I'm using the latest Plasma and am generally quite pleased with it,
especially with one long-standing bugbear that has now been sorted out:
when using Save Session, Plasma now correctly remembers which desktop
all the windows should be on, even those belonging to non-KDE apps
(though it still doesn't get the actual window positioning right, even
for Plasma apps).
Anyway, on the same subject of virtual desktops, I find the panel to be
rather visually confusing, so I'd like to show only the name of each
desktop without the tiny wire-frame copies of each window inside it.
I'm pretty sure this used to be possible but can't seem to find the
The rectangles representing each desktop are also too wide, which looks
like an actual bug. Can anyone confirm this?
The situation with the big Plasma version update in KDE has been
discussed a lot. For me, the mid-release-cycle major version update
caused significant issues before.
So I have a question: is it possible to just hold the Plasma version
in Fedora, entirely preventing updates of any Plasma packages? I would
enter such a freeze a few days before the new Plasma hits, then
unfreeze a month or two after, hoping that any glitches in the fedora
Fedora were ironed out in the meantime.
I would not want to freeze all other updates though.
So I would very much appreciate it if people could tell me how to do
this. Is there a list of packages I need to use "dnf versionlock" on?

I'm having a strange problem with my display resolution. This doesn't
happen with Gnome, so I assume it's KDE-related in some way.
Briefly, I have an HP Pavilion 23xi monitor connected via HDMI to an
HDMI switch, which in turns connect to two GPUs. One of these is an
Intel 915 on the motherboard and is what I normally use for Linux. The
other is an Nvidia GTX1050 which I use only for Windows gaming using a
KVM/QEMU VM with VFIO passthrough. What this means is that the Nvidia
card is masked (blacklisted) from Linux and is only visible to the VM.
In fact neither of the Nvidia nor Nouveau kernel modules are even
I now find that when I switch the monitor inputs from the Nvidia to the
i915, my display resolution is being reset to 1280x720 instead of its
normal 1920x1080. This happens *even when I'm not running the VM*. I
have to manually reconfigure the resolution using the KDE Settings
widget. This never used to happen, and I can see no reason for it to be
happening now, but it has started since I updated to Plasma 5.20. Even
if I'm running the Windows VM, the display is always set to the same
1920x1080, so I don't know where the lower resolution is even coming
Any thoughts on this would be welcome.
I'm running Fedora rawhide (plasma-wayland) in a libvirt VM and I see
the keyboard language setting is always English even if I set an other
language in the IBus language changer in the tray.
I wonder whether to report this bug against IBus or some other plasma or
Trying to get ahead of the curve and do some wayland testing. Noticed this:
Has anyone else experienced this. While great improvements have been made with Wayland, there are
still quite a few annoying quirks and bugs that IMHO should keep Wayland from being the Plasma default.
Sorry for the vague title but here's the situation:
When I click on a URL in Evolution, I get a browser window, but said
window invariably opens on the desktop where the browser originally
launched when I started my session, meaning I have to switch desktops
to see it.
Is there some magic that will always respond to clicks by opening tghe
window on the desktop where the click happened?
I'm not even sure if this is a KDE question, an X11 question, a kwin
question, a Plasma question, a browser question or what (though I don't
think it's an Evolution question).
I can't launch Spectacle with Print shortcut anymore. I can see Spectacle shortcut in Custom and Global shortcut settings. I can't set spectacle shortcut in the global shortcut settings. If I do set the shortcut in global shortcut settings then they go back to being unset as soon as I navigate away from the screen.
