"eos-reboot-required" bug on KDE

If you update any core packages on KDE, you receive the information that reboot is recommended, and also this error:

GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.Notifications.Error.ExcessNotificationGeneration: Created too many similar notifications in quick succession
GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.Notifications.Error.ExcessNotificationGeneration: Created too many similar notifications in quick succession

You may reproduce this error by running sudo eos-reboot-required.

This is an upstream reboot bug. log out first then reboot.

Actually it works normally. I receive the notification on my kde desktop. I just receive that complaint on the terminal. Upstream? Which package? Plasma?

i think it has to do a bit to Kde only

notify-send its a kde thing :slight_smile:

you see it too

For kde would me more like

kdialog --title "This is a passive popup" --passivepopup \
"It will disappear in about 10" 10

I think lol

But then the script can be more complicated
