I upgraded my laptop to Leap 42.1 the other day, using the good old method that I’ve been talking about a few times. Worked without major issues, I just had to manually fix the repository URL in a couple of the repositories I’m using.

Now I’m on 42.1 using Plasma 5, and so far I mostly like it. A few features and settings have gone from parts of the kdepim suite, and there is one weird glitch-error where starting kopete gets me a weird “file: ioslave has been terminated” error, that I’m sure is somehow related to kopete styles. Maybe when I’ll do my desktop I’ll do the upgrade to Leap first, and then the upgrade to the latest plasma5, and not the other way around like on this laptop.

On the whole I’m happy with what I have here.

One little thought just keeps nagging me:

How come that Plasma 5 with the breeze style looks a LOT like Windows 10? …, wait, Windows 10 came after Plasma 5, right?

Edit, 2016-09-14: Turns out I should have done the upgrade to Leap 42.1 first, and THEN the KF5 update. I had some repositories enabled that should not be mixed. Disabled the bad ones, zypper dup -l, all is well.

I hate it when a mandatory update takes away functionality. In this case: twitter tools for WordPress.

The latest update now uses the “Social” plugin which integrates your blog with not only Twitter but Facebook as well. But it also takes away the option to have specific hashtags in your tweets about new blog posts.
