Since some time (a couple of weeks) I noticed a weird display problem on client side decoration on GTK apps like Pamac.
When I choose a GTK theme in Plasma’s settings, all looks correct:
When I relogg the session, buttons look and animation is slightly different:
At first I thought it has something to do with GTK theme, but no, no matter what theme I choose, even the default breeze, the issue persists.
So I checked auroare titlebar’s themes and the issue also persist on various ones. Finally, I installed breeze fork which works completely different and the look is not based on svg/svgz files, still the same… Well, not exactly the same but broken in similar way.
Let me show you what happens when I set GTK theme to Breath Dark and set aurorae to Breeze. At first, it looks correct, but with new session, this is what I see:
Breath, Breeze, those should be defaults and work well, but something is off.
I tried solution from this post:
Namely, in tty:
rm -f .cache/*.kcache rm -f .cache/kwin/qmlcache/* rm -f .cache/ksycoca5_* sync exit
I have no idea where those strange buttons are from and why the setting isn’t persistent but is lost during session restart?
Worth mentioning is, that Breeze aurorae theme seems to be completely broken and instead the usual buttons, I get this:
This bug appear when I installed Breeze fork from the AUR. Uninstalling it didn’t fix it, so I brought the theme back.
