Pamac is not running anymore no symbol and can't proceed

sorry to bother you

i make it short

after installation new updates

there is no symbol of pacman

and proceed pacman is not running

can you fix it pls


Try to change icons from the kde setting. This may happens if you change the global theme.

sorry i don't know what the prob was eventually

i only want the the symbol back in tasklist


it called software add/delete

i don't know if pacman was broken

only thing after new updates the symbol was not there anymore

i reinstall pacman

pacman -Syu pacman

and then i seach pa..... and there stands software add/delete in menue
i started it and add back to symbol-bar

only thing that doesn't work ist start the command -proceed pacman from menue in searchbar
but i thing it was also before in terminal everything is okay

You may confuse pacman with pamac.
Pamac is a gui app to handle packages.
pacman is an old game... oh, just joking. Pacman is a terminal only utility, basic in Archlinux packaging.


i mean pamac sorry


After update pamac to v.10.x at me the Tasksymbol also gone .
i get it back after edit the file pamac-tray.desktop in etc/xdg/autostart
StartupNotify i change from false to true and at notShowin i remove KDE .. after reboot the icon was there


Please post the actual output from running the command, as text. That way people might know what the issue is rather than having to guess.


They may actually have lost the tray icon after the update, I just ran into it yesterday. I ended up removing pamac-all and installing panac-aur and it's Flatpak, snap, and systray components. Then going into Autostart and adding pamac-tray.
