I un-installed plasma as best I could using Yast but I notice that plasma-desktop still runs when I invoke "top". Is there any way to stop this needless consumption of resources?

KDE today releases the first Alpha version of the next-generation Plasma workspace. This kicks off the public testing phase for the next iteration of the popular Free software workspace, code-named "Plasma Next" (referring to the 'next' Plasma release-see below "A note on versioning and naming").
For years, KDE has delivered excellence in its Plasma desktop environment. The Plasma project is so big in itself, it has three parts- Plasma Desktop, Plasma Netbook and the new Plasma Active. Plasma Active turned some heads in October this year, when its first version appeared for tablets.Plasma Active 2 claims that it adapts to the way you use your device.
My plasma-desktop continually crashes. While I haven't been able to track down the cause, I tried putting plasma-desktop in crontab to run every minute as a workaround. crontab just ignored it. I entered its path, still nothing. I then made a shell script to execute "kstart plasma-desktop" which works in konsole but crontab doesn't care about that either.
Hey, new to Fedora. I switched from a KDE base distro to Fedora 20 GNOME 3. I missed the desktop widgets, so I installed plasma-desktop to run on top of GNOME 3. I set it to run automatically at startup with gnome-session-properties. It starts and all, but when I turn off my laptop, plasma-desktop does not save the changes I make.
The KDE developers have been working very hard to have the new Plasma 5 desktop ready in time for the July launch, and it seems that most of the problems have been taken care of. KDE will soon sport a new look for the Plasma desktop, which has been improved in a number of ways. The first thing a regular user will see is that the new Plasma is now much cleaner, better defined, and more modern.
