Gui colors, animation not working

All issues related to Garuda Linux and its assistance
Hi friend, Gui colors, animation not working

Please help me.

Welcome :slight_smile:
Please have a look at

And add missing Information so we can troubleshoot :slight_smile:


Welcome aboard. That said @dr460nf1r3 is right more information would be helpful.

From your image though and your statement Compositor is off. Find a blank spot on your desktop and start typing compositor. click on it in KRunner once you see it. You should see a large box on the right, click to reenable. You may have to toggle the allow applications to block compositing checkbox to get the apply button to ungray so you can press it after reenabling your compositor.


10 posts were split to a new topic: Problems and questions with KDE compositor

That kind of sounds like kernel issue. However, failing hardware will cause exactly that type of behavior as well.


Btw, did you try turning on compositor?


This and possibly several others probably suffer from the chaotic-aur repo shortage.


@petsam if you're going to move my post to a separate topic at least link to it here, since they are the same issue and have nothing to do with the Chaotic server issue. Thanbks

Problems and questions with KDE compositor

@AlienProber just FYI, the Garuda mods, devs, and admins will move, recategorize, modify thread titles, unlist, delete individual posts (or entire threads), and discipline members of forum when and as we see fit.

We do not require your preapproval or permission to perform any of these tasks on our forum. When you develop your own project and have your own forum feel free to administrate that forum howsoever you may choose.

Until then, if you wish to participate on our forum perhaps it's time you learned to accept the way the admins manage the Garuda forum.

Your criticisms regarding the the way we manage the Garuda forum are getting rather old. If you feel the manner in which we oversee our forum is not in keeping with your tastes, then by all means feel free to participate elsewhere. There are alternatives such as Reddit (or others) that discuss Garuda that are not overseen by the Garuda team if you dislike our management style here that much.

I think I can speak for the entire Garuda management team when I say, your ongoing criticisms of our decisions are not appreciated by the team. Perhaps it's time you either accept the way we run our forum or simply find another venue more suited to your tastes.

Please do not PM myself (or other mods) regarding this issue as generally your PM's are not that appreciated by the other admins either.


I just went through my post and your claims aren't even remotely true.

be the change you want to see in the world

:upside_down_face: :+1: :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Really, you are never critical of the way the admins here manage the Garuda forum.

This quote is from your profile page:

It's more than a bit tacky to close threads that there is nothing wrong with.

You are in a constant state of denial with a severe persecution complex by my estimation.

I was also just informed by another mod that you are currently suspended from the EndeavourOS forum for being critical towards one of the EOS forum moderators.

So, according to you, you've never done anything wrong at any Linux forum. So then, all your warnings and suspensions from at least three Linux forums I'm aware of were all simply cases of misplaced blame.

@AlienProber, I would highly advise you remove the statement I quoted from your profile page because if a mod has to do it the EOS forum is not going to be the only forum you'll currently be suspended from. Please do not respond further on this thread or any other threads with more denials about your innocence of my accusations because you are only going to be ensuring another suspension if this continues.

Drop it, or you'll be looking for another forum to post your never ending drivel (if any others will even have you).


WOW you found ONE instance from my signature. That just screams constantly doesn't it, NOT. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

I edited your profile, as you refused to do so as I requested.

You're suspended until Feb 1st, 2021, I warned you.
