As implied here, edit ~/.config/kwinrc, adding the following lines to the bottom. [ModifierOnlyShortcuts] Meta= Then restart kwin with kwin_x11 --replace & disown.

This is reported to have been resolved in QTBUG-66036 with version 5.12. As of the time I am writing this, QT on Arch Linux is version 5.11.2-1. Other common distros have also not released packages with Qt 5.12. However, when Qt 5.12 is released, the developers expect this issue to be resolved. To check your Qt version, you can open a terminal and type: ...

Upgrading to Qt 5.12 is fine, but does not seem to fix the issue straight away. In Konsole profile settings under the advanced tab, change "Line Spacing" to 1. This has fixed the issue with horizontal lines for me.

According to announcements you need to add the corresponding Plasma Widget or the menu button from "Window Decorations" settings. Global Menus have returned. KDE's pioneering feature to separate the menu bar from the application window allows for a new user interface paradigm, with either a Plasma Widget showing the menu, or with the menu neatly tucked ...

In the Startup and Shutdown -> Background Services configuration applet make sure the Keyboard Daemon service ("Enables switching keyboard layout through shortcuts or system tray") is checked and in the "Running" state: For whatever reason this service is also responsible for propagating rate/delay changes to X11, which you can see live via: watch -n1 '...

In KDE5 Plasma go to System Settings and select Hardware / Input devices. Then select Keyboard / Layouts. Add Arabic Buckwalter (this layout is easy for non-Arabic speaking people). At that screen you can also adjust the keyboard shortcuts and you can activate an indicator on the panel. To add another language you could have a problem because that option is ...

Look in ~/.config for a file named plasm-org.kde.plasma.desktop-appletsrc. It will contain something like: [Containments][25][Applets][35][Configuration][General] applicationName=GNU Emacs 24 genericName=Text Editor iconName=/usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/apps/partitionmanager.svg url=file:///usr/share/applications/emacs24.desktop Change the IconName ...

See bugreport: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=829614. There is some kind of conflicts between KF5 5.22 and 5.23. I had the same issue, and installing libkf5plasma5 from unstable resolved it. apt install -t unstable libkf5plasma5

My personal opinion, based on some reverse engineering I've just finished on this subject, is that, with all due respect, KDE developers did a big mess here. In a fit of oversimplification, the option you mention is no longer available. The global menu is now automatically enabled when you place a global menu applet in a panel or add the menu button to the ...

Without a more precise definition of "cannot", it's difficult to answer your first question. For your second, doing a "hard" shutdown or reboot can lead to several problems: "Temporary" files which an application would ordinarily clean up not being removed, leading to wasted disk space Incomplete filesystem I/O transactions leading to lost or corrupted ...

I hope I have understood your question correctly. I assume the icons you are talking of are those of the tabs in the "Task Manager" widget of KDE Plasma's Panel. It looks like your question has an answer on askubuntu. There, the question mentions Ubuntu and Gnome, but the answer does not make use of any specific feature of a desktop environment or Linux ...

I tried going to the panel's context menu > Panel Options > Add Panel > Application Menu Bar, but only an empty panel appears at the top of the screen. If this happens to you: 1. Go to System Settings > Startup and Shutdown > Background Services, and then enable the Application Menus Daemon. Always remember to click Apply! 2. Restart any open ...

Konsole ignores that, because it relies upon a hard-coded list of keys which cannot be mapped: // Override any of the following shortcuts because // they are needed by the terminal int keyCode = keyEvent->key() | modifiers; switch (keyCode) { // list is taken from the QLineEdit::event() code case Qt::Key_Tab: case Qt::Key_Delete: case Qt::Key_Home: case ...

Unlocking Is it possible to save the passwords in my kwallet in a way that automatically unlocks the keys as needed? If so, how can this be achieved? As far as I know this cannot be done in kWallet. Use gpg-agent instead. You can make it's settings as liberal as you like, balanced between security and ease of access. Depending on which distribution ...

Turns out all I needed to do is install xf86-video-intel (for my Intel graphics card) in order to start Plasma 5 on boot. SDDM was auto-starting and autologging me into KDE Plasma 5, but unfortunately in the absence of this package the X.Org server crashed. I should have checked if KDE Plasma 5 started using xinit (with the ~/.xinitrc exec startkde) before ...

The issue is 'Debian upstream'. See this report at bus.debian.org. There is a workaround solution. You can build the plasma-workspace package manually from the Debian source repository, which you must enable first. apt build-dep plasma-workspace apt source plasma-workspace dpkg-buildpackage Install the resulting plasma-desktop.deb file with dpkg -i <...

KDE Desktop Switching Your problem is underlaid with the "focused" window situation, nothing changed on the new version of KDE but new features have been added (i am referring to the changes done to the focus stealing feature) What's happening is when your window is activated, as it was not activated by an "active selection" it does not get the focus and ...

KDE neon's FAQ page has this: KDE neon does continuous deployment of the latest KDE software which means there are nearly always new versions of our software to update to. We recommend using Plasma Discover's updater which appears in your panel: If you prefer to use the command line you can use the pkcon command: pkcon refresh pkcon update ...

There should be an Dolphin (KDE's default filemanager) plug-in. Dolphin: Control -> Configure Dolphin... -> Services -> Download New Services... -> Search for 'mount' UPDATE: What works in 2018 with Plasma 5.8 is KDE Services. There is also the possibility of modifying such scripts - for example this here.

You must have always the very last packages of QT5, KF5 for every Plasma 5 version, or the Plasma Desktop has many bugs, freezes or is completely broken. In Debian are mostly old or different versions, also mixed with KDE 4, which ends up in multiple problems. So Plasma 5 in Debian is far away from usable. Personally i think, that KDE has no priority for ...

I have found an answer, namely running: sudo setxkbmap -layout ara changes my keyboard to an Arabic one. Likewise running: sudo setxkbmap -layout us switches it back to a US English keyboard. Further layouts can be found in /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/.

The window switcher installation is broken, resources are missing It seems you downloaded some theme or custom task switcher that is not compatible with your current version. I had same problem and fixed it selecting a working theme, then restarting (or relogging), using following command : kwin_x11 --replace Hope it helps.

My experience, GTK+ application theming doesn't work well if it's not gnome session. You should try the lxappearance application while running KDE to apply GTK+ theme or Icon theme. Tested on KDE5 and LXQt. I think the Pop icon theme blend well with both dark and light themes.

I don't know why Elmo Todurov wrote a comment instead of an answer, but it was indeed the only working solution for me and therefore an answer. edit the file: /usr/share/sddm/scripts/Xsetup prepend the following lines: xrandr --setprovideroutputsource modesetting NVIDIA-0 xrandr --auto
