• Notifications appear in the wrong place and KDE crashes suddenly


    Hi,

    I’ve got the problem that the notifications appear on the wrong place: Instead of on the lower right corner, they appear now on the upper right corner. I tried to change it in the menu, already, but it didn’t work.

    And, I don’t know if there’s a link between this: Sometimes KDE crashes when I search something in the menu, not everytime, but often.

    I tried to rename the kde folders like local, kde4, config, but nothing has helped.

    I am using KDE Plasma 5.11.5

    When I restart the shell in the terminal, I get these errors:

  • Regarding the “type searchword and Plasma crashes” issue:
    Same here on two Antergos setups (and even on standard Arch):

    • one i7 Skylake/16GB Ram notebook with Antergos setup from end of 2016
    • one Threadripper/32 GB workstation with Antergos setup from 2017/10

    Typing in a searchword very fast (like “thunderbird” in 1.5seconds) within the standard plasma start menue makes the whole plasma shell either restart or crash completely. Same in krunner. If krunner is already crashed and then the searchword is typed fast enouth within the standard k menue and plasma5 crashes afterwards there is no chance to do anything with the remaining black screen and the mousepointer. CTRL ALT BACKSPACE and good bye.

    Problem is there at least for 1 month.

    However. I’ve tested in at standard Arch (older setup from 2014/01 but latest update level) --> same also there!

  • While the problem with the notifcations seems to be fixed, the crashing menu is still an issue.

    Unfortunately, I can’t see anything strange in the logs.
