Description Patrick Silva 2022-02-05 10:23:25 UTC
1. run a crhomium-based browser natively on Wayland (I tested ungoogled chromum from flathub and Opera.
I'm unable to reproduce this bug - nothing happens after these steps - with Firefox.) and navigate to any website
2. Drag the URL from the URL bar to the desktop

Plasma creates a Stick Note on deskop

Plasma creates a .desktop file launcher for the URL

Operating System: KDE neon Unstable Edition
KDE Plasma Version: 5.24.80

to run a chromium-based browser natively on Wayland, load chrome://flags/,
search for 'wayland', set 'Preferred Ozone platform' flag to 'Auto' and restart the browser.

On neon unstable, a stick note is also created when I drag a .jpg file and drop it on desktop.

Proooooooooooobably a Chromium bug.
Comment 3 Clay Weber 2023-06-14 22:20:20 UTC
I see this in Firefox with URLs I get a Sticky Note. Chrome doesn't do anything.

Both Kde Neon and Fedora 38, Plasma 5.27.5

Wonder if that is fixed by https://code.qt.io/cgit/qt/qtwayland.git/commit/?id=80a3359598553298b544feae0a7e7399d6cfd9a7

Hm, nope, still happens even with that, it gets a moz-url from Chromium but then doesn't actually trigger the conversion code I added, interesting...

Nice, thanks!
