Upgraded from plasma 6.0.4 to 6.0.5 - system monitor widgets messed up?

Hi there,

I’ve just upgraded my Gentoo-based plasma installation from 6.0.4 to 6.0.5. I had a neat panel on the right side of the screen with a bunch of system monitor widgets (CPU, memory, disk, network, temps). On 6.0.5 they are now all squeezed together and I can’t seem to fix it. Only when I place the widgets directly on the desktop, they look normal.
Additionally, when I modify details of a line chart (e.g. change the color of a sensor), suddenly the line chart disappears and only the text-only sensor stays, with no way to bring it back but delete the widget and add it from scratch.

Is this a known regression?



Nobara update to 6.0.5, can confirm system monitor widget is not working. Config interface is messed up. I can’t no longer place widget on desktop, even place a new one won’t work.

I can confirm the same behavior (bug) on 6.1 beta too

Have the same problem. Downgrade plasma-systemmonitor to 6.0.4 do not solve that.

Same here. I’m running plasma-systemmonitor 6.0.5 on Fedora 40 and I’m using the Individual core usage widget on a default panel. Most display styles are useless: The Bar chart style is squished so thin that no bars are displayed, Process table and Applications table crash Plasma altogether (had to delete ~/.config/plasma-org.kde.plasma.desktop-appletsrc and restart from the command line).

I am also having issues, particularly with the CPU widget. It used to have a show each core nicely on my panel, now I need to click.

Same here :frowning:


(This is actually a screenshot from plasma5, because I do not have a screenshot of how it looked before the update from 6.0.4 to 6.0.5. But the look was almost identical to this one)
