    He says:

    I didn't know but also I don't know if new global editing mode is accessible to applets, the applet main purpose was to help Latte send screen geometries to Plasma, in Plasma 5.18 this is provided by a new Plasma mechanism. So there is big chance that the applet will become obsolete if there is no easy way for applets to access new global editing mode.

    Which I don't quite understand.

    This should sum up the changes (with relevant links to phabricator):

    We "non-developers" will just have to keep calm and carry on

    Thanks K. That Nate's blog is definitely a gold mine for KDE info.

    As to The Greek. Talk about being on top of things. :·)
    He says:
    Ok, you should try v0.2.0 that requires Plasma>=5.18. When you exit Configure Layout mode of Plasma 5.18 the applet should become hidden. I have not tested it but I believe it should work.

    I tried. Edit panel, Add widget, local file... no button.
    And I'm not sure what "Configure Layout mode" is exactly.
    And :·) we (on 5.17.90) don't quite have 5.18 yet, so... I'm lost.

    Maybe chimak - who has the button - can have a better idea.

    Nope, not a clue! All I know is that the button works as advertised for now. I've given up on trying to hide it for now.

    But you haven't tried v0.2.0 though, have you?

    Okay, I went back to get new widgets and there was an Update button. I clicked it. But I don't know whether I've now got v0.2 or not and how to check that. And even if I do, whether the button sees 5.17.90 as >=5.18!




    Edit: /home/dkb/.local/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.paneltransparencybutton/metadata.desktop still has

    Right-click on the Desktop
    Choose Configure Desktop
    Choose Mouse Actions
    Click on the "Settings" icon to the right of Standard Menu

    A new window, "Configure Contextual Menu Plugin", opens

    Lock Widgets is there!

    By the way, I tried to set up a new action using Ctrl+LeftButton. Although I could set it up, nothing happens when I click Ctrl+LeftButton on the desktop.
