Several problems on KDE-Plasma

Question

Hi All,

I am new on Funtoo world and am trying to make my fresh installation suitable for my daily use, I have been following the installation guide but something is wrong here and I don't know how to resolve, these are the small problems am facing right now:

1 - Icons on the bar don't keep the position, all of them (clock, etc.) are on the left side every time I switch on the computer. I have been trying to cancel the ~/.kde but got nothing.

2 - When I minimize an application in the bar (Konsole, etc.) they simply disappear (when going to open again, is a new one, showing the number, like Konsole (1), Konsole (2), etc. sometime are under the new apps opened, for instance: opening Firefox full screen, when closing it the other app opened before and minimized in the bar is on the desktop there).

3 - I have half KDE in Italian language and half in English language (some programs like Dolphin and LibreOffice, full English). I have been downloading "l10n" and settled the suggested files for Italian language solving nothing and I don't see Italian language in the System Settings (only Firefox is full Italian after installing the appropriate file).

4 - System Settings does'nt keep all the settings. For instance, does'nt keep the user data (profile picture, name, etc.).

I don't know which data/output could be useful for you, if needing some, please ask.

Thank you for reading, ciao

might be some permission problem that is preventing to save the changes to your settings. try to recursively chown your home directory. including .dotfiles/dirs

Hi, bourbon!

I advise you to do this:

# useradd -m -G lp,wheel,uucp,audio,cdrom,video,games,usb,users,plugdev,lpadmin,pulse-access,scanner -s /bin/bash master-test
# passwd master-test

Login with this new user and see if the error will occur.

I hope I've helped!

Hi Cafaia :)

I really appreciate your kind help, am here reporting to you the situation at present time.
I have been following your hint, the output here:

master@HP-Funtoo ~ $ su -
Password:
HP-Funtoo ~ # useradd -m -G lp,wheel,uucp,audio,cdrom,video,games,usb,users,plugdev,lpadmin,pulse-access,scanner -s /bin/bash master-test
useradd: group 'pulse-access' does not exist
HP-Funtoo ~ # groupadd pulse-access
HP-Funtoo ~ # gpasswd -a master pulse-access
Aggiunta dell'utente master al gruppo pulse-access
HP-Funtoo ~ # useradd -m -G lp,wheel,uucp,audio,cdrom,video,games,usb,users,plugdev,lpadmin,pulse-access,scanner -s /bin/bash master-test
HP-Funtoo ~ # passwd master-test
Nuova password:
Reimmettere la nuova password:
Le password non corrispondono.
Nuova password:
Reimmettere la nuova password:
passwd: password aggiornata correttamente
HP-Funtoo ~ #  

Reading again, I see I did mistake (user master, not master-test), so I did:

master-test@HP-Funtoo ~ $ su -
Password:
HP-Funtoo ~ # gpasswd -a master-test pulse-access

The situation right now is the following (login with "master-test" user):
- KDE icons in the bar keeping the position = SOLVED :)
- No problem minimizing apps = SOLVED :)
- KDE is still 99% in English = NOT SOLVED
 (I have been adding some pics here)
kvmf0E9.png

7dFNXvB.png

Zdv07wY.png

- System Settings still does'nt keep some settings, like the user's data (keeping new colors scheme/fonts like before) = NOT SOLVED

I don't know if useful for you but am adding some data from files:
 

master-test@HP-Funtoo ~ $  eselect locale show
LANG variable in profile:
  it_IT@euro
master-test@HP-Funtoo ~ $
GNU nano 2.7.5     File: /etc/env.d/02locale                 

# Configuration file for eselect
# This file has been automatically generated.
LANG="it_IT@euro"
LC_CTYPE="it_IT.UTF-8"
GNU nano 2.7.5   File: /etc/portage/make.conf                

# Install Italian (Italy) translation (if available)
L10N="en-US it-IT"

LINGUAS="en_US it_IT"

VIDEO_CARDS="nvidia"

USE="nvidia"
/etc/Locale.gen (selezione)

en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8
it_IT.UTF-8 UTF-8
it_IT ISO-8859-1
it_IT@euro ISO-8859-15

After that, I noticed two warnings at boot:
- mdam = I don't remember what is wrong (red asterisk)
- npd = (red asterisk) does'nt start at boot (I have been installing it because am in multiboot with Windows 10. It solved the time issue on Funtoo but still needing to fix manually on Windows when using it).
 

/etc/conf.d/hwclock = clock="UTC"

Thank you once again, ciao

EDIT

I forgot to ask: on the old user (master) already I have been adding many files from external hard drive, is possible to move them into the new user (master-test) or needing to copy files again from esternal hard drive ?

After that, is possible to cancel the old user (master) ?

Hi, bourbon!

I'm glad that I have helped!

Let's go to the points with errors:

- KDE is still 99% in English = NOT SOLVED. In your System Settings do you have something similar to this:

Screenshot_20180411_095415.thumb.png.0d3a2cd9bf4799acbd983e7227f9b3ff.png

I see that your configuration files are correct, I advise you to put this too in your .bash_profile:

export LANG="it_IT.utf8"

After that, I noticed two warnings at boot:
- mdam = I don't remember what is wrong (red asterisk)
- npd = (red asterisk) does'nt start at boot (I have been installing it because am in multiboot with Windows 10. It solved the time issue on Funtoo but still needing to fix manually on Windows when using it).

The mdadm service is for raid, but it is not necessary if you have an image with the settings. I have raid and I do not have this service running.

The ntpd service requires special network configurations, you should not use dhcpcd as a service. The correct service should be net.eth0 and you should have this in /etc/conf.d/ntp-client:

rc_need="net.eth0"

The time in your bios is in UTC? The time in my bios is three hours early.

I advise you to copy the files from the external hd again, permission errors may occur.

I hope I've helped! Big hug!

Hi Cafaia,

You are the only person seriously helping me for this issue and strongly I hope am not disturbing you.
I am having problem with Internet connection at home and only now am able to log in again, hoping the provider will solve it soon, I have an emergency connection now and I don't know for how long I can enjoy it.

I update you about the current situation now:
- About the language, it is still 99% English, the image of "Impostazioni di Sistema" (System Settings) at the page Lingua/Idioma I have "American English" as "Available Languages" (left column) and "Preferred Languages" (right column) is still empty.
Can tell you that before I have been installing "kde-apps/kde4-l10n" and removing it as because did'nt solve the issue as because wishing to install "Brasero" Emerge telling me "l10n" causing conflict (btw still can't install "Brasero", don't remember which error still coming out).After that, I have been following your hint and gone to /etc/portage/make.conf and uptading it with:
L10N="en-US it"
LINGUAS="en_US it"
Being the situation still the same, following the link suggested by Jhan
https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/KDE/it#Localization
I update it again and it is like this now:

# Install Italian (Italy) translation (if available)
# L10N="en-US it-IT"
#L10N="en-US it"
L10N="it"

# LINGUAS="en_US it_IT"
LINGUAS="en_US it"


VIDEO_CARDS="nvidia"

USE="nvidia"

Problem not solved yet.
The file .bash_profile is this one now (as you suggested):

# /etc/skel/.bash_profile

# This file is sourced by bash for login shells.  The following line
# runs your .bashrc and is recommended by the bash info pages.
[[ -f ~/.bashrc ]] && . ~/.bashrc
export LANG="it_IT.utf8"

Talking about the "npd" warning at boot I have been adding the line
"rc_need="net.eth0" on /etc/conf.d/ntp-client giving "etc-update" after that. I swear that on the file was a line talking of DHCP or something (sorry, I don't remember), it is no more there.
Being the error still on the startup list (saying "net.eth0" is not there or something like that) and trying to fix myself, I have been editing the file /etc/init.d/sntp too.
Both files for you here.
 

  GNU nano 2.7.5   File: /etc/init.d/ntp-client                

start() {
        checkconfig || return $?

        ebegin "Setting clock via the NTP client '${NTPCLIENT_$
        "${NTPCLIENT_CMD}" ${NTPCLIENT_OPTS}
        eend $? "Failed to set clock"
}
rc_need="net.eth0"
  GNU nano 2.7.5      File: /etc/init.d/sntp                   

                return 1
        fi
        return 0
}

start() {
        ebegin "Setting clock via SNTP"
        ${command} ${SNTP_OPTS}
        eend $? "Failed to set clock"
}
rc_need="net.eth0"

(Always giving "etc-update namefile" after editing).
Yes please, time in my bios is "UTC" for what  I know.
I have been copying all files of mine on the new user (master-test) from external hard-drive.
Please, is possible to cancel the old user "master"? - I have no reason to use it anymore, I suppose, but I don't know how to cancel it. In the manual I see only the process to add users not to cancel them.
Another warning on boot:
/etc/init.d/udev uses "runscript" please use "openrc-run". I edited it, here it is:

Maybe I am not the right person to run Funtoo, still warnings at boot, as for "/etc/init.d/udev" as for "ntp" :(

Can tell you that before I have been installing "kde-apps/kde4-l10n" and removing it as because did'nt solve the issue

But did you install it with the correct USE flags? This package has several USE flags (see 'equery u kde4-l10n' for it). For italian you probably need to add l10n_it as USE flag.

Besides that this package might not work for you if you have kde5 installed. But I am no kde user so that is all guessing.

Another question: Did you reemerge the kde packages after changing the language settings?

Hi, bourbon!

I'm glad I'm helping you and it's a pleasure to help you!

But after you have put on /etc/portage/make.conf this:

L10N="en-US it"
LINGUAS="en_US it"

did you run the command below as root?

emerge -av --update --deep --newuse --changed-use --with-bdeps=y @world

About your network, you should follow these commands:

# cd /etc/init.d
# ln -s netif.tmpl net.eth0
# rc-update add net.eth0 default
# echo template=dhcpcd > /etc/conf.d/net.eth0

# echo 'rc_need="net.eth0"' >> /etc/conf.d/ntp-client
# rc-update add ntpd default

And you should disable the dhcpcd boot service, thus:

# rc-update del dhcpcd default

You edited the wrong files, the correct one is edit '/etc/conf.d/ntp-client' and not '/etc/init.d/ntp-client'.

To cancel the old user, you must give this command:

# userdel -f -r LOGIN

It is not correct to edit the file '/etc/init.d/udev' because the error saying to user run script is harmless.

I am from Brazil of the state of Rio Grande do Sul of the city of Frederico Westphalen. My great grandfather was Italian, he was from the Vicenza state of the city of Schio, my last name is Scalabrin.

Hi Cafaia :)

Officially, I am a disaster: I have been running all commands suggested by you but I got bad surprise at reboot. Surely the problem is that after this command:

# emerge -av --update --deep --newuse --changed-use --with-bdeps=y @world

(already I gave it during installation process but I don't remember when)
according with terminal's hint I gave

# emerge --depclean

final result, the Debian kernel gone and Funtoo does'nt start anymore.
Well, supposing I don't have to reinstall everything from scratch and can fix working from another installed distro (I have Linux Mint and Calculate on /dev/sdb plus Windows 10 on /dev/sda) or using the live cd System Rescue CD.
Looking at GParted on Linux Mint I see Funtoo is still there, on /dev/sdb3 (being UEFI environment the /boot/efi partition is on /dev/sda2).
I don't know the process to install the new kernel but is a problem that I was going to face soon or later even without the mistake I did today, because needing to solve this problem:

Message for package
media-sound/pulseaudio-11.1:
- A preallocated buffer-size of 2048 (kb) or higher is recommended for the hd-audio driver!

CONFIG_SND_HDA_PREALLOC_SIZE=54

I have been asking help in the forum here but I did'nt get help after this suggestion:

upgrade to debian-sources-4.14.12 those seem to have it set by default to 2048

So, I don't know what I have to do. (Maybe useful to know that I have been installing Nvidia drivers).
The discussion is here:

https://forums.funtoo.org/topic/1594-login-refuses-password/

After that, I can say that I have been fixing the files concerning "ntp" and "udev" (I will show you when I get Funtoo back) and also cancelled the old user.

I am happy to know that you have Italian blood :) I love Brasil and gone there long time ago (1988), to Rio de Janeiro and Salvador de Bahia.
In Salvador there, at "Dante Alighieri" Italian Cultural Centre I have been knowing a guy with Italian blood, his grandfather was coming from Veneto too, a village called Montecchio Maggiore (it is in Vicenza State=Provincia too).
Maybe his name is Antonio, am not sure because long time I lost contact but surely the surname is Cozza, he is living in Salvador de Bahia.
When I was there I have been invited to a show performed by the Italian Choir coming from Rio Grande do Sul State. Porca miseria! :)

Big hug

@ Jhan: - Hi!  -  To be honest, I don't know if I used the correct flags because I don't know how to manage them yet; I have been installing that package with # emerge -a seeing some flags already there but I don't know if needing intervention to add them to the package.
Also I have to understand yet why flags and other stuff coming out in the terminal with different colors.
Anyway, apparently the problem is fixed thanking Cafaia's hints, just needing to solve the kernel's problem now.
Thank you for your kind concern. Ciao

Just a small hint, use

emerge -pv --depclean

first, to see the list of what the depclean would remove.

I personally don't let the system do a 'emerge --depclean'. I use the above command to see the list of possibly unneeded packages and, if I agree, remove them manually. If I wouldn't do that then the system would remove older versions of kernel-sources, which I still need (I always keep the last two kernel versions on my system).

It also can be, that due to a change in the system, emerge looses the dependency for some packages (rarely happens) and would remove some packages that you might still need.

Hi, Bourbon!

Well, to install again the kernel does not have much difficulty, is a process similar to the first steps of the installation. I advise you to use the Live CD SystemRescueCD and do this:

# mkdir /mnt/funtoo
# mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/funtoo
# mkdir /mnt/funtoo/boot
# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/funtoo/boot

# cd /mnt/funtoo
# mount -t proc none proc
# mount --rbind /sys sys
# mount --rbind /dev dev

# cp /etc/resolv.conf /mnt/funtoo/etc/

# env -i HOME=/root TERM=$TERM /bin/chroot . bash -l

# export PS1="(chroot) $PS1"

(chroot) # ego sync

(chroot) # emerge debian-sources

(chroot) # exit
# cd /mnt
# umount -lR funtoo
# reboot

I do not have UEFI so I do not know for sure how you should proceed, but the above commands I believe arrive. I read that the new debian kernel will have what is missing for you (CONFIG_SND_HDA_PREALLOC_SIZE=2048).

I also love Brazil and my Italian blood. I'm glad you've visited my country. I have not yet visited Rio de Janeiro and neither Salvador, but I have great interest to visit these two cities. The Italian corals of Rio Grande do Sul are famous, because Rio Grande do Sul is the Brazilian state with the largest number of Italian immigrants.

Big hug,

Eduardo Coutinho Scalabrin

P. S.: Excuses, but I do not have Facebook, but if I create one I'll look for you, okay?

Hi Cafaia :)

I am mortified but still problem here: SDDM refuses password and mouse's pointer does'nt move over there. Plus, no access to consolle (Ctrl+Alt+F1).
After installing the kernel got problem at boot, I try to explain: lines were like flashing and problem typing for user name and password (no access, of course).
So, I did many steps trying to solve the issue myself, maybe I forget something, but surely I did:
- Installing Nvidia drivers again
- emerge -v1 x11-wm/twm x11-apps/xclock x11-terms/xterm
- emerge xf86-input-evdev
- cancelling the user (the old one cancelled before) and create new one using exactly the process you taught me.
In short, no more flashing lines at boot now and SDDM login comes out but refuses password and can't move mouse plus no access to consolle as I said before.
I was thinking maybe need to install "X" again and even KDE, like:
1  - # emerge -a kde-plasma/plasma-desktop

   - # etc-update on the requested file

1a - # emerge -a dev-libs/sni-qt

1b - # emerge -a dev-libs/libappindicator:2

1c - # emerge -a dev-libs/libappindicator:3

2 - # emerge -a kde-plasma/plasma-meta

2a - # emerge -a sys-devel/gdb

2b - # emerge -a x11-themes/oxygen-gtk
but I don't have flat rate Internet at home now and I don't feel to use phone data to do all of that, because being big packages need a lot of data.
Being for me impossible to download big packages at present time, I stop my Funtoo experience till I get back flat rate Internet.

Big hug

Silvio

Hi, Bourbon!

I'm sorry you're in trouble. Your problems seem to be for lack of this command:

# emerge -av --update --deep --newuse --changed-use --with-bdeps=y @world

Because in funtoo the programs most of the time are dependencies of correct FLAGS/USES in master programs. For example: you should not install xf86-input-evdev with the command emerge, because this program must be installed with the parameter INPUT_DEVICES="evdev" in master program xorg-drivers.

Could you send me the output of the command "emerge --info"?

I advise you to read this, for me it helped:

https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Xorg

I hope this helps you.

Big hug,

Eduardo

Hi Cafaia!

I am here in real time now, just gave the command and this is the output:

(chroot) sysresccd / # emerge -av --update --deep --newuse --changed-use --with-bdeps=y @world

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!

I have been putting the two links into my bookmarks but I don't do nothing now, just waiting for news from you.

Ciao :)

Hi, Bourbon!

Now who does not know what to do is me, because the settings seem to be correct... I hope you find help in the manuals I sent you because I no longer have any idea what can be.

You should try to follow the manual and if something goes wrong contact.

I'm sorry but at the moment I do not know what to do.

Big hug,

Eduardo

Hi Cafaia!

No problem, already you did a lot for me, I will try to solve the problem and will post the final result here.

A pic of Schio for you here, is not a special one but am unable to get any better than this one; it is the Old Town, your Grand-Grandpa surely has been walking there.

Hi, Silvio!

Wow, the photo is very beautiful, it's a city I want to meet!

This, if you encounter any problems when following the manual, here insert the error that I will be happy to help.

One more question: do you have the services "dbus" and "consolekit" running? Maybe it is that...

Anything is just calling, because the Funtoo community is here to help and welcome to the Funtoo community!

Big hug,

 

Eduardo

Hi, Eduardo!

I checked the services, "dbus" and "consolekit" are running for what I can understand.
I did some attempts always in chroot from System Rescue CD, I don't remember all steps but surely I have been doing the process for "X" and "KDE".
Hoping is not a problem that I was on System Rescue CD working in graphical environment when working.
Gone looking at the pages you suggested to me but I was puzzled because the process is not the same of the one on Funtoo manual. So, I gone to Funtoo manual, these are the pages I have been following more than others:
https://www.funtoo.org/KDE_Plasma_5
https://www.funtoo.org/X_Window_System
Between the steps done, I gave this command:
/etc/init.d/udev --nodeps restart
getting this output:
/etc/init.d/udev: riga1: !/sbin/runscript: file o directory non esistente (file or directory don't exist).
Same result also after installing:
sys-fs/eudev and x11-drivers/xf86-input-evdev
btw all those services are running:
# rc-update add alsasound boot
# rc-update add cupsd default
# rc-update add dbus default
# rc-update add consolekit default
When a work done always giving:
emerge -av --update --deep --newuse --changed-use --with-bdeps=y @world
It has been the last command before leaving chroot too.
Changed nothing, situation is:
- SDDM comes out even showing the right time in the clock but the mouse's pointer is stuck in the middle of the screen and doesn't accept password (like am typing nothing).
Plus, can't go to consolle with Ctrl+Alt+F*.
Ctrl+Alt+Delete does'nt work too and needing to use the tower's button to switch off the machine.

Big hug

Silvio

Hi, Silvio!

Funtoo manuals are very well written and are slightly different from Gentoo, you did right to follow the Funtoo manual.

We'll try to solve this mouse problem first. I believe it would be good for you to create an xorg.conf file with these commands:

# Xorg -configure :5
# mv /root/xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf
# nvidia-xconfig

To test this setting file:

# X -config /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Try this and tell me how it went.

Big hug,
