Desktop Environment being weird

Hey, I need some help
My LXQT-Kwin is with a strange issue in which it is almost completely irresponsive. Like, the features of the environment don't seem to work at all, but I can still open stuff from the dock, yet ofc with some graphical issues
Also the cairo-dock when it's on it renders the bottom part of the screen black while showing only itself.
No matter how many times I log in/out or even reboot, the issue persists

I've had the same problem before sometimes, but then updating the system worked it out, but last time I had to recover from a snapshot and this time recovering seems a bit of a waste of time I guess.
As a side note tho, the cinnamon environment is working perfectly so I guess it's really an lxqt problem

Any help is much appreciated : 3

Do it, update, copy the files that will be updated and post it as text.

is not a bad idea :slight_smile:


Well, recovering do get the issue solved but, as it comes back, perharps not the problem that causes it

But I'll do it as you say, just give me some time cause I'm working on something rn ~

Alrighty here we go
