I have run into an issue with the "System Tray" widget after updating Plasma 5 "latest" build today.
It says
Code:

Error loading QML file: file:///usr/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.plasma.private.systemtray/contents/ui/main.qml:386:19: Type ExpandedRepresentation unavailable
file:///usr/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.plasma.private.systemtray/contents/ui/ExpandedRepresentation.qml:134:9: PlasmoidPopupsContainer is not a type

Weird error after upgrading ktown this morning

Just FYI, after running slackpkg+ to upgrade AleinBOB's ktown kde/plasma to 5.18.1 this morning, I got this error in the system tray and no applet icons were displayed:

Code:

Error loading QML file: file:///usr/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.plasma.private.systemtray/contents/ui/main.qml:386:19: Type ExpandedRepresentation unavailable
file:///usr/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.plasma.private.systemtray/contents/ui/ExpandedRepresentation.qml:134:9: PlasmoidPopupsContainer is not a type

Renaming
Code:

/usr/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.plasma.private.systemtray/contents/ui/PlasmoidPopupsContainer.qm
as PlasmoidPopupsContainer.qml and restarting KDE fixed the problem. The file is dated Feb. 18 @ 8:23 AM.

This is probably limited to my one machine. HTH anyway.

Wow, our posts are eerily familiar. Thanks for the fix :D

Okay. Not just me then. ;-)

Argh! Bitten by the tar bug on Slackware 14.2 again!
I unpacked (explodepkg) and re-packaged (makepkg) the plasma-workspace to fix the startkwayland script in there. It has happened in the past that files in the package that - excluding leading slash - are 101 characters long, get truncated to 100 characters, thus losing the final "l" in the above case. you'll see plenty of that searching the Internet for "tar truncated 100 characters".
I'll re-build the plasma-workspace package to fix this.

Thanks very much for the explanation and the quick fix, Eric.

Best.

Many thanks for your tireless efforts with KDE-plasma, Eric! I am looking forward to running KDE5 on Slackware. :cool:

Thank you Eric!

K3b hates me again. I have set permissions to 4755 root.cdrom for cdrdao and cdrecord. growisofs is set to 0750 root.cdrom. It stops trying to burn a disc, telling me "cdrecord has no permission to open the device."
Code:

brw-rw----+ 1 root cdrom 11, 0 Feb 25 20:32 /dev/sr0
I can't change permissions in k3b to whatever it is recommending because: "Unable to execute the action: DBus Backend error: service start org.kde.k3b failed: Cannot launch daemon, file not found or permissions invalid." I have no idea how to make this stuff happy. Any suggestions?

Same here.

First thing I did was add my user to the cdrom group and reboot:

# usermod -a -G cdrom rherbert

Then, as root (sudo didn't work) at the terminal:

# chmod 4710 /usr/bin/cdrdao
# chmod 4710 /usr/bin/cdrecord
# chmod 4710 /usr/bin/cdrecord (yes, twice)
# chmod 750 /usr/bin/growisofs

All this to satisfy the requirements under Settings, Configure k3b, Programs, Permissions.

Also: chown root.cdrom /usr/bin/cdrdao, cdrecord and growisofs

Now to figure out why it's so painfully slow.

HTH.

Cheap CD-RW medium. Much faster with a quality CD-R.

Too bad we don't know someone who could update 14.2's tar package :p


KDE's Dolphin has always had this network services link that says
Code:

The KDNSSD library has been built without Zeroconf support.
if you click on it. Is this something useful and should it be built with it?


With the Jan KDE5/Plasma does anyone else get two volume controls?

Ditto! (yes. :) )

gegechris99 02-27-2020 02:38 PM

When I first installed KDE5 at end of 2019, I also had two volume controls in system tray. One was the Plasma audio control and the other one was kmix. I uninstalled kmix package to keep only the Plasma volume control.
