How to get Waydroid working

If you follow these steps, you should have Waydroid working fine.

Remember, Waydroid only works on wayland!

  • Install waydroid-image and all it’s dependencies.
  • Run pkexec setup-waydroid.
  • You should now be able to launch Waydroid. The first launch takes a while.
How to use Kodi RPI on Manjaro ARM

If anyone wants to test kodi on the rpi, install these packages:

sudo pacman -S kodi-rpi kodi-rpi-dev kodi-rpi-eventclients kodi-rpi-tools-texturepacker linux-rpi4 xf86-video-fbdev

Have it set up is to boot straight in to kodi

This means the kodi.service file need to replace whatever login manager you have installled. In my case I would:

sudo systemctl disable lightdm.service
sudo systemctl enable kodi.service

They recommend removing custom configs in config.txt. We ran into an issue if a value was set with gpu_mem=.

My config.txt with a bit of overclocking:

#gpu_mem=64     #disable this
initramfs initramfs-linux.img followkernel

#enable sound

#enable vc4
#max_framebuffers=2    #disable cause kodi uses more

Some notes:

The default user will be kodi
kodi home directory will be /var/lib/kodi
So put test video in /var/lib/kodi/Videos so you can get to it
after setting up the video directory in kodi.

Testers needed on arm-testing branch

We are in need of testers for our arm-testing and arm-unstable branches.
So if you are adventurous and want newer software quicker, we would love for you to help us test out the new packages in arm-testing branch.

All you have to do to switch to this branch is:

  • Run this command to switch branch: sudo pacman-mirrors -aS testing && sudo pacman -Syyu. This will generate a new mirrorlist for you, sync your databases with the new mirror and update your system using the arm-testing branch.

We would then love for you to give feedback in our update posts in #arm:testing-updates. That way we can better find and fix bugs, before they hit arm-stable branch. Thank you!

  • No issue, everything went smoothly
  • Yes there was an issue. I was able to resolve it myself.(Please post your solution)
  • Yes i am currently experiencing an issue due to the update. (Please post about it)

Known Issues and Solutions

This is a wiki post, please edit it when you find a solution to an issue you encountered

New Breath theme not applying correctly

With the update to the new Breath theme, a migration package tries to apply the new theme correctly.
However this is not getting done for Plasma’s Lockscreen and the SDDM theme.
So please go through your settings after updating to make sure the themes are correctly applied.
Fix: manjaro-system should take care of this for you.

Plasma Mobile switch to ModemManager

With the PlaMo Gear 21.12 release, Plasma Mobile is now using ModemManager as the telephony stack. So in order to use SIM capabilities, you need to switch from using oFono to ModemManager.
Fix: Run sudo systemctl disable --now ofono ofonoctl && sudo systemctl enable --now ModemManager. You might have to reboot your phone for Plasma Mobile to pick up this change.

Waydroid container cannot access internet

Cause: new default waydroid configuration issue, tracked here.

Short-term Solution:

  1. create /etc/nftables.d/waydroid.nft with the following contents:
#!/usr/sbin/nft -f
table inet filter {
    chain input {
        iifname "waydroid0" accept comment "Allow incoming network traffic from WayDroid"
    chain forward {
        iifname "waydroid0" accept comment "Allow outgoing network traffic from WayDroid"
        ct state {established, related} counter accept comment "accept established connections"
  1. any time you launch waydroid, run the following after it has started:
echo "ip route add default via" |sudo waydroid shell
Old Issues

Plasma Mobile has does not launch after update
This was caused by an error in kwin 5.23.2 which only affects installs based on openGLES (qt5-es2).
Fix: Update to kwin 5.23.2-1.2 or above.

No ethernet on rk3399 boards
A recent kernel regression has resulted in built in ethernet on rk3399 based boards, such as RockPro64 and Rock Pi 4’s, no longer works on kernel 5.14. This is an upstream issue that has not been fixed yet.
Fix: Update to linux-5.14.1-2 or newer.

Vivaldi no longer working
The issue is present in all chrome based browser (except Chromium that got a patch for it).
It’s an issue with systemd-resolved and has been reported in the Arch Linux Bug Tracker.
Needs to be fixed by Vivaldi updates in the future.
Fix: Vivaldi 4.1.2369.21 fixed this issue.

Modemmanager-pp dependency issue
modemmanager-pp 1.16.10 depends on libqmi-pp and libmbim-pp, but they are no longer found in the repo.
Fixed by updated to modemmanager-pp 1.18rc1+2+ga20f2c05-2.

systemd-hook unsuccesful after pacman 6 update
After the pacman 6 update, updates will create this message in the post-transation hooks part:

Running the command manually works and there has been no issues reported as the result of this. This will either get fixed at some point in Pacman or SystemD.
Should be fixed with pacman-6.0.0-4

Keyring issues
If you have some gpg keyring issues, you can run sudo systemctl start pacman-init.service which will regenerate your keyring. Will take a few minutes to complete.
Should be fixed with manjaro-system-20210716-1

Plasma Mobile no longer boots
The current update to qt5-es2-base results in Plasma Mobile no longer booting, showing a screen that says to run a loginctl command to login.
Fixed by updating to qt5-es2-base-5.15.2+kde+r199-3.1 and qt5-es2-declarative-5.15.2+kde+r28-3.1.

Kwin crashes on startup on Pinebook Pro
This seems to be related to Mesa 20.3 and the Pinebook Pro support in kernel 5.10, as this does not seem to happen on other devices.
It does not impact 3d performance as far as I can tell. Just the OpenGL compositing in Kwin.
Fixed with mesa 20.3.2-2.

My VPN no longer connects
OpenVPN 2.5.0 changed how VPN routes work.
Workaround is to downgrade to previous version (2.4.9):

sudo pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/openvpn-2.4.9*

DP Alt Mode no longer works on Pinebook Pro
This is a known issue, the hacky patch we had to enable this has broken in recent kernels.
@tsys and Ayufan are looking into it.
As a workaround you can install linux-pinebookpro again.
FIXED with linux-5.9.12-4 and linux-rc-5.10-rc7-2 and above.

brcm-patchram-plus and pi-blueooth are in conflict
See this post for workaround:
[ARM Testing Update] 2020-11-16 - Bitwarden, Mesa-Git, Pacman and kernels - #10 by Darksky

Plasma Mobile Keyboard
The plasma mobile onscreen keyboard does not work with QT 5.15.0.
This is fixed by updating to kwin 5.19.3-1.1.

PinePhone uboot
This update to the PinePhone Uboot package (2020.04-2), changed how the DTS is loaded from the kernel, since the Kernel DTS for the Pinephone also changed. When doing this update on the PinePhone images from Alpha5 and back, please make this change to the /boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf before rebooting:

  • sun50i-a64-pinephone.dtb to sun50i-a64-pinephone-1.2.dtb

Manual interventions:
The nss and zn_poly packages prior to version 3.51.1-1 and version 0.9.2-2 respectively, were missing a soname link each. This has been fixed in 3.51.1-1 and 0.9.2-2 of these packages, so the upgrade will need to overwrite the untracked files created by ldconfig. If you get any of these errors

nss: /usr/lib/p11-kit-trust.so exists in filesystem
zn_poly: /usr/lib/libzn_poly-0.9.so  exists in filesystem

when updating, use

pacman -Syu --overwrite /usr/lib/p11-kit-trust.so --overwrite /usr/lib/libzn_poly-0.9.so

to perform the upgrade.

Device stopped booting after Uboot update
The uboot update included a change to the extlinux.conf file. This change will be incompatible with the old 1 partition layout of some devices.
So if you are updating installs made with images 20.02.1 or older, you need to apply this fix before rebooting!
To fix this please edit your /boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf file and add 2 periods in front of each first slash, like so:

KERNEL ../Image
FDT ../dtbs/ #etc.
APPEND initrd=../initramfs-linux.img #etc.

Save the file and reboot.

is the reason an usb bug not solved with the last kernel ?



Odroid N2 not tested for the moment

Question :

How to find an old package ? I’m looking for samba / smb 4.15.1-1 or 4.15.2-2


I posted here the reason, something go wrong with samba since 2 months…

On manjaro pinephone (phosh).
Looks like a few packages were missed:

$ pacman -Qoq /usr/lib/python3.9

community confy 0.6.1-1 [installed]
community libgpiod 1.6.2-1 [installed]
community portfolio-file-manager 0.9.12+4+gccc3c76-1 [installed]
community powersupply 0.5.0-1 [installed]

Checked branch compare, none of these packages were rebuilt for unstable either.

It should be in the stable threads too.


I’ll look into these today.


I added some more packages, including maui-shell!

User philip created a snapshot of branch 'arm-unstable' to 'arm-testing'.

 - arm-testing community aarch64:  40 new and 39 removed package(s)
 - arm-testing core aarch64:  6 new and 6 removed package(s)
 - arm-testing extra aarch64:  20 new and 18 removed package(s)
 - arm-testing kde-unstable aarch64:  43 new and 42 removed package(s)

Thanks. Just rebuilt these.

The libcec-rpi package is in the dependencies of kodi-rpi. Shouldn’t it be in optional ? Because switching (fkms/kms) between libcec-rpi-fkms and libcec-rpi is impossible then.

I think kodi-rpi only works with one of them, so switching will render it useless either way.

Yes, but using fkms and installing the good package libcec-rpi-fkms is not possible due to breakage of dependencies.

Likely because kodi-rpi does not work with fkms?

It works, during the long bug with kms and rpi. I used fkms (HW’s acceleration ok) .

I will take a look. All of these packages are arch-arm. I believe what has happened is libcec-rpi-fkms was added because of kms breaking and people had to go to fkms but they are using my patch as of last week to make kms work.

I have recompiled kodi and put in the testing and unstable branches with this change. Also libcec-rpi-fkms was upgraded today for python 3.10 so you need to install it also.

Kodi and the 2 libcec-rpi* packages all are upgraded for python 3.10 in the testing and unstable branches now but the stable branch is still on the old versions.

kodi-rpi 19.3-4
kodi-rpi-dev 19.3-4
kodi-rpi-eventclients 19.3-4
kodi-rpi-tools-texturepacker 19.3-4

Thanks for pointing this out. There was some other things going on that I did not know about but I will not go into that for brevity’s sake.

Sorry If I missed it. But I am still having issues with the Testing build with certain apps on Wayland on my PineBook Pro (KDE and Wayland). Certain apps such as GIMP and SimpleNote just as examples do not fully render their UI or other UI hiccups. This has been the case of all Testing builds for the last couple of months. I recall one or more others mentioned the issue…but have not seen anything since. Is this a known issue or isolated to me at this point? X11 is working just fine so I have not pursued researching further, mainly just curious.
