Manjaro-specific packages which need an update

It is already in unstable repo!

Please, update libfm-qt (from 0.14.1-1 to 0.14.1-2). Its Arch Linux maintener missed to rebuild it against the last Qt update. This caused some bugs, like pcmanfm-qt segfaulting when using drag+drop.

libfm-qt is an Arch community package, not a Manjaro-specific package. While you wait for it to trickle down, you could download the PKGBUILD and build it yourself.

Oh right. I didn't notice this was for Manjaro-specific packages. Just built it. Thanks!

trizen is at 1.62 compared to 1.58 in manjaro community repo.

gconf has been removed from repos on Testing and Unstable. It is still a requirement (according to the dependencies of their corresponding package(s) on Stable) for some programs that are in repos such as Etcher, Pix and OnlyOffice. What do we do?

etcher we have fixed. Others we may drop or find a solution ...

It is In AUR if needed

Having to rely on AUR to be able to install packages that are in repos would be a bit stupid though.

So either Manjaro Team packages gconf themselves, make the software somehow works without gconf if it is even possible, or drop everything that needs gconf completely.

I've found a solution for Pix.
Fixed with version 2.4.3-2 in unstable.

We also found a solution for OnlyOffice.
Until further notice, we will take over pconf from AUR.
OnlyOffice has also been updated to version 5.4.2.

If there are any other problems with gconf, please report.

Please update kvantum-theme-matcha 20190810-1 to fix this problem:

Fixed commits 28 Aug, 2019:

Last packager for kvantum-theme-matcha is @philm.

Also, I guess the description for kvantum-theme-matchama should be "Matchama theme for Kvantum", right? @Ste74

EDIT: Hum... wait a minute, the repo that used to be called "matcha-kde" got renamed to "matchama-kde"; therefore, isn't kvantum-theme-matchama supposed to simply replace kvantum-theme-matcha?

On Gitlab: "Project 'cscs/matcha-kde' was moved to 'cscs/matchama-kde'. Please update any links and bookmarks that may still have the old path."

EDIT2: Now that I think of it, we can't make an automatic replacement just like that, considering that the theme has been renamed. People that used the theme with the old name will suddenly have problems because the theme with the old name won't exist anymore.

For the old package, perhaps we could add "(obsolete, replaced by matchama)" or something like that.

By default, kvantum-theme-matcha is installed after installation. I also noticed this second kvantum-theme-matchama package. So you can safely swap them?

As stated here, pyrex is a dependency of compiz-manjaro in the extra repo but is no longer in the Testing or Unstable branches.

It looks like compiz in the AUR removed its pyrex dependency in February of last year when it was updated to 0.9.14. It is likely that either the dependency will need to be reintroduced to keep the 0.9.13 version, or manjaro-compiz needs to be updated.

Latest version is 0.9.14.1 according to upstream.

https://launchpad.net/compiz

The latter option would be the best choice to me (update Compiz), unless there is technical reason not to do it.

Last packager is @philm

Well, at first glance, I do not see why it would be a problem.

Try to install kvantum-theme-matchama first. Is there is no conflict between the two packages, you should be able to change your Kvantum theme like you would do with any theme.

EDIT: I have just noticed that you are using KDE. I am not very knowledgeable about KDE theming, so I do not know if you would need to do more steps to theme your system properly.

firefox needs an update to version 72 to fix security vulnerabilities.

firefox is not Manjaro specific, it is an Arch Linux package. It was updated to version 72 yesterday:
https://www.archlinux.org/packages/extra/x86_64/firefox/
Yet maybe for the sake of security it can be quickly put to Testing and Stable Manjaro repositories.
