How can I get the title bar on maximized apps, and other starter questions

Hi, I just installed Garuda and am running into some slight issues.

1.) The biggest one is that if I maximize an app, its title bar vanishes. And with that, the ability to minimize and resize said app.

I installed the Dragonized Version, but redid the layout to a more traditional windows desktop (I feel this is the reason for my woes).

Thus far, this is creating issues with apps like web browsers, Libre Office, etc.

2.) Onionshare is a brilliant file sharing app for securely sharing your files with family. However the app doesn't launch for me.

3.) There is a widget I like using called System Load. It basically gives you a brief view of your cpu & memory usage. However it doesn't seem to work in Garuda for me. Does anyone know how to get it to work?

4.) In the Application Menu, there used to be quick shortcuts to the restart, shutdown, and log out. Now there's only log out available as an option. I have no idea what made the other options disappear. Is there a wayt o get them back?

  1. Edit the file ~/.config/kwinrc
    find BorderlessMaximizedWindows=true
    set it to BorderlessMaximizedWindows=false
    log out/in.

I can't get that setting to stick. I've tried editing it as a root user, but everytime I restart, it's back to being set as true.

Where is your inxi -Faz?

Use Kate to edit and never use root in your ~/ home folder.

Next, one problem, one topic. It's best for the forum search function.

What do you mean, it's right up there :slight_smile:

I tried several ways, including Kate to edit that file. I even launched Kate as root to edit kwinrc, but I can't get it to save those settings.

Edit: Also I feel kind of uncomfortable making multiple posts. Your reasoning for doing so makes sense, but I just feel as if I would be spamming the forum.

Me too :smiley:

How can I tell Arch to save files in the home partition, instead of using the root one? EDIT: Sorry if I am using a really bad language to describe this problem, but I've been into Linux since like two weeks or so. Please, be patient. UPDATE: This is the image of the content inside /etc/fastab: This is obtained by the command:

3 Ways to Save Linux Files - wikiHow

Type a space and enter the name of the file you want to create. If you wanted to save the results to a file called filelist, the command would look like ls -a > filelist. If you're appending the output to an existing file, you'd use ls -a >> filename. 4

First search the web, wiki, garuda wiki.

Second, we do not support of every software in the linux world ( Onionshare, widget I System Load).

You do not tell what are you doing before that happen.

And whether you have made the effort to look for solutions yourself.
It is sobering to hear from those seeking help that he had already found it on the net and read, but it did not help.
