Many TDE users report problems using KPPP. Make sure you have already checked the
Can you dialup to your ISP without using KPPP? If you cannot, then perhaps KPPP is not the culprit after
Have you gone through the KPPP documentation
and followed the instructions and troubleshooting
The KPPP handbook is available through the
TDE Help Center.
If you still encounter problems, then the following might help:
- How do I change the MTU setting in KPPP?
Open up the KPPP dialog box and select
Setup. Choose an existing account and click
Edit, or New to create a
new dialup account. Select the Dial tab and
click Arguments. Type what you want to change
in the Argument textbox (e.g.
mtu 296) and
click Add. When you are satisfied, click
To check whether the options took, do one of the following:
In a terminal window, run
/sbin/ifconfig ppp0 and look
at the reported MTU in the output. It should match your
(each on a separate line) to your
/etc/ppp/options file and restart your
PPP session. You will find debugging messages in
/var/log/messages, including MRU and MTU
If you want, the MRU and MTU settings can be added to the
options file, one complete setting per line, no
quotes or dashes.

The following might do the trick:

The default MTU value is 1500,

Check in your
$ for the
kppprc. Ensure the correct modem speed is
actually defined there.
- How do I page-up or page-down?
Use Shift+Page Up
- How do I copy text from Konsole to
Use the mouse to select the desired text. From the
Edit menu, select Copy, or press
Ctrl+Shift+C. This places
the text in the TDE clipboard, Klipper. Next select
the target application, place the mouse pointer to the
desired location and press Ctrl+V.
Alternately, highlight the text by dragging with the left mouse button down and
paste by clicking with the middle mouse button (or both buttons if you are using a
2 button mouse with 3 button emulation).
Note that the copying and pasting keyboard shortcuts use the
Shift key. That is because in traditional Unix terminals,
Ctrl+C is used to break or stop
a process from running.
- Why can't Konsole find the 9x15 and the 2
console bitmap fonts installed with TDE?
FontConfig must find the three fonts
the TDE install does not install these fonts in a directory that
already exists (e.g.
/usr/share/fonts) then you must add this
directory to the configuration file
/etc/fonts/local.conf. This should be
the first line after <fontconfig>. For example:
After adding the directory, run (as root):
fc-cache -v and check that
it found the directory.
