Pamac-manager won't start "No provider of glGenSamplers found"

pamac-manager does not start either from the desktop icon or from the command line.

Welcome to the forum! :vulcan_salute:

There was a major update yesterday, which introduced a problem with libpamac. The package was updated earlier today. Have you updated your system yet? :arrow_down:

sudo pacman-mirrors -f && sudo pacman -Syyu

Be sure to let it finish and do not interrupt the process.

I had already updated the mirrors and installed the latest updates. The problem persists. I guess the problem is related to the video driver because of the last lines of the error message.

No provider of glGenSamplers found.  Requires one of:
Desktop OpenGL 3.3
OpenGL ES 3.0

My driver is nvidia-340, owner driver installed from aur.

#> glxinfo | grep "OpenGL version"
OpenGL version string: 3.3.0 NVIDIA 340.108

Have you also updated your AUR packages? :arrow_down:

yay -Syu

Yes, the driver is up to date.
My desktop environment is KDE.

In my laptop which has a Intel video driver everything works fine.

Your desktop environment has nothing to do with that. :wink:

Then I guess it must be related to your proprietary Nvidia driver, and in that case, I’m afraid I myself can no longer be of assistance. Hopefully someone with more knowledge about Nvidia graphics will be able to help you.

OK. I find a solution for this: Just install pamac-gtk3 from command line

pamac install pamac-gtk3

And now is working!

…and following this thread

turns out there is a conflict between Nvidia driver and gtk4. A proposed solution is to add the following environment variable:

/usr/bin/env GDK_DEBUG=gl-glx YOURPROGRAM

Were you using pamac-gtk (gtk4) before ?

Yes!! pamac-gtk was replaced by pamac-gtk3
