After upgrading my Logitech MX Master didn’t worked anymore. According to this reddit post this is due to changes in bluez. Therefore the mouse cannot connect to the computer. Possible solution could be to downgrade bluez.
After last Upgrade I expiriance in gnome desktop problems with my task bar. Icons seems to be duplicated and hidden, what the taskbar expands with black symbols. You can see here: At the black part of the bar, I can click and the icons will react, but I cant see them:
I already tried to delete ~/.config/dconf/user .
That reset my desktop but the error appears again. If I start a new session, reboot, logout etc everything is normal. But some time it happens again.
That is since the upgrade.
Updated from Pamac. Went over well. Had to switch from 5.13 to 5.10 in GRUB because I lose sound with 5.13, but that is an old issue and there’s already a thread for it (unsolved, though, maybe it would be better to use a newer kernel, but I never got round to cracking this issue).
I use Plasma and I think my scroll bars got a bit bigger, too, as some have already mentioned.
I tried this and restarted, but it didn’t change the scroll bars:
I think I can get used to the big scroll bars, but I’d be grateful if anybody had another piece of advice.
Are there any risks to running rm -rf ~/.cache/*? What happens if the cache is cleared?
The DFP-2 here is my HDMI port, and the DFP 0-1 seem to be the USB-C outputs. The X server actually does launch, but only on the external screen, if its connected. The internal screen seems to be handled by iGPU, although I am not 100% sure about that one:

This gives me the weird situation which is not at all intended by the xorg configs - the internal screen works on iGPU (and only after I log in to plasma!), and the external is handled by the dGPU. This is super laggy and inefficient.
How do I fix all this nonsense and get back to my cozy optimus-manager setup where only 1 GPU is active at a time?
I’ve tried kernels 5.13 and 5.15, and both drivers 470 and 495.
One thing I’ve noticed after installing kernel 5.15 from this update is that my load averages increase from their normal 0-3 to as much as 30. I’ve raised this issue in the kernel forum in case anyone else needs to follow this problem.
I have a NAS I use regularly mounted as a normal drive in my Computer.
After update I could not copy or move any files from or to my NAS. I could copy/move empty folders and edit existing data; but no files… strange!
The reason was obviously that I still had Kernel 4.19 running. Now I Installed 5.10 and everything is fine again.
Luckily I found this Topic in the forum
I have 2 problems.
1 - when updating kernel 5.15, the computer does not respond when restarting or shutting down, the screen is black. If you turn off the screen but not the cpu when you turn off. the same is not the case with older kernels.
I tried kde and cinnamon and the same thing happens in both cases.
2 - when the cpu starts up, the plasma desktop (x11) is loaded without a wallpaper and the desktop functions do not respond, but the menu and taskbar do. I did the same with wayland and the desktop loads normally.
