Lost windows buttons after uninstalling latte dock

Hello Garuda community,

I recently switched over to linux and chose garuda's kde desktop to do it. Out of the box latte dock was crashing regularly. Forcing latte dock to restart would get it going again, but ultimately seems pointless as latte dock is no longer receiving support, and does not add any features i can't live without. Ultimately I opted to uninstall late dock and use KDE's default panel. Overall this has made for a much smoother garuda experience, for me. The problem is now i don't have the windows buttons plasmold for latte dock and have lost windows buttons in many maximized windows. is there a way to make windows buttons work in maximized windows with the default KDE panel?

Thank you, Aaron

Hi there, welcome to the forum.
Try using the following kWin setting in $HOME/.config/kwinrc


That fixed it. Thank you very much for your quick effective response. I am loving Garuda Linux so far. Thank you all for your hard work.
