Description Derek Christ 2021-09-17 10:27:28 UTC
Since Bug 402903 is now resolved, we finally have launch feedback when opening an application on Wayland.
However, the launch feedback does not work when an app is launched using the kickoff launcher.
Launching from the desktop or from any other application (KRunner) works fine. 

1. Open Kickoff launcher
2. Launch an application
3. No launch feedback

No launch feedback

This does not only affect Kickoff launcher, but also every other menu I tested.

Can confirm on Arch Linux running Plasma 5.23 beta and on neon unstable.
Comment 2 nbgyan 2021-09-20 21:52:14 UTC
I only recently decided to switch to Wayland for a test drive and I can confirm this is true.
Comment 3 Nate Graham 2021-09-21 22:10:34 UTC
Can confirm.
Comment 4 Till Schäfer 2021-10-14 13:31:40 UTC
The same is true for applications launched via shortcuts or krunner.
Comment 5 Nate Graham 2021-10-14 14:38:32 UTC
Yeah, those are separate issues which will need to be fixed separately.

> Yeah, those are separate issues which will need to be fixed separately.

should I open separate bug reports for them or should we track them all here?
Comment 7 Nate Graham 2021-10-14 15:07:45 UTC
Separate bug reports please, and then we can relate them with the "See also" field so they don't get lost. Looks like we already have a bug report about apps launched via global shortcuts though: Bug 417087. So we just need one for KRunner.
Comment 8 Till Schäfer 2021-10-14 16:00:42 UTC
Bug 443726 -> KRunner
Comment 9 Patrick Silva 2022-05-12 10:30:57 UTC
On my neon unstable, launch feedback is working with apps started via kickoff or krunner. \o/

Me too, can confirm that! I bet dollars to donuts that it was fixed by https://invent.kde.org/plasma/kwin/-/merge_requests/2302.

:D how many dollars? 💵 💵 💵
Comment 12 Nate Graham 2022-05-13 15:00:46 UTC
Enough to buy donuts, clearly!
