Parent: KDE on OpenSolaris

When installing one of the latest development builds of KDE4 on OpenSolaris (2009.06), there's a number of changes to do to make the use of the desktop more convenient.


Font anti-aliasing

Is disabled in a fresh installation. Execute gnome-appearance-properties and select some better option in Fonts.


Missing Reboot and Shutdown

Tracked as 186198. A simple workaround is available. This is also tracked in OpenSolaris as 1166.


Broken xlock

Tracked as 184465. xlock can be used as a workaround. It could also be convenient to undefine the Ctrl+Alt+L shortcut and use System Settings -> Input Actions to redefine this shortcut to xlock.


Colission with SUNWvboxguest

When built and/or executed in a VirtualBox instance, there's a collision with the SUNWvboxguest package (VirtualBox guest additions). While building, this results in following sort of build error in FOSSqt: Undefined first referenced symbol in file XDamageDestroy /usr/lib/libGL.so XDamageCreate /usr/lib/libGL.so XDamageQueryExtension /usr/lib/libGL.so XDamageQueryVersion /usr/lib/libGL.so When using a succesfully built packages in VirtualBox the session startup fails.

This needs to be resolved in the build system.


System Activity dialog is empty

Pressing the default shortcut Ctrl-Esc or running ksysguard should display a list of running processes. This dialog is empty.
