I have an issue where it seems like part of KDE is breaking when rebooting my system. For example, panels and widgets do not display, and my desktop background only shows on my second monitor (not the primary laptop display).
I have been able to fix this temporarily by running
kquitapp5 plasmashell and restarting it with
kstart5 plasmashell, and widgets and panels return, but this does not surive a reboot.
(also, as an aside, it seems that I don’t have the menu bar at the top of individual windows anymore, but instead it is a kind of floating ‘global menu bar’ like on Macs. Not really the important issue though.)
I’ve been trying to figure this out since yesterday, any help is appreciated. Let me know if I need to post anything for assistance.
I appreciate the help!
