Description of problem:
In Plasma, the "Add Panel" function makes Plasma to crash. A salvage reboot is the only way to reboot. But after the reboot, the panel is there.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Still valid with Mageia-6-sta1-x86_64-DVD from May 20
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).
I don't experience this anymore in current Cauldron. Should be OK on the next ISOs.
Back with Mga6-sta2
Still valid with version from Wed Feb 22 15:48:28 CET 2017
i will test today
i just tested on a fedora rawhide, and it crashes too.
So not mageia Specific bug.
upstream bugreport: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=372881
FYI, it works fine on Linux Mint 18
Yes but plasma 5.6 if if i read correctly, so maybe a regression upstream regarding this.
