Description phrxmd 2021-11-08 13:17:44 UTC
On Wayland, KRunner always opens on a particular screen, when in X11 it opens on the screen with the mouse pointer.

1. In the Wayland session, with multiple monitors, invoke KRunner.
2. Move the mouse pointer to another monitor and invoke KRunner again.

KRunner always opens on a particular screen - in my case my notebook's screen, which happens to be the leftmost screen.

KRunner should open on the screen where the mouse pointer is, like it does on X11.

Can confirm on Arch Linux (Plasma 5.23.3) as well as KDE Neon unstable, Krunner always opens on the left screen even if the cursor is on the right screen.
Comment 2 phrxmd 2022-02-09 22:54:27 UTC
Still happens with KRunner 5.90.0 on Plasma 5.24.0.
Comment 3 ilker 2022-02-15 08:21:19 UTC
Can confirm that it doesn't working on Kde Neon with 5.24.0
