Reminder: Update your PC info for the next round of statistics updates

Posted by , | Views: 3,771

This is your once a month reminder to make sure your PC information is correct on your user profiles. A fresh batch of statistics is generated on the 1st of each month.

You need to be logged in to see when you last updated your PC info!

You can see the statistics any time on this page.

If you want your details to actually be included in the monthly survey, be sure to head here and tick the box labelled "Include your PC details in our Monthly User Statistics?" and hit the "Update" button at the bottom, it's opt-in and you can uncheck it at any time not to be included in future statistics gathering.

PC Info is automatically purged if it hasn't been updated, or if you don't click the link to remain in for 2 years. This way we prevent too much stale data and don't hold onto your data for longer than required. To be clear though, no personal information (no user ID, no IP, nothing like that) is stored when generating the charts.

Also, we recently fixed up the trend charts, enjoy! We will look to add the ability to select the time period you wish to view the trend charts over as well.

Hey at least you are not a party of one in the statistics, go look at the number of K2000M's in the statistics. I really need to come up with some money to get a new laptop.

Thanks for showing trends without empty periods!

One feature stopped working now though. Before the legend was clickable, and you could toggle graphs to see only a subset. Now it's not working anymore.

Also, one suggestion. It would be useful in trends to show total number of users, not just percentages. That will give an idea how big is the dataset.

What I would like to see are some Wayland numbers. It is used by Fedora and Ubuntu 17.10 by default, but it would be interesting to see how Wayland is adapted by the users. I use Wayland with Plasma since a long time, for gaming it is just now getting stable enough. Maybe the right time to start measuring Wayland adoption?

Yep, that's an interesting metric. I was trying to use it recently, but KWin Wayland session keeps segfaulting, which is possibly related to amdgpu DisplayPort bugs. Does it ever work for you over DisplayPort?

I use only DisplayPort for my 4k screen. I adopted amdgpu quite early as well, but usually with my RX480 the mesa drivers have been quite stable. There have been issues, especially with mesa-git from time to time, but since 2 months I didn't see any Kwin segfault anymore. For gaming I use Kwin-git (kwayland-git + kdecoration-git) now, as several input bugs have been fixed. But either Kwin 5.13.3 or Kwin-git work reliable on Wayland for me, I can't complain. The only real issue I have is that the amdgpu driver crashes Qt and Kwin, if the screen goes into energy saving mode, so I had to disable this in Plasma... but standby works. I know I should open a bug report for this, but I struggled to get a reliable backtrace on Arch.

Looks like 5.13.3 improves some things. I'm still on 5.13.2.

At which point is Kwin segfaulting for you? Is it really Kwin or maybe only Plasma? Because if that is the case, you should be able to click ALT + SPACE or ALT + F2 to kill and restart plasma.
