6ferrets: Starting/stopping programs with the screen saver?

Is there a way to get other programs start and stop when the screen saver does?

Specifically, I want ktorrent to run only when the screen saver does (so that it won't suck up bandwidth while I'm at the computer). I haven't found anything like this in the screen saver docs, and I haven't found any docs for ktorrent.

6ferrets: Removing konsole session types?

Konsole has several session types that I don't use (e.g., "Python Interpreter" and "Midnight Commander"). When I go to Settings -> Configure Konsole -> Session, I cannot remove them. I realize that I need at least one to use as a prototype, but is there any way to get rid of the other, useless (to me) session types?

6ferrets: Applets and buttons in the KDE panel?

In KDE 3.5.5, I can add a lock screen/log-out applet to the KDE panel, but how can I add individual lock screen and log-out applets or buttons?

For that matter, I can configure regular buttons (but not applets) to see how they're set up. Is there any way “to peek” inside of an applet?

P.S. I found the answer to one of my questions. kdesktop_lock will “lock” the screen with or without a password depending on options. There doesn't seem to be any official documentation for it though.

dgorchak: Enable/Disable KGet button

Sometimes I need such button, because it's not very comfortable to temporary unset KGet an Konqueror's download manager via KGet's settings window.
So I wonder if it's possible to make "Enable/Disable KGet" button to place it in Konqueror's toolbar?

P.S. If there is a way to blackilist using KGet on some sites, this will be fine too.

6ferrets: KDE trash from the command line?

How would I refer to the KDE trash from the command line? Ultimately, I'd like to alias "rm" to move files to the KDE trash.

lupinehunter: Konqueror slowdowns


At some point after I started using KDE 3.5.x versions, konqueror started to use too much cpu from time to time, which resulted in slowdowns. I could only get rid of it after closing the konqueror instance with the problem. Before it was always lightning fast.

I can't seem to find the cause of this problem, does anyone have any idea?

6ferrets: Dead keys in KDE 3.5?

I recently upgraded to KDE 3.5.2, and the keyboard layout for US International with dead keys is missing. Is this a permanent change? Is there something I can do or install to get it back?

zynth: Drool

Was scrolling around the -look.org websites and came across this preview of a wall paper you can download from there. No luck getting in contact with the creator of this, so I figured I'd fire a question on this community.

Does anyone recognize the UI set ups used in this screen shot? I'm a relatively new user, so even stating the obvious would be helpful.
