kde apps under XFCE

Posted 03-20-2013 at 04:05 PM by davetesc

Having to resort to using XFCE and LXDE as KDE ( my favourite ) is a bit heavy for my no so new laptop, I still use kaffeine, kate and kwrite, this is normally fine but after installing mint14 XFCE and then the above trio of kde apps I found that kaffeine failed with "Cannot open the SQLite database" and both kate and kwrite would crash when I clicked on the open file button.

Running kaffeine from the cli gave a load of errors relating to permission errors in .kde folder....

Even though I love Linux I have these moments when I think, just as I get somewhere I'm back to the start.

Each time I think I'm getting somewhere I try to do something new and realise how little I know!!!

Dongle not working

Posted 09-01-2012 at 03:39 PM by davetesc

Just updated to mint13KDE and as with all previous updates since mint 10 huawei e160 dongle won't work. This is across the board on all distros I've tried in last couple of years. Tried allsorts of fixes but have now found sakis3g script, this works as long as I boot without dongle plugged in.
