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. Some of the suggested changes are below.
This page also lists some yet unresolved and highly visible problems with no workaround.
- 1 Font anti-aliasing
- 2 Missing Reboot and Shutdown
- 3 Broken screen lock
- 4 Colission with SUNWvboxguest
- 5 System Activity dialog is empty
- 6 Right-click on Icon Settings kills plasma
- 7 Konqueror crashes when launched via Run Command
- 8 Dolphin crashes
- 9 Kinfocenter crashes
- 10 nwam-manager is spawned multiple times
Is disabled in a fresh installation. Execute
gnome-appearance-properties and select some better option in Fonts.
Missing Reboot and Shutdown
Broken screen lock
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
When using succesfully built packages in VirtualBox the KDE session startup fails.
This needs to be resolved in the build system.
System Activity dialog is empty
Tracked as 200646. Pressing the default shortcut Ctrl-Esc or running ksysguard should display a list of running processes. This dialog is empty.
Right-click on Icon Settings kills plasma
Put an icon on a panel:
- click Application Launcher
- right-click any application (ex: Web Browser)
- select Add to Panel
Right-clicking the icon on the panel and selecting 'Icon Settings will crash plasma and bring up the debug dialog. Plasma is automatically restarted.
Konqueror crashes when launched via Run Command
Tracked as 201689. Fixed in hg.
Dolphin crashes when run both from command line and menu
Kinfocenter crashes (in rc3 and final 4.3 - I believe it worked before - hajma)
nwam-manager is spawned multiple times
Tracked as 205529. KDE4 session is started with multiple instances of nwam-manager. As a result, systray has multiple nwam-manager icons.
