Just an example of bugs I have with KDE
Wayland:

on android studio I wasn't able to copy paste properly (wasn't happening on gnome but let's say it's an android studio issue)
I decide to go back to xorg
on wayland, my right screen is set to 125x because smaller
when switching to xorg, my right screen is at weird 1500xsomething resolution instead of 1920.
I try to switch it on settings, impossible, it's like the 125x parameter stays but on xorg it's a global parameter whether on wayland it depends on the screen
so I switch back to wayland and disable scaling, go back to xorg and screens are OK

but... every last kde process is now running at 100% cpu: kdeconnect, konsole, dolphin, etc (everything I was using at the first wayland session)
I have to kill them one by one because they were not killed when disconnecting the session. wwhyyYyyy

I'm starting to really like KDE, but it's still slower than gnome at startup, so I don't know if I will install that to on of my friends who has a very slow computer

Sometimes I think that the switch to wayland was a bad thing because it requires to maintain both a Xorg version and a Wayland with so many problems

Well to me KDE is still not stable enough for daily usage...

I just unplugged my external display

every time I read a thread about someone complaining about kde eating ram, somebody answers something like
"What would you do with 500 mB more of available ram ???"

even worst

"Why do you care? Is memory expensive?"

yes it is, and even if it wasn't, not a good reason

KDE seems to be a real ram eater, which surprises me because during my last tests KDE was better than gnome

Show thread

Advantages of KDE settings: there is a graphical option for everything

disadvantage:
I'm sorry but it's such a big mess:
whyy two times "kwin" in the shortcut manager ?
why can't I change my background in appearance ?
so many things like that I don't understand, it's ok, just new habits I need to get, but it always looks like they didn't think it from the beginning

Show thread

Also missing on KDE, the alt + ² that I really like on gnome, that allows to switch between instances of the same app, like alt tab but only on current app

Show thread

one thing I liked about manjaro and I guess fedora: when trying to use a command that is not installed, it immediately propose to install it

Show thread

Something fun about Kubuntu:

they don't use the snap version of firefox on 21.10 hihihi

KDE is always a little buggy
for example sometimes my mouse becomes some kind of dark square on wayland

What's your favorite operating system ever ?
Don't say "windows" or "archlinux", I also want the version of it, it doesn't have to be for technical reasons but just good memories

Has anybody ever tested Yuzu on Apple M1 ?
What are your feedbacks ?
