I am using Garuda Linux already 3 months now and I am very happy with it.
It's also my first Linux Distribution.
Yesterday I wanted to install a software and was asked for my password.
I typed the password the first time and got the message:
"Authentication failure, please try again."
I thought that I maybe misspelled it so I tried it again and slowly.
I got the same message.
I restarted my computer and tried it again and it worked.
After a few minutes I wanted to install another software and ended up with the same issue.
It worked only after a restart.
What are the options I can do?
Hey, I'm not the only one experiencing this Especially 2. happens at times, haven't found any cause or correlation yet, it just happens. Actually I send my device to sleep rarely so I didnt mind it until now, unlocking via changing TTY, logging and and typing "loginctl unlock-session insert number" (or unlock-sessions for every session) is a nice workaround. No need to reboot every time
I understand that, and you're doing the right thing. That's how Nico got the experience & knowledge he has obtained to-date. And I'll betcha tomorrow and next week he'll have gained even more. And so will you!
The only "problem" I recall happening to me since adopting Arch in 2013, was networkmanager several years back. By then I knew enough that rolling it back until the bugfix was upped was a no-brainer (it helps to read the Arch homepage & forums daily). And it was much easier to "fix" in Arch than when bug-prone networkmanager went bad in Debian Testing.
But nowadays I don't have the heavy workload in Linux like prior years. I generally run a hand-installed vanilla Arch + Plasma and don't need much in the way of bells-n-whistles-n-applications like heavier-tasked users, so my simpler systems tend to be pretty stable.
And I've learned not to sweat the small stuff, unlike my scurrilous pal @mandog. ()
It seems you are using two keyboard layouts, but not configured properly.
Your system-wide layout on Xorg is English (confirm in cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/00-keyboard.conf), on system is English (/etc/locale.conf), on TTY/console is German (/etc/vconsole.conf) and on KDE is German (LayoutList=de configured in System Settings Keyboard layout).
Since you are using both en and de, you should configure this on all places, together with a switch combination.
When Plasma desktop some times crash/restart, the active layout may not reset as expected. It maybe a bug or a feature, but you don't want this to happen, or you should have a way to reset or switch your current keyboard layout. You should know that computer AI is not Human Intelligent (yet).
