Like the look of the macOS and iOS control centre and want something similar for your KDE Plasma desktop?
Check out ‘Control Centre‘. This is a new third-party Plasma widget directly “inspired” by Apple’s oft-lauded toggle n’ settings hub.
It’s not a 1:1 clone, and a (current) lack of interface transitions makes the experience of using it feel blunter than Apple’s version — but hey: it’s a promising start.
Using Control Center you can interact with:
- Wired and wireless network
- Do not disturb
- Night color
- Light/darm mode
- Display brightness
- MRPIS media controls
I should note that while network option pages through so you can swap between different wi-fi networks and wired connections, the Bluetooth option doesn’t do this, it just toggles Bluetooth on and off.
A small selection of settings allow you to show/hide some of the available modules, as well as define two custom commands you can trigger with a click. You can also pick a custom icon to use in the panel, should the default ‘settings’ glyph used not match your preferences.
The KDE Control Centre widget is free, open source add-on for the KDE Plasma desktop. You can grab it from the KDE Store direct or (recommended) install it from the Add Widgets > Get New Widgets dialog. Do keep in mind that this widget is under active development and may not be totally stable, all of the time — FYI!
