Panel disappears in wayland randomly

After switching from xorg11 to wayland kde, there is this one issue I keep dealing with. My panels would disappear at random times(like when I do a simple search in my start menu or opening up an application). Not only that, but my desktop would turn into a black screen. Changing compositor modes does not fix this nor does resetting the plasma panels to its defaults.

I think wayland is not supported yet well on kde. Sorry mate, you will have to use gnome to get the full wayland experience :grin: or is it xwayland?

Why would you use Wayland on Plasma when you have Xorg? :rofl:

Wayland is rubbish, it can’t even run xeyes :eyes:

While KDE Wayland support has gotten a long way in the last year, there sure are more than enough small things that won’t work properly. I personally would use Xorg, as @Kresimir suggested. And if you really want to use Wayland, Gnome or Sway are probably the only environments that work properly right now.

Not entirely. For example, there is no alternative for Xeyes that works on Wayland, as far as I know.
