Trying to Add a Widget to Panel Resets the Whole Desktop



When I right-click on one of my panels, click “Add Widgets”, the whole panels just disappear for a second and come back. The desktop crashes I think.

Is this a common issue in latest KDE update? Is anyone experiencing this right now?

Thanks in advance.

I’m having the same issue. I was using Kinoite and it was happening on that. I then tried the KDE Spin and it’s the same issue. I did some searching and found there was a bug in KDE that is close, but it looks like the root cause was never solved. The annoying part is that there isn’t any known work-around for it at this time. Right now I’m stuck without a systray.

@alys I have posted an issue. We’ll see how it goes.

I had opened one already but it was marked as a duplicate. Here’s the main issue.
