[Stable Update] 2016-10-23 - Manjaro 16.10 Package Release

stable
release

#205

KDE RC2

Still have a problem with slow half line scrolling in System Settings>Desktop Behaviour>Desktop Effects.

Removing the package xf86-input-libinput makes the problem go away.

Otherwise ok if I don’t click on “New Session”.

Don’t delete/uninstall anything blindly!

One can also query the database to know which package a file in the file system belongs to:
$ pacman -Qo /path/to/file_name

Great job, update ran smoothly. Keep up the excellent work :slight_smile:


#209

Thanks for the help. But I figured it was because I installed setuptools from pip. Uninstalled it using pip. And installed them via pacman. Everthing’s good now (oh well its not)


#210

i didnt remove the compositor [default for xfce] i just disabled it in window manager tweaks [did that immediately after i installed xfce, then enable compton compositing. felt that better, but thats just my opinion… glad you could upgrade by holding back those packages]


#211

Installation fails for me! But, I don’t think it’s necessarily the iso’s fault. I decided to test it on new hardware: a UEFI-boot Chuwi Hi10 Pro with an intel Atom x5-8300 and eMMC storage :stuck_out_tongue: the XFCE live-cd is unable to probe 3/4ths of the drive and can’t format or mount the partition I’ve set aside for the install. fdisk works fine, it lists all the partitions, but I can’t tell the kernel about 'em (partprobe fails). I can boot Win10 on the machine, make my partition, open a VirtualBox xfce16.10 session with raw disk access in efi mode, and apparently do everything from there; but there’s no sign of the bootloader in BBS or UEFI menus.

I’m convinced that kernel 4.4 is just too old – 4.81 is about where we start to see proper Atom and eMMC support – but I haven’t been able to create an install medium off XFCE 16.10 on a newer kernel, ie., by adding “kernel=linux49” to the xfce profile.conf and using buildiso: it fails when writing the efi shell1 (iirc, “make_efi()”) with a “there is no space left on the device” error. Has anyone got a Manjaro install iso built on a new kernel?


#212

Updated 3 out of 4 machines without problem, using Philip’s instructions. (The fourth machine I didn’t have access to yet.) Two desktops, Intel and AMD/Radeon, and an Asus Zen Book (Intel) all upgraded equally well and running flawlessly now.

One minor thing, launching Libre Office crashed irregularly (1 out of 4 times), and also crashed my whole session, leaving me at the login-screen. But after I deleted $HOME/.config/libreoffice/ all is fine.

Since nobody had reported this yet, it seemed to be an issue with the configuration on my part.


#213

Is this lo-fresh or lo-still? I saw this behavior on a relative’s machine running ubuntu 16.04 but system updates seem to have fixed it


#214

It’s libreoffice-still. But, as I said, deleting the config-folder helped and it is behaving totally normal now.


#215

Have we had 3 upgrades this week or… am I connected to the testing repos and I am not even aware of that?


#216

I think it was One big one, one small one, and either one (or two) clean-ups to packages only.

I don’t mind those that fix application packages here and there because they don’t take down anybody’s system.


[Stable Update] 2016-10-31 - Manjaro Fringilla finally released
#217

Fixed by today’s update.

After also fixing the gtk3-print-backends thing, all is right now, I think.

Thank you Manjaro team.

Rgds,
jss


#218

I changed the cursor theme as you said and the cursor changes without asking any password.


#219

Eclipse now segfaults on the gtk3 update. Forcing eclipse to use gtk2 works, but the UI isn’t pretty.


#220

skype don’t work for me


#221

#222

I am unable to access cli installer… :frowning:


#223

There is no cli-installer any longer in 16.10


#224

I just posted an article on my experience with my new PC and Calamares.
