Is there a CLI window management tool for KDE

I had used `wmctrl` but that doesn't seem to work with KDE Plasma. Are there any equivalent alternatives?

Re: Preparing for Mint to drop the KDE distro

Oh crap! I just came to KDE because Ubuntu dropped features I relied on and Cinnamon doesn't offer them. What's the timeline for this?

Re: Meta key stops working for Application Launcher

Had the same issue; super key stopped activating the launcher. I removed the panel, r-clicked the desktop and added a new default panel.

How to auto select frequently used apps in the Start menu...

Is there a way to auto select the most frequently used apps when typing into the Start menu? When I type `chr`, Chrome is not auto selected. I have to arrow down to it, or type the full name.

Is it possible to adjust the strength of the 'Prevent focus stealing' setting?

I use focus-follows-mouse and its set to 'sloppy' in Mint. This works well for most things so far. What it fails at is preventing focus stealing when appropriate.

Re: Need help installing Linux Mint, all intel agencies trying to stop me

I had a little trouble with a USB but simply ensuring BIOS was set to EUFI and using a USB2 port solved it.
I created a bootable USB using the DD command.

Bootable ISO->USB

Code: Select all

 sudo dd if=/path/to/image.iso of=/dev/sdb
