Current status of Fedora Kinoite (official & unofficial builds)

Fedora Kinoite will probably be available on the Fedora Spins page alongside the Fedora KDE Spin first.

@Siosm

I’ve been trying to use some of the themes for KDE from the “Global Theme” and the window decorations do not seem to work properly. When I apply a theme that isn’t Breeze none of the buttons or title/menu show up.

I tried Plastik (default) and installed some dark themes from discover but none of them work.

Any suggestions?

Hey @richardgiesige

I’ve tried installing some themes and changing window decoration and that worked for me so I would need more details to be able to figure out the issue. Feel free to open a ticket in the KDE SIG tracker with as much details as possible: Issues - fedora-kde/SIG - Pagure.io

Some themes are failing to install probably because they try to write to /usr

Is it possible to create a symbolic link to /var?

When I try to login to report my issue to fedora-kde/SIG it gives me a error “Strange State”.

Here is what my Kinoite build looks like when I applied the Plastik Window Decoration.

Link to my picture since I can’t upload.

What do you want to link exactly? What’s not working? I don’t understand.

This looks a lot like a hardware / driver / rendering issue. Could you try to reproduce it in a Fedora KDE Spin LiveCD? This should then probably be reported in the Fedora BugZilla.

Thanks for the suggestion about testing on the Spin LiveCD. I also have the same problem there. I’ll open a Fedora BugZilla ticket. I’m running a Dell XPS 13 from late 2016 or so.

I have a UHD screen 16:9 on this computer with and it looks like the problem happens when I go to 200% on the Display settings.

I seen that there is a fedora:fedora/rawhide/x86_64/kinoite branch in a official fedora repository, and tried to rebase into it, and it worked well. So, we have an official build available :slight_smile:

I also rebased to official Kinoite build on device used in work and found the following issues:

  • I had to layer plasma-nm-vpnc to be able to connect to my corporate vpn. I think packages necesary for connecting to most types of vpn should be in compose, Fedora Silverblue have it
  • Firefox included in the build not applying dark theme when it is set in plasma settings

edit: Intresting thing is that dark theme in firefox is applied well while running firefox from flatpak in Fedora flatpak repository

Does fedora kinoite already have a logo?
