The fact that the same problem exists also in Kali Linux probably means this might be resulting from the current state of KDE Plasma packages in Debian Testing (Bookworm) repositories.
So, until this is resolved upstream, a workaround might be a simple script (e.g. like a backend for the Command Output plasmoid) that periodically runs "apt list --upgradable".
Desktops / [SOLVED] KDE Plasma's Discover...
Last post by Sadi - December 11, 2022, 09:35:27 AM
I've begun using Sparky KDE recently, and preferred using KDE Plasma's own software notifier instead of Sparky's as I'm more used to it. However, after a while (several weeks?) it suddenly stopped showing up in the system tray.
I've re-installed Discover, I can see it both in "/etc/xdg/autostart" and in "System Activity" (as a running process). I can see nothing contradictory in either "System Settings > Notifications > Discover" or "Configure System Tray... > Entries > Updates": it's "Show when relevant" status, but only shows up in when I switch "Always shown").

I wonder why it's not showing up in system tray when updates are available?
I'm afraid it might be related to some Sparky-specific configuration regarding software update notification that interferes with Discover Notifier, which somehow was suppressed at the beginning, and somehow came back to life again.

I found how to restore an Icon. Right click on the Whisker icon space and then on Properties, the pop window under Appearance tab provides the means to change/add a icon.  I found the icons in /usr/share/icons/sparky/about

Hope this helps someone else

Using Sparky 7, my panel icon for the Application Menu is the same color as the balance of the panel without any visible icon.

I've gone through all the settings options thinking maybe that's where I could find a solution but I haven't  As best as I can tell there is no icon.  The function exists, if I click in the area the Application Menu opens.

How to I recover or add a icon to it?

A user has to think to do this, but I right clicked on the Welcome menu item and added it to my bottom task panel.

The 2022.12 Sparky Mate release fixed the graphical driver crashes in Live mode for me :thumbsup:
