Window Controls look weird

I recently update my system via pacman -Syu and after restarting my windows didn't wobble anymore and when in full screen mode the three former colory dots are just an x a square and a down looking triangle. further when in window mode there is a light blue dot on the upper left side but at least the colory dots are there.
I know i could fix it just by resetting the configs in garuda assisten but id just like to restore this specific part and i don't know which one it is. If someone knows why this happens in general I'd also be keen to know

Open System Settings, go to Desktop Effects, activate "Wobbly Windows"

System Settings, Appearence, Windows Decorations, set "Sweet-Dark"

Since you're there... make sure that:
Global Theme = Sweetified Plasma
Application Style = kvantum-dark
Gnoe/GTK Application Style = Sweet-Dark
Plasma Style = Sweet
Colors = Sweetified
Icons = BeautyLine

Every now and then I change these settings, but I think this should be the default.


Thanks this restored it to 99% of how it was but the weird light blue dot is still there. And do you know why these setting just change sometimes? and if there is a way to set this as the standard?

I keep telling people about the risks of acid flashbacks from dropping too much blue microdot acid, (but nobody ever listens to us old guys).


This is standard: the "On all desktops" button.
You can remove it in Windows Decorations, Titlebar Buttons, drang it down.

This has never happened to me. Only for the GTK Application Style actually (a few times) and I don't remember many threads on this topic.
You are the only one who can administer your system, updates, configurations, etc.
Maybe it's due to the fact that there have been several plasma updates lately (but that's user configurations).
I wouldn't spend time on it, it's just a few clicks (and really shouldn't happen often).

Ok thanks, It happend one time before when my whole desktop nuked itself but thanks to timeshift and the garuda assistant reset all i got it all back. Should I make an Update on it when it happens again or is it to niche?

As far as I'm concerned, what matters is always the reproducibility of the problem.
Here we have solved the effect.
Working on the causes in my opinion is always more difficult (but obviously more important).
I would suggest you to make a new topic if you still experience a similar "cause" ("my whole desktop nuked itself").

this time that luckly didnt happen but i had a topic on that
