After many time of using garuda , it have an inconvenient on getting a slow performance . It freezes sometimes . All Gui are stucked.
Can you have a suggestion for me ?

We have a very detailed tutorial to troubleshoot performance issues.

It is long and requires a lot of dedication, but this type of issues cannot be troubleshoted easily.

Try disabling the PulseAudio server. You already have PipeWire running as a server daemon, and PipeWire should be able to handle whatever Pulse modules you need.
