    Default Thermal Monitor Plasmoid

    I have a couple of these running on my desktop but for some reason if I log out or reboot, when the desktop comes back up they are off and I have to "Reload Temperature Sources" by right clicking them each individually and choosing that menu item. Then they display the temps.

    Why is this? Can I set them to automatically load at login?

    How did you install them? If you just run them as apps they act like apps. Did you install by unlocking desktop and adding widgets??

    I did put them on the desktop by right clicking it and choosing add widgets yes if that's what you mean, however otherwise well, I'm not sure. My first reaction was that they were there when I installed Tumbleweed, but after some though I'm not so sure. If not it would have had to have been done later with Yast.

    Hello,

    I had the same problem for Leap 15.0/15.1 with the plasmoid Thermal Monitor after a KDE Plasma update. It's finally a known bug!
    The solution was given in this page: https://github.com/kotelnik/plasma-a...ment-500287155
    You have to load the following file ~/.local/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.thermalMonitor/contents/ui/main.qml to edit the line 58 as follows:

    You must add the text " []" (without quotes) at the end of line 58. You can launch Dolphin in Super User mode and double-clic on main.qml file or in terminal use the command:
    Code:
    sudo nano ~/.local/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.thermalMonitor/contents/ui/main.qml
    I've tested, it worked for me on Leap 15.1!

    In the solution for bug with the Thermal Monitor plasmoid, given in https://github.com/kotelnik/plasma-a...ment-500287155 root privileges are used to edit main.qml file, but I think it's not necessary because it's an user config file...
