Long time Linux user but a KaOS newbie here! 👋
I just installed KaOS a few days after the jump to Plasma 6 happened, and have had pretty much no issues. There's one "non-trivial" issue however:
virtualbox-qt5 doesn't start, because it's missing
libQt5Help.so.5. It also appears to be the only one missing:
$ ldd ./usr/lib/virtualbox/VirtualBox | grep "not found"
libQt5Help.so.5 => not found
After a little detective work, trial and error, both
qt5-tools were installed, but that one .so is missing.
pacman -F does not return an owner to the file either. So perhaps it's a build config issue in PKGCONFIG or something similar?
I'm not familiar with building Qt5 itself, so I didn't start debugging that now (plus I'm on a potato for a few days, so recompiling big things myself is slow). Meanwhile I'll try to borrowing the missing file from another distribution, perhaps that works in a pinch.
So far KaOS + Plasma 6 has been an absolute joy! Using the computer feels very snappy and responsive, compared with Manjaro Plasma 5. All devices and features work just fine, so currently my plan is to keep using KaOS in (at least) this one laptop and slowly going through my use cases (spoilers: all of them are quite common for Linux power users) to see what works and what doesn't. I like the idea of having a one-arch-only and one-desktop-environment-only distro with a sharp focus and opinions (which I support, obviously) - the result really seems to be a bit different distro that actually stands out from the crowd in its favor. Thank you for all the hard work you've put into it so far!
