LibreOffice tooltip appearing at a random position in the screen
Version 22.214.171.124 with kf5 VCL plug-in, openSUSE Leap 15.1.
When LibreOffice is in second plane or even minimized, tooltips pop-up randomly in my screen, as you can see in the attached screenshot I took while browsing in firefox with LibreOffice Writer minimized in the taskbar (the tooltip is for the "insert special characters" button, in Spanish).
This does not happen with the GTK plug-in, nor with any other application, only with LibreOffice and only with the kf5 plug-in. It seems LibreOffice keep sending signals to the desktop even when it is not in focus.
I failed to find what may trigger the behavior. The tooltips just appear at random times and at random positions.
Let's ping the KDE people to see what they can do.
I haven't experienced this so far, can you please retest whether this still happens with a current daily build, as available at ?
You can install that in parallel as described at .
If it still happens, it would be great if you could find out a bit more about when this happens (how to trigger the behaviour), since it's very hard to analyse an issue you cannot reproduce.
Also, have you seen a similar behaviour for any other application than LibreOffice as well?
@ Michael Weghorn,
> can you please retest whether this still happens with a current daily build
Yes, it still happens with 7.0 alpha. At least one of the times it happened immediately after Writer did the autorecovery operation, but I don't know if it was a coincidence.
> have you seen a similar behaviour for any other application than LibreOffice as well?
No, only LibreOffice and only with kf5 plug-in.
OK, thanks. In case you find out more, please mention it here. Otherwise, let's see if anybody else might have another idea...
Just to be sure: Is this in a Plasma session or is another desktop environment in use? Is this running on X11 or Wayland?

Plasma 5.12.8, X11
Could you please try to reproduce it with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/ ?
I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' if the bug is still present in the latest version.
It seems the bug is gone in Version 126.96.36.199. I kept it open for a couple of hours now and did not see the problem.
