[EN] [SOLVED] plasma 5, can't close or resize windows.
« on: 2015/07/16, 22:58:20 »
Hello community.
I recently upgraded to KDE plasma 5 but now, no programme will appear in task manager, I am unable to alt+tab between programmes, when a window is open there is no top bar appearing on it so I can't minimise, maximise or close a programme (even through short cuts) I can't move any window or resize when I select it. I have tried tweaking the system setting but to no result. Any Ideas?
Thanks

So ... do you have kdenext in your sources.list and kde-standard installed?

ah, I see. Wish I had read your post before I did dist-upgrade!!
(note to self: check upgrade warning every time, not just sometimes)

I don't have kdenext in my sources.list or kde-standard is this something I should have?

You need at least kdenext in your sources list for a smooth upgrade.
 If you need/want kde-standard depends if there are some packages you want or if you lack packages the desktop needs, have a look at 'apt show kde-standard'. Some are needed, but probably you have them already, like kdeplasma-addons, kwin, plasma-desktop, polkit-kde-1, systemsettings,... . Try to guess :)

---Edit: Regarding this post kde-standard seems a good idea if something does not work as expected.

Du lachst? Wieso lachst du? Das ist doch oft so, Leute lachen erst und dann sind sie tot.

Yes, I can confirm the problem mentioned there -very slow start-, which disappeared after installing kde-standard.

Thanks all!
it all looks good now, added the kde-next repository and added the kde-standard package.
