It would be helpful to have some detail about the mount workarounds - fstab examples and/or hal edits --annew 19:33, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

Autohide should be updated. 4.2 is released and we can now autohide panels.


I changed the formatting several places: Most web addresses are now hidden, and the two command lines have been indented to make them stand out.

I also modified the text a few places:

  • Auto-hide Panels: added a note on how to do it i 4.3
  • Obtain network access behind Fritzbox routers: The bug is reported as fixed - the text now reflects this.
  • Show the application name instead of the description in the K - menu: Text now has a short mention of the Kickoff Menu Style and how to change to Classic Style.

I am unsure about the bluetooth section. Is it still correct? --Claus chr 27 September 2009

I don't know, and there seems to be no-one on #kde at the moment that can tell me. I'll try to find out.--annew 12:10, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

I'm puzzled by a couple of things on this page. In the kcontrol paragraph, it says "Included, at least in KDE 4.2.1". I didn't put that there, and systemsettings has been included since 4.0. I'm inclined to replace that with a comment pointing to the icon for systemsettings, so that it's easily recognised. What do you think?--annew 12:10, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

The other thing that puzzles me is the reference to kpersonalizer. In 7 years of using KDE I've not come across this. Is/Was it distro-specific? Do you know anything about it? --annew 12:10, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

I agree, that these section are odd. I think, You should definitely correct the section on kcontrol. I haven't come across kpersonalizer either and know nothin about it. --Claus chr


The section on Drag'n'Drop claims, that if you drop an image on the desktop, you get three options: Previewer, PhotoFrame or icon. When I try this I only get the latter two. Is this a distro thing? I tested it with SUSE 11.2 Milestone 8 and KDE 4.3.1. --Claus chr 6 November 2009

It's possible, of course. I'll try to find out from the Fedora packagers. --annew 13:14, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
I'm told that it's very likely a matter of whether you have kdeplasma-addons installed. I'd better add that. Thanks for pointing it out.--annew 19:53, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
I made the change, but now the supposition is being questioned. I'll watch the thread and if I get any explanation I'll post it here and update the page. --annew 10:46, 7 November 2009 (UTC)
There are no threads on this page yet.
