Desktop hardware abstraction


Solid is a device integration framework. It provides a way of querying and interacting with hardware independently of the underlying operating system.

It provides the following features for application developers:

  • Hardware Discovery
  • Power Management
  • Network Management


If you are using CMake, you need to have

find_package(KF6Solid NO_MODULE)

(or similar) in your CMakeLists.txt file, and you need to link to KF6::Solid.

See the documentation for the Solid namespace, and the tutorials on TechBase.

There is also a Solid song.
