How do you move the application launcher from the top left to bottom left

basically what title says. i use dragonized sweetified plasma

Go to kde settings(may be that can be also written as simply 'setting' ) from the application launcher all the customization of kde can be done from there

For moving the application menu right click on the panel and click on "enter edit mode " or "edit" you will find an option to do it....:wink:

If something got messed up then you can reset through the flags available in garuda assistance ( flags would be named like alacritty , fish ...) . Click on the check box of whatever you have mistakenly messed up and click on apply .

I already configured Latte to do that so you have 2 options. You can copy my config file to ~/.config/latte with a name that is different compared to existing files or modify your own. If you copy mine, click the top bar, choose Configure Latte, then Layouts Editor, click the new file and Switch. Keep in mind that there are a few more customizations on my file :wink:

or you can edit an existing file. Click the top bar, Configure Latte, Layouts Editor and duplicate the existing configuration. Close Latte and open the new file with a text editor. Location is ~/.config/latte.

  • Cut the part that starts with [Containments][12][Applets][40] until [Containments][12][Applets][40] (dont include the applets-40 part). Paste it above the line [Containments][1][ConfigDialog].
  • Change all the [Containments][12] to [Containments][1] in the part you pasted.
  • Under [Containments][1][General], change appletOrder=2 to appletOrder=40;2
  • Under [Containments][12][General], remove 40; in appletOrder so it starts with 98.
