Manjaro KDE 16.10 released

It took us a while to complete our development cycle for Manjaro Fringilla. Finally it is done. Happy Halloween :wink:

Our KDE edition continues to deliver this powerful, mature and feature-rich desktop environment with a unique look-and-feel, and with the perks of Manjaro’s latest tools. We ship now Plasma 5.8 desktop in combination with the latest KDE-Apps 16.08. It was a huge step to get it all playing together smoothly and to give the user experience the same feeling as our KDE4 editions of the past.

Kernel 4.4 is used for this release, such as the latest drivers available to date. Relative to the last installation media release, our tools have been improved and polished.

The Manjaro Settings Manager (MSM) now provides an easy-to-use graphical interface for installing and removing the many series of kernels we offer. Manjaro’s selection of readily available kernels remains the most extensive of all Linux distribution we know of. At the time of this release, nine kernel-series are available directly from our binary repositories, ranging from the mature & rock-solid 3.10 series to the latest 4.9 release. Additionally we offer two realtime kernel series. Such a wide array of available kernel options results in extensive hardware support, getting the most out of your system for you, be it old or new. We also created a kcm module to integrate MSM seamlessly into System-Settings of Plasma 5. We have now several notifier for MSM to be installed optionally.

So let us know what you think of Fringilla. We hope you enjoy this release.

Kind regards,
Philip Müller and the Manjaro Development Team

First of all, thank you for the new release! :smiley:

Now my problem…

I’ve installed RC2 a few days ago and everything worked except Dropbox (there is also a thread in the Newbie section). I tried everything suggested in that thread, nothing worked. So I decided to do a complete re-install with the now released 16.10 KDE edition. I did not change any settings since installation/first boot. I then installed Dropbox, but again, I can not start Dropbox a standard user. Any suggestions how to fix this problem?

Kind regards,

Ok, don’t laugh! After the third re-install of the 16.10 KDE edition… Dropbox opened. Unfortunately, I still don’t know what caused the problems before.
