How to disable Package Manager, Manjaro Settings Manager in Autostart?

And why is there’s a need to get added them from a background service to pamac?

Instead a manual command from cli or when we just start the GUI?

Yes, there is a systemd service which periodically refreshes the mirrors, but updates don’t always come at the same time of day, and the service that checks the mirrors only does this periodically at set times.

So there is absolute nothing to trigger it manually?

And i have to rely on that service?

Err … pacman-mirrors , ex:

sudo pacman-mirrors -f && sudo pacman -Syu

(You might want to create a shorter mirror pool beforehand, such as by using -c or interactive -i … setting United_States and https for example would result in only 20 or so mirrors … without creating a custom mirror pool first, the above command would query mirrors globally)

if you have manjaro-settings-manager-kcm installed, you can do

if manjaro-settings-manager-kcm is removed from the system like mine
better not -Rsn
it will remove manjaro-settings-manager too…

sudo pacman -Rns manjaro-settings-manager-knotifier
Packets (3) ckbcomp-1.215-1  manjaro-settings-manager-0.5.7-16  manjaro-settings-manager-knotifier-0.5.7-16

better only
pacman -R manjaro-settings-manager-knotifier

Lucky that i had kcm installed, why did you uninstalled kcm? what is this service doing?

Its not a service.
Manjaro settings manager is … what it is

A kcm is like a plugin for plasma system settings.
manjaro-settings-manager-kcm is just msm in the system settings.

@notageek not in my, and probably most, cases.
Only if msm was installed as a dependency of the notifier.
(in my case manjaro-settings-manager-kcm is marked as explicitly installed)

Im aware about MSM, i was asking explicit about KCM… because i cant find any infos about it.

So, what is KCM doing, what is the role from that plugin?

… It puts MSM in the KDE System Settings.

I removed knotifier on my PC with pamac UI and have no problems, but
on my Laptop i used your command and my journal usage shows dangerous filesize now,
in around 20min it gets 200-300MB bigger :frowning:

Can you help me to solve my problem? Should i reinstall msm knotifier? or better remove MSM and every dependencies and fully reinstall?

removing knotifier … increases journal size?

I dont think so … beyond the information stored of the actions which would be however many lines of text … journal is a log … it grows unless you set a maximum or clean it, etc.

Why not check the messages that being added to the journal?

You was right, i rolled back befor i did this changes and it looks that this bug was already there.

Im open another Topic to this issue.
