In Kubuntu 20.04, upon selecting an item in the popup list, the corresponding *.desktop file is opened in the text editor. To have the widget launch the application, the *.desktop file has to be made executable. Most *.desktop files are in /usr/share/applications and are not all consistently executable. The widget should unconditionally launch the selected application.

Scratch that. With the latest version the *.desktop file opens in the editor even if it is executable.

I cannot give the 10 points because I like to have a better way to order the apps.

maybe an auto sort by name will be enough.

thank's for your work

Hi,
lately I noticed that when I launch an app from Popup Menu, it opens the .desktop file in a text editor instead of launching the app.

I have the same issue. The desktop files are all opened in kate text editor.

I installed popup laucher manually, because trying to install with KDE (system tray->add application->load new widget) resulted in a "file not found" error. Maybe this is relevant?

I have a German Desktop, translated the above menu/message, the English may be somewhat different, but I hope you understand ...

Hm, that sounds like a plasma issue, not sure what I could do about that.

The fact is that it only happens when I open an app from Popup Menu. When I click on a desktop file from Dolphin, for instance, it behaves correctly and launches the app.
Is there anything I can do to help you?

That's a good idea, I added an issue for it on github. But I don't have much time at the moment, so don't expect anything, sorry :(.

I tried a few times to install these extension on my KDE 5.10, but nothing happens. I can't, I think it's a compatibility issue. Please, fix it! :)

Oh my. I've been looking for this for about a year. I love new Plasma abilities and how it looks, but i hated it's disability to make user feel satisfied when trying to launch apps. Launcher are ugly in this DE, and this addon helps one to categorize launchers by their options. Good luck man (guessing), u did a good job here
