Strange issues in general (discussion and help):


I tried looking this up already.

Basically: the theme with all the colors is quite the sensory overload issue for me. One might even say the colors are "offensive", being they're so loud and "burn my eyes to look at" if that makes sense.

I would like to use the Breeze icons, but many of them don't even show up properly, a few not at all in the menu.

Example: When Konsole is open, I see the icon. When it is closed and sitting in the dock, it's the blank page icon. After removing it from the dock, restarting the system, the issue appears to go away, but there's still no icon in the applications menu for it.

Also, on first login, the wallpaper is set to a smaller size and right clicking outside of where the wallpaper shows doesn't launch the expected menu. I have to change my resolution to something else then back again for it to look correct.

What have others done to overcome these issues?

EDIT: Added the inix output, cannot comment any more today, says I reached a limit or something.

If inxi -Faz not works in your terminal konsole use live ISO and post it as text.

Do you use KDE in VM?

I know that Konsole specifically has a custom icon in dr460nized, you can

rm .local/share/applications/org.kde.konsole.desktop

to restore the default one. Not sure which other icons you're talking about, but surprisingly I've found Beautyline more comprehensive than Breeze.

That is a really strange problem with the screen resolution, I am not sure how to troubleshoot that... hopefully someone else has an idea


Thanks it worked but is there any ways to make garuda do this when icon theme is changed?
if not, then why use custom icon which causes trouble in the first place?

Mmm... pork chops... :cut_of_meat:
