    Funny seeing "improved notifications" in there. Yesterday I got an update to KDE Frameworks and it broke that: notifications (and not only) no longer respect the DPI setting. I'll see if upgrading from 5.19 to 5.20 fixes it.

    Edit: Scratch that, it seems to be working fine today, after reboot. I only logged out yesterday, strange that didn't reload Frameworks cleanly.

      It looks terrible. So many buttons, toolbars, menus, its all so cluttered, it looks like a nightmare. It must be very daunting for new users,

      To its defense, it is cool that it has Wayland support, and the list of KDE applications is really impressive!

        I can no longer get the bar of buttons on the windows. the windows are steady and no longer manageable. A mess of big proportion.

          That's the point of KDE, isn't it? If I want a minimalistic DE I pick one of the countless others.

            Is kwin_x11 missing from your installation? Some users reported that in Reddit; it's a distro issue (bad packaging).

              Probably someone has provided the solution to the trouble in the new release. I've just seen the KDe blog. Newer Kwin-x11 package has been wrongly missed from the repository. The users able to try it by Muon or Discovery, manually install Kwin-x11 package. This problem seems to affect KDe Neon users for sure.
