The first thing I like to install is the KDE Network management widget. It is not present in Debian KDE by default.
Another thing noticed is the odd message “Networking interface unmanaged” instead of setting and displaying a name
sudo kate /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf
The file probably contains:
[ifupdown] managed=false[/code] Change false to true and restart Network Management/etc/init.d/network-manager restart[/code] .
12 hour time:Open KDE Country. region, Language applet: Times & Dates>Time format> Change to pH:MM:SS AMPM
Other widgets to add:System tray (Contains volume, USB notifier etc) Task manager (this is the horizontal tab of apps)
Favorite apps:Shutter (screenshot manager) Gimp (Image manipulator) mc (file manager) filezilla (ftp client) gparted and parted emacs You can install all these at a go:sudo apt-get install shutter mc filezilla gimp libx11-dev libxtst-dev emacs
libx11-dev and libxtst-dev are the dependencies of ksuperkey (along with make and build-essential).
Video thumbnails in Dolphin:
Install mplayerthumbs.sudo apt-get install mplayerthumbs
Now enable previews in Dolphin settings>General>Previews>Video files(mplayerthumbs)
