Hi Latte Dock ver. 0.7.78+git20180318.1832-0~ubuntu17.10 works great with Plasma 5.12.3, however, using this version I can't open the settings menu any more doing ar right click on the dock. Anything changed or is it an issue with Latte?

Probably you are using a different kde frameworks version than the one the package you installed was built.

Thanks for your comment. Obviously, that was the reaseon. After upgrading botjh Plasma and LD everything works perfectly again.

Hi. I had the same problem. Try to delete the folder ~/.cache/lattedock and restart the dock. It worked for me. ;)

Hi, I just installed Plasma 5.12 on my Kubuntu system. Now my Latte Dock soes not start any more because of a segmentation fault. Unfortunately, the new latte plasmoid does not provide by far the features the app does. Any solution or workaround except for using the plasmoid?

Hi. I had a problem running Latte on left screen on KDE Neon. The hidden dock would not reappear unless changing screens or activities. For anyone experiencing the same problem, the fix that worked for me was to turn off: "Behave as normal dock window" in Settings/Tweaks. All good now.

You dont have to disable the "Behave as normal dock window" option. You can just disable all touch gestures from plasma systemsettings, more info at: https://github.com/psifidotos/Latte-Dock/wiki/F.A.Q.#q-my-left-dock-behaves-strangely-from-plasma-510-and-beyond-can-i-fix-this

Didn't work. I looked at the plasma systemsettings as suggested and found that none of the touchscreen swipe settings was in use. Anyway I am quite satisfied. The dock works fine with "Behave as normal dock window" off

Hello,
I have installed and used Latte v. 0.6.2 for OS Leap 42.3, downloaded from the repositories of audoban. It seems to work fine but the application has a bug which disables the key shortcut FN+Play/Pause. This is annoying because it does not work for any multimedia application!
I go back to Plank because it does not show this behavior.
I have KDE Plasma 5.8.

I love the latte dock, but it could use with an update that includes the option for "windows go over". As a temporary solution, I used the widget that is supposed to be "just for testing". I understand that many people want their windows to extend to the whole of their monitor. I think it would get more use if it had this feature as an option.

Thanks for your work on this, really nice Dock. I am running it on Fedora 25. I had to install a LOT of dependancies before I could even compile the dock, but got there eventually after a bit of searching. I saw a comment/issue (203 i think) on github about the issue with where it is putting the QML folder on Fedora, which is a problem I had to begin with, but I resolved it by symlinking the folder into the location you mentioned. (e.g. instead of /usr/lib64/qml/org/kde/latte I created a symlink in /usr/lib64/qt5/qml/org/kde to point to the location of the latte folder which has resolved the problem for me). I'm not sure why latte dock compiles this way in Fedora, because all other qt5 apps using these qml files store them in the right place. The only issue I have now is that I can't seem to get it to autostart without manually configuring it in KDE settings, but that's minor because I have manually configured it now. Thanks again and keep up the good work

update to v0.8.6 13 hours ago

* fix previews that broke after kde frameworks 5.55 update
* fix shortcuts behavior for applets when using "Multiple" layouts

update to v0.8.5 20 days ago

* FIX: important improvements for fillWidth(s)/Height(s) applets. Latte now
tries to use plasma panels as an example in order to provide very similar experience
with its Latte panels
* FIX: adjust Latte taskmanager in order to support new Plasma 5.15 Virtual Desktops interface
* improve: splitters positioning during startup for Justify alignment
* improve: --replace option in order to restart Latte properly for all systems
* fix: maximum length ruler behavior for Latte panels
* fix: create autostart folder when missing from user folder

update to v0.8.4 1 month ago

* FIX: restore mouse wheel action to activate your tasks that broke with v0.8.3
* FIX: support fillWidth(s)/Height(s) applets in Left/Center/Right alignments, add a plasma taskmanager to see what happens
* FIX: do not break applets order in Justify alignment when some of the applets in the layout are not found in the system
* fix: a crash that was related to grouped tasks
* fix: improve launchers synchronization between different docks/panels

update to v0.8.3 2 months ago

* FIX: support multi-screen plasmoids that use plasmoid.screenGeometry such as plasma pager, plasma taskmanagers etc. Latte did not update the plasmoid.screenGeometry value properly in previous versions
* FIX: do not crash when moving launchers that are being synced between multiple docks/panels
* FIX: make sure that launchers order between synced docks/panels is always the current one after the user has ended its dragging
* FIX: support fillWidth/Height plasmoids better (such as plasma taskmanagers), now such applets can be added for all alignments including Left/Center/Right
* FIX: do not show the warning message "Your layout file is broken" when the statement is not valid. This check validates that the containments and applets ids are unique in a layout file but the way this was implemented in the past it was returning false results in some cases

update to v0.8.2 3 months ago

* FIX: wrong placement of docks during startup for multi-screen environments
* FIX: show explicit docks automatically when their corresponding screen is added in a multi-screen environment
* fix: open files properly when dropping them on launchers
* fix: improve behavior according to Fitt's Law when shrinking panel margins
* fix: dont hide previews when hovering player buttons
* fix: update delete icons to plasma design
* fix: dont break BorderlessMaximized window default value

I love it! Q: Why my Latte is only v0.7.4 and there are no updates? I'm using official Kubuntu repos. Will it be updated with Kubuntu 19.04 or KDE Plasma 5.13?

product-maker aemstuz Dec 28 2018

- Definitely needs more work. Placing more than one plasmoid into a dock is very annoying. You have to re-open configuration of the dock every time you want to do it. Another pain in the neck is that it does not respect already inserted panels and icon grid. Therefore, placing it near icons or panels produces mess in your desktop.
