Can't install NVIDIA drivers because "python-pyxdg and python-xdg are in conflict"

I reinstalled Garuda Linux recently since I wanted the new updated version of Garuda Linux since mine had some bugs, now when I go to install my Nvidia drivers I get this.

I'm unable to remove them using the command you've given me.

Post in- and output as text.

Not all DE have the same apps, so remove only what in conflict.
Remember if you needed it later! :slight_smile:

How do I remove the conflict?

try first, then post dependencies or remove with

```
sudo pacman -Rns "dependenciesApp"
```

You do not read other thread.

I am a little bit tired, so again,

sudo pacman -Rns python-xdg

I get the same error when I type the command in.

I copied and pasted what you typed and this is what it says.

Now remove oversteer

So the application you are trying to install pulls a dependency which conflicts with a dependency of another package.
Uninstall oversteer and try again.

Ok, I was unable to remove Oversteer and the dependency, but now I get an error involving Timeshift

I maybe know how to fix this but I'm not sure, I'll try and see if I can fix this new problem.

You use ext4?

or

I don't know.

I'll try that.

We can't help if you do not post the in- and output from terminal.

Only you know what happen on your PC.

Sorry, I meant I was able to remove Oversteer.
