KDE Tips and Tricks

Here are some tips and tricks I found useful for using

Install KDE


    yum install @kde-desktop


    dnf install @kde-desktop


    sudo apt install kubuntu-desktop

Turn on NUMLOCK by default when loading into KDE

    System Settings > Input Devices > Keyboard > Hardware > NumLock on KDE Startup

Enable CTL+ALT+BACKSPACE to kill Xorg

    System Settings > Hardware > Input Devices > Keyboard > Advanced > Key sequence to kill the X server

Restart kwin

    killall plasmashell #to stop it
    kstart plasmashell #to restart it
  • Fix cache issues (fubar icons, fonts, etc)
    rm -rf ~/.cache/*
