I don't see how this is relevant. What not working exactly? Update your system to newer framework version.

Unfortunatly after installation of the new version my desktop freezes on login. How can I remove the widget from my configuration manually, from console?

I've PM you with command.
But this situation is not related to my widget.
People reporting today that error https://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=289&t=162651&sid=2cd52e51ab7a1d61d39ad900d242da7c
And there is global admin message about upstream bug.

Is there any way to allow adding a real icon instead of just the >> ?

That would make this perfect!

Yes, definitly a must have feature, a selectable icon is important.

The workaround with exchanging the arrow *.pngs works well. I backed up the original icons first.

I set the file attributes to 555, maybe it will restrict an update to overwrite them.

The script is so easy that you can easily add more icons by yourself, but that would be overwritten at an update. So its better risu add it to the main code.

Go to '~/.local/share/plasma/plasmoids/risu.win.quicklaunch/contents/icons/' and replace used file with your icon. In configuration panel there is big arrow if you like.
Be aware that eventual updates will replace your icon so keep one as backup. The idea of this launcher is to look similar to windows quicklaunch which doesn't offer to change >> as I know.

By the way I can add non-standard features (like selecting icon from file in settings) if I receive pling (the one which increases plings counter in my profile).
Plings really helps.

Nice one! But on which settings the coloring is based? Here the folders' text is white (great for the dark background), but the other items' text is black and the hover color is dark blue. None of the other menus uses these unfortunate colors and I'd like to change the black and blue to maybe light grey and violet so that it matches my desktop colors.
