Garuda kde black screen in vmware when minimizing windows

So basically what the title says. When I run Garuda KDE in vmware and I maximize a window and then try to minimize it. My screen just turns black and it doesn't respond to anything.

Garuda Gnome does work though, so I think it has something to do with kde specifically.

This guy seemed to have a similar issue, but they don't really come to any conclusion here:

If anyone happens to have an idea about how to fix this, I would love to know.

Again :slight_smile:


Post your terminal/konsole in- and output as text (no pictures) from:

inxi -Faz

Our distro is optimized for performance on real hardware. Installing in virtual machines is not recommended as it might result in a bad experience! (eg. setup assistant not working)


And welcome :slight_smile:
