thank you

Again, :relaxed: search in this forum, it is solved.

I did it, and it says I have to search in the settings, but it is not on the keyboard settings or configurations..that's why I am asking here.

and now I know it is like enable this is to right click Dock → Configure Latte... → Enable autostart during startup

thank you
