Nvidia Driver and gnome-control-center isssue

Hi, I successfully installed the nvidia driver according to the Clear Linux guide. (On my 1080ti I needed additionally: systemctl set-default multi-user.target during the installation, mounting the EFI partiotion to /boot and some ssh magic.)

After the nvidia installation I had to bundle-remove and bundle-add packages like steam and some games to get them running on the nvidia drivers. I also did this for the desktop / desktop-autostart bundle.

The system is working fine with the nvidia drivers, but I can not start gnome-control-center:

libGL error: No matching fbConfigs or visuals found
libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast

(gnome-control-center:7855): GLib-CRITICAL **: 15:05:15.894: g_strsplit: assertion ‘string != NULL’ failed
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Any pointers what I could do to use gnome-control-center? (My other desktop apps are all working.)

Thank you

Hi, This is a known issue right now.

There is a discussion and workaround in this GitHub issue: https://github.com/clearlinux/distribution/issues/791
