Als gewone taken onwennig zijn

Als de Plasma werkomgeving nieuw voor u is zullen waarschijnlijk veel alledaagse taken onwennig aanvoelen. Sommige dingen zijn totaal nieuwe concepten, andere dingen zijn gewoon net iets anders dan u verwacht. Er zijn veel screencasts over hoe u Plasma-taken kunt uitvoeren op deze How-To pagina.

Hoe kan ik extra KDE-software installeren?

Installing software on your computer, whether with KDE SC or GNOME, largely depends on your distribution's software management system. Please consult with your distribution for more information. Install KDE software has more details.

Hoe installeer ik drivers voor wifi / videokaarten / andere hardware?

Installing hardware drivers for networking or video is a task that most distributions take care of. Different distributions use different tools for configuring hardware. Please consult with your distribution first for more information. A good way is by asking other users on chat channels.

Bestandsbeheer 2.0

Dolphin is uw nieuwe bestandsbeheerder, maar het uiterlijk en gebruik ervan is erg anders dan bij oude bestandsbeheerders. Leer hoe u voorbeeldweergaven kunt bekijken, geef uzelf snelle toegang tot de mappen die u het meest gebruikt en kies hoeveel informatie u over uw bestanden wil zien. Dit alles en meer vindt u in deze bestandsbeheer tutorial

Een meer traditionele bestandsbeheerder gebruiken

Konqueror is primarily a web interface, but it can also function as a traditional file manager. If this is your preference, in System Settings, go to the Advanced tab and click on File Associations. In the list of Known Types, go to the inode/directory type. In the General tab at the right side of the window, select Konqueror in the Application Preference Order and click on the Up button until it is at the top. Click on Apply to save the changes.

Using Removable Drives

Mounting the drive

What does "Mounting" the drive mean? Think of it as opening it for reading. Similarly, umount is like closing the book.

Most distros don't, in their default settings, automatically mount removable drives. There are two main ways of dealing with this.

  • Using the Device Notifier - click on the device name and you will be shown relevant options, one of which will be Open with File Manager. This opens Dolphin with the contents of the device listed.
  • Mounting in Dolphin - if you already have Dolphin open you will see the new device appear in the Places panel. Click on that and you will see the contents of the device.
  • If you prefer the drive to be automatically mounted, you can now do this by going to System Settings -> Hardware Section -> Removable Devices and check Enable automatic mounting of removable storage media.
The first option "Only automatically mount removable media that has been manually mounted before" may be a more secure option than mounting all removable media

If you choose to automount, remember that you still need to umount it (close it) before removing it. This is the equivalent of Windows software saying "safely remove". In Device Notifier you will see Icon-media-eject.png. In Dolphin, a right-click will offer you the same icon with "Safely Remove" and the device's name.

Audio disks can be played without mounting. Use your favourite disk-playing application

Umounting the drive

Again, you have two main possibilities.

  • Use the device notifier. Instead of the plug icon that you saw before, there will now be an up-arrow icon similar to that shown on VHS and DVD players. That will "safely remove" the drive. However, it will not eject it. Always wait a few seconds after using this, as buffers are flushed and you want to be sure that it has finished writing.
  • In Dolphin, look for the name of the device in the Places panel. Right-click on it and you will see the Eject icon. Again, take care not to remove the drive too quickly.

Opening an empty CD tray

Usually you use a hardware button to do this, but if that is not possible you can create a link to a script to do it for you. You will find details of this on this talk page

Renaming Multiple Files

There are times when you need to rename a large number of files or folders at the same time. This is often referred to as "batch renaming," and can be accomplished a number of ways in KDE.

Met Dolphin

Dolphin heeft een mogelijkheid om meerdere bestanden te hernoemen door ze te nummeren, hoewel deze functionaliteit momenteel beperkt is en alleen nuttig is in bepaalde situaties. Een nuttige toepassing zou het hernoemen van een reeks foto's kunnen zijn. Hier staat hoe dat moet

Met KRename

KRename has the ability to rename large numbers of files based on many different criteria, including search and replace, file properties, mp3 & ogg metadata, and many others.

KRename can be found in the Kickoff menu in the Utilities section. It may be called "Bulk Rename".

Configuration Help


Volledig KDE op kleine schermen (zoals netbooks)

  • De Plasma Netbook Interface is aangepast om het meeste uit de beschikbare ruimte te halen en configureert automatisch het venstermanagement om applicaties de volledige ruimte te geven.
  • De pagina over KWin heeft tips voor het verkleinen van vensterdecoraties en fonts, en het uitzetten van tooltips in KMail.



  • Occasionally, when something is not working well, you may be told that you need to set up an Environmental Variable. Here's how to do it
