I've installed Garuda previously and had no problems with my blue yeti nano, however on this install I'm finding it doesn't show up in my KDE audio settings. I don't really have any experience with PipeWire for debugging these kinds of issues, so I have no idea how to go about getting it working (or even seeing if the drivers are there). I was wondering if somebody could help me get it working.

Not 100% sure this is the correct category to post this under, but it seemed like the most relevant one.

I don't think I'll be able to help with bluetooth stuff, anyway I just wanted to mention that you probably have to reboot after an update.
And maybe check also

It's not bluetooth, "Blue" is the brand name lol. It's a USB microphone. But thanks for letting me know that little icon means a restart is recommended. I'll try that, thanks.

What is an rfk-block?

Sorry, the Blue fooled me :blush:.
I meant your bluetooth could be disabled via software.
Never mind, disregard....

Oh my god... I fixed it by unplugging and re-plugging in my microphone. Somehow all of the restarts I've done didn't do anything but that did.

I assume that the Logitech Gaming Software drivers set the microphone to a special mode to interface properly with the software (which has sound editing functions like noise gates and such) and uplugging and replugging it in reset it to it's default mode of operation. I guess it still gets power over USB even when the computer is off so it never reset itself.

Good to know for the future, or anybody else having this problem after moving from Windows.
