Lost Minimize, Maximize, and Close buttons after Slack Oct 31st Updates (ktown KDE)


Just updated to the Oct 31st set of fixes and now when I open applications in KDE, there is no longer any Maximize, Minimize, or Close buttons in the top right of the window.

Fully up to date Slackware 64-bit 14.1, but running AlienBOB's 4.14.3 KDE.

Ideas.

Cheers.

Have you checked your configuration under "System Settings" then "Workspace Appearance"?

Looking for what specifically.

It's the standard Air desktop theme and Oxygen decorations.

I don't see any options to modify/include/exclude these buttons.

Cheers.

The window dressing (minimize, close etc) is provided by the KDE window manager, kwin. Sounds like that one is not working anymore, was mentioned in another thread as well. Probably the kde-workspace package needs a recompile.

WOW, this is actually much worse than I thought.

Not only is the "window dressing" missing, but there is no keyboard input available. Pasting via the mouse works, but only if the current cursor location is correct, as it can't be changed by either the keyboard or a mouse click.

It makes KDE completely unusable.

Cheers.

This was talked about in another thread, but it may not have been obvious from the title.
I also had this problem but it went away after I did this link

ln -s /usr/lib64/libxcb-sync.so.1 /usr/lib64/libxcb-sync.so.0

Hope this helps
Don

Thanks for the pointer.

I'd seen that thread originally, but thought it wasn't related, as it really didn't seem to match this issue.

Cheers.
