Latte Dock/Window Decoration Issue

I am seeing an issue where the window buttons are being passed to latte dock but not disappearing at the top of a window like they normally do.


Here is my settings info as requested.

That is quite strange. Have you tried resetting the Latte config in the Garuda Assistant?

If you mean the maximized Windows, then this should be borderless.


Yes I have. That did not fix anything

How do I edit this in the GUI? I edited it by command line and I love command line but I was also fully want to understand the Garuda KDE GUI and am not sure where to edit KWIN settings. Thank you so much for the help guys!

Right-click on the dock -> Configure Latte
Please be aware that there is currently a bug in the windows buttons applet after upgrading KDE to 5.24, so that they appear in a differet (breeze) style. You'll find several topics about it in the forum today.


Thank you so much filo. I did just find it in the settings. I really appreciate all of the help. Still learning my way around the system :wink:
