symlinks look like folders

guys, need your help, can’t defeat a bug (?) for a couple of days in a recent manjaro (23.0.4-231015).
symlinks look like folders on desktop so you can’t distinguish them from actual folders

supposed behaviour (“backup” is a folder):

if i switch desktop folder location to home/other and then back - symlinks gain correct apperance. but it will work untill restart

Welcome to the forum. It looks like a similar issue has been raised on the KDE bugtracking system. You may want to join that discussion and share your discovery that you can temporarily regain the correct appearance.


thanks for the link, i feel i’ve read all forums possible
