System update reconfigured Qtile

Just updated my system, and after rebooting whenever I login I get the Qtile bar at the bottom of the screen (was at the top), but what looks like the login manager doesn’t go away until I use to spawn a program. My default Garuda wallpaper doesn’t show up, and the login won’t disappear until I spawn a terminal. While I can see the workspaces numbered, they aren’t sorted by the Greek letters (it’s all Arabic numerals as usual) any longer. As a result, I can’t click on the Garuda logo on the bar to launch jgmenu either. I did install litecli-git from the AUR after doing the system update (and before rebooting). I don’t THINK that should’ve caused this, but just including it for full disclosure. I can boot into an old snapshot, and everything works like normal. I’m just trying to figure out what/how everything got messed up. There was a snapshot mentioning some things about adwaita (not sure why since I’m not running Gnome), but I did not explicitly upgrade that and build a snapshot. So that was must’ve been done by the system upgrade.

Hi, I am having the exact same issue. Black background, bar at bottom that says “default config” and some numbers for desktops. I don’t have the login window. Still scratching my head on how to fix. I’m sticking to rolling back the snapshot, but I have a lot of packages on the update and don’t know how to narrow down what the cause is.

Maybe @RohitSingh can help?
