recently I switched from GNOME to KDE using the Manjaro wiki page for installing desktop environments as a rough guide.
Afterwards I (hopefully) removed everything Gnome by using
sudo pacman -Rcn gnome.
So far, after a bit if setting things up and getting to know KDE I’ve got almost everything working. Only mounting MTP devices and some issues with SMB persist.
- Plasma successfully recognizes a new MTP device (as a notification leading to “disks & devices”), when clicking “open in file manager”, dolphin opens but errors with the following:
The file or folder udi=/org/kde/solid/udev/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:08.1/0000:04:00.4/usb3/3-2 does not exist.
I already installed a bunch of mtp related things, including kio-extras and kio-mtp to no avail. Maybe it some configuration that’s missing?
In general SMB is working fine and this seems to be more of a network discovery issue. When opening dolphin and going to Network → SMB, I can see my Printer (for some reason), and my Win10 PC. But not my Linux NAS with an SMB-Share. I can access it directly using
smb://<ip> but I’d like autodiscovery to work.
Bonus question regarding SMB: Is there any way to have dolphin ask for SMB credentials upon first connection to any share? Nautilus always did it and it was very helpful.
