Description Michael Hirmke 2018-03-05 20:52:13 UTC
After installing Tumbleweed snapshot 20180301 with plasma 5.12.2 I got lots of new warning messages in my journal logs.
I learnt that logging for these messages switched from a file to the journal log.
According to
one can stop these messages by setting


or in

But adding these settings to one or both of these files didn't reduce the huge amount of messages.

Does it work if you install "kdebugsettings" and run it to turn off debug?
Comment 2 Michael Hirmke 2018-03-06 22:37:02 UTC
In the first place kdedebugsettings says

"You have a rule as '*=true' or '*=false' which will override all your specific rule. Better to remove it."
Comment 3 Michael Hirmke 2018-03-06 22:41:38 UTC
And no, setting logging for all KDE apps to "Off" doesn't help either.
Even after rebooting all apps continue logging as before.
Comment 4 Michael Hirmke 2018-03-06 22:47:31 UTC
Oops, the button "Turn debug off" doesn't turn off logging for all apps 8-(
Lots of entries remain on setting warning or even info.

Do I have to switch off every single entry? That would be a lot of work, there are hundred or more of them.
Comment 5 Michael Hirmke 2018-03-06 22:52:50 UTC
Ok, got it.
Fundamental misunderstanding on my side 8-(


in ~/.config/QtProject/qtlogging.ini did, what I *really* wanted.
