Qtile is broken after the last update

Hello! I would like any advice to resolve a qtile issue I've recently encountered.
So recently I do a -Syu and then the qtile wm is not workin properly for instance I can't see any floating masagge and when I try to open a program it does't shows up is like it's minimized.

I searched about this issue but I don't know python language.

i really apreciate any advice you can provide to me.

Also I have installed garuda qtile about 6 months ago and now the garuda qtile settings is broken when I do a system update i have to sudo pacman -Syuu --ignore=garudat-qtilesettings because otherwise it doesn't work.

Best Regards.

The comand qtile check shows me this message.

Hello!

I just installed Garuda Linux and my Qtile has the same problems as Udy. :confused:

I ran "qtile check" just like Udy and I'm getting the exact same error messages.

I am not 100% sure what "inxi -Faz" does for now because I am still new to Linux, but here is what i got from it.

I hope this helps. :slight_smile:

When Qtile updated to 0.18.1 it breaks some backward compatibility. it's fixed in latest config. Copy latest config from /etc/skel/.config/qtile/config.py to ~/.config/qtile/config.py or compare the changes with meld and merge necessary changes.

If anyone is looking for the changes:

  1. look at the imports
  2. look at floating_layout
