I’m a newbie to Manjaro, I was using (and still am on other machines) debian, but I thought I give it a try. And I have to say: Manjaro is giving me a hard time (starting already with installation, see different post).
I’m running the XFCE version 18 of Manjaro now and I’m still in the phase of configuring the system to my liking. One thing is to use dolphin and krusader (yes both) file managers. Unfortunately I was fighting for days now to fix an issue.
Issue: There is no file transfer indication not even to talk about the file transfer popup/window
Note 1: No, don’t tell me
- to copy (big) files on the cmd line
- that copy is fast any you just don’t see it
- that there is no need for that
- or that there is a notification icon somewhere…
I found a lot of suggestions, one more stupid/dump/ignorant than the other. Guys: Don’t try to solve issues the way you would like to have a thing working but listen to the people having the issue… try to understand them. There is nothing against politely making suggestions to solve it in a different way.
So, the fact is, that is NO indication what so ever when copy/move files with dolphin or krusader.
The solution is easy: It is missing “kuiserver” for this notifications as stated here: https://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=225&t=121466
I came to that page from another guy asking why with an update of his Manjaro XFCE it tries to pull in plasma-workspace replacing kuiserver.
Workaround: Install the plasma-workspace manually
Solution: Add dependency on plasma-workspace for (at least) dolphin and krusader
If there is another solution for that, I would be glad to know about.
