Are both menus (main window and editor) affected or only the main window?

Unless you can narrow this down, we aren't sure this is an Octave issue or a Qt/Neon issue. This Neon sounds like it is cutting edge, according to these posts:

https://community.kde.org/Neon/UserEdition/TechPreview

https://blog.neon.kde.org/index.php/2017/06/09/qt-5-9-packages-now-in-testing-for-kde-neon-developer-unstable-edition/

https://www.reddit.com/r/kde/comments/60ze1o/why_kde_neon_does_not_maintain_qt_package/

It looks like most are staying with Qt 5.5 or 5.6 or so and avoiding any Qt version higher than that for the time being.

What you might try is running:

mkdir mytestapp
cd mytestapp
qtcreator &

and then build a real simply GUI with some drop down menus and see if those work on your system.

When using Octave through the GUI, the window's menus don't show up when clicked. When trying to open a menu, however, by clicking or alt+letter, the window's widgets appear to loose focus.

This has been happening for some time.

Initially, I had Octave 4.0.0 and then updated it to 4.2.1 using the Ubuntu PPA (https://launchpad.net/~octave/+archive/ubuntu/stable) but this hans't solved the problem.

Apart from this, things like plot windows and the 'Save As' dialogs work properly.

My system's specs:

  • KDE Neon 5.11
  • Qt version 5.9.2
  • KDE Plasma Version 5.11.4
  • KDE Frameworks Version 5.40.0
