WARNING: KDE/Plasma 5 now forcing update KDE/Plasma 6 - UNSTABLE

Post by pid1 »

I've been monitoring and facing my own issues with the weekend update to KDE Plasma 6 on my systems. It is my recommendation to NOT update at this time if you use your system for daily driving or any other important roles with the Plasma desktop.

The issues seem to affect many users but not all. It affects X11 and Wayland equally. The issues have made my systems unusable until moving the ~/.config directory in it's entirety so previous version settings do not affect the new Plasma 6. After moving the .config directory, the desktop is partially usable.

Please help the Void repo package managers to sort the issues by submitting your problem reports to the Void Linux Github.
Linux/BSD since 2001. Void Linux+KDE/Plasma since 2015. Windows? Not even in a virtual machine :D
