I have no idea what *either* of you are talking about. I'm talking about
the panel at the bottom of the screen, which contains the application
menu, pager for virtual desktops, launchers, task manager (running
programs) and on the far right, the system tray.
I've tried to click everywhere including in between things, and I don't
see "Taskbar Manager Settings" anywhere. I do see "TASK Manager
Settings", but disabling tooltips there does not affect the application
menu, the pager, the launchers, or the system tray.
I should have said "Task Manager Settings" not "Taskbar Manager
I see this option if I right click on any "task", which I take to refer to
the rectangles containing icons describing activities
in various virtual desktops, eg (in my case) bash, knode, firefox, etc.
I assume the term "taskbar" refers to this portion of the panel.
If I go to Task Manager Settings, and switch off the option "Show tooltips"
I no longer see tooltips for the tasks (five at the moment in my case)
but I still see tooltips for all the other icons/widgets in the panel,
eg the clock.
Maybe I should have said so at the start, but this is on F23 KDE/Plasma
5 (with all patches applied).
