Plasma Workspace as systemd user-session
The ultimate goal of this project is, to make use of systemd's support for user-sessions wherever possible for running a Plasma Workspace. This support is to be implemented in a way which doesn't get in the way of legacy/cross-platform support, so running a Plasma Workspace without a systemd user-session underneath will still be possible.
What are the benefits?
- Parallelized and faster startup of the Plasma Workspace after login
- More finegrained control over running services
- Increased stability by eliminating existing hacks in startkde, ksmserver, kdeinit, …
- Cleaner definition of dependencies between Plasma Workspace components
