Waldo’s Web Is Back Online

Phew, I spend all of yesterday and half of today, but Waldo’s Web is a lot more responsive and seems to be fully back online.

I am now done with the amateur radio lectures I provided my local community this past month, so I finally had the time to update the server. It had been sluggish and unresponsive at times. I hope it’s good for years to come.

Now, it’s time to focus on mail servers…

I also hope this post will automatically go to my Twitter feed. I no longer use Twitter, but I’d like to be able to keep my followers informed.

Have a good day! 😀

Arch Linux org.plasma.private.kicker Module Not Installed

I updated my desktop PC yesterday, (# pacman -Syu) only to discover nothing would launch after login. I use KDE 5 on Arch Linux. Whenever I clicked the ‘K’ application menu, I received a message indicating that the org.plasma.private.kicker module was not installed.

What the heck is that?

I worked around it for a day (yesterday, 2017-01-23) by holding the shift key and typing the first letter of the application I wanted to run. [SHIFT+F] to bring up the run command and then finishing with ‘irefox’ would get my web browser running.

That got me through the day yesterday, but today, I decided to take a few minutes and try to resolve the issue. Since I didn’t know what the problem was, I simply decided to reinstall xorg-service and the plasma group.

# pacman -S xorg-server plasma

Did the trick, by reinstalling the packages from my cache. I’m now a happy desktop GUI using camper. 😀
