Missing settings on Garuda Linux Dragonized Edition

Hello Garuda users.

I can't open the hardwareconfiguration menu, it showes up in the search bar, but when I open it, it just takes me to the start page of the Settings Program. Also some settings I see on Youtube Videos/Forum Posts just aren't there for me...

Here is the Video: 2023-02-23 13-26-00.mkv - VEED

Welcome to Garuda.

To prevent searching for an issue that might not be one at all, I'd like to ask what you would like to configure.

You have a pending restart since you updated.

Also you are still using latte-dock, and that has been causing people issues recently since around the new KDE version and new versions of KDE related packages.
You should have been prompted to migrate away from using latte-dock. I highly suggest you do if you are having issues.
More info about the migration here: Dr460nized migration info | Garuda Linux wiki


Well i migrated now as said in the Wiki and I still can't open the Hardwareconfiguration to update my Drivers...

I can take a look at that later and see I reproduce the issue.
It's easy to see what you're trying to open from your video.


Seems like using it from the menu isn't working? I've been testing around on my machines and came across the same issue when trying to launch Hardware Configuration from the Application Launcher.
Try going through Garuda Settings Manager and then click on Hardware Configuration within the Garuda Settings Manager window. That still seemed to work.


Yes the issue can be reproduced.
Without trying the CLI option, the only way to access the hardware config is true the solution described by Kayo.

I'll see what to do with this, fortunately the workaround isn't that bad, probably 3 more clicks.
