[Stable Update] 2017-01-17 - Python, Xorg, Ruby, Gcc, Inkscape

#1

Buckle up, this is a huge update! :wink:

Python got updated to 3.6 and a huge amount of other packages depending on it needed to be rebuilt for that reason.

  • Mind that some of your packages from the AUR might also need a rebuild.
    To identify these, do the stable update first and then check if libraries are still installed in the directory /usr/lib/python3.5/site-packages:
    pacman -Qo /usr/lib/python3.5/site-packages
    will return the packages owning such files. If this returns empty you don’t need to do anything. If it returns packages from the AUR, you need to reinstall them with
    yaourt -S <packagename>

With this update Xorg-server is updated to 1.19. Experience on unstable and testing branches suggests that everything was well prepared and the update should be rather uneventful.

  • You will be asked to remove deprecated drivers xf86-input-acecad and xf86-input-joystick. Please confirm that.

freetype2 is going to “rename” terminus-font to "Xos4 Terminus".

  • Please make sure to rename the font accordingly in your settings!

The update of harfbuzz is incompatible with infinality-bundle! This is a serious problem on Plasma 5 and kinit will fail!

New in our repos is cinnamon-sounds, a collection of the original Linuxmint system-sounds for the Mate and Cinnamon desktops.
We have new version of Inkscape (0.92), ruby (2.4) and gcc (6.3.1)
The new default manjaro-KDE themes collection Breath, again designed by @mcder3, is now almost final with: plasma5-themes-breath, breath-wallpaper, breath-icon-theme , breath-dark-icon-theme and sddm-breath-theme - a few more adjustments to the wallpaper are still in preparation.
Xreader has now added epub support, Deepin-desktop received a bugfix and some KDE apps were updated aswell.
All kernels of the 4.x series and our rt-lts-kernel have seen new point releases. With the more progressive linux-rt-manjaro we have now moved on to base-kernel 4.9.

  • Linux48 has been labelled End-Of-Life and will be removed in the near future. So please consider moving on to linux49, which is going to be the next LTS kernel.

Security updates include flashplugin and python-crypto.

core i686:  36 new and 35 removed packages
core x86_64:  36 new and 35 removed packages
extra i686:  714 new and 754 removed packages

Unable to update my kde manjaro
Caffeine-ng not working since update
[Stable Update] 2017-01-30 - Kernels, Steam, Budgie, Deepin, KDE Framework, Virtualbox
[SOLVED] Quite some conflicts, is that normal?
#2

Dear fellow users, there are many packages which get updated in this update at once, this can cause errors not found in Testing!
If you are not sure about your skills to fix a possible breakage wait a couple of hours before updating to see if others post about issues.


#3

thanks for this flawless update!

Only thing to note is that people should use pacman to apply this update, pacaur wanted to remove my xserver…

-> xf86-input-libinput and xorg-server are in conflict (xorg-server). Remove xorg-server? [y/N] ^C

Regards,


#4

It worked perfectly fine - so far have not found anything that is not working. Used the gui-update-manager to do it and went great. Thanks once again =D


#5

A huge update indeed, around 500mb, but no probs at all.
I’ve used pamac to update the system.


#6

Couldn’t update with octopi, it just hanged. Updated with pacman, had to remove a few things

details=Summary removing xf86-input-joystick
(2/5) removing xf86-input-acecad
(3/5) removing calligra-l10n-uk
(4/5) removing calligra-karbon
(5/5) removing calligra-libs[/details]
I’m not using joystick as mouse replacemen but what if i will? Will i need to downgrade X server or wait a package update or libinput will/have its functionality?

Funny, in preview Summary works but in the actual post it doesn’t.


#7

Everything ok, no issues.
Just oone question - after update i’ve got info that some packages are newer than in repo

For example (sorry for Polish):

ostrzeżenie: xf86-input-void: local (1.4.1-3) jest nowsze niż extra (1.4.1-2)
ostrzeżenie: xorg-server: local (1.19.1-1) jest nowsze niż extra (1.18.4-1)
ostrzeżenie: xorg-server-common: local (1.19.1-1) jest nowsze niż extra (1.18.4-1)
ostrzeżenie: xorg-server-xwayland: local (1.19.1-1) jest nowsze niż extra (1.18.4-1)

Have i done sth wrong? Updated as always by

sudo pacman -Syyu

Edit: Already solved it - just changed mirrors to Germany :wink:


#9

I think those are being removed because they’ve been integrated into some other package.

What ‘Summary’?


#10

most of the xf86-input, xf86-video packages that were removed from repository are now in AUR if needed. (as long it will be maintened)
see arch news:
https://www.archlinux.org/news/xorg-server-1191-is-now-in-extra/


#11

Ah, wrong name, Hide Details in this forum.

#13

My Cinnamon is Boinked. Can’t start X . Used yaourt -Syua for update - My bad for not reading this Forum first. I’m using a 5700 HD Ati card. Can anyone help me fix this problem ??? SAD


#14

I don’t know anything about Manjaro tools. But as all those packages have been removed from repository. I guess they need to be removed somewhere in the profile you use.


#15

Thanks yes that was the problem did not recognise it as no red error and the program did not stop.


#16

no update available on my machine yet. impatience… :sweat_smile:


#17

Oblogout stopped working:
"pyGTK missing, install python-gtk2"
pygtk is installed, and python-gtk2 does not exist.

Also several icons in the system tray seems to have gone: solaar, clipit and the volume icon.


#18

Maybe you can try to change video driver to free/nonfree with mhwd?


#19

Updated on 2 machines with KDE and Terminal. No issues at all. Great update ! :slight_smile:


#20

https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/52416

seems related to infinality… are you using it?


#21

Try to change the mirrors priorities… I had to play with the mirrors list for 15 minutes until I found one working. The repo list of updated mirrors seems not accurate for the moment.
