Manjaro 19.0.2 GNOME - Tweaks: missing tabs

hi,

I am using Linux (Manjaro) since a year now, I love it and I start getting some understanding, step by step. So far I have been using KDE.

GNOME is a first for me.
I just installed Manjaro GNOME 19.0.2 (downloaded 3 days ago with GNOME 3.34.4 on a notebook we have here and it works like a charm, beyond expectations. All apps I prefer, I got installed.

I understand further customization can be done with the gnome tweaks tool, but, except for a general tab, no other tabs are visible. Nor can I adjust its windows size either. Screenshot in attachment.

I did a clean install twice, however the issue remains and was there from start. To be complete, I don't think it's related, I did upgrade the kernel since.

Below related error lines while opening and closing apps. Some refer to KDEConnect and my email address, but the issue remains when both are removed.
Hard-/software info added as well.

Any help would be very appreciated. And if any more input is required, please let me know.

thanks,
Alex

Hello,
Make sure you update the system.
Can't conclude from your screenshot and information provided what resolution you have on screen, but try to resize the window and all the side menu should become visible. Check the scaling factor too.

You are so right. Resizing did it.
It's a 10" hidpi screen. To make a start I had the display scaled to 200%.
Just scaled the fonts to .8. It looks nice now.

I feel humbled.
Thanks!

Glad it helped. Things are not always perfectly obvious. :slight_smile:
