KDE Activities and Vivaldi



  • I'm using Fedora 25 and the newest release of KDE on my brand new Dell Latitude laptop. About a year ago I installed Vivaldi on my old desktop (last years releases of the above OS and Vivaldi) and decided to play with KDE's "Activities" function. For the un-initiated, it's like a parallel set of virtual desktops. I think the idea was to have one convenient set for work, one for home and one for whatever, each with it's own independently taylorable set of shortcuts, widgets and wallpapers.

    Today was the first time in a while I tried using the facility. Everything seems okay, except, unlike other apps, Vivaldi appears in each activity. The others appear only in the activity (and virtual desktop) in which they were started.

    I don't think that's new - I have a vague memory of the same thing happening a year ago. However, I'm pretty sure a found a control that kept Vivaldi from appearing in any activity except the one in which it was started. Now I can't find that control.

    I'm not sure that the control was in the Vivaldi settings, so I'm asking if any KDE user is familiar with it, or how to update this particular setting.

    Thanks in advance.



  • @jbuckley2004 It's the V Native Window setting. When i first installed V in early 2015 [Mint 17.3 KDE4, back then], i had the same puzzle as you. I discovered that by ticking this setting & restarting V, it then respects the Activities [that is, until the inevitable next Plasma hiccup, after which annoyingly all pgm windows now appear in all Activities, thus [technical term] buggering my carefully organised layout] :-)
