Latte dock glitch

Let me add some information about Latte debugging procedures:

  1. latte-dock -d
    //produces full debugging output in command prompt

  2. latte-dock -d --with-window
    //opens a debug window for each dock/panel providing metrics and states in a window

  3. latte-dock -d --graphics
    //reveals all latte mechanism in visual

  4. latte-dock --default-layout
    //forces Latte to load the default latte layout in startup

  5. For Garuda layout my proposal for distro level is at: psifidotos: Latte Dock v0.10~ | Templates, templates...
    // following the [5] proposal the Garuda will be always accessible to users to readd it from Layouts Editor through New... button

  6. latte-dock -h
    // in order to reveal more command line options


BTW if there is someone from Garuda Distro team that would like some direct contact with me for guidance, solutions etc.... feel free to ping me.

Garuda has done a very risky but important step to use Latte Dock git version so I would like this to succeed, at least by exposing some latte internal information to make users and packagers life easier.

Official bug report channel is at: Log in to KDE Bugtracking System


Thats pretty nice to hear! :slight_smile:

You probably mean 2) ? :thinking:
I have exported & updated the layout following the instructions. Do you accept pull requests for official presets?


I mean [1]. There is not a need to add the Garuda Layout in the official Latte repo. My understanding is that you can add it in your latte rpm package at path "/usr/share/plasma/shells/" and when Latte starts it will automatically find it to be able to use from Layouts Editor -> New... button


Thanks for clarification.

Just added it to this location rather than keeping it in /etc/skel :slight_smile:


You probably need to add it in both locations. You first approach will added it as a normal first layout to use for the user and the second location will add it in layout templates and the user can readd the original Garuda layout as many times wants to...


Sorry but it gonna be a difficult childbirth :smiley:

  1. open your Plasma System Monitor -> Processes -> locate latte-dock and close it forcefully
  2. After [1] and sure that latte is not running run in command prompt: latte-dock --default-layout make sure to write it correctly because the fourth command previously in your screenshot was missing a "-" slash.

Please post the output of the commands using these: "~~~" and maybe even like:

Output 1

The pics were really bad :sweat_smile:


Sorry for the pictures. :disappointed_relieved:

But it's labour of love! :heart:


Ok so it's working now
Thank you for the guidance @dr460nf1r3 @psifidotos

1 - killed the process from terminal with

sudo kill latte-dock

2 - restored to default with

latte-dock --default-layout

3 - Restored the Garuda Layout:

Left Click --> Layouts --> Garuda

Seems latest update fixed this :slight_smile:
Thank you again!

Hello, I uninstall latte-dock-git rebooted and then installed it again, then it worked perfectly fine and the screen was full again :smiley:
