Just to say that a few Plasma bugs/wishes are likely to be recurring themes on bugs.kde.org. Rest assured we know about them.
- Background image sometimes doesn’t load, and the background preview in the “Configure Desktop” dialog doesn’t always update. Fixed for 4.0.1.
- Applethandles don’t always disappear when you move the cursor off the applet. This is due to a deficiency in the Qt Graphics Canvas hover event handling.
We’re looking into either a sensible work around or for TrollTech to fix it.We have a 99% workaround for 4.0.1 (see aseigo’s comment on this post).
- No panel configuration (apart from adding & removing applets). It’s coming.
- If your desktop crashes (or you kill it with killall plasma – handy tip: use kquitapp) part way through your first run, only part of the config gets saved and you no longer have a panel. Fixed for 4.0.1 (see aseigo’s comment on this post).
