    Plasma 6 has so many fucking bugs. Holy shit it drives me crazy.

    One thing is, that when starting Apex Legends, all Windows just suddenly start to loose the understanding on whether they should go below or over a Window when focused. They suddenly go below other windows when focused.

    Sound System Notification sound too loud? Well, shit for you, you can’t make it quieter now.

    Having two monitors with each a panel on the bottom? After a suspend and wake up, its possible that your main panel or right one just goes inbetween those two Monitors.

      Linux users telling you to use their new cool Desktop Environment is always bait.

      Fr if I turn on my laptop with a monitor connected, the taskbar will be on the monitor, regardless of the settings, every time. Also Bluetooth definitively died.
      I’ve been thinking of switching distros for a while, maybe a fresh install helps?

      Actua, plasma 5 was exactly as wonky with the panels already, especially when using different monitor setups in office and at home

    Of course the cube doesn’t work for me as I have six desktops and as we all know, cubes only have four sides 🙄

    Why is everyone so hyped about this? As far as I remember the cube has been there since… I can’t even remember, I know KDE 3.5 had the cube but I’m not sure if it existed before, so it’s literally been there for at least two decades.

      I remember those nights configuring compiz to perfection. It had amazing look and feel. It was a sight to behold.

      Then I realized how useless it was and reverted it all to standard 2D workspaces.

        I first beheld the glory of the cube in 2009. It was transcendental. I almost felt my soul leaving my body and ascending to a higher plane of consciousness, where few have treaded and those that truly grasp its majesty, yet fewer still. I was swept up in the spiritual, yet fleeting, ephemeral, and mercurial experience that was like no other. We were no more than ants trying to understand Einstein’s Relativity, or dung beetles oblivious to the sonorous rapture of Mozart.

        I flipped the cube for a couple more times to show it to my unimpressed wife, and promptly never booted into Ubuntu since.

        I was a little late getting to the compiz party but I used it as my default WM for years and years. It is still being updated and is now extremely stable (which I understand was the biggest issue in its early days). I have surrendered to the darkside though and just use KDE cause it does everything that almost anyone could need now and it does it pretty good.

        I havent thought about compiz since college. I was so cool with my vdm. Until it was time to play WoW and I had to boot to windows. Wasnt too bad, though, got it down to a few minutes by disabling all that shiny nonsense in 7 to make it look like xp.

      It was dropped from Kwin for awhile. Now it’s back.

      I am pretty sure Plasma 5 didn’t have it by default. There might have been a 3rd-party extension, though.

    I have setup the cube to a hotkey and only used it to test if it is working. It’s amazing, but kind of useless. :D

    I admit that I’m a little disappointed I can’t set it as my virtual desktop switch animation, and that it defaults to pointing down when invoked, but I am hopeful it’s just a matter of time on those details. :)

    It ain’t quite the compiz/beryl cube, nor even what I remember as the last iteration of the kwin cube, but it’s a step in the right direction!

          Thanks!

          I need to redesign my site one day. Simplify it. The current design is from 2008, using design features (like the striped backgrounds) that were popular back then.

        Ohhh man I wasn’t ready for how nostalgic the screenshots would make me feel. My friend from school told me about Ubuntu and OSS for the first time, and he came over to my house so we could mess around with the live CD. That’s what Ubuntu looked like back then!

        How did you get a single letter domain? I thought all single letters were reserved by ICANN in 1993. Did you buy it before that happened?

          ICANN doesn’t run country code TLDs. I bought it through an aftermarket domain sale site (like Sedo).

          I’ve actually got three of them. d.sb, d.sv and d.ls.

          d.sb was around $4000 if I remember correctly.

      Exactly, I never had the zoom-out cube, just the desktop switch version, and it was painful to lose. I was so looking forward to that in 6 but no. 😢 The zoom cube is fun too though.

        I have noticed you can switch desktops after invoking with whatever keyboard shortcuts you have designated for that. I’m betting we get it as a switcher choice in an update or three…

    If I learned anything when using Blender, it’s that the first thing you do is to delete the default cube.
