After last update I got an error on login screen

Hello, last night there was an update in Manjaro which I did. everything was fine. Then I restarted my PC and I was welcomed with some default login screen GUI which was telling me that there is an error loading my theme. Error was something like this: the current theme cannot be loaded, main.qml was not found.

I used breath2 theme before update (or was it breath 2021, I can’t remember), and after this happened I was able to login to desktop, and when I checked the Themes section in settings there was no breath2 theme. After researching on google I found out there is something about GIT, I mean they mentioned GIT. Then I searched in Software Center for breath2 theme, and in AUR repository I found breath2-git package. I installed it and everything went back to normal. I got back my theme, my login screen repaired, everything got back like it was before.

So my question is if I did it correct? Should I be using that theme? Or maybe install it from official manjaro repository (which I first searched for), but could not find it there. And would it break like this on the next update too? Or how to prevent this from happening?

I have one more problem and I will ask it here in order not to open new topic. While doing this, before instaling breath2-git, I tried to backup some important data that I had, from my Home folder to another Hard Drive on my System that is formated on NTFS. But I could not copy/paste files. I mean I could copy them, but when I right click somewhere on that drive there was no paste option. Drag and drop also did not work. I know it might be something about permission. Also last update might not broke this, since I don’t remember when this problem happened, could be way before it, so I can’t tell, because I didn’t use that Drive since installing Manjaro 2 weeks ago. I will post some screenshots of permission tabs:

There is a migration of theme packages going on. See here: Testers needed: Manjaro KDE massive cleanup/rename


No, you should use Breath.

Ok, thanks for replay. This is what I ended up with. I uninstalled breath2-git. Installed plasma5-themes-breath. And this is what settings I used.


So, is it correct now? And final question, is there a way to make this selected area Dark, like I had it before?

Thanks, and sorry for this.

This color scheme is moved to Breath Classic package, it’s not it repos yet so for now you can download and install it manually from colors/BreathClassic.colors · classic · Artwork / themes / Breath Theme · GitLab

Thanks a lot man, it did the trick. Now the only thing that remains is why I can’t copy files to my second hard drive xD
