I am using Kubuntu 18.04 with KDE Plasma 5.12.6. When I add some custom shortcut keys from the settings, they work for a 1-2 minutes then suddenly stop. Just nothing happens. Then I have to go back to settings and reapply them but again - they work just for a while. Is there a way to fix this bug?

I made these shortcut keys:

  • ctrl+alt+backspace to run command killall plasmashell

  • ctrl+alt+t to run command konsole

Edit: I think I found what is the reason. Suddenly some apps disappear from the system tray in the panel. And then I am unable to use the custom shortcuts. When I add new panel or restart the plasmashell they are working again. Strange.

  • @DKBose yeah, very odd. Some apps constantly disappear and appear in the panel. – fingolfin Dec 1 '18 at 11:40
  • Yes, clean install. – fingolfin Dec 1 '18 at 12:26
  • Okay. Perhaps, you could install inxi and then add the output of inxi -Fxz to your question in case there's something about your system specs that may provide a clue. – DK Bose Dec 1 '18 at 12:30
