I am also enthusiastic and generally positive about the new plasma rework, though a bit disappointed about the fact, that none of the launchers are in any way resizeable. Up to this point, Tiled-Menu worked well … but stopped working under newer plasma updates …
For I have really a lot of favorites to be displayed, only tiled-menu was doing the job in my case …
so for others like me here a possible solution:
I altered the kickoff menu for this purpose …
editing the /usr/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.plasma.kickoff/contents/ui/FullRepresentaion.qml
altering the lines:
Layout.minimumWidth: Math.round(PlasmaCore.Units.gridUnit * 20 * 5)
Layout.minimumHeight: PlasmaCore.Units.gridUnit * 50 Layout.maximumHeight: Layout.minimumHeight
( restart the computer for the settings to take effect )
with that I can live now better, as soon as I fill up all favorites and rearrange them icons.
I hope eventually, some of you may find this also helpful.
P.S. eventually some updates later the settings have been reverted to standard values again,
could have re-edited the settings-file, but meanwhile, I got Tiled-Menu working again, so closing this article now…was fun trying out though…
