It's working over here. What is the output of pacman -Sii konsole ?

So we are in fact using the same version. Did you already try launching konsole via another terminal, eg. Alacritty?
Also, try reinstalling the package konsole.


Yes, I have tried launching it via Termius, Yakuake and Alacritty.
As you have requested, I reinstalling it using the command garuda-update konsole

Reinstalling the package worked, Thanks :star_struck:

Glad to hear! The executable must've been messed up somehow as restoring the original state helped :eyes:
