How to configure KDE 5.20 taskbar

How do you remove old 5.19 icons from the taskbar?
Also, when you add the new 5.20 icons to taskbar they are smaller and are set to the right side, how do you move them since 5.20 has no controls compared to 5.19.

Icons that you did not install yourself should automatically be updated. But you could try the following…

Log out of Plasma and log into a tty ─ press Ctrl+Alt+F2. Then, issue the following command… :arrow_down:

rm -f ~/.cache/*.kcache

Now press Alt+F1 and log back into Plasma.

As for this… :arrow_down:

Right-click the desktop and choose “Enter Edit Mode”. Then right-click the panel and select “Edit Panel”. When you’re done, right-click the desktop again and choose “Leave Edit Mode” or “Exit Edit Mode” ─ whatever it’s called.

Edit mode is greyed out. Can’t use it

Issue the following command in a terminal… :arrow_down:

qdbus org.kde.plasmashell /PlasmaShell evaluateScript "lockCorona(false)"

Now the option will be selectable again.

Logging out of Plasma and into full screen terminal doesn’t let me copy command.

You don’t need to switch to a tty to type the above command. Just open up a Konsole window or press F12 to open up the Yakuake terminal.

You only need to log in at a tty (and while logged out of the desktop) in order to delete the cache files, and that’s so that you can force Plasma to rebuild its cache upon your next GUI login.
