Hi there everyone!
I'm experiencing a graphical issue since the latest Manjaro KDE update. The issue is as follows:
All of my windows have become borderless (
screenshot 1). I'm unable to resize, drag, minimize, close or move them in any way, shape or form. I need to resort to ending processes to close programs.
I can click program icons in the taskbar and open programs. However, right clicking their taskbar icons > close doesn't work -- it's as if they weren't open in the first place (
Alt+F3 does not trigger border settings. Alt-tab has no output.
The keyboard's output goes to the topmost window, even if I select a "typeable" field in another window. For instance: if I first open Firefox then open the terminal and type anything on it, I can no longer type into Firefox's search bar even if I've selected it with the mouse. All text output goes to terminal until I close it through the menubar.
I've tried creating a new superuser and running a "fresh" KDE through it but the issues persists there -- e.g. windows are still borderless and unmovable despite using default settings.
I've tried changing themes -- to breeze, etc. -- but the issue still persists.
This is the closest instance of the issue I could find in the entire forums (
It's worth noting I'm currently running KDE on two machines and only one of them has expressed this behavior after the latest update.
I was running KWin when the issue started and tried using lightdm but the issue persisted.
In case it's useful, here's my
inxi -Fxxxz output:

And here's a pastebin with my most recent
Screenshot 1: window "stuck" to the top left corner of the screen. No borders, unresizeable.
Screenshot 2: Firefox tray icon acts as if Firefox was closed -- e.g. can't right click on it to close Firefox.
All help is greatly appreciated! Please let me know if I can further explain the issue in any way.
