How did you install virtual box? You should install it from setup assistant.


from Octopi

Which packages did you install from octopi? Also to know how to set up virtual box correctly, see

Also, if you don't wanna read, you should simply reinstall from Garuda setup assistant.


I installed it again from setup assistant nothing changed

Than read the manual.


ok, I'll try it

Hi did you find a solution?

I got the exact same problem. I've never seen this before. After more research look like a problem with KDE and Wayland.

Hmm, I have installed virtual box from Pamac and the problem is from force blur effects

In advance try Kwin script debug console & Add a new window rule for Virtual box

Try disabling Kwin scripts
Force blur option

It works in Dr460nized edition that I'm using

Please again enable those effects after using Virtual Box to enhance looks

  1. do not trust google.

here's the solution
disable Blur effect from system Settings
system Settings > Workspace Behavior > Desktop Effects > Blur
thanks, @virat_17 for the hint
@DerpFox check this solution


you're right
How Could I miss that :sweat_smile:?


Ya, I can insert image directly here and I'm not allowed to da that bcz I'm new user and it's my own personal account and not a random link

Sorry about that, stupid Google services works like that and I don't have much time to do stuffs

We like terminal in and out puts as text, pictures in technical forums are useless, they can't be copy and paste, and they are not searchable by the forum search engine, so we stop new users to post pictures.

Whether this is your account or not is irrelevant.

Is it safe because it is your account?

Hey, I mean no offense to you, but in general.

But I don't trust a nickname that contains hackers any more than I trust anyone else who sends me a google link :smiley:



On GUI follow these Steps

Search for Kwin Script

Step 1 :
