KDIALOG -warning : "Window switch instation is broken, resources missing. Let know your distro."

So after switching between opened windows & programs I used to use ALT+TAB to scroll them. There are a several plugins and each one provide nice different way for switching. And everything was working just great until now. Currently I receive similar warning notification on top right corner of display (at least I have done my best to translate it into english). How to fix it? Any idea?

Bying honest I even don't have an idea where to look for help regarding that particular problem.

Work fine here. ALt + Tab

First update your system, please.
Reboot and try again.

System updated.
However problem still occurs.
It says " Window switch instation is broken, resources missing. Let know your distro."

Currently I would like from system settings - windows - task switcher to see behavior of Present Windows Clone

But I'm not able because each time keys combination is pressed then notification is returned.

Any idea how to fix that?

This is called an empty bump.
Provide further information if you wish to elevate your post.
Add more posts to your thread when you have some useful information to provide others.
Until then your empty posts are of little usefulness and are unwanted in forums.

But I don't have nothing more about it. Here's all I can provide. From my point of view kdialog is just broken and because of that I have been looking for a help. Why you call it empty while I provided everything you wanted , description + screens?
This what is called empty answer , isn't it?

It might be a matter of theme v/s task switcher.
Maybe you could try changing theme.
I found only old stuff searching on the internet.
By-the-way, the correct text to search seems to be (I don't speak Polish, I just did some tries until I found something :slight_smile: ):
KDE The Window Switcher installation is broken, resources are missing

Your post has no new information.


Again, works fine here.

filo - thank you my friend for that link! Yeap, indeed that's even now actual (kwin_x11 --replace).
You are right - in my case it was all about task switcher. There are new on my list , which after system upgrade caused that problem. So in a such situatnion we have to go back to official switcher, atl+f2 paste kwin_x11 --replace Enter , and that's it. Back to normal behavior.

Regarding text translation I'm really impressed ! :partying_face: Problem with PL lang is that from EN->PL it's easy convert, but from PL->EN it isn't so obvious while we are able to say it on few different way and meening in the same time will match .. So basically you are really close to speak fluently soon in Polish :wink:

One more time thank you!


I must admit that I have many Polish colleagues. Although we speak English in international teams, many times e-mail threads are a melting pot, and I can somehow recognize Polish :blush:
