Love the Garuda layout, but find the multiple starts to get Latte Desktop going very tiresome... I have been thinking of installing Budgie and deinstalling the Latte Desktop... Has anyone don that so far? Anything I need to be aware of?
You can't switch Latte for Budgie. Budgie is a desktop environment, KDE is a desktop environment. Latte is a dock, not a desktop.
Budgie isn't a provided within a pre-configured Garuda edition, so you can make your own mind up about whether to use it or not.
I have installed budgie before.
to install budgie type
sudo pacman -S budgie-desktop gnome-control-center
