Left USB stopped working

After upgrade my PineBook Pro to Manjaro 23.02 XFCE the left USB stopped working
Hi there!
I do not have much experience with Manjaro (I’m Debian/Ubuntu user), but interested in Manjaro and Arch.
Yesterday I followed Aragorn suggestion and updated my system:

$ sudo pacman-mirrors -f && sudo pacman -Fy && sudo pacman -Syyu

Then, reboot… And, surprise : the mouse didn’t work on left-USB anymore.

Any suggestions to get rid of the problem??

PS: By the way my R installation from

finished with error… R does not start… Any suggestion to this issue???

Try installing another kernel and see if the USB issue is related to the kernel.

For RStudio create a separate topic please if you want support on that.

Hi @Ice-O-Star ,

I had a similar problem about a month ago after updating my PineBook Pro. No matter what I did, the USB Type-C port simply wouldn’t work, however, oddly enough I discovered that after shutdown the PineBook Pro and then use the barrel charger for a full charge, the USB Type-C suddenly worked and have been working since then.

I know that it sounds really weird and it might not work on your case, but that is what I did, so I think it is worth the try. Just remember to NEVER try to use the barrel port and USB Type-C simultaneously for charging as it could fry your motherboard.

I wish you the best of lucks xD

Hello! New PBP Manjaro ARM user here. I’m coming from X86 Debian and am a bit lost. I have the non-functional USB 3.0 port on the left of PBB issue. What is a safe stable kernel I can install and how do I do it? I’m unfamiliar with Pac-Man and dos/don’ts of Manjaro. Thanks in advance!

The USB port is working fine for me on the unstable branch with kernel 6.6.2-1.

Thank you for the reply! How do I switch to this kernel? Is there any trade off by switching over to it?

See Switching Branches - Manjaro

Thank you!
