Settings as I use them here are retained - even the position of application windows. That is a logical thing to do really as there may have been several up when a user logs back in again. I only use a plain ordinary set up though, no activities for instance but as those are folders by another name there shouldn't be any problems really.

The difference is probably down to both disto installed and version. I'm using kde plasma 5.86, framework 5.26 and qt 5.6.1. There is still a lot of kde4 around and I'd guess as that goes things may take a while to re appear again.

I'm having other problems more related to hardware. They go and updates may bring them back but otherwise it's mostly pretty solid.

If you are having problems joining the kde org forum I had the same problem. I contacted the administrator and it turned out that I had miss typed my email address.

;-) I asked a question on there though as I thought that devs might read posts and no answer. 67 reads so far. Not asking for a change just info.

To correct another post I made - nothing to do with wayland. It seems kde is compiling dolphin so that it will not run as root. Sounds like it checks and refuses. It's built into some releases. Not sure if this is disto or kde.
