Manjaro-specific packages which need an update

@Ste74, can this overlay of polkit be removed, or are there any customization we need to keep?

newer overwritten sync packages:


   polkit-0.116-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz  ->  polkit-0.115+24+g5230646-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

I m not at my manjaro pc.. Who build this polkit overlay.. If i m the man i don t remember why we build so we can remove and let see what happen... :wink:

There is custom settings based on experiences of Manjaro users. Some settings are modified during the build of the package with some sed magic.

Quoting the PKGBUILD:

  # These changes represent feedback gathered over time from Manjaro users and
  # should prevent "hidden" issues with USB devices and performance issues
  # with SSDs.
  # Anyone looking for further power savings can easily alter these settings
  # after installation.

  # Be conservative with SATA ALPM to prevent poor SSD performance and
  # potential data corruption; makes little difference in normal system usage.
  sed -i '167s/ min_power/ max_performance/' default

  # Disable aggressive USB device autosuspend.
  # This prevents "hidden" issues with USB hardware that is incompatible.
  sed -i '270s/enable/enable aggressive/; 272s/=1/=0/' default


Manjaro build files for polkit has a .install and a .patch. As for it it is still relevant or not nowadays, that's a good question, I don't know honestly.

tlp was modified by @jonathon unless someone else changed something since.

Thank you for letting us know!
I have just now rebuilt an updated version amarok 2.9.0.r367.gfc370bbebf in unstable.


deepin-screenshot has been updated upstream, with an important fix (blurring wasn't working correctly) - can it be updated in the Manjaro repos too? It's gone from 4.1.11 to 4.2.0.

It is an Arch package Report about it here

libinput-gestures is at 2.44 upstream, the repos are still at 2.41



updated in unstable

A post was merged into an existing topic: Non-Manjaro packages which have been flagged as needing an update

community/grub-btrfs is at 1.11-2, while upstream and arch are at 4.0.1

Newer versions are needed to correctly populate the btrfs snapshot submenu in grub with snapshots taken with snapper -> snap-pac -> snap-pac-grub.


That is nearly two years old, any reason why we are not simply using the Arch build for this?

I don't know; I assume it's an overlay package which has stagnated.

I've removed the overlay package in unstable.

It has been fixed in May of last year with pkgrel 10

Calamares 3.2.9 got released three days ago.


@philm Might interest you.

Psst - :wink:
