I'm running Fedora 31/KDE and it is great. Fantastic, actually.
Kudos to the team that delivers and supports Fedora, release after release. Things just
keep getting better and better and the update process is so smooth and easy. Especially
compared to those other operating systems...
However, F31/KDE isn't perfect. Here are a few things that could be better...
1) There is a bug that creates distortion in playing audio via HDMI monitors. I
frequently have to do a pulseaudio -k to reset things.
File a bugzilla.
2) There is a bug when running dual monitors and the left monitor is rotated and not the
primary monitor. I have to start SystemSettings and force a reinitialization every time
File a bugzilla.
3) There is a bug wherein the HDMI monitor I want my audio played on isn't saved.
It always wants to play on the first (left most) monitor. I have to start pauvolume and
select my primary monitor every time I reboot.
Have you actually found a monitor with good speakers? :-)
I don't know if this is a bug or configuration since my 2 monitors have really bad
speakers and I refuse to
use them. My external Bose speakers do a *much* better job. :-)
4) It would be really, really nice if KDE remembered which desktop an application was on
when you rebooted after doing a forced shutdown. For example, sometimes I have 30 Firefox
browsers open on various topics, spread across 3 or 4 desktops, plus some PDFs in viewers
and a few Konsole sessions and a few Kwrite documents... and a large update comes along
that I need to apply that requires a reboot.
Did you check "System Settings-->Startup and Shutdown-->Desktop Session"?
Generally I do a #dnf update followed by a #shutdown -r now.
When I reboot and login to a new session, Firefox allows me to restore all my open
browsers, but it doesn't remember which Desktop they were on... so I have to manually
sort them. Likewise Konsole sessions don't remember what Desktop they were in, nor
the path they were open to. Would be nice if they did.
You probably will get closer to your goal by checking/trying the options noted above and
prior to doing a restart.
You may also want to investigate "System Settings-->Window Management--Window
Rules". You can
control where, what size, etc, of applications.
5) There is an unintended behavior whereby if I open a document fullsize on one screen,
it goes fullsize on any screen I move it to.
For example, I run a 22" monitor in portrait mode to the left of my primary 43"
4K monitor. I often fullscreen a document in the side monitor to refer to while I am
working on something on the primary monitor. If I then drag the document from the side
monitor to the primary 4K monitor, it goes fullscreen there. And then I have to resize
it. It would be nice if it stayed the same size, pixel wise, when it moves from screen to
Sounds to me as if that is an intended behavior. If a window is in full-screen and you
move it another display
why shouldn't it remain in full-screen?
6) My mouse doesn't move enough...
My desktop is very wide. A side 1920x1080 monitor running in portrait beside a 4K
monitor. I have my mouse speed/acceleration turned right up, but I often run out of
space on my mouse pad before I can move across or even up and down my desktop. It would
be nice if there was more speed/acceleration so less hand movement was required.
FWIW, I got sick of mice and the wrist pain if produced for me. I switched to a trackball
and never regretted
that decision. I can zip across my 2 2560x1440 displays with the flick of a finger.
The key to getting good answers is to ask good questions.
