Steam menus get stuck on the screen

Hello, sometimes things get stuck on the screen
Right now I have not open anything but It’s style here, no matter what it will be appear on screen even if I will run application in full screen. The only way is to deal with it is reboot. But I know there are some commands which will restart the desktop or something like this. I’m looking for tips to deal with this problem.

Excuse my bad English.

Well, this list was stuck from the Steam list. I tried exiting Steam and it worked, but I want to hear any other ways to fix this problem, because it happens quite often.

That is absolutely unnecessary. It’s a known bug in the Plasma compositor, and it will probably be fixed in the upcoming Plasma 5.23.2, which is already in the Testing branch right now.

Whenever this happens, you can simply restart the compositor by issuing the following command in a terminal… :arrow_down:

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

Given that this is a long command, I have made an alias for it in my ~/.bashrc. If you use bash as your shell, add the following to your ~/.bashrc:arrow_down:

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

Then, next time it happens, you just open a terminal window and type… :arrow_down:


It’s a known issue. Grab the Steam window and drag it, the stuck menu will disappear.
