Congrats! Any Release notes / Known issues? :slight_smile:

The KDE edition is working great on my new laptop, with 2 minor issues, one of which I solved.

  1. I was having occasional flickering of window titlebars. I switched from xf86-video-intel to modesetting, and the flickering has stopped.
  2. The pamac systray icon is dark when there are no updates. This makes it barely visible on the dark panel.

what did you use to get the readout of specs that way?

inxi -Fxxxza  --no-host

Edited to @cscs’s suggestion.

@ben81 @GraveDigger1

inxi -Fxxxza --no-host

is preferable

@philm - we can use the icons from the breath2, so this can be avoided in the future.

Edit: with that minimal modification i just did, this issue should be fixed if the theme is updated.

Lenovo T510... XFCE works fine.

Except nvidia is not working but this is known issue with legacy 340.xx cards
and bumblebee (it just wont work)... so I use only integrated intel card on this
Optimus laptop.

What exactly is needed to achieve that? I just build an RC without a fix ...

Hmm, maybe this ...
