N00b question about dr460nized more qestions

Hello Garuda users.

ok as requested, here would have been the output thing from garuda-inxi, but I apparently cannot upload a text document, so not sure how to do that.

After suggestions from others, I now have this working on hardware. For the avoidance of confusion, this is Garuda Dr460nized KDE.

I jumped through a few hoops to get it working and look as I want, so all good.

Couple of minor things left, which I shall guess are down to the apps, not the OS. Obviously, any assistance would be welcome :slight_smile:

  1. In Brave (don't hate me) it usurps the system title bar by default. I have to go into Brave settings, then un-tick that, then re-enable the same tick-box, then it works as it should.

  2. I have custom windows 'decorations' set so the buttons in the title-bar are more easily recognisable to me. All apps respect that except Thunderbird which insists on using the Dr460nized default decorations. Maybe it's a flatpak or something? No idea.

For the garuda-inxi there's no text file required, it's a simple copy-paste of the output from Terminal/Konsole.

For 1-, which package manager did you use to install it? Flatpak, snap, appimage, pacman, etc...

For 2-, well if you installed Thunderbird from a flatpak package, you're basically screwed. Flatpaks, snaps and appimages, pretty much all don't respect something from the UI, they are not intended to specifically use all UI you want, but rather what the packager packaged in the package. Not all UI, but some of it cannot be accessed by the package. Maybe it works fine for some apps, but many don't respect the Theme 100%.

If there is no important reason to install it from flatpak, I highly suggest you trash it and install the Arch package (paru -S thunderbird-bin) v115.1.1.


Or use garuda-assistant, Systeminfos.


Okay, first thanks to those who helped thus far!

Last remaining thing right now. All the 'window decorations' in every window are themed for the Dragon except Brave, which insists on its own decorations. I want it 'perfect'! Maybe it's coming in as some kind of flatpak or other pre-built thing that doesn't see local preferences...?

Below is the full output of the diag thing so that I don't get shouted at :slight_smile:

Bugger. Updating to say that now with Firefox (or strictly speaking, Garuda's version here which is "FireDragon"), I still lose the system title-bar on maximise so have no window decorations at all, unless I manually drag it down off the top - then I get a 'normal' un-maximised window with decorations as they should be.

Maybe it's just bloody browsers that don't stick to the rules?!

For Brave, can you copy the output of paru -Ss brave.

I have an application that lose the Menu Bar (not Title Bar in my case) on maximize and I never found why or how to bring it back. These issues are typical on Plasma when you use GTK-based applications, like Inkscape, Firefox-based, Remmina, Brave... there are a lot unfortunately.
If you open up ~/.config/kwinrc file and look for section [Windows], you could set the following BorderlessMaximizedWindows=false. I suggest to logout and relogin after that change, it will apply to all windows of all apps.

If that does not bring back the Title Bar I think there are other things to look for which I don't remember at the moment.



Well I decided to be brave and try out Brave. :smiley: I found something. IF your GTK Theme settings are set right on your system globally, then go in Brave Settings and click on Use GTK.

It will change from this:


To this:


Even if your GTK settings aren't set right, try it out anyway.

Curiously, Use QT does not use the Dr460nized Window Decorations.


You absolute star - that works perfectly!
