Manjaro-specific packages which need an update

pspp is updated in unstable.

(along with snapd which I said I wasn’t going to do any more…)

I’ve updated amdvlk but there’s no lib32-amdvlk PKGBUILD available on GitLab so I don’t know how to build that package.

Edit: I’ve tried to merge the AUR lib32-amdvlk-git with amdvlk so we’ll see how that works.

vlc-nightly is at a lower version than vlc

Update needed

  • libcpuid: upstream is at 0.4.1 (i-nex may need a rebuild);
  • compiz-manjaro: compiz has been released;
  • gimp-gtk3: Build date is november 24th, 2018. It would be good to have a refresh I guess.


  • gimp-devel: Not needed anymore as far as I know, we already have Gimp 2.10;
  • vlc-nightly: Was interesting when we only had VLC 2 for so long, but now that we have VLC 3, I see no point of keeping it honestly.

Thanks in advance.


I’ve removed gimp-devel and vlc-nightly. They’re pointless.

PKGBUILDs are still on GitLab if we ever want to update them again.

Suggest replace vlc-nightly with vlc stable in Manjaro Mate Edition

@jonathon I’m not sure if the tlp/tlp-rdw overlay is still needed. If so, v1.2 would now be available.

Maybe also beshell and razor-qt should be removed, they have missing dependencies and build date is in 2013.

kde-servicemenu-dropbox should also be removed as dropbox is missing

I’ll have a look. Our overlay package makes the 1.1 defaults less aggressive, 1.2 might not need it (though I suspect it still will).

[Removed Packages]

dockbarx and dockbarx-gtk3 have dependency python2-keybinder2, which seems to have been dropped from main repositories into AUR

edit: I see that Stefano has now repackaged it in the community repo. Thank you!

Well, looks like it is the moment for a good spring cleanup?

Additionally to what said above, I have some additional package that could potentially be removed.

Last packaged by @philm

  • chromimum-chromevox: Last packaged Sept 10th, 2013. Phew, more than 5 years old! I accidentally discovered this old relic when searching for Chromium. Does it still even work with the current version of Chromium?

  • pamac-classic: Last packaged May 30th, 2018. Out of date (upstream is at version 6.7.0). Upstream Github repository is archived, so I looks like the project has been abandoned by upstream. I don’t know if it even works with the current versions of libraries. I suggest to just get rid of it completely instead of trying to maintain it.

  • pamac-dev and pamac-dev-tray-appindicator: Old (well, not that old, but still behind) development package that are not split like the regular pamac packages. Also, it isn’t really maintained much as far as I know. I suggest to remove it from repo if you don’t keep it up to date to at least the same level as the regular one and readd it if deemed necessary in the future.

it works just fine. used it yesterday.

Huh. Good to know, at least it does work.

I still maintain my position though, maybe not that extreme. At least, update to the lastest version if Manjaro team still wants to maintain it, but keep it in check in case troubles arise because of incompatibilities with newer versions of its dependencies.

gamemode just got an update to 1.3 today.

Not sure if i should link this here or not, so, if is out of purpose or place, please remove my comment.
There should be no traces of any qupzilla links, profiles and/or packages, as it seems to create a bad vibe and nonfunctional launchers when installing via Architect.

Hi, I don’t know if it is the right place to report, but it seems that the juffed package need an update. It does not want to start since the last big package upgrade:

$ juffed 
juffed: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

And is seems that qscintilla-qt5 provide:


Yes, the last packager is @philm and the build date is 2017-11-25. It is due for a rebuild, or dropped it completely if no one wants to take care of it.

Spring cleanup time.

I can only see juffed as an AUR package. Not sure what the deal here is. In any case re-installing it from the AUR will rebuild it against latest libraries and like that should resolve errors like the one you post…
