    Phoronix: KDE System Settings Now Shows Basic Hardware/Software Details, Wayland Improvements

    There is one month to go until KDE's annual Akademy developer conference in Milan while open-source contributors to this desktop environment remain hard at work over the summer on making various improvements...

    Awesome. I remember trying to use the keyboard cursor feature but since I was using libinput I couldn't do so.

      What we need is also a easy way to change the computer (host) name in the System Settings.

        I remember using this feature back with Windows 95 and was wondering if any OS supported it afterwards, on Linux (2007+) it never worked for me.

          Nice to see them adding back features that have gone kaput slowly but surely!

            And as far as I know, KDE doesn't have a virtual keyboard, which is a big omission, IMHO.

              I didn't know that this kInfoCenter exists, I was looking for something like that a couple months ago

                Start KDE/Plasma or a program with the following environment variable

                Code:
                QT_IM_MODULE=qtvirtualkeyboard

                But, yeah, that shoud ideally be something that can be set under Accessibility Settings or Input Devices

                Oh, that needs the program "qt5-virtualkeyboard" installed.

                  It does, but only the login and lock screens currently. I don't care as nothing (even on GNOME) beats onBoard anyway.

                    It's probably enabled by default on touchscreen-equipped devices, where it belongs...
