gnome-control-center wont start, when I try to start from the terminal I am presented with:

 Failed to register: Timeout was reached

I have tried reinstalling gnome-control-center via pacman. This has made no changes.

I enabled the scale-monitor-framebuffer experimental-feature from dconf, dissabling this has made no differance.

I run gnome 3.28 on wayland from the arch repository.

My journalctl -b | grep gnome-control-center is:

running killall gnome-control-center and after start the gnome-control-center again works to me
