solution : just reinstall optimus-manager


it works fine

IDK about multi monitor settings, but I use Nvidia X-Server EInstellungen.

pacman -Qi nvidia-settings 
Name                     : nvidia-settings
Version                  : 495.46-1
Beschreibung             : Tool for configuring the NVIDIA graphics driver
garuda-update
[sudo] Passwort für sgs:

is enough, no sudo need in front.

And if you do not post your inxi -Faz we do not know why you nvidia 470XX is displayed.

Ok. just use Nvidea Settings in System-Settings or from launcher.

Nvidia-settings can't open form GUI or Terminal
nvidia-settings in terminal

If you use optimus-manager, I see this was affected by the python update yesterday and should be reinstalled.
