Bought laptop recently which came with Windows OS. Few days of working on it and it made me realize why I even switched to Linux on my desktop so I decided to install Slackware on my laptop too.
First question, probably not related to Slackware as much with KDE but still. Does anyone know how to get rid of this... I guess dummy widget that makes those weird borders
that don't make much sense on KDE.
I didn't do anything out of order to get them, it was clean, full installation of Slackware. When I started KDE there was already one widget running and I closed it. Everything was fine. I restarted computer, started KDE again and I got those borders.
After remembering that I had same problem on my desktop and that one day it just got resolved I thought it might be connected to the widgets, so I added a widget, exited KDE and started it again and problem solved, no borders. Closing widget and restarting KDE results in those borders again. Now I'm interested if I really NEED to have some kind of widget to get rid of them or I actually can have nice clean desktop?
. How to get shutdown option in KDE's Kickoff's Application Launcher?
I tried searching for the problem on internet but most of the solutions were either to run some commands as root in console or to make a script that would do that for me.
Someone mentioned that the problem was in Session Management but I can't see anything there out of order. I have ticked "Offer shutdown options".
Someone said that maybe I don't have the privileges, and although some of you will say that I'm not supposed to do it, I ran KDE as root too to check it and I didn't have the shutdown option there either.
Since I installed Slackware using current image file thought that maybe someone who made it forgot something considering that current image has about 2.5 gigs less than the Slackware-13.37 image file so I dl'ed 13.37 too, reinstalled everything and got everything the same.
Since it works fine on my desktop
, although it wouldn't make much sense is it possible that for some weird reason it's because it's installed on laptop?
Maybe I'm just forgetting something so I'd be grateful if someone can point me to some slackBuild/package/option that I maybe forgot that I did a long time ago to get those options on my desktop computer.
I'm not in line of business of fixing computers but I do get requests from acquaintances who use Windows and now since I have laptop I can "flash" around them with Linux OS, how easy it actually is to use, all programs free, pretty looking, no worries about viruses, oh and shutting down?
"Easy", alt+F2, konsole, su, root password, poweroff and that's it
Kind of kills the mood
