So I was trying to make android apps using kivy library in python. I was following this tutorial.

I used following code


from kivy.app import App
from kivy.uix.label import Label

class MainApp(App):
    def build(self):
        label = Label(text='Hello from Kivy',
                      size_hint=(.5, .5),
                      pos_hint={'center_x': .5, 'center_y': .5})

        return label

if __name__ == '__main__':
    app = MainApp()
    app.run()

and when i executed this code using python, it worked perfectly but, somehow it stopped my wobbly windows feature. but when i close kivy window. it wobbly windows started working again. can anyone help with this? I don't want wobbly windows to stop while doing anything.

I'm not a developer, so I can't help much here.
I just wanted to mention that your system is quite outdated (more than 2 months is a lot for a rolling release).
So, start with a

garuda-update

Apart from that, I just remember that the compositor has a flag Allow applications to block compositing that you may try unflagging. Although I think this is important for gaming.

Agree with filo, sounds like it's disabling the compositor.
