Screen is black - all looks like night-setup: well this drives me nuts - how to undo this - how to get rid of this behaviour

hi there

my screen is black - every thing i have - each single program is black black black - ie. like a night-view on the Mobipe phone or on the navigation set in the car.-

well this drives me nuts - how to undo this - how to get rid of this behaviour.

how to switch back to normal !? Background: i have set the desktop to a black (nightly) design - now i want to set back to normal.
how to do that!?

First thing you will need to do is update. 6.6.10 is not updated. Please start there and see what happens.

I’m just a little worried it takes 30+ minutes to run updates.

hi there you both
well sorry _ i did the update
now all is fine - but wait: the “night”-view still exists - it is ( i guess ) based on some configurations i made years ago. I have configured the desktop somehow that all looks so “nightly”?

see the KDE -setup here: https://pastebin.com/kyQhRUBP

seemore background infos:

any idea?

I’d suggest you write down (including all details) any configurations and changes you make.
Then you know exactly what has been done. And any of them will be easy to undo (if they cause issues) or redo (e.g. for a new install).
And those notes would help us help you, too. :smile:

System Settings > Appearance

Change Global theme to something that doesn’t have “Dark” in its name. There are previews of each one shown.

You can also check Plasma Theme and Colors and change them if you want, but start with Global Theme.

Then right-click on desktop, seslect “Configure Desktop and Wallpaper” and change your wallpaper if you want.
