U might wanna check out the new KDEmod forum.
Damn, very nice build. The new theme is perfect for me and looks great.
I have one question ... how can I use my multimedia keys (preferably without editing conf files). I have tried going to Control Centre -> Regional & Accessabilities -> Input Actions and making a new action but when the popup asks for what key to use, I press my volume buttons and it dont show up -- it only accepts actual keys.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks & Congrads on the build
To get multimedia keys working, you need to first map each keycode to a key symbol. You can find out the keycode by running xev command. Here are a few key symbols KDE makes use of: XF86AudioLowerVolume, XF86AudioRaiseVolume, XF86AudioMute.
You need to use the command xmodmap to do the mapping, read the xmodmap man page for info on how to use it.
Oh I am a complete idiot ... I went into KDE Control Centre -> Keyboard Layout -> Selected Dell Latitude Layout and clicked apply ... my multimedia buttons worked flawlessly now and to think all I had to do was select a layout >.<.
kdestyle-domino-0.4-4 seems buggied with scrollbars... I had to recompile it by myself.
Yes, Dunkelstern did a patch for it to solve the broken scrollbars in GTK apps... I have running it here without problems. The only thing that has been changed is that the scrollbars are no more rounded.
This is only a temporary fix, as its a gtk-qt-engine thing, and Dunkelstern already submitted a proper patch to solve it. When this patch gets applied, we will remove the temporary domino fix.
want a modular and tweaked KDE for arch? try kdemod
@ funkyou / dunkelstern:
Maybe you guys should post a "last comment" here, point to your new forum and close this thread here? Just to avoid the confusion with people (like me ) asking stuff here and meanwhile it was already asked and maybe solved in your new forum?
How can I disable bold font for symlinks on desktop? It looks very ugly for me and I prefer normal, italic font.

At the request of funkyou, this forum thread is being closed.
He said it was too confusing having all these posts in one topic. He has set up a whole forum for kdemod, with related topics.
He requests that further discussion regarding kdemod continue at the following site:
