  • Wow!

    That looks really neat!:grinning:

    While I am not a KDE user (I still prefer Gnome) I’m glad to see the improvements the other has to offer. Who knows? Perhaps one day I’ll switch. At any rate, it’s good to see open-source counterparts flourishing and improving:slight_smile:

    Just have some relatives over. Be back in about a week

  • @A-User , you might be interested in adding it atop of your existing DE (is it Gnome)? , or by creating a separate partition.
    sudo pacman -S antergos-kde-setup
    There s mixed opinions as to how reliable is to have mixed GTK & QT libraries, but I myself didn t regret following the majority of advice and installed it atop of Gnome. almost 1.5 years back in a secondary laptop. So far so good. No issues, apart from having to re-apply Conky Manager whenever I switch DEs. Just make sure you have a / partition not less than 20 Gbs.
    Coming from Gnome, you might also like to have a visually (if not improved) similar application launcher:

    In this case, you should also install :
    sudo pacman -S kdeplasma-addons
    Of course, you can configure it as you please without the need of extensions (whenever available & maintained). Here s mine:

  • I am currently exploring Deepin, but Gnome and it are fighting over file managers and fonts right now:smile:

    Would “creating a separate partition” solve this issue? If so, I might install Deepin AND KDE (for a time at least).

    Thanks for the info!

    Run it seperatly within its own partition. How could one DE interfere with another this way?

  • Wow 5.10.
    They should have sorted out some of the more annoying bugs in 5.9 instead. The Clock e.G. still is oversized.
    Let’s see how it works once it has arrived.

    I’m sorry to be a bit slow on the uptake, but I’m not quite sure about how to go about doing this.

    Any help would be appreciated:slight_smile:

    Plasma 5.10 has arrived to stable Arch and Antergos repos.

    So far, continues to work normally, without problems.

    As always, it has overwritten KWin’s cube cap picture - the /usr/share/kwin/cubacap.png file - with the default blue K logo. Replace /usr/share/kwin/cubacap.png with your favorite png image, to get the preferred cube cap picture back again.
