Same for actions in the context menu
Comment 2 Bug Janitor Service 2020-07-01 21:14:47 UTC
A possibly relevant merge request was started @ https://invent.kde.org/plasma/plasma-workspace/-/merge_requests/133
Comment 3 Nate Graham 2020-07-01 22:50:37 UTC
Technically this isn't one KCM that's opened, but rather three. YOu can see because the window's sidebar has three items in it. We can only open single KCMs in System Settings, not multiple KCMs. So to do this properly, we will need to collapse those three KCMs into one first. This is desperately needed anyway, as those KCMs are quite old-fashioned and have poor UX.

Merge request closed without merging, removing Assigned status.
Comment 5 Nate Graham 2020-11-13 03:47:08 UTC
This isn't doable until the three QWidgets-based power KCMs are collapsed into one new QML-based one. ...At which point doing what this bug report asks for is trivial. :)
Comment 6 Nate Graham 2021-04-23 17:03:21 UTC
Actually what was I thinking? Opening one KCM in system Settings is fine as long as the others are visible in the sidebar--as they are, same as in the current multi-KCM UI. I should have merged your MR. :( Will do so manually in a moment...

[applets/batterymonitor] Open Powerdevil KCMs in System Settings

This is generally what we do for other KCMs, and the UX is virtually
unchanged from the current multi-KCM dialog, with the exception of being
able to navigate elsewhere if you want.
