I’m on Garuda Linux. Yesterday all of the sudden all Plasma panels and the desktop disappeared (the wallpaper is all black and right clicking on it doesn’t do anything). I wasn’t tinkering with anything I had Firefox, 2 KCalcs, Kate, Steam and Discord opened. The KRunner or CTRL+ALT+T shortcut to launch terminal both still work. Usually rebooting was fixing this issue but this time it persists even after rebooting. I’ve created new user and on the new user everything works fine. I’ve tried resetting the configuration via Garuda Assistant and run below commands, but all I got were errors.
startplasma-x11 gives this error:
$DISPLAY is not set or cannot connect to the X server.
sudo startplasma-x11 returned:
QStandardPaths: XDG_RUNTIME_DIR not set, defaulting to '/tmp/runtime-root' $DISPLAY is not set or cannot connect to the X server.
startplasma-wayland gives this error:
Error: could not determine $DISPLAY. Error: Can not contact kdeinit5! org.kde.startup: "kdeinit5_shutdown" () exited with code 255 startplasma-wayland: Shutting down... startplasmacompositor: Shutting down... startplasmacompositor: Done.
sudo startplasma-wayland returned:
QStandardPaths: XDG_RUNTIME_DIR not set, defaulting to '/tmp/runtime-root' startplasmacompositor: Could not start D-Bus. Can you call qdbus?
And “qdbus org.kde.KWin /KWin reconfigure” returned:
Service 'org.kde.KWin' does not exist.
I’ve also tried running the oldest snapshot I could but it didn’t solve the issue. Changing themes in Setting also don’t fix the issue.
