Plasma bug when multiple monitors in use

the context menu bug has not yet been fixed

and has gotten worse after the plasma update from yesterday …
now the sddm logout screen dialog is displayed on the top screen only and three times … one below the other

Kde has just been updated to version 5.23 KDE frameworks 5.87.0 Maybe you try with the latest updates.

I was looking at this but i didn’t go to look at your initial post so i thought you didn’t have the latest updates. These multiple monitor issues exist and can be affected by many things such a graphics card in use. I couldn’t be much help as i don’t have multiple monitors hooked up to even try it. I am running KDE. Have you tried it on Wayland? If it’s a bug KDE will have to be informed and try to fix it.

yeah, context menu is back now on primary screen (except the dialog for a delete action is missing)
wayland is not ready yet for Kwin and multi screen setups …
maybe I will disable the show logout dialog in plasma settings - shutdown, reboot without asking

When the menu is open. Push and hold “shift” then “Delete” replaces “Move to Trash”

the move to trash action works just the delete dialog are no longer shown

In Dolphin, click on “settings”
then click on “configure dolphin”
click on “context menu”
put a check mark in “Delete”
Click on “Apply” then “OK”

Voila, your delete dialog is back.
Evidently they disabled some options when they released the “25th Anniversary Version”.
I guess because it’s their Anniversary they feel they can change existing options back to what they want and what you want doesn’t matter.

This was one of the first things I fixed after the latest update.

@Kresimir Yes I am slowly becoming a KDE Plasma aficionado! :nerd_face:
You and Gnome 40 finally wore me down.



I meant by that the dialog is no longer shown when a file from the desktop should be deleted, in standard folders the dialog is displayed

Sorry, I was on the wrong page. I thought you was talking about Dolphin.
