I'm trying to build it but:

CMake Error in CMakeLists.txt: Imported target "KF5::NetworkManagerQt" includes non-existent path


in its INTERFACE_INCLUDE_DIRECTORIES. Possible reasons include:

  • The path was deleted, renamed, or moved to another location.

  • An install or uninstall procedure did not complete successfully.

  • The installation package was faulty and references files it does not provide.

-- Generating done CMake Generate step failed. Build files cannot be regenerated correctly.

switch back and forth between plasmashell and liquidshell by simply replacing the ....desktop file in the relevant autostart subdirectory - very handy !

To avoid the start of plasmashell, create a file

(or ~/.config/autostart/org.kde.plasmashell.desktop - depending on what's the name in
/etc/xdg/autostart/ as it seems this was changed recently)

with the following 2 lines as content:
