For some reason one my laptop with KDE Neon (Upgraded to 18.04) the widget is waaaaay too small and I can't type anything. Any help with that?

Typing inside the plasmoid is currently not supported.
You can resize the plasmoid by first unlocking the widgets (from the right-click-menu on desktop or panel) and then clicking and holding for 2-3 seconds, similar to how it is done for other plasmoids. Thanks.

On an Ubuntu system the user mus be running "Zesty" or newer, as the qml-module-qmltermwidget1.0 app is not available on older versions, including LTS. Just a heads-up.

It is quite nice, but lacks two features:
