Sometimes randomly out of the blue while in a Zoom conference call the desktop freezes, I can use the cursor but can’t click (like kwin not working).
I am using nvidia card with commercial drivers installed using Kubuntu drivers thingy.
What I try:
In a new virtual terminal I kill:
kwin, krunner, plasmashell.
then I start them with:
Sometimes works, sometimes not.
Digging into the dmesg logs I only see Audit errors for all snap like apps (zoom is installed from apt) that are spammed.
What should I investigate in which logs when this happens again?
I also have an nvidia card and some crashes, I usually just do
kwin_x11 --replace or
Sadly I can’t help further.
This post should be in the # category, not help #. community

Yes, but the whole plasma is frozen, I can’t use krunner that’s why I use kstart to start services.
I use a virtual console to restart services, how to pass arguments to commands executing using kstart? So that I can pass the --replace argument.
for me it’s flickering and tearing, so I also don’t see krunner (at least properly) but after pressing the shortcut autocomplete does the rest
