Gnome Settings segfaults when trying to set the date/time and spits out the stack trace attached. More info on the journal entries preceding it can be provided if necessary.

Strangely enough, if I forcefully reset all GNOME-related settings with dconf reset -f /org/gnome/, it works again...until I open the Date/Time section. It then segfaults until I do the dconf force-reset again.

Additional info:
* package version: 3.30.3-1
This task depends upon

Same here, can't launch the control center since I updated my timezone.

downgrading to glib2-2.58.3 (vs the newer 2.60.0) fixes the issue.

Can reproduce here, except I got stuck displaying the "About" page rather than date/time settings.

Package versions:
gnome-control-center 3.30.3-1
glib2 2.60.0-1

Downgrading to glib2 2.58.3 also fixed the problem for me.

you can also reset which panel was visited last and avoid going to the "Details" panel until this is fixed.

gsettings reset org.gnome.ControlCenter last-panel

Tracked upstream:

Isn't this going to be updated?

You can use this PKGBUILD if you want, or if you trust me (which you shouldn't) you can download this package:

Thanks, but shouldn't this package be officially updated anyway? I mean, to me this is a quite annoying bug and the fix is there..
