If you notice that your ssh agent and/or gpg agent aren’t running after logging in to KDE4 on openSUSE, and you just upgraded your KDE from the KDE:Release:49 buildservice repository, there is a simple fix.

Run this command as root:

ln -sf /etc/X11/xdm/Xsession /usr/share/kde4/config/kdm/Xsession

That will do it. By the way, the bug report for this bug is here. Please add your 2 cents worth if you are hit by it.

If you are working with TGA images a lot, you might have seen the bug where KDE apps like Gwenview can’t open them and give you a weird message about being unable to read metadata.

This is a bug in qt. KDE4 brings its own image readers for TGA, but only uses them when the qt ones are not available. So let’s delete them (as root, of course):

rm /usr/lib/debug/usr/lib64/qt4/plugins/imageformats/libqtga.so.debug
rm /usr/lib/qt4/plugins/imageformats/libqtga.so
rm /usr/lib64/qt4/plugins/imageformats/libqtga.so

Some of these commands can fail, depending on whether you have debug information or 64bit versions installed.

Ever had this happen?

You open the file requester in a GTK app to open or save a file, but the names don’t come with icons so it’s kind of hard to tell the difference between a folder and a file without extension.

Here’s the reason: your KDE styles have been updated but the gtk icon cache was not refreshed.

And here is the solution: run the following command as root to refresh all icon caches:

for i in /usr/share/icons/*; do [ -d $i ] && gtk-update-icon-cache $i; done
