This week in KDE: Wayland by default, de-framed Breeze, HDR games, rectangle screen recording

Yep you read that right, we’ve decided to throw the lever and go Wayland by default! The three remaining showstoppers are in the process of being fixed and we expect them to be done soon–certainly before the final release of Plasma 6. So we wanted to make the change early to gather as much feedback as possible.

This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at

+1 but not so sure about the unification of the double click speed settings for mouse and touchpad though.

Nothing has been unified; the setting was always global in scope.


thanks @ngraham for clearing up.

Arg, language problem on my behalf. I understood the double click setting for touchpad and mouse is not on the input devices page. Sorry for that.

keep up the good work.

There is also no “Input devices” page. :slight_smile: There’s one page for mice and one page for touchpads. If we did have a unified “Mouse & Touchpad” page, it would solve a lot of problems because we could use that page for all the “clicking stuff” settings that apply to both of them. But combining them is quite a lot of work.


ah, ok. My touchpad is just detected and working as ps/2 mouse on FreeBSD (telling me there’s no touchpad) maybe that’s why I am wrong.

Are you using the Libinput drivers for your touchpad?

Having separate settings is actually much more practical because a touchpad is limited in terms of options and has too much sensitivity compared to how a moving external mouse is designed to work.

Combining the pages doesn’t meed combining the settings; you would still be able to configure your touchpads and mice independently. But having a combined page would offer a place on that page to put settings that affect both device types.



Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "libinput touchpad catchall"
        MatchIsTouchpad "on"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Driver "libinput"

Weird. I would recommend submitting a bug report on Libinput at Issues · libinput / libinput · GitLab

as follow up. This is the result of “libinput list-devices | grep Device” on FreeBSD 13.2:

Device: System mouse
Device: System keyboard multiplexer
Device: ACPI video extension
Device: Control Method Lid Switch
Device: Power Button
Device: Sleep Button
Device: AT keyboard
Device: GlidePoint

for reference, same machine on Arch Linux:
Device: Power Button
Device: Video Bus
Device: Video Bus
Device: Power Button
Device: Lid Switch
Device: Sleep Button
Device: Dell WMI hotkeys
Device: AT Translated Set 2 keyboard
Device: AlpsPS/2 ALPS DualPoint Stick
Device: AlpsPS/2 ALPS DualPoint TouchPad

Yeah, that’s probl. a good idea. But on the bright side for me it’s just cosmetics. Both the touchpad and the trackpoint is just displayed as “mouse” but works without quirks ootb (as the rest of the devices listed above :slight_smile:
btw, Thanks and keep up the good work to the rest of the kde team :slight_smile:

Glad you are making progress. Hope that x11 it’s still available in order to handle color management. Really need it for photo editing workflows.


Color management on Wayland is coming in Plasma 6!
