Fedora: KDE Appearance "Updates are Available"?

0 votes

I have been using Fedora since 2002....and at NO POINT have I ever installed anything even remotely related to KDE.

Fast forward to today, I get the usual notifications that "Updates Are Available"...through the Gnome notifications atop the screen midship....and I proceed to authorize them and install them. Now...Im one of those uptight people who like to "watch" things as they get installed...and I started seeing things like:kf5-kbookmarkskf5-kdedkemoticons....and a slew of other "K" related things.

Is this something to be expected from future updates?....and how do I get rid of these?

Anything that has a kde dependency that you installed would have installed also the kde dependencies with it

Check your installed programs. Some may have kde dependencies. Programs like k3b have several. This will pull the "k" installs you saw.

The Sound Icon came up missing from System Tray after reboot, It is not even in Hidden Icons.
How do I get The Sound Icon back in System Tray ? If I click on Kmix from Menu it won't start and display Kmix. If I remember it was just after I did a Update.

I am running scientific linux 6.3 with kde 4.3.4 and my problem is that for some reason or other, i have now killed off the desktop by accidentally clicking the "x" that appears in the 'sidebar' [which may not be proper name] that pops out to right of desktop.

I searched through files that i thought would be associated with desktop without finding something related to 'sidebar'.

Only way I have found to restore 'sidebar' is by renaming my user name and creating user again, then copying files over from a backup.

I ran a search of internet with "ixquick", but found nothing related directly to such.

Where are all the kernel updates released to-date, along with source rpms, archived for Fedora?

I have enabled the rpmforge repo to get the flash-plugin because this seems to do what I want instead of the flash-plug that is in the supplemental repo. When the rpmforge pkg is install yum wants to update
it using the redhat repo. The version does not work as the sites I go to says it is too old. Yet the pkg from rpmforge works well.

How do I get yum to *not* want to upgrade this from the RH repo? I checked the yum and yum.conf man pages but I did not see exactly what I want to do there as an option.
