tarting my pc a few times, my kde suddenly doesnt work correctly anymore, the panel disappears, and latte dock also doesnt work anymore. SDDM cant access a config file and cant continue or something after logging out... I dont know what is happening, i pressed CTRL + ALT + T to open an terminal window and start firefox, (which worked perfectly fine) and im getting this error when starting programs:
firefox/any program:
Icon theme "gnome" not found.
Icon theme "gnome" not found. and then just quits.
System: Garuda Linux Dr4gonized KDE version.

If you include terminal outputs in your post please use the proper output format in your post.

Using "~" 3 times above and "~" 3 times below the text block will provide a readable, raw look.

Did you search in forum?
IIRC it is solved.

Sorry, cant stem to find anything similair on the forums, am I missing something?


Refresh your mirrors.

System is up-to-date?

Yes, my system is up-to-date

Latte dock fixed by killall latte-dock and deleting the lattedockrc file from the .config folder, but the kde panel is still not working

Please, no pictures from the terminal.

LANG=C latte-dock


As I Stated, yes, my system is up-to-date, but I don't know how to make a screenshot because kde is broken and last time I unset the shortcut of spectacle. That's why I was showing a picture of the terminal. Also, latte-dock is fixed

Ohhh, its a smartphone pic :slight_smile: ?

Was in the same situation. I decided to restore everything from the snapshot. I did not understand the reason. I follow the topic.

Yeah, smartphone picture. Also, is there a sokution to the kde panel? Im going to bed now. Im going to react tommorow

restore from /etc/skel or with Garuda-Assistent.


Thanks! Turns out, my default shell switched from fish to bash. Opening Garuda Assistant and resetting all configs + going back bash - fish fixed it!
