Window decorations reloaded


I've been seeing WINDOW DECORATIONS RELOADED lately when starting gvim. This doesn't happen when running vim.

I've searched the best I could to find out what is causing this. Does anyone know how to fix this?

I'm running slackware-64 -current with Plasma.

Thanks.

Interesting. I tried to replicate your error. I'm running an up to date Slackware64-current with Plasma. I did not see that message starting gvim.

I see the same when launching Firefox from the command line, but I don't notice any problems. Slackware64 -current, Plasma, last updated to Jan 11 updates with kernel 5.10.6.

same message when starting the lo suite

When I try to start lowriter, I get this message. I don't know why, and I am not aware that I have changed anything. I get the same message when I run localc. I am running slackware current and have applied all the updates except slackpkg 15. I need lowriter,so I have downloaded the appImage, which works. If anyone knows how I can solve this issue, I would be really happy to hear from them

Smile WINDOW DECORATIONS RELOADED resolved with lowriter

Well I don't quite know what happened there. I have just applied the changes from the changelog yesterday evening (15th Feb) and now, so far, everything works as it should. Very strange, but I'm glad it works again. So my issue is resolved but I don't know how or why :-/
