and select some better option in Fonts.
Akonadi seems misconfigured
After login an akonadi error window is shown. You can get rid of the errors by calling
kwriteconfig --file kres-migratorrc --group Migration --key Enabled --type bool false
although a patch would be better.
Missing Reboot and Shutdown
Broken screen lock
the below information is no not valid with current builds, but the kcheckpass binary has bad permissions so unlocking still fails. Just do
pfexec chmod +s /opt/kde4/lib/kde4/libexec/kcheckpass
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.
To disable default shortcut:
System Settings -> Global Keyboard Shortcuts -> Run Command Interface -> "Lock Session" (remove the shortcut)
To enable Ctrl+Alt+L as Input Action to spawn xlock:
System Settings -> Input Actions right-click the left pane -> New -> Global Shortcut -> Command/URL Trigger -> define shortcut Action -> Command/URL -> xlock
