Frequent Latte Dock Crashes


I'm experiencing frequent latte dock crashes. It happens quite frequently and seemingly randomly. Today I ran it in console, and captured some crash output below. Is anyone else having frequent issues? I let it slide for a while using the nohup launch, and now i don't know where the problem started so probably no use in going back using a snapshot or playing with pacman to uninstall files in recent log. Any tips appreciated! :slight_smile:

Additional crash info from KDE Crash Handler. I don't have some packages, so it's telling me it's not useful, I don't know enough about latte dock to troubleshoot this myself, and it looks like the maintainer is no longer with the project? :frowning:

Quickly like that I would suggest to try out latte-dock from whatever repo BUT "Garuda", latte-dock from "Garuda" repo and latte-dock-git from whatever repo.

If you're lucky, at least one of them would work.
Alternatively you can always submit a bug report at under the lattedock application.


Latte dock is out of development and for this no longer compatible with acutely KDE Plasma releases

It's nice to look at, nice to have, but unnecessary if you use your computer productively.
If it goes away, M$ 11 will look even more like KDE.

And as always, life goes on and on until it's over.


Since the development of latte-dock ended, can we officially substistute it with cairo-dock? Just watched a video of Distrotube that talks about eol of latte and a way to substitute it with cairo, which could be a valid option.

Development didn't end entirely. Main developer left but KDE forked and adopted the project. Garuda's pretty dock isn't going anywhere.


aaaaaaaand i realize after switching from latte dock to stock plasma launcher panels that i'm a total latte fangirl.

gonna try installing from other repos now... :sweat_smile:

Welcome, first girl in the Garuda Linux Forum :slight_smile:

IIRC :smiley:

I swear i've seen one other from the czech republic maybe?


I trust you, sorry, I don't check :wink:
Everything is possible, and we are open in every respect. :blush:

Nah, not at all! Gotta pay more attention :yum:

Same here, I just can't live without it anymore. It's just so convenient and full of features (my favorite example: dragging windows by just dragging the top bar!) :innocent:


Yes I think it's "Maynne". Not tagging her.

BTW i cannot live without latte-dock as well.
