Stop creating new thread! Back to where we left, are you sure I needed a replacement? Not for 50 dollars no way, I’ll get a used i5 desktop for that money.

Regarding the iso, pamac and octopi are both in there and I had a few conflicts because of that. Could you fix the manjaro-hello as well, the Applications tab is unable to install apps.


#5

You don’t have to download it. ISOs is for fresh installs not maintenance.

That is the idea of rolling release …

As long as you keep your system up-to-date you have exactly the same as the ISO.

The ISO is just refreshing base - and I was not aware of the big stable update when I updated the 18.0.2 ISO - so as a courtesy to our users - I rebuild and updated the release number.


#6

What that means is that your installed packages are at the same version as in the mirror you sync with. However, a newbie might think that means that your installation is identical to a freshly-installed ISO.

For example, if you read all the release announcements you might learn that:

  • A package was removed because it becomes problematic. For example: Plymouth was removed from new ISOs, and you had to manually remove it for your installation to boot the same way as an installation from a newer ISO.

  • A package was added, for example
    ms-office-online
    You would never get it unless you manually added it.

  • A package could be ‘demoted’ to the AUR. You can list your AUR packages with:
    $ pacman -Qm
    And remove the ones you do not want.

  • Packages can become orphans. You can remove them with
    $ sudo pacman -Rsn $(pacman -Qqdt)

  • Configuration files may change. Most changes are harmless to most users, but users should know how to manage pacnew and pacsave files.

  • Default permissions can change over time. For example:
    Directory permissions differ on /var/lib/samba/private/
    filesystem: 755 package: 700
    So, you are advised to change them with:
    $ sudo chmod 700 /var/lib/samba/private/

thanks a lot for this release, i wanted to try lxqt and it looks great.

I have a few things to mention:

issue 1- touchpad tapping doesn’t work (important manjaro default, must be fixed imho)
isuse 2- some menus buttons such as the ones in the Falkon browser or in the lxqt configuration window are greyed out and give a feeling of disabled (not a big deal because i am sure users can get around this by editing preferences, but would be cool to have it by default)
issue 3- the lxqt bar is too busy in the top left side, which makes it confusing. a different layout would be better imo, but i guess this is just personal preference. Having desktop picker - quick access - currently opened softwares together makes it look a bit confusing
issue 4 - laptop brightness keys don’t work by default (probably because xfce-power-manager is not the choice)

and two questions, please reply:

question 1: can i safely uninstall qt5 settings? since apparently this build isnt using that but lxqt settings panel.
question 2: is there any special reason for having 3-4 different terminal emulators? can they be uninstalled and just keep our choice? for instance uninstall all but QT or ST
question 3: can we safely remove tint2? as far as i can tell it’s not being used by any bar.

thanks a lot for your help and
GREAT WORK!

For Issue 1, I seem to recall I was successful with something like this:

Edit: Here is what I did:

Thanks for the reply, mparillo.

I am aware how to fix this (did it for my arch machine a few weeks ago) but I was just mentioning it to the op since maybe he forgot to add it himself. As far as i know manjaro always tries to make everything work out of the box.


#10

@fhdk hello sir, would you please help update the softwares for LXQt? They have updated almost all of them to 0.14.1. Thanks!

P/S: I tried to compile and build myself but in the end all the configs were ruined and the graphics was really awful. How can I fix it?


#11

Since we have this release now… Can we get someone to put it on the main website?
