Manjaro-Deepin 17.1.11/



As I have commented on the Linuxdeepin github issue, I cannot reproduce the problem.
It seems to be a special case on the user’s system where desktops and applications have been mixed…
It certainly doesn’t exist on the 17.1.11 ISO.


It can be made quite light by disabling many startup services.

A comparison of RAM usage of Manjaro editions “out of the box” was made by Chrysotomus:
You can also disable animations to reduce the strain on the CPU / GPU.


I just gave it a test drive, and wow is it slick! Well done! :smile:


What’s the differents between deepin stable and minimal iso? What software missing? thx


Have a look at this list.
Everything marked “>extra” is only included in the full version.


I realized today that deepin-anything, Deepin’s file search tool, being a dkms package requires linux-headers explicitly installed, in this case linux414-headers. Otherwise you will see module load errors during boot process.
To fix this on existing installs you can simply install the headers for the kernel you are actually using.

I have now updated the ISO edition to with the fix already included.

@oberon bootfehler deepin nach neuinstallation [Failed to find module 'vfs_monitor']

Hi @oberon ,
I get [FAILED] Failed to start Load Kernel Modules on boot.
I am on kernel 4.17.9

Output of: systemctl status systemd-modules-load.service

How to fix? Thanks in advance.

Edit: Fixed

Ran sudo dkms install deepin-anything/0.0.1 -k 4.17.9-1-MANJARO
And now I don’t get those errors :wink:


is alt+drag a feature of deepin yet?



Thank you for maintaining this edition. One of my laptops for serious work is at the lower end (quadcore, 1,8GB Ram, but lovely to write long texts on it). I have looked for a pretty light OS. LXDE is great, XFCE is great, but - guess what? Manjaro Deepin consumes only slightly more RAM at idle, not worth to mention, and is way more attractive, also very snappy and stable.
Long story short: Please keep up the work for this edition!


Thanks a lot! Have fun with Deepin! :laughing:


Yes, I love Deepin myself and use it as my preferred desktop at the local Men’s Shed where I volunteer as an IT Supervisor. I love hearing the enquiring wonder reactions “what on earth is that” as the start up theme runs (volume on full). I get a lot of “that looks good but very complicated” comments.
I would love the admin area to realise it isn’t really that different to other computer desktops and switch them from LMDE (after previously educating and abolishing Windows). Unfortunately, mainstream infrequent users only tolerate “XP feel” alternate desktops at a stretch.


Hi there oberon, I’m just jumping in to thank you, so very much, for all the work and time you guys put into this Deepin version of Manjaro. Sorry if I’m spamming but I’ve been wanting to express how great it is for a long time but didn’t know where and how. It is by far my favorite DE, but better than deepin OS in my opinion. Thanks again, I wish you guys all the best!


Unfortunately deepin-file-manager still isn’t actually respecting gtk-theming. It uses a hard-coded theme which has a dark variation. You can activate it by selecting it in the file-manager’s settings:



That’s exactly what I found when I deleted my post. Works for me!

Now, about that weather plugin I tagged you in… :thinking:

Thanks Oberon
PS…I’m not sure if you like the beer, or are the king…either way, you’re ok in my book. But the beer isn’t bad either.


Hello mate. Thanks for creating this beauty :stuck_out_tongue: its perfect!
Anyway, do you plan on building a 18.0 Installation Media antime soon?
I can’t install 17.1 and update to 18 because somehow 17.1 kernel (4.14) doesn’t have my drivers so It wont boot for me.
I need the 18.0 installation media, assuming it will come with 4.19 kernel as default one? :stuck_out_tongue:
Have a nice day!


It will come, just not immediately as there are currently some bugs with latest Deepin updates that need to be ironed out first :wink:
An option for you would be installing with manjaro-architect where you can select whichever kernel you need … :sunglasses:


so If I install Manjaro Deepin v17.1.11 with Architect, then upgrade the system after booting, would I end up running Latest Deepin DE (15.7 i think?) on top of Manjaro 18?

Edit: What I meant is, does sudo pacman -Sy update the Deepin Version along with Manjaro version?
