KDE4 Issues

  • No admin button in system settings
  • GTK-QT not working, Firefox looks awful
    • installed gtk-qt-engine-kde4 and it appears in system settings, but has no effect on firefox, thunderbird, gimp, etc.
    • Other have this problem no solutions
    • Found that settings must be applied as root in system settings (see above), pidgin and gimp look right, but Firefox and Thunderbird are still in 1995 grey sqaure
  • Firefox cannot properly set helper applications (ktorrent, okular, etc)
  • Cannot set khotkeys for media keys on logitech keyboard
    • khotkeys is "in a bit of a broken state" no known workarounds
  • Dolphin has no "Open Terminal here" option an icon can be added to the toolbar
  • Amarok crashes every time I run it (need to compile amarok 2.0)
  • Startup sound starts playing fine, and then gets cutoff
    • Phonon sometimes gives weird sound failing message
  • Surround sound does not work at all. Conflicting instructions on how to set this up, but no settings in KDE4 anywhere that I can see
  • Kaffeine and Flash appear to be stealing Xine from each other
    • (Kaffeine is working on a KDE4 release coming soon. Dragon player doesn't work/has no settings)
  • Flash randomly stops working in Firefox. It will start out fine, and then after a bit will only show grey boxes where flash should be. 64bit thing? Why would it do this? It seems this is a problem only with the official ubuntu firefox package. The mozilla package works fine
  • Dolphin has no right-click extract options ark can't handle this?
  • KDE tries to start applications I had running on logout every time I logout. I do not want it to do this!
  • The latest Kopete no longer works with google talk Others have this problem Pidgin works fine
  • Konversation opens links in some strange Gnome "Web Browser", even though I have specified an absolute path to Firefox in System Settings>Default Applications
  • Numlock unsets every restart!
  • There is no way to hide systray icons
  • There is no 'show desktop' icon on the kicker. Can I add one? Where?


  • Hide cursor when zoomed in
  • Ability to close windows when running the Expose-like "Present Windows"
