"make capslock an additional Ctrl" option was removed in the latest update

Running Endeavour OS Linux and just updated to plasma 6.0.5, framework 6.3.0, Qt version 6.7.1 on Wayland. I use capslock strictly as my brain refuses to learn using shift (I do touch type no problem), but as well know the capslock is very slow on Linux which always results in text like THis. So, I've found a fix for it online...

The thing is that I don't need the option "Make Caps Lock act as an additional Ctrl modifier, but keep identifying as Caps Lock"

The one I need is gone for some reason. I need the "make caps additional Ctrl"

penquin OP , (edited )
@penquin@lemm.ee avatar

I want it to act as an additional Ctrl so I can fix the slow response of caps lock to prevent THis behavior

I'll check this out. Thank you.

We are looking for a new set of Community KDE Goals to work on.

What should KDE focus on over the next two years? Are you ready to share your vision, time and stamina to push KDE to the next level?

Let's evolve KDE together! Find out more here: https://blog.lydiapintscher.de/2024/06/05/what-should-kde-focus-on-for-the-next-2-years-you-can-propose-a-goal/

An option in the wallpaper settings to have the wallpaper span both monitors is like a dream for me. And if I knew how to code it, I'd start on it right now, but I'll need about a year to learn and do it 😂

I use Firefox with "firefox-pwa" extension and I have zero issues with webapps

I actually tried floorp. It was a pretty good browser.

NO YOU DIDN'T!!!!!!
This is like a dream came true. Can't wait to install it.

Hmmm, this installs a gnome theme. How do I get the breeze theme? Am I missing something?

penquin ,
@penquin@lemm.ee avatar

I did that and it installed. Theme looks a bit rough. X icons are blurry. The menu doesn't look like a plasma menu. It's still missing things. Not sure if I did it wrong, or if that's the theme. I followed the manual installation where I clone then do the git checkout master then run the auto install script.

    But hey, they're still good, they have that green leaf in their windows settings. They're good, right?

    First of all, Manjaro is still on 5.27??????? How is that a "rolling release" distro?

    Second, right click on the panel (task manager) then just drag it to any side you want.

    penquin ,
    @penquin@lemm.ee avatar

    Is this a definition created by the Manjaro devs? Because rolling release means a rolling release. There is no other way around it.

    penquin ,
    @penquin@lemm.ee avatar

    You're welcome

    Manjaro "rolls" very slowly. Plasma 6 was release in February btw.

    Man, I just reported a huge bug on Wayland and I hope it gets fixed. I think plasma doesn't like older AMD gpus and display ports. I have two 4k 27" monitors, one connected through HDMI and the other with DP. Every time the pc suspends and I then wake it up, the monitor with the DP switches to this very low 640x480 resolution that makes things massive and traps the mouse in that monitor. I'd have to fiddle around a little bit to change the display configurations from the panel to release the mouse so I can go to the other monitor and change the resolution back. It's very annoying. That's basically the last remaining issue I have with Wayland. :)

    I put these slides to the max everywhere. There is one in dolphin and one in discover? I think? Wherever I see these, they're going to the max.

    This one is what I'm following to learn. He even has stuff on GitHub about it.

    penquin ,
    @penquin@lemm.ee avatar

    Yeah, it's not that simple. You'd have to keep learning until you get it.

    One of the KDE Plasma features I use almost in daily basis is the MouseMark.

    Go to your settings, in Desktop Effects, Enable the MouseMark (you can change the settings of it in the button in front of it). Then press Meta+Shift and move your mouse to doodle, or press and release Meta+Shift+Ctrl to define beginning and end of an arrow (it will draw the rest.

    Interestingly enough, it have been in Plasma for the past 16 years:

    The webpage of kde.org in Firefox tab, on which I have drawn two red arrows pointing at the "Plasma" word, and hand-drawn a check mark over "for Linux".

    I’ve been using plasma for over 6 years now and I’m just now finding out about this feature.

    There HAS to be a good chunk of the population that are poor as fuck, that way rich folks can keep getting those who work for them by the balls “you fuck around and I’ll hire that person who’s dying to take your job with a lot less pay than you” . Why do you think they hate unions and UBI and other things that could make people live a bit comfortable?

    Here is a good video about it

    @penquin@lemm.ee avatar

    Yup. And they know we know that. It is now officially a fight between us and them, quite literally.

    Is there a way to revert back to Plasma 5.27?

    I don't think is ready for prime time. When I open apps, the title bar goes above the screen space and I can't move or close the app or use the menus.

    @kde

    @penquin@lemm.ee avatar

    Oh boy! Please don’t tell me it’s not usable. There is no way around it when running Arch and it’s derivatives. 😂 I don’t know how long I can hold off on updating.

    penquin ,
    @penquin@lemm.ee avatar

    It depends on the distro you’re running it on. There should be an option on the lock screen to switch to x.

    penquin ,
    @penquin@lemm.ee avatar

    Awesome. That sounds very good to me.

    Ok, hope OP finds this useful then. I suspected that’s what it was, but wanted to make sure with op

    They have no rights to basically enslave people? Is that what they’re bitching about? Businesses who can’t/won’t their employees a living wage shouldn’t exist in the first place. They’re normally those that life can go on without anyway.

    One of these 6 beauties will become the wallpaper for Plasma 6. Which one do you prefer?

    Bottom right or the one above it. I’m a sucker for these cartoony looking wallpapers

    @penquin@lemm.ee avatar

    Good point actually. I hope this has been thought of. I’m backing up those two, too. Thanks for bringing that up.

    Replace “bastard” with “idiot”. It fits much better.

    Where is this? How do they get their water and power? I have so many questions.

    Why does this sound like it’s all made up? lol. I wouldn’t do any of those things for shaving off one day. I don’t want to just switch miseries.

    @penquin@lemm.ee avatar

    Noice. Now, let’s how much shit H&R block and TurboTax will throw at it to make it an absolute shit of a service. freetaxusa ftw.

    penquin OP ,
    @penquin@lemm.ee avatar

    I wouldn’t say switching too much. I probably do it once every two weeks or so. Also, wouldn’t reinstalling the system fix the whole thing? This happens on a fresh install out of the box. Wayland is just out of the question for me now, as I can never keep the 175% scaling.
