after leaving sitting for a while, plasmashell started to have strange behavior. hitting icons in menubar would not open them though i could open new programs using the launcher. though these would open with no top bar such as file and the ability to open and close. trying to open a terminal would have the same affect as the terminal would appear without and lock itself to the right corner. tried killing and starting a new plasma shell though this did not solve the problem. some other things i have noticed i can not active screen edge to open all windows() and text boxes in apps do not work such as with ksysguard.
EDIT: i am using xorg not wayland encase that could be the issue though i do have wayland session installed.
