    Updated my Neon to 5.18, which was released today, and had my widgets previously locked (in 5.17.5). After upgrading, widgets were still locked without an obvious way to unlock (so I couldn't get into the normal or edit mode).
    So this came in handy, using "false" instead of "true" to unlock. Just a head's up if someone else runs into the same when upgrading to 5.18.

    Fixed in Kubuntu. Just waiting to see if Neon main devs want to patch, or wait for 5.18.1
    On #kubuntu-devel & #kubuntu on irc.freenode.net - IRC Nick: RikMills - Launchpad ID: click

    Long-click on the desktop - or right-click and Customize Layout - really seems to unlock the widgets on 5.18 here (neon Testing, had a full .18 for a few days now).

    [EDIT] What I see is, if I do that (all windows close, just the top configure/add widgets remains), hovering over the (analog) clock allows me to move, resize, etc. whereas in locked mode it doesn't, it shows the calendar.

    This does not work in Neon if you had your widgets locked on 5.17 before upgrading to 5.18 (or the beta), "customize layout" is disabled and long-click does nothing..see the bug. Once you've unlocked (with the dbus query), things work as they should (and as you described).

    You can see what I mean if you run:
    Code:
    qdbus org.kde.plasmashell /PlasmaShell evaluateScript "lockCorona(true)"
    to undo, just run
    Code:
    qdbus org.kde.plasmashell /PlasmaShell evaluateScript "lockCorona(false)"
    These set/unset the "true" locked mode, where editing is not possible via the GUI

    EDIT: I think the bug is fixed in Neon as well, with the latest updates
    EDIT2: it is, plasma-desktop-data...build73

    Well, that would explain it, I think the last time I locked the widgets was in 1917 or thereabouts
