Hi,
I'm new to KDE and I have recently tried Latte Dock which has an application button for the plasma dashboard but Latte dock does not provide everything I need so I switched back to Cairo dock.
As far as I understand the plasma dashboard is part of KDE and not a feature of latte dock, so I wonder if there is a method to launch the Dashboard by a terminal command so I can add a button to Cairo dock.
I've already searched the web but all I could find was a command to launch the standard start menu.

Thanks.

"Application Dashboard" is a widget, you should be able to just add it.

FWIW: please see the red text in my signature...


Currently running Kubuntu 19.10, Plasma 5.18.0, Frameworks 5.67.0, Qt 5.12.4, kernel 5.3.0-29
FWIW: it is always useful to state the Plasma version and distribution when asking questions in this forum, makes it easier for us to help ...

Thanks for the hint with the widget. But is there a way to trigger the widget by terminal?
I'm on the latest KDE neon user edition with plasma 5.17.5.

maybe the hint is in https://www.reddit.com/r/kde/comments/a ... dashboard/: I don't know for Cairo dock, but running it from the Latte dock should be feasible with this command:
Code: Select all
qdbus org.kde.lattedock /Latte activateLauncherMenu

I already read the post on reddit (also others I found on google) I also tried it but it didn't work. I also had a quick look into the source of latte-dock on github how it trigger the dashboard but I didn't find anything.
It's not this important, I just thought there would be a command or a script to trigger the dashboard.
But anyway thanks for your help @Mamarok
