Rock star launcher won't start after first time exit

Hi there. I have been using Garuda for a week now, and I'm having a blast. the only game I play sometimes is RDR2. So I went to install it. Downloaded Lutris, afterwords Rock Star, and then game itself. I must say was shocked that game worked right away, no missing labs nothing, nada.
Because I was busy doing other stuff, right after I knew game start with no problem, I quit the game. But on the second day, Launcher wouldn't start from Lutris. I googled everything similar to my issue, but nothing helped me. I thought I must have done something, or installed something, because I was trying to see what's in Garuda, before that I have been using Debian based Linux only. After all night of trying to figure out, I gave up, and reinstalled Garuda, and installed the game again, and it worked. But I was so confused why I had this issue to begin with, I knew i have done no changes to Linux to have such an issue. So immediately after exited the game, and tried to start it again, and what do you know the game won't start.
The game is not running, that is obvious. Tried killing all Wine process. Tried everything I could find on Google. Reinstalling lutris, reinstalling rock star launcher, installing other version of rock star launcher. Nothing seems to help. But as I said before, the game works, but launcher won't start after first exit of the game. Rock star launcher starts from EXE file, if I try it starting without Lutris, but I'm unable to type in my log and pass.

It will be worth checking on the Lutris forums - if this is a known issue someone there will likely have posted about it.

As I have stated before, I have done everything, at least every solution posted. Some are missing some sort of lib. But I am missing nothing, game works, after closing it for the first time, it won't start again. Not the game itself, but the launcher.

I assume this also includes rebooting.

If you have tried everything then the launcher is broken. Maybe ask RockStar?

What's different between systems where it worked (assuming it did, you haven't mentioned that), and how you're running it now?

Have you tried installing this package?

Have you tried without gamemode?

It is not broken, as I have stated before, game did start, but launcher won't start after first exit.

The difference is, that in Garuda, I didn't have to install all the missing libs ect. It worked right away.

Have you tried installing this package?
Yes.

Have you tried without gamemode?
Yes.

I don't think i'm missing anything,.as I said before, game did start. only thing that makes this issue appear is the exit of the game. if I will reinstall linux, and install game again, it will work, till i exit it again.
