This thread will be used to discuss ongoing ISO builds for Plasma 6.
The April News article explained what to expect currently and how to use.
Today, a new Plasma 6 ISO has been uploaded, many of the instructions stay the same.
This ISO is not installable, only meant to test in Live mode. The installer Calamares is not ready for Qt 6/Plasma 6, nor are there many KDE Applications available in their Qt6 version.
As of July 23, the ISO can now be installed too,
Calamares kf5 based is used. As of Oct 1, Calamares is kf6 based. If you decide to install, edit pacman.conf and add the build repo above core, then add kde-next above build once rebooted into the new system.
This ISO is only linked in here, not available from the Download page.
Autologin is not enabled, since it varies greatly, depending on hardware whether X or Wayland is the better session. So, sddm will show you an empty username. Login name & password are live/live. Virtualbox currently does not work with a Wayland session, choose X11.
As of November 1 ISO, autlogin is enabled, there are no known issues to not use a Wayland session for all free graphics drivers.
