Not recognized any android (different phones and tablets)

What does lsusb show?

On the same PC?

I'm pretty certain things should work with the default Garuda installation, but if you have customised things then you might want to read through Android - ArchWiki

Do you have 'android-file-transfer' 'android-tools' 'android-udev' 'gvfs' 'gvfs-mtp' installed?
A reboot is required after installation.

OP is running KDE so gvfs shouldn't be necessary:

IIRC mtp mounting is transparent in KDE. I was also trying to find my phone storage until I saw a special entry in Dolphin I hadn't noticed.
You may have missed it in Dolphin (or other file manager) environment as well. The only requirement is to confirm your Android is giving "Share with MTP" permission choice, after having connected with USB cable. That's all.

If your ports are USB 3.1 try this:

Create /etc/modprobe.d/usb.conf:

sudo touch /etc/modprobe.d/usb.conf

Open /etc/modprobe.d/usb.conf in the kate text editor, then copy/paste the following:

options usbcore use_both_schemes=y

Save the conf file modifications with Kate, then reboot.
