Context menu lagging

hello there ,
after last update the look of the context menu changed but that’s nothing :sweat_smile:

The problem is that the context menu is lagging in a weird manner :

Also the CPU usage increases and fan sound

my system :

OS: Garuda Linux
DE: KDE plasma 6.0.3
KDE Frameworks: 6.1.0
Qt version: 6.7.0
Kernel: 6.8.5-zen1-1-zen (64-bit)

Device-2: AMD Sun XT [Radeon HD 8670A/8670M/8690M / R5 M330 M430 Radeon

API: EGL v: 1.5 drivers: crocus,kms_swrast,radeonsi,swrast
platforms: gbm,x11,surfaceless,device

renderer: Mesa Intel HD Graphics 4400 (HSW GT2)
API: Vulkan v: 1.3.279 drivers: intel,llvmpipe surfaces: xcb,xlib

Tried to :

-changed the kernel to LTS
-changed to wayland session
-Logged in from another user as it could be a config problem
-changed the themes to defaults
-stopped the Desktop effects
-changed the resolution and scaling
-reinstalled to OS and the fresh install comes with plasma 5.27 so there were no problem until I updated to latest and the problem appeared again >

Is this a real issue or just me ?!

PS: are you using kvantum by any chance?

Same issue here,
I’m using kvantum and I think he is using kvantum too this happened after I updated my arch
the theme I’m using is sweet dark with candy icons
I’m guessing that this is happening because transparent effect of the kvantum theme
I have had a lot of problems with KDE6 lately a lot of unpatched bugs and incompatibilities

I managed to fix by downloading the fixed version of my theme Sweet-transparent-toolbar


and applying it to me kvantum.

this fixed a lot’s of problems including the ones that i mentioned earlier such as blur and transparent windows being buggy and slow and my menu having some weird shadows around it + being very laggy
