    Phoronix: KDE Plasma Lands More Fixes, Theme Handling Improvements

    Even amid all the April software releases, KDE developers remain very busy working on their open-source desktop stack...

    Cool!
    The best desktop environment (at least for me) gets even better each week.
    Really nice, many thanks to all KDE contributors!

      moving back to KDE has been a very buggy experience, but in the end it still feels like home, I would like to try wayfire, but use nested sway for quite a bit of use, and it seems like they don't always like to co-exist sadly.

        Best DE ever, bar none. Powerful, configurable and fast.

        Many thanks to all involved, be they developers or supporters, in one way or another.

        Cheers.

          I think I found a new 15 minute bug or I suck at bug tracker searches. A little while ago I extracted a large archive and got that extracting popup followed by the finished extraction popup with the hamburger menu. When I clicked on the hamburger menu of the finished extraction popup and selected "Move to Trash" it moved ~/Downloads (as in the entire folder) to the bin instead of ~/Downloads/GE-Proton7-15.tar.gz. Happened in the system tray notification as well after I restored my Downloads folder (wanted to see if it was the popup, tray, or both that were moving the folder and not the archive like I'd expect).

          Kind of had a bit of a WTF moment when my Downloads tab in Dolphin went blank this morning updating Proton-GE.

          Thankfully holding down shift to actually delete didn't work, whew, and I was able to quickly restore it all from the trash can.

            OT but you may be interested in ProtonUp-Qt. Cheers.

                Thanks. Nice one. I had no idea about those other projects so that was cool to learn about, too.

                  Looks like I can drop the ugly plasmashell --replace workaround after log-in for battery status now, nice.

                    I don't get what people find so buggy about it, especially if you don't use Wayland. The only really annoying bug I experience (yes, it's been reported...) is how pop-ups in Dolphin mess with being able to right-click while using Wayland. From what I recall, this is a Qt+Wayland issue and not a KDE bug.
                    There are 3 other bugs that come to mind but one of them is avoidable and another is more weird than a problem, and all 3 are Wayland-specific. Otherwise, my experience has been very stable.
