I have contacted KDE devs. But I got no help from them, I think they are busy in handling things. whatever it is I don't have much problem.

I also read the

But I can't find the desktop layout section or any ways to enable it.
I don't know anything is messed I also tried to reset configs through Garuda-Assistat

I see you restored a snapshot from March, i think you'd better update now.
If that doesn't help, I'd try creating a new user, to see if this issue lays somewhere in your home.


Or should I compare with guest user

Everything works in guest_user

You can try, for sure.
But with the new user then you could gradually move your stuff.
And don't forget garuda-update, you're also in a partial upgrade status.


delete (rename)



Done, after I rebooted works fine, you saved my time
THANKS @filo


Yes, although a logoff logon might be enough i think


I don't know who've sent this message, but you should know your SysAdmin very well!!
It is... YOU!! :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:


Off course, System should belive me only if I tell that via configs or super user access. While resetting configs comes to rescue

Something I messed up while creating chroot jails that messed my config I think

:rofl: This reminds me of when you are first setting up a box and you run a sudo command before you've added yourself to the sudoers file, it tells you something like "So-and-so is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported."

...:face_with_raised_eyebrow: Reported to who?! It's my computer! :joy:


Incidents will be reported to the person in my avatar! :wink:
