Am using plasma 5.24.5 too and dont have such issue(s), this widget requires ksysguard to work and I dont think ksysguard is "fased out" since code is still being committed to its repository (https://invent.kde.org/plasma/ksysguard). Plasma just got another/new processes/resources monitor, but new doesn't mean better or the "old" one is bad.
It might be a plasma or a local bug, because as mentioned, I dont have such issues - Jun 08 2022

again the plus sign doesn't show: a plus sign should be added at the end of the command. Sorry for the noise! - Dec 04 2021

There should be a at the end of the command, somehow, the is eaten:


find .local/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.plasma.systemloadviewer/ -type f -name '*.qml' -exec sed -ie 's/org\.kde\.ksysguard/org.kde.plasma-systemmonitor/' '{}' - Dec 04 2021

Hello dear community,
To answer the users, who want other apps started:
If someone is willing and able to implement what application is started, "org.kde.ksysguard", "org.kde.plasma-systemmonitor", "what ever other app", please do add a config in the UI, instead of replacing a hardcoded one with another hardcoded one.
Such approach doesn't solve the "problem", since there always will be someone who says, I prefer this or that app. The only solution in my opinion, which will work for every one, is to choose an app in the settings, with choice between ksysguard (default, because it is the upstream default), the new system-monitor and to make sure, it will work in the future (who knows what other apps will come), let the user type the name of the app to start.
With that said, am not going to change the code to start a specific app, sorry, but changing it manually is as easy as:
find ~/.local/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.plasma.systemloadviewer/ -type f -name '*.qml' -exec sed -ie 's/org\.kde\.ksysguard/org.kde.plasma-systemmonitor/' '{}' - Dec 04 2021

I wouldn't say it depends on ksysguard, it just starts whatever application it is "told" to. If you want you can change what application it starts, just look at my reply to "danilo-bc" from before one mount.
Ksysguard will still be available in the repositories, even after the change to the "new system monitor". I personally prefer ksysguard for various reasons: It is well tested, has some features that don't exist (yet) in the new one, like hovering on a process to show the process that started it (parent process), among other details. It is configurable, well the new one also, to some extent.
Honestly, I would prefer a setting in the UI to chose which application is started, instead of changing "hard coding" it. But since I can't code it myself, it is up to the community, if some one is willing to contribute, the link to the source code it the top of this page. - May 18 2021

Hi, I created a repository to hold the widget. Would you please send a MR there. By the way, anyone with ideas for improvements is welcome to send a merge request. Link at the top. Thanks. - Apr 13 2021

Hi, could you please submit a proper patch (lines seem here mixed) and upload it somewhere like github/gitlab etc.?
A description of what the patch would do and what would be the end result (screenshot may be?) would be very nice! Thank you.
I failed to get a patch from what you send, patch/git patch can't process it... I thought about creating agit repo and upload somewhere, where people can contribute/ask questions etc. opendesktop.net would be a possibility. What do you think? - Apr 11 2021

Am afraid I cant do that. With updates I meant updates from original authors (source link at the top) which I doubt will happen. So just change it and enjoy :-)
If anyone else has the skills to implement it, I would be happy to adapt the change so that we all get it. - Apr 07 2021

You are right, my bad, I copy/pasted the file name and forgot to adjust. Thanks for the hint. - Apr 07 2021

Thanks for the feedback. You can change it to open the new system monitor like this:
1- Locate the plasmoid. Either /home/yourUserName/.local/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.plasma.systemloadviewer or if installed system wide /usr/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.plasma.systemloadviewer

2- Locate the following file inside folder from step 1: contents/ui/SystemLoadViewer.qml
The full path would be then:
/usr/share/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.plasma.systemloadviewer/contents/ui/SystemLoadViewer.qml (if system wide installed) or:
/home/yourUserName/.local/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.plasma.systemloadviewer/contents/ui/SystemLoadViewer.qml

3- Find and replace the following in two lines:
Find: kRun.openService("org.kde.ksysguard")
Replace with: kRun.openService("org.kde.plasma-systemmonitor.desktop")
As I said, there should be two lines, just replace the name of application in kRun.openService("newAppNameHere")

Note: Keep in mind to do this again IN CASE the widget is updated.
Thanks again for your feedback. I hope I could help. - Apr 07 2021

Thanks for your input. This widget is the "original" widget from KDE devs without any modifications that I know of.
So am not going to add any changes from my side, not because I don't want, but because I don't have the skills. If there is an update from the original author(s), I would be happy to update it here as well. Every one (who can) is welcome to contribute changes/improvements... - Feb 16 2021

It looks quite nice!
I have a question to the position of the search box and the categories:
Is it (currently) possible to position the search box (plus reboot,logout...) at the bottom and categories to the left?. If not : would you consider it for future releases? Thanks. - Jan 30 2017
