Ever since upgrading to Plasma 6 (fedora 40) my chrome web apps have been misbehaving when I try pinning them to the icon-only task manager (is that still what it's called?)

1.They randomly disappear from taskbar although i have pinned them

2.Sometimes they are there but wont work (i get a weird "chdir: not found" error)

3.Pinned chrome apps work but wont survive reboots.

Have you experienced a similar problem? I've tried both stable and beta versions of Google Chrome.

I am running multiple screens from different brands. Because they are not the same, they must be set to different brightness values to look the same.

The problem is that whenever I boot up, the Plasma brightness setting is changed, or Night Light kicks in, Plasma sets all my screens to the same value. This results in one screen being too bright and the other too dark. Every time this happens I must change the value back manually in my screen's built-in menu, which is annoying.

In the Gamma settings panel there appears to be an upcoming feature where different screens can be set to different values but it is grayed out for the moment (running Plasma 6.0.4 on Tumbleweed).

How do I disable this feature while I'm waiting for the ability to set individual brightness values to individual screens to come around?

I made a simple script and timer for a friend to automatically switch between light and dark theme on Plasma. In case anybody needs this.

In view of the latest news coming out of Microsoft...

Yeah, KDE's Plasma doesn't do that either. Your stuff is safe.

If you don't use Bing with Edge, Microsoft will tell you your computer needs repairing.

They are not wrong.

KDE 5 had a feature in the keyboard shortcuts in settings where you could set a Window Action as a trigger instead of a keyboard shortcut (Documentation in the link). This means that KDE would do something every time a certain window appeared. This was very useful, my use case was changing the TeamViewer authorization prompt to NT logon as I don't use the normal TeamViewer password. I think there should be a workaround if it's truly gone, but for the life of me I can't remember or search for the name of this software that does something every time a certain window is created.

Lately, I found out that Application Launcher also features all the functionality I use from KRunner.

In my particular experience, Application Launcher is snappier at first launch and also returns results rather quickly. For me, this begs an obvious question.

What's the use case for using KRunner over the Application Launcher?

So far I've noticed that pressing Enter on the Calculator results makes the entry be copied on KRunner, but this does not happen for the Application Launcher. I'm certain there must be something else to it, otherwise people would not be using it (even I found myself using it from time to time, but could not understand why).

I have a monitor with multiple modes which include "standard" (good for most things) and "movie". I want to conveniently switch modes when I change programs. Ideally giving keyboard focus to mpv or similar programs would switch the video mode to movie and taking keyboard focus away would switch it to standard.

Is there a way to do this in KDE Wayland? I looked at the "Window Rules" section in the settings but that doesn't seem to support such things. I googled it and there are some viable answers for X11 (like have a script that detects window focus and does what I want) but xdotool etc don't run on Wayland.

Since updating to Plasma 6, the keyboard cursor seems to be focused to some unknown location in emojier. I end up having to press tab twice, to get to search, then press enter, and then I'm able to type. However I can't select any particular emoji via keyboard anymore, only by mouse.

Before the update, it used to default to search, and a tab would place you into the emoji box so you could press enter on one to copy it to clipboard.

So I have three separate exploratory questions: I'd like to know if there's any configuration for this utility? And if I can't configure it back to the old behavior, can I fallback to a prior version/how? Is there any alternative software for emoji picking maybe?

I'm using Kalk and when I try to use the letter C to delete the current calculation, it puts 1 C in the calculator, and when I try the delete key, it doesn't do anything. Does anyone know what the shortcut is to delete the current calculation?

Just updated to Plasma 6, and got a question: is there a way to make the bottom panel keep at the bottom (like when fullscreen windows are opened) and not float regardless of windows?

Just always stay there without moving, like in Plasma 5.

Or is it dictated by the theme/hardcoded into Plasma 6?

I have no idea how long this has been a thing, and maybe every clipboard works that way, not just Plasma, and I never realized it. It also lets you do things like Rt-click on it and do the regular operations like Search in Firefox. Spaces aren't preserved unless you specifically select them but search engines seem to be able to sort out the words usually.

I post this in case you haven't been part of the 10,000 this day already, like me.

Edit: seems to work in Firefox and LibreOffice, but not Kate or Okular. I'd love to see this as a general feature, it's handy as heck.
