View Full Version : Kubuntu KDE4 & GTK issues & KDE 4.0.4

May 12th, 2008, 08:47 PM
i did a clean install of kubuntu intrepid w/ kde4 x86.
i test daily builds of firefox3, it will not close properly. (closes the interface, but stays open in the background, confirmed via system monitor).
i like synaptic, for one reason, cuz its faster, so i use it. now i've been forced to use adept cuz synaptic won't close properly either. its a slightly different problem than with fx3. i have the option ticked to "close when updates are successfully applied" but it never does, even when the updates are successfully applied. i have to kill the app to get it to close.

has anyone else experienced these type of problems with gtk apps in kub-kde4?

oh, i also changed my sources.list to hardy-backports to get kde 4.0.4. (for some reason, kde 4.0.4 isn't in intrepid, & intrepid is newer)! i updated all the kde4 packages to 4.0.4, but all my kde4 packages/interfaces still say 4.0.3. did someone forget to update the version strings? (i have confirmed that the 4.0.4 packages are actually installed via my package managers & i didn't encounter any problems updating the packages).

should i have not switched to the hardy-backports repo?

I've got the same issue with synaptic on KDE4 when starting it from the K Menu, but I found running "gksudo synaptic" works fine.

No issue here with up to date Intrepid (KDE 4.0.98). I'm not using Synaptic, but all my GTK apps (Firefox, Pidgin, Gimp) seem to operate normally.
