Unable to create io-slave. Unknown protocol 'tg'

i tried to install the applet from firefox but clicking the install button did nothing

trying to join the telegram from firefox let me choose application so it works fine it firefox

You have to install a package called ocs-url from the AUR if you want that to work. :arrow_down:

pamac build ocs-url


thank you so much

but why isn’t that preinstalled then ?

even though it fixes the issue with plasma applet it doesnt fix the error with telegram though . Is that a bug of google-chrome ?

It’s an AUR package, not a Manjaro package, and it is deemed to not be an essential package, given that there are yet other ways of installing widgets and that ocs-url is indeed already available through the AUR.

Still, perhaps it would indeed be a good idea to include it. :wink: Feel free to post a #site-feedback:feature-request, if you like. :stuck_out_tongue:

P.S.: The upcoming Plasma 5.23 will by default allow for setting the panel transparency, presumably via a widget like that one.

Hmm… Hard to say. It depends on how you installed Google Chrome, because that’s not a Manjaro package ─ Chromium is, but the proprietary Chrome is not.

If you installed Chrome as a Snap or a FlatPak, then you needn’t look any further, because those are containerized applications. They don’t have any access to the rest of the system’s resources, and their inter-process communication with the rest of the system is highly limited.
