Running kwin --replace & in a terminal seems to help at least with newly started applications.
In addition one can throw in a:

Did you try to edit ~/.config/kactivitymanagerd-statsrc file?
And a tip, never edit manually your Plasma config files when you're in a Plasma session. This is because Plasma overwrites any manual changes in your config files when you end your session.
I normally use
sudo apt purge **package-name**
to do this. I did it right now as a test, trying to remove okular and it marked only kile, kile-l10n and okular to remove (kile depends on okular to run). Did you tried it?
And if it try to remove everything, you can agree with it (on console, not inside Plasma) and then install kde-baseapps, to install only ...
After trying KDE Neon, I switched to Pop! OS and it threw message that it couldn't boot because of security policies of computer. I had Secure Boot enabled in BIOS. I couldn't see the option for Secure Boot at first and had to set Boot Mode to UEFI in BIOS. Secure Boot seems to block some graphic drivers, but I am amazed how the OS booted at all!
After following Nico's instructions about changing the system text DPI to something higher like 144, 192, etc., there is a way to turn on display scaling again and have Kate looking good. However, results may vary between desktop environments.
Set your display scaling to the desired fractional value (I happen to use 1.5x).
You can set the environment ...
This question is two years old, but I thought I'd give my two cents since I encountered the same issue yesterday while setting up i3 on Manjaro KDE myself. The network manager wouldn't automatically connect to the network that I previously set up with the KDE connection manager despite both "Connect Automatically" and "Available to all users" boxes were ...
Uninstall a package (for example okular) with sudo dpkg -r --force-depends okular instead which uninstalls only okular, but does not uninstall any of its dependencies. Even if any of its dependencies would become orphaned packages as a result of this command it still does not uninstall them, although you can list any orphaned packages afterwards using ...
For an one-time application, you can right-click the window title bar, and select "More Actions > No Border".
If you want a particular program's window to always be borderless, you could go to System Settings -> Window Management -> Window Rules, and define a rule that will automatically make that window borderless anytime the window is created.
I suggested Dolan run Wireshark on the laptop, to look for the large packets. Wireshark showed the laptop received fragmented IP packets. (It did not show the laptop transmitting any jumbo frames). If you reassembled the fragmented packets, they would be larger than 1500 bytes. Perhaps the fragmented packets triggered bad behaviour in the router's ...
.config/okularrc and .config/okularpartrc come to mind. But I don't know if that will suffice, I just checked my home dir. You'll probably need to check the contents of rpm -ql okular-$YOUR_VERSION, but this is just guessing, I've never tried what you're are trying to achieve.
I had the exact same symptoms, after days of investigation it turned out to be a known DoSS virus, as described here:
I've removed it by following the instructions in the top post, now all is good. Here's my original post: Fedora 30 Workstation breaking ...
The sudo command has a switch to preserve environment variables.
-E, --preserve-env preserve user environment when running command
So that you can run the command with -E switch. Example:
sudo -E wireshark
If you don't need to run privacy critical applications like web browsers, you will be better off adding -E switch with sudo. We cannot ...
