How to provide good information

:+1: Welcome to Manjaro! :+1:

To allow all of us on this forum to help you, we need some basic information from your system, so please be aware of the following:

Please click the ► at the beginning of the section that is appropriate for you.

I'm really new to both this forum software and Linux in general, please hold my hand!

It’s OK to be new to everything! Just a few years ago, this used to be my avatar here :wink:
Kernel Newbie.

  1. If you don’t know the importance of posting text instead of images, Please read this first and then continue reading below.
  2. Regardless of your problem, always do the following:
    • Go to the manjaro forum home page

    • Choose the correct category

    • Create a new topic

    • Describe the symptoms of your issue succinctly simply and shortly. :grin:

    • Go to a terminal by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T, or by going to your start menu and look for something called Konsole or Console or xterm

    • Maximise that black screen (that’s “the terminal”)

    • Copy-paste the following:

      inxi --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host --width
      • Please note that by hovering over the above text, a small icon will appear at the end of a single line or at the top right of multiple lines of text.
      • Clicking that icon takes care of the copy part already, so you just have to paste it into the terminal by right-clicking on it and choosing Paste.
      • Personally Identifiable Information like serial numbers and MAC addresses will be filtered out by the above command.
    • Press Enter to execute the command

    • Now go back to your question and type 3 backticks (```)

    • Select, and copy-paste the full output of the inxi command FROM the terminal TO BELOW those 3 backticks

    • End the output with another set of 3 backticks.
      (your output is now correctly formatted to allow us to help you more efficiently)

    • End your post with an actual question like:

      • What should I do now?
      • How should I proceed?
Your question should look something like this now:

My flux capacitor is discharging at 10 Kilo-Cochranes per second and I don’t know why.
This is my inxi output:

What should I do to ensure my flux capacitor discharges at a normal rate?

I'm scared of the terminal because I once did something stupid under Windows and that totally f@#$! up my system!

The above methodology cannot harm your computer, but we’re not going to fight your phobia so the manjaro-log-helper package can make generating and sharing information even easier:

  • Simply go to Add/Remove Software in your menu
  • Click the magnifying glass :mag: to search
  • Type manjaro-log-helper
  • Click Install next to the package as per below screenshot:
  • Click Apply
  • Go back to your menu and click the new application
  • and you’ll get something like this:

Please note that posts containing destructive commands like fork bombs and/or other intentionally destructive commands (like dd) will be unlisted and the users who posted them will get a very stern talking to

I'm not new OR I have hardware errors OR I have boot errors
  • Whatever the question is you’re asking, always, always provide an

    inxi --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host --width

    even if you think it’s not relevant.

  • If you’re asking a question about an application, run it in the terminal first and provide the output enclosed in code formatting (3 ```, see N00b section above) :wink:

  • If you have display problems, provide xrandr output too.

Examine kernel ring buffer logs for hardware errors
  • dmesg is the command you need

    Usage examples:

    sudo dmesg | less

    The above uses the | ‘pipe’ command to less so output is scrollable with arrow keys.

    sudo dmesg | grep usb

    The above will get info on USB devices

    sudo dmesg --level emerg,alert,crit,err,warn

    will only give emergency, alert, critical, error, and warning messages.

Query the SystemD /Journal logs.

The journalctl command queries the SystemD /Journal logs as documented here

Usage examples:

  journalctl --catalog --priority=3 --boot=-1

The flags of the above command correspond to explanatory output, priority level, and which boot to pull logs from.

  journalctl --follow

The above command will allow a continuous refresh of the journal.

Query more logs

The directory /var/log/ contains logs from a number of sources.

Usage examples:

  cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log

The above will print the entire Xorg log (your Window Manager) from the current session.

  less /var/log/Xorg.0.log.old

The above will show the Xorg log from the previous successful session allowing you to use the keys on your keyboard

  less /var/log/Xorg.1.log

The above will show the Print Xorg log from after the last suspend.

  cat /var/log/pacman.log

will print the entire pacman (and pamac) log to view package management history.

Please note that this Post is still under construction.

dmesg requires sudo.


missing option --no-host for inxi


I thought this post was locked.
But modern inxi shouldnt require --no-host

…oh look, Stable still has a stale version. Not sure if its implemented there?

Depends on config … is that the default ?

I think it was changed by the Manjaro team.

You probably have switched it off by changing the setting in /etc/sysctl.d/99-sysctl.conf

echo 'kernel.dmesg_restrict=0' | sudo tee -a /etc/sysctl.d/99-sysctl.conf

Yeah. Changed in May 2019.


It also possible install via pamac/pacman ( in GNOME ia already there ) manjaro-logs-helper


What online service does it use to send to ?

PS - the inxi is odd. Its missing things like boot params (-a), and is also doing pointless -c0 which is ‘no color output’.

PPS - restored simpler inxi command thanks to stable update and added m-l-h

The topic is a good start :+1:t2:

I recommend to describe how to replace the username within the logs with the person’s forum account name.

Since each log has a different layout, a “simple” addition of “pipe sed” of all mentioned commands does not suffice unfortunately.

All of them should work fine with something like this:

COMMAND(S) | sed "s/$HOSTNAME/HOST/gI" | sed "s/$USER/USER/gI"
  1. I’m going to say is one last time this year: inxi --full --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host is better than inxi -Fazy :innocent:

  2. Could you change that to:

    export LANG=C; inxi 

    As for anyone that has an English version installed, it doesn’t do any harm but for any other language out there, at least we’ll get the output in English…



For this purpose I agree with @Fabby regarding the usage of the long version of parameters.

The export is not needed:

LANG=C inxi ..

is better, as it sets the language only for this one command and not for the remaining shell (which could confuse some people).

Most of the time, I ask for multiple commands (inxi, journalctl, … so then an export is :sunglasses: as it keeps the English version until the terminal is closed…)

So it’s easier on the end-user: they now know to type export LANG=C before providing any output in the future…

For applications it could be useful to add something like:

  1. Start the application in a terminal and post the output here.
  2. Where to find the command for the application
  3. check --help and see if there is a verbose or debug mode.

Would be easier to quote it instead of writing it again and again :slight_smile:

One of those uses the old Manjaro logo … also … this image is a medical sign. We don’t provide medical help, is technical help :wink:

I agree that you provide technical support but the technical support brings peace of mind and therefore partly medical treatment! Do you agree? If I change the red of the cross to green, for example, it may refer to technical assistance!

No, I do not agree.

Green Cross is a symbol of nature and life, so no …
