Programs freeze and show weird artefacts when tiling to a corner

Hello Garuda users.

I installed Garuda KDE yesterday and I have some problems/ weird glithes when tilling a window to one of the corners.

Try to disable/re-enable the compositor and see if it fixes the glitch.

Alt+Shift+F12

:point_up_2: Once to disable, wait a few seconds, then again to re-enable.

If this seems to fix the issue, I would check in System Settings -> Workspace Behavior -> Desktop Effects to see if you can do without any of the currently enabled graphical effects, to try to ease the burden on the compositor.

It works. When I disable it stops glitching. But when I turn it on returns back to glitching like usual.

I don't want to keep it turned off.

Yeah if you just turn it back on without changing anything you will be right back where you started.

How did you make out with the second part?

Another option would be just switch to Wayland.

sudo pacman -Syu plasma-wayland-session

Reboot, and toggle the session to Wayland on the login screen.

I switched to wayland but now I have a new problem


I dont want my window to go under that dock

That is unfortunately a known bug, reported here: 459755 – 5.26 Wayland windows go below Latte when "always visible" is chosen

I wouldn't hold your breath for a fix on that one, as it seems Latte-Dock is unfortunately going to seed after the lead developer stepped away from the project. I understand there is a new dock experience in the works for Dr460nized, perhaps based on the native KDE dock or perhaps something else. It is not ready yet, but when it is it won't have that bug.

In the meantime, if the bug is really bothering you you can either go back to X11 and disable some graphical effects to take the curse off the compositor, or stick with Wayland, disable Latte-Dock and set up your own dock (right-click on the desktop, add panel, customize) or install another dock.

Ah Okay, I wait for the update to the dock and then switch to Wayland.

Thank you for your help :slight_smile:
