I am new to BackSlash and I find it refreshing, as I like very much its style and speed, big compliments to developers!
There are a few problems which, after fiddling with it for I while, I noticed which I would like to point out, hoping there is some way to correct them.
1. after making (today) a full dist-upgrade via apt, the wifi widget in the upper bar disappeared and now there is a red networking symbol: had to manually configure wifi, but lost the easy facility and the ability to store pa**word for known networks; what is the plasma plugin (or deb package) which is needed to have the wifi selector functionality back?
2. I couldn't find where in systemsettings I can allow dragging windows across virtual desktops (as instead present in other KDE distros)
3. I counìldn't find in systemsettings where to change the pixel tolerance for the mouse cursor when hovering windows borders in order to change shape and modify their geometry: right now, when you want to change window geometry you have to be exactly on the last border pixel, which makes adjusting windows, especially with a small touchpad, cumbersome; I would like the cursor to change shape some pixels around the border and not just at its very last pixel
4. I purged away openoffice (that software is going nowhere) and installed libreoffice: both xenial repos and libreoffice ppa repo successfully install it, but, when running, you cannot see any menu in the upper menu bar (while instead this works for any other program, for instance I am now using firefox and I read the usual "File, Edit, etc."); why in the world this happens with libreoffice? Is there some missing package to install? (for the moment I installed WPS office to have some working office software)
Just for the records, I use three virtual desktops and I like to have different wallpapers over them, so I solved this by installing the Vallpaper v1.1.3 plasma plugin ) I think you could include it in next releases!
Many thanks for your help and keep on with this amazing work!
