Without it, you will not receive any help from the Garuda team or your topic is likely to be closed without notice.

Before you open a new help request, read relevant sections of the Arch and Garuda wiki.
Thoroughly search your issue and any error messages in the forum and on the web.

Report everything you have already attempted to solve your problem.

It's not the first time I see this issue recently in gnome.
A few weeks I remember there was a fix for other stuff that might play a role.
If you don't mind (it shouldn't affect other stuff) you could try
downgrade garuda-setup-assistant
and go to the version before the current.
