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.

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

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 ...

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: ...

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 ...

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 ...

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: If this does not seem to have an effect, log out and back in. The settings should be applied afterwards. For whatever ...

kmenuedit will allow you do it via GUI see this other question/answer https://askubuntu.com/questions/647121/how-do-i-set-custom-application-icons-in-kde

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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

Another workaround is setting Line Spacing to 1 under Settings -> Edit Current Profile ... -> Advanced -> Terminal Features. It's almost unnoticeable (one extra pixel between lines), but fixes the issue.

As a workaround, you could change the Fonts DPI: go to Fonts, check the box Force Fonts DPI set to an appropriate value (I use 144 on a 2560x1440 screen, you may want to try 192 in 4K) Higher DPI translate to bigger text in your screen Set the your display scaling factor back to 1 Logout and login to your user (or restart) At this point the horizontal ...

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

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 ...

Operating System: Kubuntu 19.04 KDE Plasma Version: 5.15.5 KDE Frameworks Version: 5.57.0 Qt Version: 5.12.2 Kernel Version: 5.0.0-15-generic OS Type: 64-bit I've checked with Dolphin, Kate and Gwenview. I think the problem is with the ☰ button in your title bar. Its presence suppresses the appearance of the horizontal menu. Remove it by opening System ...

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 ...

In systemsettings5, go to workspace->window management->task switcher. Here, under "Visualisation", try choosing something different from the drop-down (for example, I had the problem you describe when "Cover switch" was selected). Click Apply in the lower right corner. Then, bring up the run dialog (alt+f2 unless you changed the hotkey) and enter kwin_x11 --...

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 ...

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 should use journalctl...one of the best things about systemd is that all the logs are in one place...gone are the days of searching for files. try: journalctl -f | grep --line-buffered kde I also recomend this article. Shows all the great things you can do with jounralctl.

thanks for the patch, it works like a charm! same to handle the physical power key: Keys.onPressed: { + if (event.key == 16777399) performOperation("suspendToRam") confirmed to work on kded5 5.67.0 and plasmashell 5.17.5 (Gentoo).
