    Phoronix: KDE Plasma Now Supports WireGuard, Alt-Tab Switching Improvements

    The WireGuard secure VPN tunnel is not in the mainline kernel yet but the KDE Plasma desktop is the latest project already adding support for it, which can be useful today if making use of WireGuard's DKMS kernel modules...

    I can't believe it. It works!
    I was wondering for months why I cannot simply search like in Cinnamon's file manager.
    This is so counter-intuitive that I din't even try this before.
    I was thinking that in case the search database / cache is empty / outdated, it will auto fall back to on-demand search like in Windows.
    Thanks you very much for this!

    Both are enabled (checkbox is ticked).

    There were also some lines in the "Do not search in these locations" rectangle, which I removed because I want to be able to search everywhere.
    I don't know what else to do.
    In Cinnamon the search was working by default without me doing anything special, but here I find it just disappointing.

    Thank you very much for your good intention!

    Honestly I am still using kfind most of the time. You can now launch it from the search interface. It doesn't depend on an index and has a better UI in my opinion.

    You may use Krusader.

    It works just fine for me on Antergos with all the latest updates \ Dolphin 18.08.3 and Plasma 5.14.3.
    I started with Ubuntu a long time again I have a hard time switching to any other distro that is not Debian based.
    But thanks anyway, maybe one day I'll have the time to try it.

    Wait, so you mean I can't build Plasma from source with all of these additions/improvements? 'Cause that's what *now* refers to. But you're right, I forgot Plasma isn't FOSS.[/s]
    Or you can use nightly builds from Neon Project.Developer Edition.

    Sure, because everybody and their grandmother is cherry picking straight from master.
    Grandmothers wouldn't even know what WireGuard is and maybe not even know about Alt+Tab...

    I'm getting no results for both file names and file contents.
    I still need to open the terminal for file searches. and the browser to search for the search command
    This sucks big time!
    I'm on KDE Neon with latest updates.
    go to System Settings -> Search and ensure "Enable file search" is enabled
