Description David Pérez 2023-05-23 14:17:46 UTC

1. Open browser like i.e. Firefox
2.  Open krusader
3. Krusader window obscures Firefox
3.  Select any file in krusader and try to drag to the firefox icon in the task bar


The icons in the task bar are dragged to a new position


The firefox window comes to the top, so that I have a chance to drop the file to a hidden window.
It used to work so before latest update.

Linux/KDE Plasma: Neon 22.04

Any chance you could attach a screen recording of this happening? This is working for me on X11 in Plasma 6: drag a file to a Task Manager icon and hover for a moment, and that app window will move to the top.

Are you using X11 or Wayland?
Comment 2 David Pérez 2023-05-24 08:01:53 UTC
I'm using X11.
Which tool do you recommend to record screen?
I've never done so.
Comment 3 David Pérez 2023-05-24 14:02:10 UTC
After restarting the system, it works ok.
Comment 4 Nate Graham 2023-05-24 15:47:06 UTC
On X11, Peek and SimpleScreenRecorder are good screen recording apps.

Are you saying you can't reproduce the issue any more?
