Description Sean Colsen 2024-03-02 15:51:42 UTC
Prior to upgrading to Plasma 6.0, I was able to initiate the desktop grid effect via moving my pointer to a screen corner. After the upgrade, I am able to initiate the desktop grid effect via a keyboard shortcut (and the desktop grid itself works fine). But I'm no longer able to configure my screen edge actions to trigger the desktop grid effect.

The options I have available for all eight screen edge/corner locations are as follows:

No action
Peek at Desktop
Lock Screen
Show KRunner
Activity Manager
Present Windows - All Desktops
Present Windows - Current Desktop
Present Windows - Current Application
Toggle window switching
Toggle alternative window switching

I would expect to see "Desktop Grid" within that list of options, but I don't.

I've tried selecting "Overview", thinking that perhaps it would show a grid, but it does not. It seems to function in a nearly identical manner to "Present Windows - Current Desktop".

These existing bugs seem like potential duplicates:


However, they show as already being fixed.

I am running on Plasma 6.0.0, KDE Neon 6.0, Qt Version 6.6.2, Kernel 6.5.0-21-generic, Wayland
