting last changes in sync process?

I see that KWallet didn't show last update timestamp for passwords, and maybe it is not stored.

So maybe when Sync function try to understand which passwords are changed and need to be synced, it receives empty list. And if new item is created, it is synced with separate process "new record". In result wie got new records synced normally, byt old+updated records - not synced.

This is only my guess, but maybe problem is somewhere near :) Jan 28 2014
When I use Firefox KDE Wallet extension, i see that passwords sync is works (I can't tell that it not work at all), but in result I often see, that not all passwords are synced:
Very often when I store new password in work computer, it missed in home computer, and vice versa.

Is any other extension users see this problem too, or this problem is only on my configuration?

If yes, maybe you find direct situations in which sync is not working? Jan 28 2014
Oh, sorry, yes - Chrome save passwords in Kwallet via Binary Data for each site, and this works out-of-the-box.

If auto-fill master password from KDE Wallet is not possible in firefox - it's bad, so one way is like in current extension. Jan 28 2014
Hello gmolina!

Thanks for useful extension! But current version still have issues with password sync (not all passwords are synced).
Seems that this is not easy to solve, so maybe you can do a light version of KDE Wallet password integration extension, that stores in KWallet only master password from Firefox password storage?

This is the way how work Chrome with KWallet - it store only key in kwallet and encrypt the data with it.

Can you tell me, is it techincally possible to get master key password from KWallet and unlock automatically firefox password storage? Jan 27 2014

I have troubles with resizing my photo collection.

For example, I have 3 photos with different aspect ratio - 1024x768, 1024x600, 768x1024, 1024x1024.

And I want resize all of it to maximum 600x600 pixels and keep aspect ratio, so new sizes must be: 600x450, 600x351, 450x600, 600x600.

But I can't find the way how I can do this with converseen.

If I select some image for preview, set checkbox "Mantain aspect ratio" and try to set 600x600 in "Scale image" editbox, it always change other value to current image aspect ratio. So I can't set 600x600.

If I didn't select any image, it sets to 600x0 or 0x600.

I use version 0.6.4 in Ubuntu.

How can I solve this problem and do the resize with described rules?

As I think, good solution will be add checkbox "Link aspect with current image" and maintain aspect ratio on type only when this checkbox is checked. Or maybe you can provide better solution. Jan 31 2014

Thanks, I have find the name for this key - in my system Ubuntu 13.04 Lenovo FN button detected as XF86WakeUp.

But it is not want to work as modifier key, I can't bind any hotkey combination with it.
For example, when I do:
xmodmap -e "keycode 151 = Meta_L"

pressing FN send the Meta_L keypress, but when I try to press FN+S, it shows only FN keypress.

How can I solve this problem? Maybe I must convert this key to "modifier key type" via some command? Jul 26 2013
I want to setup FN key on my Lenovo notebook. When I start ksuperkey -d, it shows:
Intercepted key event 2, key code 151
Intercepted key event 3, key code 151

But in ksuperkey I must setup key name, not code.
How I can get key name from code?
If you know solution, please update FAQ for your app.
Jul 20 2013
I have found other problem, ksuperkey may not work when in KDE on System Settings / Keyboard / Advanced in group Alt/Win behavior this item is selected:
Meta is mapped to Win keys

If I remove this checkbox, all works well. Jul 02 2013
For quick install on Ubuntu and Kubuntu you can use this PPA: https://launchpad.net/~mehanik/+archive/ksuperkey

Install via commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mehanik/ksuperkey
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ksuperkey Jul 02 2013
Oh, sorry for the noise, the problem is with .Xmodmap file in which I remap this button to F13, removing this file solves the problem!

So now all works well!
Many thanks for this app! Jan 09 2013
Many thanks for this app! It will very useful, but don't want work on my Kubuntu 12.10 - it starts normally, but when I press Win - Alt-F1 action is not executed. Is this app have any debug mode for checking where can be the problem? Jan 09 2013

While KGTK for Kubuntu 12.04 didn't exist in ppa, I have found PPA with patched firefox for Kubuntu 12.04 users: https://launchpad.net/~alexey-ivanov/+archive/firefox-kde Jun 04 2012
Because Kubuntu remove native support for KDE file dialogs in Firefox (more info here: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=MTA3MjI ) many users searching the way to solve this problem and got KDE file dialogs back.
So will be good if anybody can provide ppa with kgk packages, because install from ppa is very easier that compiling from sources.
In launchpad there are already exist KGTK package team: https://launchpad.net/~kgtk/+archive/ppa but version is too old. Is there any problems to compile updated version for Kubuntu 12.04? Jun 03 2012
Kubuntu 12.04 remove support for this package: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=MTA3MjI Jun 03 2012

Problem solved after removing plasma configs and creating default settings: removed ~/.kde/share/config/plasma* files and restarted plasma. Jan 05 2012
I also got the same problem on Kubuntu 11.10 after installing KDE 4.8 RC from ppa, and it isn't solved with latest upgrades.
Veromix plasmoid works normally via plasmoidviewer app, but isn't work when I try to add it into panel or desktop. The error is:
Could not create a python ScriptEngine for the Veromix widget.

Can anybody tell where can be the problem and how can I try to solve this problem? Jan 04 2012

Can you add option for user switching without locking desktop?
As I see, locking do automatically, so for implement this, after switching to user you can send the unlock command:
dbus-send --type=method_call --dest=org.freedesktop.ScreenSaver /ScreenSaver org.freedesktop.ScreenSaver.SetActive boolean:false

I do this for me via ugly hack the sources, but will be good to see this in core. Nov 23 2011

As alternative, you can use kwallet with empty password, so it will not ask password at start every time. But this is big security hole.

Another variant is to use akonadi mail accounts, so plasmamailchecker connects directly to akonadi and don't need the password. Jul 09 2011
