I have a strange issue and would be open to any ideas anyone has.
After upgrading to 5.21, Desktop Effects are constantly disabled after the computer wakes up from sleep.
I get a notification from Kwin saying: “Desktop Effects have been disabled by another application.”
I have no idea what application that is or why its disabling Kwin (I’m guessing its a power saving app that triggers sleep maybe?)
I did a test run of KDE Neon for several days and Desktop Effects werent’ disabled there. I also tested Solus, and didn’t encounter the issue there either.
I’m guessing its something in Manjaro that 5.21 isn’t playing nice with.
Does anyone have any clue why this is happening or what I can do?
I’m running an AMD gpu using the open source drivers. I know this sounds like a trivial issue but part of the appeal of Plasma is the polish you get with Desktop Effects.
