Issues with Garuda Dr460nized desktop look

Hello, I'm new to Garuda and so far I love it !
But I'm here because I have an issue :slight_smile:

I guess I did play around a little too much and now my settings are kind of messed up.
I did try to reset all settings with Garuda assistant but it did not help.
As you can see in the screenshot, the buttons on the Konsole window for example looks generic and not the 3 dots, also look at the latte-dock, everything seems to be cramped in the corner and I can't even read the text. Is there anything I can do other than fresh re-install?

Hi there, welcome.
Your garuda-inxi is missing in the post...
Did you logoff/logon after resetting with Garuda Assistant?

Oups, sorry for that. Yeah I did a reboot to be sure. Here is the garuda-inxi

Wow, I think you played around a lot with it! :slight_smile:
You could try to set back these settings (System Settings, Appearence):

Global Theme = Sweetified Plasma
Windows Decorations = Sweet-Dark
Application Style = kvantum-dark
Gnome/GTK Application Style = Sweet-Dark
Plasma Style = Sweet
Colors = Sweetified
Icons = BeautyLine

I'm going a bit by heart here and copying from previous posts, since I'm not on the system at the moment.
Probably you should also change something else, but most likely you'll see it or remember it during the other updates...

That did the trick for all the theme related issues ! Thanks a lot !!!
I still have that issue in the latte-dock, not sure what to do for that one.
It's only happening when the focused window is on the primary screen (where also indeed the latte-dock is)

When I edit the latte-dock layout, I'm getting this

Check if this helps...

That's a different problem anyway, maybe you'd better create a new topic with all the needed information.
Try also to give a look at this one:


That did the trick. I removed the top bar from my 3rd screen (I don't need it anyway) and it looks like it did a reset and went back to normal !
Thanks again for all the help !
