KDED causing long delay on shutdown?
by Patrick O'Callaghan
This has been happening for IIRC) several months now at least:
$ journalctl --boot=-1 --reverse

Any idea why? I see some apparently related BZ entries dating back a
couple of years, but nothing recently.

What is this icon/widget?
by John Horne
Unfortunately it seems that picture attachments are not accepted, but the text
of my message was:
I use KDE/plasma/wayland, and have recently upgraded my laptop from Fedora 35
to Fedora 36. What I have noticed is an odd icon/widget has appeared on the
desktop - see attached screen snapshot, the icon/widget is between the 'U' and
'X' characters and appears as a thin white line.
I have no idea what it is, or how to remove it. I can move the icon/widget
around the desktop, but a left or right mouse click, or pressing the return or
escape key, does nothing. At the moment I have moved it as far as possible into
one of the desktop corners, so that it does interfere with anything else on the
Anyone any idea what it is?
Obviously a picture would help, but as said it is basically a thin white line,
a couple of inches long, with a short grey bit in the middle. If anything it
looks a slider of some sort but it doesn't 'slide'.

So, RC3 had quite a lot of change in it. RC4 and RC5 are much more
limited. So we can count most tests from RC3 or later as being valid
for RC5; tests of Firefox, Nautilus and GNOME Photos should be re-
I have transferred results from RC3 and RC4 to RC5 in the matrix where
appropriate, leaving out things that are considered 'sanity tests'
(basic boot and install tests) which we try to run on every compose to
rule out some kind of cosmic bit-flip unexpectedly breaking an image.
So any spaces left on Basic/Beta/Final tests are ones we should try to
Special note on the Active Directory tests: it looks like tflink and
sgallagh ran these on RC1, thanks a lot. Since we did get a new sssd
between then and RC5 it would be *nice* if we could run them again, but
if not we can probably run with the RC1 results in the end.
Thanks again everyone!
