Manjaro KDE plasma Global Menu

The global menu only takes effect after the application is minimized once .

No, it always takes effect immediately, but only with KDE/Qt applications. There is however a bug in how it handles GTK- and Electron-based applications, whereby the global menu is shown only after some action ─ like switching over to a KDE application and back.

It’s a known bug that has been around for a while now ─ I believe since Plasma 5.18.4 ─ and it has been reported to the KDE developers upstream, but so far they don’t seem to be too motivated to fix it. :man_shrugging:
