Thread: Print Manager Plasmoid

  1. #1

    Default Print Manager Plasmoid

    Just upgrade to 4.11 and it seems to be a nice improvement. Nepomuk is finally not leaking like crazy for me and I've noticed less memory usage all round. I honestly think its a great KDE release but I have hit something that frustrates me incredibly.

    The new print manager plasmoid! I love the new print manager that came with KDE 4.10 (and plasmoid) but the updated plasmoid from 4.11 does something silly. I use the Widget Dashboard as way to control and monitor parts of my computer. Suddenly with 4.11 the plasmoid is only an icon and must be clicked to expand into the actual plasmoid. This makes sense for the panel use case but not for the dashboard use case. I used to have a nice, easily accessible plasmoid on the dashboard but alas no more.

    Previously, it was expanded and fit very nicely into my somewhat OCD grid that I was using.

    Anybody know how to get the previous behaviour back?

    I tried to contact the dev directly. If nothing comes of it then I'll probably take your advice.

    I always hate complaining especially when the software is provided freely to me.

    Submitting a bug report is not complaining. It is about describing and issue and providing info that will (hopefully) help with its resolution. Part of participating in the open source community.
