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.
