Hi @Strit and @spikerguy,
Just downloaded Gnome Khadas Vim3 21.06 and burn on USB. After numerous boot up (kernel panic due to linux-vim 12.9.1-1) during booting process or right after login, was able to finally switch to mainline linux 5.12.11-1.
I noticed that there is NO Hardware Acceleration eventhough /run/media/jfl/ROOT_MNJRO/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/01-panfrost.conf is set to “glamor”.

Both in GNOME or GNOME Xorg session NO Hardware Acceleration. Appreciate yourguidance on how to enable Hardware Acceleration in GNOME or GNOME Xorg session?
Another perculiar situation is that the keyboard keys. @ key and " key are switched! Only in this Manjaro GNOME (keyboard selected is US).
@strit & @spikerguy,
Edit: For whatever reason, after reboot Hardware Acceleration is available on GNOME (Wayland) Session. For your info, I did not modify the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/01-panfrost.conf as it already set with “glamor” on first boot up or any other gdm3 settings. Will check GNOME Xorg session later and update.
Manjaro-Arm GNOME 40.2 desktop is quite different from the Ubuntu-Desktop (GNOME 3.38.5).
Edit 2: Login to GNOME Xorg, check with “glxinfo -B”, Panfrost NOT enabled. Open /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/01-panfrost.conf: Option “AccelMethod” “none”. Changed to “glamor” and re-login to GNOME-Xorg session, Now Panfrost enabled.
For the keyboard settings: looks like a bug related to ISO/ANSI version of keyboard settings. Can you please check in the gnome settings?
Somehow the according to “Settings” the keyboard is “ENGLISH (UK)”. During the first boot up setup I have selected US keyboard, don’t know why the system configured “ENGLISH (UK)”. Resolve it by adding another keyboard “ENGLISH (US)” and select “ENGLISH (US)” on the top right menu bar.
