Difficult back from holiday with systemd

Back from holiday, I decided to update my Gento and I had som problems during update
with systemd.
I found the solution on Gentoo forum :

sys-apps/systemd contains udev and, then, you can safely let sys-fs/udev be removed as systemd will be the provider for virtual/udev.
sys-apps/systemd and sys-apps/dbus have a circular dependency which necessitates a 2-stage installation.
Install sys-apps/dbus with USE="-systemd". This is probably already done if you have a working desktop environment.
Enable the systemd USE flag globally (make.conf) and install sys-apps/systemd. This may also be accomplished by a world update. The consolekit use flag should also be disabled to prevent conflicts with the systemd-logind service. You can also switch to a systemd subprofile to use saner USE flags defaults not needing to change make.conf:

PrintScreen on KDE

If like me, you installed KDE by hand and you don't have screen capture, it is certainly that you don't have the ksnapshot installed.
So you have to run the following command :


emerge ksnapshot




KSnapshotdefaultscreen.png

Some comment about KSnapshot. It has interesting feature like :
  • Snapshot delay for capture drop down menu.
  • You can choose to add or not the mouse cursor.
  • You can send your snapshot to an other software like for example Gimp.
  • ALT Gr + printscreen is a shortcut to take only a window capture.

Konsole 2.11.3 bug under KDE 4.11.5

Konsole 2.11.3 has an annoying bug.Cursor moved forward some pixel from your line.So, you can't use Konsole ( for any person only ).
That's why I decided to test Guake terminal. To now, I find this simple and it works.

If you want to test it : emerge guake
