Description tuxutku 2020-02-03 06:26:46 UTC
Launching chrome will not have indicator

1. Set "Global Shortcuts > Application Launchers > Launch Google Chrome > Launch Google Chrome" to "Meta+W" (or any combination)
2. Do the key combination
3. Chrome will launch but without that jumping icon indicator


Chrome will launch but without that jumping icon indicator


Maybe for the first time it to show a jumping icon indicator, so user can understand that its launching. I am not sure about the second or so on times because they are pretty quick.

Comment 1 Nate Graham 2020-02-05 20:16:02 UTC
This was fixed in a later Plasma version.
Comment 2 Patrick Silva 2020-02-09 17:20:29 UTC
Still not working on Plasma 5.18 beta.
Tested chromium, dolphin and konsole.
Comment 3 Nate Graham 2020-02-14 05:02:03 UTC
You're right, I was testing wrong, sorry. Can confirm now.
Comment 4 David Edmundson 2020-02-14 07:14:59 UTC
From kglobalaccel:
//we can't use KRun there as it depends from KIO and would create a circular dep

nicofee is planning on resolving the kbookmarks being used from kio which would then resolve that and this becomes a simple fix.
Comment 5 Kai Uwe Broulik 2020-02-14 07:52:56 UTC
I looked into it once and it appeared it would still create a launch feedback but it would use the binary name "dolphin" which doens't match "org.kde.dolphin". I'm pretty sure this worked at some point.

On Wayland this was fixed by https://invent.kde.org/frameworks/kglobalaccel/-/commit/ce28705bc9e6e0192108382a1c6bfb4ff59fddd7
