    Phoronix: KDE Software Compilation 4.4.1 Released

    It's been just shy of a month since the release of KDE SC 4.4, but today the 4.4.1 point release for the KDE Software Compilation has been made available. The major highlights for KDE 4.4.1 SC include KMail performance fixes, fixes to Plasma and other desktop widgets, and Konsole fixes. A more complete summary of the KDE SC 4.4.1 changes can be found in the press release...

    Just upgraded from Kubuntu Backports. Haven't tested stuff yet. Biggest problem I still have is launching stuff with kdesu not working properly. Oh, and special character input not working.

    It's kdesudo with systems using "sudo" and not kdesu. Special character issue? Are you using NVIDIA binary drivers by chance?

    kdesu used to work fine and dandy with KDE4.3. kdesudo is displaying the same problems anyway.
    As for special characters, I meant the specifically the hotkeys (ctrl+shift+u+CODE). Again, worked fine on KDE4.3. Only place they work now is in Firefox.
    Kubuntu does tend to have more issues than usual compared to other distros, so I wouldn't rule out the possibility of a distro specific issue. Hey, at least Plasma doesn't crash anymore.

    What problem are you having with kdesudo? Anyways, if you upgraded from kde 4.3 to 4.4, I highly suggest to delete/move ~.kde folder so it resets all configurations. This fixed a lot of issues I had after upgrade.

    Nope, kdesu is the official program even if you're using sudo. kdesudo is some third-party software.

    KdeSudo is a graphical frontend to the sudo command.

    Kdesu is a graphical front end for the su command.


    One is for su, one is for sudo.

    In either case, I'm curious to know what's "official" for you. It's not a Microsoft product. There isn't anything official here.

    The KDE Software Compilation is a set of programs released by the KDE project. kdesu is official, because it's released by KDE as part of the Software Compilation: http://techbase.kde.org/Projects/kdesu

    KdeSudo is neither developed, nor endorsed by the KDE project. It's 3rd party software: http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show...?content=72106
