Typical story from bug report:

Me: "[...]But it's the way it is and that's by design. The feature work exactly as it's supposed to work. I'm sorry, this won't be changed."

User: "With decisions like that, no wonder KDE is still a broken mess.

I wonder why the hell I even bother reporting issues. Bugs are by design these days.

Never again.

Have a nice life."

And here we have why I dislike working with users.

And now I also have edge swipe on the touch screen support our screen edge actions.

I just triggered Desktop Grid with a four finger swipe up touchpad gesture.

Sneak preview of something I hacked together in 15 min today. Layout is not perfect, but it is fully functional.

Plasma/Wayland running on a RaspberryPi2. No adjustments needed, everything from Debian testing packages.

Unfortunately the screenshot tool in KWin does not work as the hardware does not expose FBO blit.

Slowly getting all features of X11 present in the Wayland session. This screenshot shows the lockscreen with a keyboard layout indicator and the menu to change the layout is fully functional.

Now the only remaining piece here is getting the capslock warning to work.

No Qt 5.8 for me :-( Unfortunately our Wayland integration broke and I don't want to go back to X11, so no Qt 5.8.
