I recently did a fresh install of Manjaro on my laptop. I am using Plasma and the Git version of Latte-dock.
Every time I turn on the computer, Latte does not show up. If I hover the mouse over the region where Latte should appear and click the right button of the mouse, Latte’s menu shows up and I can change the Layout. When I do it, Latte shows up.
However, all sound buttons of the laptop (mute, volume up/down, and microphone mute) do not work. In order to make them work, I have to log out and log in again. Most of the times, doing so solves both problems, i.e., Latte shows up on the correct layout and the sound buttons do work;
but sometimes I have to repeat the procedure, that is, to log out and log in three or four times until everything works.
I tried to remove Latte and install the version existent in the Official Repositories, but the problem persists. I don’t know if the problem is related to Latte-dock or if there is something wrong with my installation (wrong order of starting up processes, for example) and the weird behaviour of Latte and the sound buttons are just consequence of it.
This is very annoying and inconvenient, because it takes much more time to start the laptop than it would take if everything was working fine.
Any clue on what might be causing these problems?
Here is some basic information about my system:
