╭─[email protected] in ~ took 1s

so i booted into my pc today and everything was fine until discord crashed when opening which has become a frequent thing but that's not what my problem is,

my problem is that the toolbar/application tray is not appearing neither does pressing the super user key, i tried restarting multiple times and tried the fallback kernel then i tried "pacman -Syuu" i it updated and restarted it but nothing happened

im at a loss i don't know how to fix this

Hi there, welcome!
If you mean the latte dock on the bottom and the panel on top, open Krunner (normally shortcuts could be alt+space or alt+F2) and launch Garuda Assistant. From there, reset default settings for latte (flag). Maybe flag also something else if you want.
Then, to logoff or reboot you can right-click on the desktop and select Leave.
If for whatever reason Krunner doesn't start, launch garuda-assistant from the terminal (disregard some error messages there).
Last option, right-click on desktop, add widget and add a menu widget: from there you'll be able to launch Garuda Assistant.

PS: please put
before and after your inxi block, for readability

Is the command used to downgrade. (uu) Is that really what you want to use? Where did you learn it?
