Solus does not support Wayland officially, any working Wayland session is a coincidence at the moment

Sorry for bumping this old thread - should I open a new one, please let me know.

Ok, thanks, so i will wait until this problem is fixed.

need to look into this more, but not much info around (what I can find) and ibus-qt is not supported since nearly 5 years
Need to have a closer look, specially that showing up after a couple of min

Of course yes, i actually use ibus-unikey package from official Solus repo. This problem make me a bit annoying and inconvenient because i can't use some KDE/qt app which require typing like Kate, Kwrite, Dolphin, Desktop Sticky Note... What can i do?
Can you check with ibus-unikey

User confirmed resolved (https://dev.getsol.us/T6361#154582)
Apologies. I forgot this task was out here. This was no longer a problem when I tested out the current ISO recently.
Is this still an issue?
Jul 2 2019
LGTM, thanks for all that work!
Jun 23 2019
Did you report this upstream as well, looks a bit more an issue for them
Confirming the fix with 5.1.12
Jun 22 2019

Installed Plasma on a new machine and restore session doesn't restore most apps and in particular no KDE apps, it does restore things like Firefox and Viber but not Dolphin or Okular for example, it also doesn't restore things like TexStudio though which is also QT... This doesn't seem to be a general KDE issue either, just a Solus one.
Add KDE metadata

Yes same here with DualShock 4. Have to completly remove them and pair them again. Really annoying.

And our point is that Linux doesn't need a firewall if there aren't any open incoming ports on a base install.
Same behaviour with the Dual Shock 4 after updating to 5.1.7 and rebooting.

And our point is that Linux doesn't need a firewall if there aren't any open incoming ports on a base install. Linux rejects incoming requests unless something is actively listening on an incoming port. That's been the case for as long as I can remember.
And if you don't trust the source (a repo provided by us, over HTTPS) with providing you package updates and the packages themselves, including the firewall, and to install your firewall, [...]
@JoshStrobl Erm... Where did I say anything along these lines? My point is that any general-purpose OS should have a firewall preinstalled. @DataDrake mentioned some static system policy that's supposed to make up for that, but my question about it was ignored.
Don't forget the ISO they used to install in the first place.
Again, in order to install a firewall I would have to go online — it's a chicken-and-egg situation.

I think you are misreading my tone. I am being terse, not belligerent or hostile. I mean that we need a firewall that is easy for a novice user to use and requires no knowledge of TCP/UDP/IP to be usable.
@DataDrake I see. You probably know that already, but there is a graphical front end for firewalld called firewall-config; setting it up is just a matter of selecting one of the predefined firewall zones. It is also possible to select a different zone for every network connection directly via NetworkManager.
Definitive edit (hopefully)

I am an old computer user who never used a computer without a firewall. I am very happy that my Espon L365 printer/scanner works ok in a WiFi mode, but not without firewall being turned off. I don't accept that in 2019 my firewall is not smart enough to understand that my Espon L365 printer/scanner is a friend and not an enemy :(

@Hasshu I think you are misreading my tone. I am being terse, not belligerent or hostile. I mean that we need a firewall that is easy for a novice user to use and requires no knowledge of TCP/UDP/IP to be usable. OpenSnitch has been on my radar as a candidate for awhile, but still doesn't have a stable release.
I concur with the opinion that firewalld isn't horrible. On the contrary, its CLI is well organized and the concept of firewall zones is handy.
If you want configuration tools, there are multiple options in the repo that you can grab post-install.
@Gnat008 And that's the problem: I should be able to secure my PC before going online.

This isn't Windows. Linux has a much better security model out of the gate, which is why most mainstream Linux distributions ship without a firewall application enabled by default. Even on Ubuntu you have to enable the firewall on a fresh install if you want to use it. The ones that do, ship with firewalld which has a horrible end-user experience. Find me a firewall or firewall manager that is actively developed, has a stable release, and prompts users with a graphical dialog when services want to communicate, and then we'll talk.
It appears to me that iptables is already installed by default since I have it and did not explicitly install it. If you want configuration tools, there are multiple options in the repo that you can grab post-install.
