Description:

Excalibur is a simple Launcher with two columns and a search bar on top and a session control (logout, restart, shutdown) on the bottom.
It is based upon kicker and made after the image of the Lancelot menu launcher available for KDE SC 4.

The search uses the global Plasma Search to search for not only applications but also files and recent documents.
Last changelog:

- Fixed removing and adding apps to favorites for specific activities (Plasma 5.12.x)
- Fixed moving of favorites when more then visible (so if you have to scroll down to see other favorites and want to move them around)

look very clean and usefull.

I woulc switch the two rows and have activated by default
Zulest benutzte Anwendungen which would be from my point of view more usefull than pin manuel apps.

On 2 updated installations of Manjaro with KDE 5.12, excalibur's favourites disappear at every login.
Iv' tried both: uninstall plasmoiod, clear all relative folders in home and then install plasmoid again, and "play" with .local/share/kactivitymanagerd/resources/, but nothing works.

It should work with this out of the box. At least I cannot reproduce the issue with Plasma 5.12.5 here.

Can I help you with translation?

Translations are taken from kicker directly. So if you want to help with translations try helping upstream KDE Plasma.

But all the lines in the settings in English. Does it strings from plasmoid?
Also it would be cool if you provide git repo with your addon. I could make a package for my distribution.

Oh. Yeah you are right. I wonder why. Maybe because of the name change for the plugin itself. I am not sure how to solve it yet.
There is no separate git repo for it yet. (we have it in git for the Neptune distro but it comes together with other stuff we ship there)

Doesn't appear to work correctly on Plasma 5.10. I'm not sure why you skipped 5.10 and went straight to 5.11.

/org.kde.plasma.excalibur/contents/ui/MenuRepresentation.qml:53:5: QML Row: Cannot anchor to an item that isn't a parent or sibling.

/org.kde.plasma.excalibur/contents/ui/main.qml:107: TypeError: Property 'initForClient' of object FavoritesModel(0xf6f890c080) is not a function

When I first open the launcher on each login, it starts off really small and only shows the search bar and around 20px under the search bar. Changing a setting and then changing that setting back seems to fix it, but the favourites don't save either when I logout.

It looks really nice and I would love to use it, but I'm gonna have to use something else for now until this gets fixed.

I am sorry to hear that. There is no Plasma 5.10 version as nothing has changed in regards to the menu in Plasma 5.10 compared to 5.9
So basically the 5.9 version works pretty much without an issue on Plasma 5.10.
I have some 5.10.5 plasma versions running here without an issue.
You are the first one reporting on issues with it on Plasma 5.10.

Have you tried out the 5.11 version and see if it maybe works on your setup?
Which version of Plasma 5.10 do you have running?
Which KDE Frameworks version?

Okay well this is weird. I tried the 5.9 version yesterday and I was having all these issues. But today, I reinstalled it and now it is working fine. I did reinstall it yesterday multiple times with no luck, so I'm not really sure why it decided to start working today all of a sudden.

Oh well, I'm happy it's working now. Thanks for creating this :D

Thanks for reporting. The API for the favorites changed in 5.11 again. I uploaded a version compatible 5.11. Please try that.

sorry for the late response, I waited for 5.11.1 to hit stable repos...anyways..
every time I restart plasmashell (or reboot) the favorites seems to reset, well kinda...
it resets back the old/preset favorites alongside mine.
so even when I have removed for example "kate & discover" from favorite list they will comeback every damn time I reboot my system...at least I don't need to re-add anything just remove ;D

(and yes I use the 5.11 version of Excalibur)

"part 2", with p5.11 there is now global favorites and per-activity favorites... for example the simple menu just added this: https://store.kde.org/p/1169537/

Thanks again for your report.
The issue is in the base (kicker) menu that excalibur is based on. At least I can reproduce the issue there too.
