Can someone please help me with this. I have even tried reinstall KDE connect but it still crashes.

It could be this bug.
Fixed 3 weeks ago, but relevant release still not released.
Fixed In: 22.04


So It says its fixed how to resolve it where is the solution. Or is it that there will be a new release and the bug will be fixed on its own?

When KDE will release kdeconnect version 22.4 and when it will arrive in arch repo, it will be fixed for us.
Assuming this is the same bug. But it has many duplicates, so occurred to many people...


ok thanks for helping I'll wait for the release any ETA about that ?

KDE has predefined schedules.
I'm afraid that if kdeconnect is part of KDE Gear, this could be 21-Apr-22. But I haven't checked in details.

I have often found that it is an individual plugin that may crash KDE Connect. If you selectively disable the extra features you may find out if one of them is responsible for the crashes.


Tried a different kernel, such as the LTS?

I haven't modified any settings I'm using it as default. What exactly you want me to disable?

I have 23 different settings that can be enabled/disabled in the KDE Connect settings. Test disabling each one at a time.

No I haven't tried yet. Should I ? I mean changing kernel solves the issue but i don't want any other problems coming in if I change it. What do you suggest ?

How better to address this as a solution, then?

Look, if you wish to live a happy and fulfilled life using Linux as your operating system, then you MUST understand this: Linux is a moving target. And...

You have to be willing to move with it.

First; Linux itself is being continually updated; kernel, system, userspace, applications, etc. I mean, it is continuous.
Second; there's no such thing as "Linux." What is contained within that one word--Linux--seems to have a different meaning for every individual. Truthfully, it's the kernel and only that, but that's a topic for another (lifetime) day. For now, let's just say you run Garuda Linux. And that's more than just the kernel.
Third; you are running Garuda Linux. Garuda's package base is Arch's and it uses the Arch Linux Package Management system (alpm), and "Pacman" as its manager.
Fourth; Arch Linux uses a rolling release model...

I'm too old and too tired to give you much more than encouragement to explore your new Operating System, Garuda Linux; it's base system, structure, applications, etc. This you must all do on your own, in order to gain your own understanding of it all.

As my wife says; "Be bold, and mighty forces will come to your aid."

Happy Trails
