Manjaro 21.1 Pahvo Release is near

But the normal iso is disabled by default,sure maybe you can disable it in the minimal iso by default but not on the normal iso.

I installed the minimal ISO. matray was easy to remove from the autostart.

I installed the “manjaro-kde-21.1-stable-staging-210815-linux513” iso. I get eerror when installed packages.

Super minimal thingie pacman -Sy yay brings up the “AUR detecetd … blah” GTK dialog. Don’t click cancel, but OK and the next dialog has “gtk_ok” on the ok button. not even sure if that’s a manjaro thing …

GTK is :ok: :laughing:

You can submit an issue for Pamac here:

Issues · Applications / pamac · GitLab

It’s easy for the developers to see and keep track of issues there.

EDIT: Might want to mention the yaourt bit, too. That’s long deprecated and insecure.

EDIT: That’s manjaro-aur-support, not Pamac. See Phil’s response below.

“Jaja, double holds betta” :slight_smile: Thanks for pointing that out, I’ll try that. Good night :first_quarter_moon:
EDIT: Thanks for the hint. Will do as soon as I get rid of the 422 error logging in, something with my OTP. Tomorrow. yyaaaawwwnourt.

That dialog is not part of Pamac. I think @Ste74 introduced it as an additional helper called manjaro-aur-support to the Gnome edition.

With those great news about choosing btrfs for swap, is it also available to choose btrfs for the whole system on calamares while performing a fresh install? Thanks for the great work!

I think that is actually the other way around. You can select BTRFS as file system, and it works with SWAP file.

What is matray used for ?

I use XFS as / partitionwith manjaro, so cool and so fast.
but have to be done manually and not so difficult to do.
happy to see there is another XFS Lover in town

I’m currently running the stable-staging and i’m pretty happy with it.
But i’d love to see Manjaro put some more attention to stuffs like

  • Sharing Folders on LAN
    Well there are was ways to do that all over the internet but those are so complicated when we often have no time for that “samba here, samba there etc.”
    Please make as easy as a click is so we can stop being rejected by mate at work or in our Home office LAN for both Plasma and Gnome (because those are the biggest player in town).
    Thanks Phil, Thanks team!

Does the btrfs installation includes compression by default or it has to be done manually?


Plasma already has a one click share button,if you right click on the folder and go to sharing tab.

You can also install warpinator or nitroshare applications to share folder over LAN.

I doubt that Calamares supports this so has to be done manually.

I made some tests with the Manjaro 21.1 KDE minimal ISO.

Installation of Manjaro: OK.
Installation of some software: OK.
Installation of Global themes: OK.
Installation of other menu (launchpad menu): OK.
Maytray error → I disabled Maytray.
Use Dolphin: OK.

By default, it is X11 who is used. Now, I want to switch to Wayland. How to do that ?
Is Optimus technology is taken in account by Wayland now ? I’ve got a laptop with the Optimus technology.


As far as I know it is still in a technical preview state (google KDE Wayland). Nvidia on top of that is multiplying the issues. Try it for yourself you’ll see what works.

Search KDE enable Wayland on the forum.
