    I need help in getting higher resolution to work on Xorg and KDE.

    I've just installed FreeBSD 13.3 on a new PC and I'm connecting it via DisplayPort to a widescreen monitor. I follwed the instructions to install X11 and KDE. KDE is indeed running. However, there is only a single resolution and everything appears very big. My motherboard supports up to 8K...

    Xfce How to clean up mess caused by kdekeyring

    So I use XFCE but installed some software that required some KDE libraries. Unfortunately one of those was the KDE wallet and from then on I was getting a prompt every time I launched gajim. I ended up having to install even more KDE components just to get the settings GUI working so I could...

    Solved Screen Tearing on KDE X11 with Intel Iris Xe Graphics (TigerLake-LP GT2)

    Hello, I previously used Linux and switched to FreeBSD yesterday. I installed KDE Plasma, Intel display and graphics drivers and configured Xorg to stop the screen tearing but none really worked. Wayland is broken for me so it's not really an alternative. I tried running Xorg -configure and...

    Plasma wayland fails with "kwin_wayland_drm: No suitable DRM devices have been found"

    I am trying to get KDE plasma running on wayland. As far as I have understood, it's not possible to launch into KDE wayland from sddm, but should be possible by executing startplasma-wayland.sh or ck-launch-session dbus-run-session startplasma-wayland as a non-root user. Doing so (however fails...

    Other Trinity Desktop Environment on FreeBSD

    Trinity, also known as TDE, is a desktop environment for Unix-derived and Unix-like operating systems. It is a continuation of KDE 3.5 much like MATE is to GNOME 2. TDE contains a substantial amount of KDE applications that lost features or were cut entirely in the Plasma era, such as aRts...

    How to change mouse scrolling acceleration parameters?

    I can not change the mouse scrolling parameters. I have a Logitech G502 mouse and when I scroll through long websites or PDFs, the scroll delays like 3-5 secs to actually start moving up/down. I would like the scrolling to take place instantly like how it should. The Logitech G502 mouse has a...

    Miscellaneous issues with KDE Plasma

    Installing KDE apps without KDE-specific services

    Its from my understanding that KDE applications can, at the source, be installed much like xfce applications where they dont have a hard dependence on the desktop environment they're from. Installing something like x11-fm/krusader2 however pulls in quite a lot of kde frameworks specific things...

    After refactored drm-kmod + gpu-firmware-kmod, cursor is now invisible!

    Hello, I've already posted here about this problem, but I thought I'd make another post in a different category since I don't think it's a problem with peripherals; rather, it is a problem with the refactored drm-kmod-and-friends ports. I hope that's allright! ☺️ I am on a laptop, specifically...

    KDE and dbus_enable

    I had just did a fresh installation of FreeBSD 13 and xorg+KDE. I deliberately left out "dbus_enable="YES" in the /etc/rc.conf (after finding out that it isn't really necessary as some users don't have it enabled). After rebooting the machine, I got a blank (black) screen with only a moving...

    Xfce Does Xfce requires less or simpler hardware drivers (compared to KDE)?

    I'm using KDE with the drm-kmod graphics driver and just experienced a hang issue. I'm just wondering if I switch over to Xfce, would it work without this drm-kmod driver? My gut feeling is it would require the same hardware drivers. But however, I remember that many years ago things were much...
