Sometimes Info Boxes Don't Disappear When They're Supposed To

I’ve noticed a small bug with the settings app in KDE where the info box that pops up when you hover over something doesn’t go away. I’ve attached a screenshot of what it looks like. It has gone away when I close the settings app.

To me this is nothing but a minor annoyance, but I thought I’d pass it on.

It might help to restart the compositor. :arrow_down:

qdbus org.kde.KWin /Compositor suspend && qdbus org.kde.KWin /Compositor resume

If it happens a lot, then perhaps it is best to create an alias for that in your ~/.bashrc or ~/.zshrc, depending on which one you use as your interactive shell. :arrow_down:

alias restart-compositor='qdbus org.kde.KWin /Compositor suspend && qdbus org.kde.KWin /Compositor resume'
