I am having issues with the Virtual Desktop switching, which started when I tried to play Kerbal Space Program through Steam about a week ago. I have rebooted a few times since then but the problem hasn't changed.
- The upper left screen edge is set to show "Desktop Grid", and now does nothing when I mouse over it. The other screen edges still work (set to Application Launcher and Show Desktop) so I believe it's just a problem with the desktop grid.
- The virtual desktop is set to show the "Slide" animation when switching between desktops, but no longer does - it just instantly switches between desktops.
- In a few other places (like opening the Application launcher), KDE used to show a smooth animation but now the window just instantly appears.
I can still switch between desktops with ctrl-alt-arrow keys, and in the pager in the control panel, but I had grown pretty reliant on the Desktop Grid view for moving windows around between desktops.
Following the troubleshooting tips (https://userbase.kde.org/Troubleshooting), I created a new user and everything seemed to work fine there. Deleting the suggested files and rebooting did not fix things though.
Thanks for any help!
