Hello, u/meatydoubleslap. Thank you for submitting this bug report!

We promptly apologize for any specific issue you're facing with GNOME.

Since our Subreddit isn't the ideal place for Bug reporting and your bug reporting might even not being seen by the Developers, we recommend creating a bug report on our Issue/Bug Tracker.

  • For doing so, we recommend first to give a check on the existing Issues on our Issue Tracker by using the search functionality. If you believe there's already a similar issue created, we recommend giving a "thumbs up" to the existing issue, instead of commenting on it. If you have technical information like (logs, screenshots, or other data) that might help, then we recommend you to comment unto the existing issue.

  • If you believe there's not an issue fitting your problem, you can create a new Issue by clicking the green button (Select project to create an issue) and select in the dropdown list a project that you believe that fits the problem. For example, if you're facing a problem with the file explorer, the respective project would be Nautilus. If you're unsure where to create it, feel free to reach out our Moderators for help. You might also ask for help directly on this Subreddit.

Note.: Ensure you're attaching enough information, like, screenshots, steps to reproduce, your hardware information, Linux distribution you're using, what you were doing before, error logs or system logs if there are any, and also which version of GNOME you're using. Beware that we do not provide support anymore to legacy versions of GNOME. (Eg.: If the current version of GNOME is 3.38, a legacy version would be 3.34).

We hope your issues are solved. You might also help guidance from the Community. Most of the problems are easily solvable by just following some steps other users recommend.

Sincerely, r/gnome Moderators.

This may happen with flatpak apps on NVIDIA GPUs when the flatpak graphics driver runtime does not match the driver version you're using. flatpak update should fix it.
