Description:

Excalibur is a simple Launcher with two columns and a search bar on top and a session control (logout, restart, shutdown) on the bottom.
It is based upon kicker and made after the image of the Lancelot menu launcher available for KDE SC 4.

The search uses the global Plasma Search to search for not only applications but also files and recent documents.
Last changelog:

2.7 2 years ago

- Fixed removing and adding apps to favorites for specific activities (Plasma 5.12.x)
- Fixed moving of favorites when more then visible (so if you have to scroll down to see other favorites and want to move them around)

This reminds me of the time when we did KBFX - seems to be very similiar - I am dying of nostalgy here

7 I just tried installing it again, this time using ocs-url, and it worked. I too wish it cold be resized and that there was a configuration option to move the categories to the left pane and the apps to the right like Whisker Menu has, then this would be a perfect menu for those of us coming to KDE from Xfce.

The only thing that I would ask is that the developers make it resizable (like the whisker menu)...otherwise it rocks!

Man, if there was a way to make the menu taller I would absolutely be using this with no questions asked.
I don't like having recent applications or recent documents, and when I disable those the menu gets shorter since those entries are gone. Too short.

Hey Guys,

Anybody have a solution for stock Kubuntu 18.04.3 running KDE Plasma 5.12.9 for the error message:

Error loading QML file: ~/.local/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.plasma.excalibur/contents/ui/main.qml:84:9: Cannot assign to non-existent property "showAllSubtree"

I had this running on Neon with KDE Plasma 5.14.0

I've installed the p59_p511 version.

I really want to get this working.

Thanks!

If an issue comes like local/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.plasma.excalibur/contents/ui/main.qml:84:9: Cannot assign to non-existent property "showAllSubtree"

The following commnads solved the problem. Got the solution from some other forum.

sudo apt install qml-module-qt-labs-platform
killall plasmashell; kstart5 plasmashell

Currently the number of favourites is limited to the height of the number of categories. Anything more than that requires scrolling. Can the numbers of favourites be extended further or until the search bar touches the bottom of the screen?

Alas, version 2.7 does not work in Plasma 5.14.3
The problem is probably already sickeningly familiar:
Error loading QML file: ~/.local/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.plasma.excalibur/contents/ui/main.qml:84:9: Cannot assign to non-existent property "showAllSubtree"

2.5 seems to work, though. Either that, or Plasma has big trouble cleanly uninstalling widgets.

9 look very clean and usefull.

I woulc switch the two rows and have activated by default
Zulest benutzte Anwendungen which would be from my point of view more usefull than pin manuel apps.

On 2 updated installations of Manjaro with KDE 5.12, excalibur's favourites disappear at every login.
Iv' tried both: uninstall plasmoiod, clear all relative folders in home and then install plasmoid again, and "play" with .local/share/kactivitymanagerd/resources/, but nothing works.
