After troubling to make my 34 inch external monitor work, scaling issues and performance issues with Nvidia GPU. I have finally fixed major part of them and I fixed the scaling issue with " kcmshell5 fonts " command on terminal and forcing the dpi to 96 made all my scaling issues on title bars…etc fixed. During those three days, I tried Kubuntu, Open Suse Tumbleweed, KDE Neon…etc and finally was able to install Manjaro KDE with my problems relatively fixed on X11. I prefer Manjaro for now as I am using the Gnome version on my internal hdd, so I am getting used to pamac commands, especially I like the pamac search function, so as a noob, confusing myself with opensuse or kubuntu package installers was not necessary. So I am pretty happy now and have new questions.
I sometimes install themes from the GUI, but sometimes I find some themes on github and I install them but I don’t know where to put all the folders. I mean, the global themes if i am not wrong, are placed in /usr/.shared/plasma/desktopthemes but how about the other theme folders such as for plasma, icons, window decorations…etc?
I am using a global theme called Wings, and I like it. I moved the taskbar to the top, and made it floating, so far so good. But it is a solid theme on taskbar and transparent on dolphin. I would like to make the background of the taskbar of the theme to transparent and if possible without blur. I would also like to play with the roundness of the corners of the taskbar and it may be even more complicated but I would like to put an outline to the taskbar. So for this, I have to modify the css files I suppose. Is there any guide on this which explains which lines I should change or add?
Date and time on taskbar are written on two lines with the time on top and date on the bottom. I would like to make them one single line, like in MacOS systems. I think that for that I should use custom format, again for these, is there any guide? Since I am not a coder, I don’t know those coding and formatting languages. I modified some stuff in the past with some common sense, but I still need some guide, somewhere to start to learn some of this things to be able to modift things further as I like.
Is there any way to hide the top bar (task bar) when the apps are maximized and make it visible only when I force my mouse to the top of the screen such as how they do on the docks? I am using the only icon taskbar.
Can I make the icons of the taskbar smaller?
Are there any alternative taskbar panels that I can download, try and experiment?
Is there any more “simple looking” terminal that I can use, such as the one on Gnome and add transparency to it?
On Kubuntu, on my Nvidia X Settings panel, I had the option to choose the performance mode. On Manjaro, I don’t see that setting, I only have the powermizer which forces the high frequency to my GPU. Since I had seen the powermizer on Kubuntu as well, I suppose that both do different stuff. Is there any way to add this option to Manjaro KDE Nvidia Settings?
