    I had a few other build issues that had to be resolved, like one package that wanted to install a Python override to /usr and some projects needed to use ${KDE_INSTALL_APPDIR} for their .desktop file location.
    If i'm not wrong only libsignon-glib is trying to install some files to /usr other than that none given similar error to me

    Is there a way to build/install for Plasma 6 as a second DE option along with Plasma 5? I just don't want to install Plasma 6 over Plasma 5.
    That's how it works with kdesrc-build and how I'm doing it right now. It compiles and installs the everything where you tell it and then it has a script to add the kdesrc-build envrionment to your login manager. This is a good place to start.

    You can add these to you global section for a bit of optimization:

    Code:
        cmake-options -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release
    
        make-options -march=znver4 -mtune=znver4 -O3
    
        configure -march=znver4 -mtune=znver4 -O3​
    When building the whole KDE project I had to comment out kdepim since I couldn't fix its build errors.

    Use any linux distribution inside your terminal. Enable both backward and forward compatibility with software and freedom to use whatever distribution you’re more comfortable with. Mirror available...

    Performance is another one.

    It's not my problem other vendors make such shit cards for AI workloads. Intel as well, not just AMD, so not hating on either.

    I don't give a shit about gaming btw.

    Not that I know of. If it's really important to you, then you could try editing the plasma config file that contains the panel and the widgets in it and duplicate stuff there.
    However, if you do so, make sure you create backups before doing that, in case you make a mistake.

    Actually don't know if you would be faster that way, but in principle it should be possible that way.
    Yeah, I've known about that possibility but I have been too "lazy" to take the time to look at and potentially learn how to manipulate that config file lol I think it's time I finally do it so that I can backup/migrate my customizations and have more understanding of what I'm doing lol

    I think the issue I've had with digging into the config file is that it feels like such a core feature (to me at least) to have and it's absence stands in such stark contrast to the rest of the epic configurability of plasma. It's things like this that really make me want to learn coding so I could contribute it 🙂

    It's too bad Linux doesn't follow his own advice.
    Nvidia is the most used GPU on Windows by far. If Linux wants users, it has to support it, unless it wants to stay at 2% of users forever.

    DLSS 3.5 works as well except for frame generation. Obviously FSR is available as an alternative in many games.
