Hi Teimuraz, nice to hear from you.

Moving from KDE5 to Plasma 5 is a big jump. You probably have some old
configuration files around that are conflicting. Have you tried making
a new user, and logging in as that user?

If things work better from there, then try logging out, and from the
terminal (control+alt+f2) do `mv ~/.kde ~/.kde-old` then `mv ~/.config
~/.config-old` and finally, `mv ~/.local ~/.local-old`. Then login
again. If everything is working properly, you can move old configs
back if you need them, file by file.

Remember, config files are just text, so if you think they are
suspicious, compare the newly created ones with the old ones. It's
interesting, and will teach you something about how your system runs.

Write us back if you need help with any of this.
