Still valid with Mageia-6-sta1-x86_64-DVD from May 20
Comment 2 André DESMOTTES 2016-06-26 22:19:09 CEST
Somebody on MLO forum found out a workaround.
Open the /home/user/.config/kwinrc file and in the [Compositing] part, set the "Enable" entry to "false".

I can confirm this.  The reason I was adding a Panel, is because after the upgrade from Mageia 5, all I had was an empty panel.  Once I removed that one, a regular default panel appeared in the same position (bottom of the screen).
Comment 4 David Walser 2016-08-10 00:30:27 CEST
I don't experience this anymore in current Cauldron.  Should be OK on the next ISOs.

upstream bugreport:  https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=372881
Comment 10 André DESMOTTES 2017-02-26 10:49:02 CET
FYI, it works fine on Linux Mint 18
Comment 11 Nicolas Lécureuil 2017-02-26 10:52:11 CET
Yes but plasma 5.6 if if i read correctly, so maybe a regression upstream regarding this.
