No right-click context menu when using BSPWM

Hello,

I recently switched over to Arch Linux and decided to go with Plasma 5 as my DE. Because I was used to BSPWM, I set it up according to this link: https://userbase.kde.org/Tutorials/Using_Other_Window_Managers_with_Plasma.
It works well and I can use sxhkd for shortcuts. However, when right-clicking the desktop, the context menu doesn't appear anymore, so I can't add panels or configure appearance. Every other menu works as expected. I have tried the following solutions and nothing has worked so far:

I have deleted the ~/.config/plasma-org.kde.plasma-desktop-appletsrc and reset all custom settings, but it's still not working. Here is a pastebin of my current plasma-org.kde.plasma-desktop-appletsrc:

These are the versions I am using:

plasmashell --version
plasmashell 5.18.5
kf5-config --version
Qt: 5.14.2
KDE Frameworks: 5.70.0
kf5-config: 1.0
bspwm -version
0.9.7-10-g2ffd9c1

This issue is probably caused by BSPWM, but how can I fix it without needing to go back to KWin?
