Any workaround for the kde systray applets nubifying?

Just installed, the systray apps cannot display their menus, the size of the window is reduced to a little handle thing, biggest problem with this is the inability to access the Wi-Fi SSID list.

So does anyone know if there’s anything that will cause this to act normally, as through a lot of fiddling with the nubbin, a couple of times I saw the menu appear but I have yet to see it actually stick and act properly.

There does seem to be an upstream bug about this, but I’ve yet to find any sort of workaround, and the bug doesn’t really list a solution yet displays it as solved.

So, this does seem to be some sort of regression with the new version of QT, but I’m not sure when any fixes that are deployed upstream will actually make it to the Garuda repository.

Restart your system, it’s KDE :slight_smile:

I’m starting to think you run Linux on a Nintendo switch.

I’ll give it an update and reboot in 4 hours when this job I got going finishes.

I mean I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt.

I don’t think there is a workaround other than wait for next Plasma release with the fix.

Would executing plasmashell --replace be a temporary workaround? I still use that on the rare occasion that plasma acts up or glitches out.

i tried that, no joy.

Let’s see…

  • You insult one of the Founders of Garuda Linux, then
  • You question his advocacy of one of the primary KDE troubleshooting tools, a reboot after a system update, then
  • You treat him extremely condescendingly.

Why don’t you go pay someone for help?
