Re: plasma 5 desktop scripting file locations / examples?


I am a bit like in your situation.

I have not found accurate documentations.

plasma-org.kde.plasma.desktop-appletsrc default configuration is defined through layout-templates js (in my opensuse system...)
each time you remove the file, the js file will regenerate it.

But there is not enough configuration documentation.
eg about Mouse settings action (ActionPlugin....)

regarding each applet there seems to be a configure and remove option available, but I don't know how to set it up.....

Hi Patrick,

Not sure how to do it personally, but at the moment, there are fairly up-to-date KDE packages for Debian in testing, unstable and experimental. You could check out how they did it there. There is also a mailinglist [1] for KDE on Debian that you could ask your question on. The maintainers are very friendly and helpful!

Hope that helps,

I am Patrick, a maintainer of Whonix, which Whonix is a Linux derivative
with at least several thousand users, that by default is using Debian
with Debian KDE packages. Is it okay if I ask a few questions on how to
pre-configure KDE as a Linux distribution?

Are you aware of any example (Debian) packages that pre-configure
plasma 5? These could help me to figure out the correct file locations
and environment variables.

In KDE 4, essentially the following worked.


export KDEDIRS=/usr/share/whonix-gw-kde-desktop-conf/:$KDEDIRS

I figured out how to make a kde settings package work with KDE 5. Here
is an example. [3]


if [ -z "$XDG_CONFIG_DIRS" ]; then
export XDG_CONFIG_DIRS=/usr/share/kde-sounds-off/:$XDG_CONFIG_DIRS


But editing default plasmoids / plasma changes are a bit different? For
example, how could one enable kde systray by default?

The file that needs to be ultimately influenced is

I haven't found any documentation on kde.org on how to do that with
KDE5. Please advice.

Best regards,
