NixOS newbie (but long-time Linux user). First time posting here, so please let me know what if any additional information might be helpful!
After upgrading from 19.03 to 19.09 the other night, I noticed numerous duplicate entries in the KDE System Settings application. In particular:
- The Breeze and Breeze Dark (but not Oxygen) Plasma desktop themes are duplicated in “Look and Feel”.
- The Breeze and Plastik (but not Oxygen) KWin decorations are duplicated in “Window Decorations”.
- Most, but not all, services listed in “Background Services” are duplicated.
This doesn’t seem to be causing any trouble (selecting a duplicate Plasma theme or Kwin decoration results in the correct style being applied, services all appear to work fine), but definitely looks odd, and makes me worried that I may be missing a bigger issue.
Things I’ve tried:
- Searching through
/run/current-systemto see if there were any duplicate symlinks (there are none that I can find).
~/.cache(no change, though i’d been having some issue with Akonadi that cleared up after doing this).
~/.config/startupconfigfiles, which seemed to include a lot of duplicative paths pointing into the Nix store (no change, and the file was regenerated with the duplicate paths still there).
Interestingly, there’s a passing comment in GitHub from a few years ago that references what appears to be the same issue after upgrading KDE, but no resolution or follow-up about this particular issue occurred then, and the author never brought it back up.
Has anyone else run into this issue with KDE on NixOS? If so, do you know what causes it, and were you able to resolve it?
