This issue manifests since at least several versions, I do not remember right when it appeared first.

In fact, there are two issue. The KWin crashes its effects with no aparent reason and that icons getting lost. Roughly similar with what Darth Vader describe.

That happens in the system with Radeon video, within the Intel one Plasma5 works fine.

Have you tried turning off the effects? I disabled the compositor because it didn't play nice with NVIDIA and OpenGL full screen applications.

I tried that, with the effect turned off there is no KWin effects crashing, but still appears the icons issue.

However, without the effects, I feel that the deskop behave very bad and with a lot of tears.

So I keep them on, with OpenGL 2.0, because with the 3.1 the issues appears often and XRender is really slow.

This one is for textured video, then has effects only while using Xv as output driver on MPlayer, as example.

NVIDIA provides compositing. I don't know about the Radeon driver. Before people rage at me I'm going to stop derailing this thread. I don't like the KDE compositor myself. Maybe look for a different one like this one if the Radeon driver can't do it: https://slackbuilds.org/repository/1.../compton-conf/

I do, yeah.

And if your video card can't handle it? That's why Slackware also ships Xfce.

XDG_RUNTIME_DIR and /var/run in tmpfs

By default the $XDG_RUNTIME_DIR environment variable is not set in Slackware, nor is /var/run sym linked to /run.

With many other distros the $XDG_RUNTIME_DIR defaults to /run/user/$UID. In many distros, /var/run is a sym link to /run. Both Slackware and most other distros mount /run to tmpfs, but Slackware does not create the /var/run sym link or create a default $XDG_RUNTIME_DIR variable. Using a sym link and tmpfs creates a nice way to clean the directory on reboot.

The sym link could be created in rc.S. The variable could be set in /etc/profile.d with:

Code:
if [ ! -d /run/user/$UID ]; then
  mkdir -p /run/user/$UID
fi
export XDG_RUNTIME_DIR=/run/user/$UID
Possibly some people would want /var/run fixed rather than use tmpfs. Perhaps rc.S could source /etc/default/var_run to determine whether to create the sym link.

Code:
/etc/default/var_run
VAR_RUN_IN_TMPFS=true
Just a proposal.

There are several packages with subdirectories in /var/run. Those directories would be lost with tmpfs, so all of these packages would need to be adapted so that their start script recreates the directories with the necessary access rights.

It defaults to /tmp/runtime-user if not set, no idea why would one write it somewhere other than /tmp.
I usually mount tmpfs as /tmp, and TBH I'd prefer not to write and re-write runtime on ssd.

I have been using /var/run sym-linked to /run for a couple of years or more. While possible, I have not encountered such issues. On my Slackware systems, everything is repopulated with each boot. Unlike /var/tmp, I don't believe /var/run is intended to be a persistent storage location. Additionally, rc.S scrubs /var/run: rm -f /var/run/* /var/run/*/* /var/run/*/*/*.

XDG_RUNTIME_DIR is usually set by your desktop environment. If you don't have it add it to your X startup file, or something. It should not be set in profile.d.
