It's just too buggy and monolithic. Nothing really huge, but filled with tonnes of small annoying bugs (settings crashing, widgets resetting their position on panels every boot, screen tearing even with all the performance-hungry compositor settings turned on). It's difficult to customize compared to every other DE, and the fact that it's qt makes it a minority when it comes to people supporting it with themes and stuff.

It's also so fugly outside of the box and takes a good hour to customize (and that's if you know what you are doing). I think it's the most feature rich DE by far, but it lacks polish. Dolphin is the best graphical file manager ever created though and it's almost worth using it over everything for me just because of that

I do use it, KDE is a great DE in every way except an occasional lack of polish and the terrible, terrible UI, which also makes it look uglier than it should be. There are a lot of niggling little things that bother me. Practically every other DE gets this right except for KDE, it makes KDE feel amateurish. From what I understand they're pretty open to accepting contributions on this front, though, so maybe I'll do something with that one of these days. Then again, people have been asking for a smaller clock for years, and yet...

yes? that is what I am saying.
My original point was that KDEFags blame everything but their segfault simulator
for their issues and it was pointed out that the blob driver is (surprise) proprietary garbage and is the cause of the corruption in the UI.
last I checked nouveau doesn't have 3d accel on the >1000 series and the 900 series is gimped due to low clock speeds.
The whole nvidia issue on Linux is why I bought a Vega56 instead, amdgpu just works.

The screen can be unlocked by switching to a new tty (ctrl-alt-F2) and executing

loginctl list-sessions
loginctl unlock-session [session #]
This fixed it on sabayon kde;
Check the output of stat -c '%n %a %U %G' /sbin/unix_chkpwd
If it's not 4755, try changing it: sudo chmod 4755 /sbin/unix_chkpwd

I'm not talking so much about the appearance of KDE as I am the UI itself. Most other DEs have a pretty well made UI, but just happen to have an ugly theme/icons, so you can end up with a very nice looking DE with some basic theming. With KDE, on the other hand, there's _very_ little consistency, cohesiveness, or alignment within any given menu or window. Menu elements strongly lack any distinctiveness from one another, they're often just slapped across a massive flat backdrop--this is exacerbated with the Breeze Dark theme. Just look at the image I posted contrasting the XFCE display menu with the KDE display menu--it's a clusterfuck. Theming won't really help much with this sort of problem.

KDE feels amatuerish?? Have you seen GNOME? From CSD to shoving touch UI down everyone's throats, it's like it was designed by a three year old obsessed with making his desktop more like his iPad.

Nothing.

He deleted most of his social media because it was a distraction. He felt he spent more time getting worked up over it than doing actual work.
A few weeks later he decided to pack his things and make a long-distance move. It's taking him a while to settle in and get everything back in order. Because the most vocal person on the Solus team isn't currently around, people are freaking-the-fuck-out and jumping to baseless conclusions.
The team has continued to make progress with the project, but because they aren't as vocal about the steps taken, people assume doom-and-gloom.

GTK and Qt programs run on the other platform just fine. They're graphical toolkits. Window decorations are handled by the window manager.

The only issue is theming. You need some king of translation layer to have your GTK theme apply to Qt apps and vice versa. Luckily, most modern distros ship that by default.

KDE4 was buggy. I've been stuck on GNOME 3, and it's been getting buggier with every release. Tried the latest Kubuntu with KDE5 just for shits and giggles, and so far, it's been faster, more lightweight, more stable.

I just converted my main workstation to Kubuntu. RIP in hell, GNOME Shell.

Well, I'll be. That screenshot I took was from a few weeks ago. I just updated to 5.14 and the display module looks much nicer. Maybe a KDE dev heard me complain. Nonetheless, I still think the XFCE one looks a bit better, and that screenshot I took was just one example--in general, I still feel like KDE's UI is a bit of a mess and lacks consistency between menus, visual distinctiveness, and proper alignment. I'll give them credit, though, it gets better with every update.

>>68021403
>KDE feels amatuerish?? Have you seen GNOME? From CSD to shoving touch UI down everyone's throats, it's like it was designed by a three year old obsessed with making his desktop more like his iPad.

Criticism of KDE != approval of GNOME.

That being said, while I dislike much of GNOME and its design direction, I do think it has a more consistent and clean UI than KDE.
>>
I have to say I'm surprised with how good KDE is these days. I remember back in 2016 having all sorts of grievances with it and complaining about how slow and buggy it was. Nowadays it's the most usable thing I can find really. So I don't really understand why people have been giving it shit as of late, I can only explain it with people just getting burned out years ago by its poor performance.

>You need some king of translation layer to have your GTK theme apply to Qt apps and vice versa. Luckily, most modern distros ship that by default.

Most distros ship the GTK2 style for Qt (Qt can't use GTK3 styles yet), but it's impossible to have GTK3 use Qt styles, GTK3 removed style engines. The only way to style GTK3 is with CSS.

I guess you could write a program that converts Qt widgets into bitmaps and use CSS to apply the bitmaps but it'd run like shit.

The only way to have a unified theme in Qt and GTK3 these days is to have either a style with both Qt5 and GTK3 versions, or GTK2 and GTK3 versions.

Why would it run shit? If you'd do it with every new graphical object on screen, that i understand, but why would you want to do that in the first place. You just need to pre-compile standard ui objects and map them accordingly. It's just super dumb, which is why nobody ever did it.
