switch back and forth between plasmashell and liquidshell by simply replacing the ....desktop file in the relevant autostart subdirectory - very handy !

How to start liquidshell instead of plasmashell
-----------------------------------------------

just create liquidshell.desktop into your ~/.config/autostart/ folder

Content:

To avoid the start of plasmashell, create a file
~/.config/autostart/plasmashell.desktop

(or ~/.config/autostart/org.kde.plasmashell.desktop - depending on what's the name in
/etc/xdg/autostart/ as it seems this was changed recently)

with the following 2 lines as content:
