this is a general issue for Firefox and plasma global menus. It is not related to this applet. If you search the internet "plasma kde how to show global menu" you will find out what is going on. In Tumbleweed it does not work even for me but in ubuntu derivative distros it should work. - Feb 16 2019
you are missing some packages from your distro that must be installed in your system, you should request for help from your distro packagers or users - Feb 09 2019
no, there is no technology for global menus under wayland - Jan 16 2019
1. the plasma app menu applets works ok in your system?
2. I can not test the applet under plasma 5.12 so there is chance that it needs specific version for plasma 5.12 - Nov 24 2018
yes! :) - Nov 16 2018
a user reported that he is using that setup and I wanted to demonstrate the flexibility of having three different applets to do the job... Window Title, Window Buttons and Window AppMenu - Nov 16 2018
you should ask experienced users of your distro how to do it... It uses the same libraries with previous Active Window Control. - Nov 16 2018

fixed with 0.8.6 - Feb 15 2019
For 1 you should use in order to be discussed with the community, for 2 you can already do it. You can add in Latte dock any plasma widget you want including "Show Desktop", just drag n' drop it from widgets explorer onto the dock - Feb 15 2019 - Feb 14 2019

Are you using plasma 5.15 ? - Feb 12 2019

v0.8.x is a lot better than v0.7.x family

I suppose that v0.7.x is by default officially distributed from ubuntu.

You can ask the kubuntu devs or kubuntu community how to be always up to date with plasma and Latte.
Latte current stable branch is v0.8.x that was first introduced at Summer 2018.
Latte v0.7.x was introduced back at Summer 2017

- Jan 03 2019
> In which version it was redesigned? I'm using the one in Ubuntu 18.04 repo (0.7.4)

this is a very old version. You must ask your distro packagers or users how to obtain a new one. Latte stable version is v0.8.3 and v0.8 branch has improved so many things compared to v0.7 ... I think @rikmills provides updated packages for Latte dock in Ubuntu but you must use the backport plasma repo... Your distro community members is the best place to ask for this.

you can read more at:

> That means each of them needs work.

of course but that also means that each and every one of the members of the open source community, users/bug reporters/developers should help is such tasks. Latte is actually developed by one man for the last two years, and that would be me. Better experience needs more people to help... ;) - Dec 28 2018
> I can't managed to add my preferred applications and remove the watch that I don't need.

To add applications drag n' drop them an application launcher or from krunner OR right click the window in the taskmanager and choose Pin

Feel free to contribute then, source code can be found at:

> You have to re-open configuration of the dock every time you want to do it.

no you dont, it was designed in a way that this is not needed. Drag n' drop any plasmoid you want from the widgets explorer onto the dock.

> Another pain in the neck is that it does not respect already inserted panels and icon grid

Of course it does if these panels are also Latte panels. That is why in a Unity layout the left latte panel and the top latte panel are adjusting their position automatically by their own. Concerning plasma to identify external panels and docks you can blame plasma for this for not providing a way for external programs to publish their panels/docks geometries (

And as a note what you are requesting does not exist in no other DE or dock combination. Plank/Latte/Cairo Dock etc. etc... can not take into account the desktop content independent if that is Plasma,Gnome, XFCE etc. etc.

That separator is important part of Latte and that is why it is distributed with it.
You can remove the separator you have installed and afterwards install Latte, it will work just fine...

yep, that is... the way to do this is the same as in plasma panels in order for the plasma users to not change their workflow. - May 16 2018

The theme has a small bug.
It misses a "shadow-center" element. Without this element plasma framework does not indicate that there is a full shadow element in the svgs.

1. This is the reason you do not see the shadow in plasma system settings.
2. This is the reason Latte Dock can not draw this theme shadow properly for its docks. For its panels there is no problem because kwin uses a different way to draw them. - Sep 01 2018

Thank you so much!!! Latte Dock will now support properly different panel backgrounds found in plasma themes based on the edge the docks or panels are present!!! - Aug 27 2018
I am sorry but how did you manage to have a whitish top panel and a darkish left panel? Is that supported from the Nilium plasma theme? - Aug 27 2018

it is a second latte panel... just import the latte layout file in Latte... It should provide you with that exact layout... If you have already tried and you still cant get transparency in Latte docks or panels make sure that compositing is activated... - May 29 2018
