Gnome Settings App Removed After Uninstalling Cheese

I removed the Cheese camera app, but it also removed the settings app. When I reinstall Gnome-Control-Center it gives me vanilla gnome and not the Garuda version. How can I get the settings app back?

If it is not broken by GNOME 40 with copy from /ets/skel/

After doing this it still does not look like garuda gnome, the dock is only shown in the windows changing mode.

Cheese is a dependency of GNOME's system settings iirc so thats surprising at all :eyes:
For the rest (dont know how much I linked this today even though the link is also given while updating):

I would suggest to pay more attention to a) the output given while updating and b) the transaction summary of Pamac. In the end you are the system administrator and control a big portion of what happens to the system. :cowboy_hat_face:

All is not lost.

When you removed cheese, the package manager told you what dependencies it would also remove. It's not that way in all distributions, but it is in Arch.

You can, however, recompile gnome-control-center without cheese or cheese as an optional dependency, if you dislike it that much. You'll have to keep doing it every time gnome-control-center is upgraded, unfortunately.

This procedure works best on fixed releases.

Its always worth looking at the AUR for eventually useful packages - like this one :smiley:

A post was merged into an existing topic: Off Topic Chit Chat - (Silliness factor 5)

Yeah, I guess I will just stay with it, even though my desktop doesn't have a webcam.

Ah, so I am now in gnome 3.38, but I was in 40, right?

Actually GNOME 40 went into testing not long ago, so you are probably on 3.38.x (as the inxi also mentions) :eyes:
