I saw the earlier post, but it mentioned "right now", so is that to say Neon stable isn't an option currently or some other thing, where if I wait I can later get regular Neon and the audio patched stuff?

Otherwise, why not make the file indexer an *option* in KXStudio, just off by default?

Really? When did that start? I haven't updated to the new base yet but can't imagine that would change much in this respect.
edit: oh wait, I misread your post. You can't enable it?! Just as well really.

lets see if I can clear this...

Neon does not provide an image which uses its LTS repos, so for regular users it is just not an available option.
Anyone that installs Neon the usual way (via ISO), will be on the "latest" non-LTS repos.

The packages I build and patch things for are the LTS ones.
Because the "latest" are more up to date compared to LTS packages, things I patch for KDE in that PPA won't be an option for regular Neon users.

I won't support the non-LTS packages patching at anytime ever.
Even keeping up with the LTS stuff is already quite the work.
Hopefully nothing major breaks between updates...

I had issues with this before, where it would still be used in some way even if disabled.
I feel better not having it, really dislike services doing random stuff "behind my back" (I mean, without being directly triggered by the user).
When it comes a time where you need your PC in "performance mode", then you have to go and manually disable a bunch of things to make sure they dont get in the way... (then enabling it all back again after you are done). err, too much of a pain.
We can live without the file indexer and automatic update checker.

Does plain quick file and directory search by name work in Dolphin without the file indexer?

Aside from that, I get your point. KXStudio is thus one ISO option to actually have KDE LTS (which seems like a good thing for sure).

Awww, I just installed and then updated only to be presented with no workable desktop, systemsettings removed or inoperable and kde-module-qml-plasma-kicker. (or something similar) reported as missing when I tried to open the start menu.

Everything started fine as normal when I first installed and it all looked good though, I just can't update if I want to use it.

I'm guessing that this is reported above - the lack of file indexer kf5-baloo is causing the package kde-plasma-desktop to be uninstallable (or something like that - I'm back on Osx now).

Installed without updating, the only thing that I have noticed is that a force-restart in cadence starts the alsa plugin by default and the resource usage increases from 0.8 per cent to over 6 per cent. Also, on my Mac, there seems to be quite a lot of jitter. Perhaps that is the file-indexer.

There is a config file for balloo. Perhaps you could either leave it as installed and switch off the indexing or have a script that will switch off unnecessary services including baloo when doing sensitive audio work. I often create this to cut down on jitter for live recording, with a desktop launcher on the desktop to start audio work (close down unnecessary programs) and stop audio work (to turn them back on again).

Hey falktx,

Would you be able to provide us with a list of GitHub issue tracker addresses indicating where to report information, perhaps pinned at the top of the forum where we can find it please?

Cheers!

someone might want to report the issue via https://github.com/KXStudio/Website (found after a quick google (kxstudio github website))

falktx has recently stated on IRC that they are currently actively avoiding logging in to the LinuxMusicians forum.

It does not work here as well. I guess the link is not active anymore.
It probably has nothing to do with the fact, that you are using a rival operating system Gennargiu :roll:

PS: I am curious to see the state of the new version of KXStudio. At this point i am looking for a stable operating system. It is my first and main requirement for any Linux based OS, surpassing even the performance, application availability, and up-to date versions. Plasma is currently in a pretty good state, but above all i want everything to behave as expected.

I had that impression already some days ago. So, what's the solution?

here is my proposal. i'm more of a crappy sysadmin than developer, so i'm afraid i can't implement it, so no expectations from me, just pointing out what i think is the gap in the thinking so far and vague hopes.
