Hope I don’t have to try removing garuda-dr460nized !!

sudo pacman -Rdd sweet-theme-full-git
sudo pacman -Rdd sweet-theme-full-git
sudo pacman -S plasma5-themes-sweet-full-git
sudo garuda-update

Thank you.


BTW, next time post the output from garuda-inxi, please.


could we get the solution reformated, right now it looks like it is recommending to remove the sweet-theme-full-git package AND remove the garuda-update package

Be careful, you also need to install the garuda themes because otherwise the system and its configuration will break.

The solution is in post #2
I fix it. :slight_smile:


For me, there is no point in his text to remove update.
remove sweet…
install plasma…
then update

The way you read it, it should also mean install update.

Imagine, if Microsoft / Apple would stop users updating their computers with bunch of critical security updates ONLY because their Theme was newer than their servers!


I try to think about M$ and the bitten fruit as rarely as possible.
Thread is solved. Just closed.
